    Gary,

    This is truly amazing! When you first announced GPO you stated that it was just the beginning. And boy, did you mean it. You\'ve made GPO a great community to be involved with. And competitions like this are going to push all to grow and do our best. And did I read the heading correctly? \"First Annual GPO Orchestration Competition\" Life is good.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Do any other sample library creators do such things for their user community? Somehow I think not! Just another reason why Garritan is the best!

    I know I\'ll be entering!
