“I wanted to tell you again how 'over the top' the Colorado Springs event was...I am so impressed with Colorado Springs as destination, The Broadmoor is deserving of all the accolades and the other hotels and facilities we saw were all impressive. Thanks for all the work you did setting up such a great agenda. Oh, I forgot to mention the food...I have told so many people about the diverse menus...Duck, Elk and Bison!
