    Hoping to hear all about this clinic! I was supposed to be in Moab over the weekend but had a change of plans. I live in Vermont and your neighbor Marcy is a good friend of mine. I’m way overdo for a visit to Moab and would like to come over and introduce myself when I’m on vacation, maybe in the spring. Have a great day, Stephanie
