AWESOME, is the only word to describe the seminar Don gave Saturday at the Radisson. I could not believe how quickly the time flew by. I looked at my watch to see if we might be going to take a mid-session break during Dons presentation and it was 11:50 !! We were almost out of time!! Wait a minute, I wanted to learn more!!

Thanks Don for taking the time to put together the information for the seminar. I stayed with you pretty good until we started learning about the photon spectrum and nanometers. You were moving so quickly by then, I was not getting it all. Still great stuff though. I have a new appreciation for you and your research. I was NOT disappointed with the information you presented. YES, we do need to operate our Salons responseably and maintain accurate records of what we do.

Please keep us informed of the meeting time with FDA. I WILL make an effort to attend, but I need to know the dates in advance, to get vacation time off.

It is a shame we didn't have thousands to hear the important message you presented. I fully agree with your approach of working with the regulators instead of the politicians, on making our case. Being associated with the Nuclear industry, I know it's all about record keeping, and presenting the facts. If you can present scientific facts and back them up, regulators WILL take note and LISTEN. They do need to know this is not a ONE man campaign.
Working with or through politicians in this arean is a waste of time, they change with every other election. You are on the RIGHT track with your approach. GO Don GO!!

Steve, thanks for providing the meter for the drawing! Thanks to the other distributors that provided items for the drawings as well. That was like icing on the cake!! I can't wait to put that 7.0 meter to use and learn more about what my beds are doing and how they are performing.
Now to get one of those Pocketspec meters... cute little devices aren't they??

I want to personally THANK Christine and anyone else responsible for setting the meeting up and making the arrangements with Radisson.
It was nice to meet you guys and put a face to the names I kept seeing on this website.

bsmart, gosh, dang it, i don't remember your face. Glad you won the meter. You will really enjoy having it.

I remember looking back to see who won, but I didn't see who it was handed to. Next time we are at an event, come up and introduce yourself to me. Okay?

This talk was a very enlightening session. I only hope this was the first of a series Don. Christine did a wonderful job of getting this organized. Next time we need a larger room and more bodies to attend.
I think I heard Chris mention another one at the next Vegas Show... Let's do it!

Shari was suppose to do a taping of it, but she had an emergency at her home. This was unfortunate for us but she really is the one that needs our understanding. Shari, I hope all is okay.

This class was so awesome. I learned so much. I am with bsmart on the photons and charts. My brain doesn't absorb all that very easily and I could feel my eyes start to glaze over. I really tried hard to concentrate. I am so glad we have the information in print to refer to. I felt really good to realize that we are already doing almost all of what Don recommends as voluntary self regulation steps. The rest of it is being implemented today.

Don, Thanks to you from the bottom of my heart for all you do for our industry and to Christine' for all the blood, sweat & tears that went into making this meeting possible.

Great job Don.. you know that stuff so well now you can speak without notes for two hours.

You'd have enjoyed the Doc Hollick talk Sunday AM too, if you hadn't had to leave Sat afternoon. Great correlation data between MEDs and IU's of Vitamin D.

Oh dang Steve, I completely forgot Doc Hollick. I meant to go to that. Maybe you could forward the information on to us....???

Does anyone know if Doc's session is on the video tapes that Smart Tan is selling? Guess I could go look see,,,,

Don you did a great job. I wish there had been a video because I didn`t get much sleep and was having a hard time focusing.

Chris what can I say? You deserve the "Award of the Year" You did a super job organizing this great event and you should be very proud.

My GM came with me and she was very impressed. She could not stop talking about it. She said this was indeed the best educational event of the show.

Don thank you for everything you are doing. We need to do this again in Vegas. Next time we need to get more involved. "Together We Can Make A Difference"

There were no handouts or tape, unfortunately. But he does have a website (which I haven't had time to try yet): www.bioeffectsoflight.org .

I wrote down that he said 1 MED = 10000 IU's of vitamin D... that sounds like a lot! We "need" ~400 IU's per day.

Boy, im just sitting here envious as heck. Becky and I were supposed to attend, but last minute family stuff came up. I hope I did'nt hear their was'nt a tape made??? I hope not, if not however, the info will surfice. Glad to you all had a good time. Christine, Becky should be contacting you for the info from the meeting. Thanks again for all of your hard work and dedication to our industry. And Don, hope this will persuade the masses to get behind your cause and start to support the institute!!!
