Random thoughts

by Chuck Jones

This blog has been up and running since Dec 20, 2011. In that four month period we have had over 1,500 page views.  Not so many comments though. I would like to thank those of you who have visited us and I hope you found some value in what we have offered so far.

I’m very interested in knowing what you readers think of this blog. Are we covering the kind of things you are interested in? Are there other stroke related topics that you would like to see posted here? 

This year we will be having a very busy schedule for our camps. If you look at the links on the left of your screen you will see one for “Stroke Camp Dates”. Follow that link and you’ll get the exact dates. So far we have 18 confirmed camps scheduled for 2012, with more on the way. We are expecting 25 before the year is out. We actually have four weekends where two camps will be going on simultaneously. The camps will start out in April in Iowa and progress through Illinois, Florida, Colorado, Missouri, Kentucky, Nebraska, Arizona, and end the year in October in Odessa, Texas. Yes, that’s a lot. We are also working to have camps for Omaha, Nebraska, Savannah, Georgia, Wilmington, North Carolina and Houston Texas.

Not only are we conducting these camps but we also started to display ELSIE and her MegaBrain this year around the country. You may have read about that in an earlier post on this blog. I hope you have. If you haven't, look to the right side of your screen and click on February within the Archives. A posting called "ELSIE and Her MegaBrain" will be found there. It seems major baseball teams are interested in our display so this year we are working to have displays at a San Diego Padres game, an Arizona Diamondbacks game and a Colorado Rockies game. We are getting requests from other teams as well but nothing is finalized for them, yet. We also have requests for a couple minor league games: Odessa, Texas Rockhounds and Ceder Rapids, Iowa Kernels. These and a couple fairs in Kentucky will keep the MegaBrain (and us) moving all year.

All-in-all it’s going to be a great year and I hope you are able to join us in at least one of these camps and exhibits.
