The Saturday luncheon was a vast improvement over last years event. There were no long speeches and over all everything ran smoothly. Kathy Moreau welcomed everyone and said her partner was locked up in a box. A guy walks in, in a large Barbie box. This was to commemorate Kens 40th Anniversary. He looked cute wearing a bathing suit and large wrist tag. Lunch was a special cut of duck, veggies and potatoes.The BMAA Int.award winners were announced and new friend Katsuko from Japan won 1st place in the international division for a Barbie she did. It was thrilling! Next Kathy Moreau announced Ashton Drake was giving all attendees free "Gold Sensation" outfits.
