Great job John. As time goes on and new folks join in a group, the history often gets lost. I've seen it in our 20 year old local Guild. Newbies, not meaning any harm, constantly try to introduce new ideas that we already tried years ago. I live on an island, a large one, been here 40 years now, given many workshops and classes,and I've had many people try to introduce me to ideas that I know I originated. I've been shown instruments with design elements lifted from my own, without the builder having any idea of where the idea came from. At first it ticked me off a bit, but in time I learned to take it as a form of flattery. It happens. Can't take it personal. I always try to clearly acknowledge other builders who have helped me and give credit where credit is due. That's the best one can do. You have helped me too, and I appreciate that.--Bob
