  Marcia and I were at Banjo Camp North in May, 2003. We sat in on one of
Bill's classes. We were so impressed with his presentation and diagrams
that when the class was over, we asked him to sign the flip chart pages
instead of tossing them. He was amused and, I think, flattered. They've
been kept safe in a mailing tube since then. When he passed, we thought
we should frame them and share them. We'll have them at Joe Val, and at
Guitar & Mandolin Camp North in April, and Banjo Camp North in May.
