In the front row are Daniel Gove of Byram, Connecticut, and Jeff Silverman of Randallstown, Maryland. Between them in the back row is Trudy Roles from Kernan Hospital in Baltimore.

We gave Dan the 'Seasoned Traveler' award for his mastery of the New York City mass transit system!

Revelers at the Gathering found themselves stopping in mid-sentence upon seeing Jeff Silverman's bulging quadriceps and hamstrings muscles (built by REGYS!?). Jeff was demure when asked if his gluteal muscles were equally as impressive.

Bob Shapley's dominance at the awards ceremony was impressive. Here Sharon Cook presents him with one of his three awards, this one for 'Most Idyllic ERGYS Setting.' We are thinking of having the next ERGYS Gathering at Bob's house, which happens to be on a beach on Hawaii's big island. It's a harsh environment for the ERGYS, but not bad at all for the human spirit.

James Schorey and Teresa & Jeff Pinkow TAI president James Schorey (left) visits with our good friends Jeff and Teresa Pinkow. Jeff and Teresa are tireless advocates of SCI research, and they've been great "ERGYS Enthusiasts" to boot. Kudos to Jeff for his generosity with his time and his cigars!
