Looks like some good people to me. Lots of national demo team members. And bergie is from CO so I'd expect the over weighting to be in his area. With that, one problem with the list that I see is that many of these people probably rarely work with the general public. I know kevin in particular is a friend of mine and he spends almost all his time training instructors. Of course that is gonna happen. the cream rises to the top and the top trains the rest of us to work with the public. I'm not sure if it's ideal though. Seems like the instructors can loose touch with the front line and the clients loose because they don't get to learn from some of the best.
In some ways this idea goes back to Bob Barnes idea of educating the customer. If people knew what they were looking for and requested guys like kevin mitchel, bob barnes and off couse wade holiday (OK maybe I'm not quite in that catagory yet) then the clients would get a great product and the career professional instructor could demand more cash. Seems I end up on this tangent often, but hey, it's important.
So, ryel, bergie definitly has a good eye for talent, so I wouldn't downplay his list. Just remember that as a former demo team member, he is more in the system than out of it. One of my top 10, Eric Delauriers, would never make his list since eric is outside of the psia system. Anyway, enough of this. Until later,
