    Thanks so much for providing such a wonderful Scotch Tasting event on Friday evening for the Canadian Association of Radiologists. Everyone had a great time and you selection of scotch (or should I say whiskey) was a huge hit. The extra traffic in the exhibit area was greatly appreciated by all of the sponsors… and I know the President and the CEO really enjoy the event. You certainly provided the attendees at the conference something a little out of the norm!
