We're going to have a tremendous crowd in Georgia just like we did in Sarasota. 12,000 people, an all-time record but double. We're going to have a tremendous crowd. I'm literally leaving right now. Because the meeting went so much longer, and it went longer because of the love. It didn't go longer for other reasons. There were unbelievable solutions, I think, to problem that we will solve that other people won't be able to solve."
