    Hi Everyone-

    Just wanted to give an update to what's been going on with us. Last week we were in Vegas for the annual trophy convention. It went well, and we have some very nice awards coming this year.

    Monday my dad had knee replacement surgery. The surgery went well, but he hasn't been doing too well since the surgery. It's been a difficult time for us, and we have gotten very behind on orders and emails. I'm doing my best to get caught up.

    Thank you for your understanding!
    -Gene

    Thanks for the update. Best wishes and fast recovery to your dad. I know what you're going through, b/c my dad had a hip surgery some years ago, and has not recovered well either.

    Absolutely family first, business is just that, business, work. Without family, there is nothing for that business to support and grow.

    Thoughts with you Gene, your business will be waiting for you when you are available to put all you have into it again.

    I e-mailed him about a small set of commemorative chips to give out at my tourney in a couple weeks. I didn't get an update on his personal situation, but he's still working hard on his orders and got back to me pretty quickly. Hope everything else is ok. :)
