I did same thing! I took Tom Simpson 3 day. Met Mark Finklestein there as well. I continued to take lessons from Mark periodically, roughly 4 times per year over at Slate. Matter of fact, I have a lesson with him this Thursday night! I tried to connect with Scott over at SBX this year, but wasn't able to. I hear great things about him and would like to take a lesson from him someday. I am in CT.
