    Wow, I sure wish I could go!!! Unfortunately, I live in Montana, not California, and I just bought a new camcorder, so it won't work out financially either. I wish the best to the winner!

  2. $ 300 is a lot of money for just one day without any book or reference material. You can see stuff like that on youTube.
