Schumi Toronto

Uh-ha NC! I finally found F.C.W.! If you recall, I was trying to find-out who he is, so that maybe we can meet for a beer here in Toronto sometime! Just call me “Cluso” from now on! You did tell me that it really wasn’t hard to figure-out! LOL! You might have told me that it’s right here on the F1B site …. right under my nose! I’ve contacted him via LinkedIn. I’ll let you know, if and when I meet up with him.
