QBC 2023 in review.

 First of all before I get into he day, I want to thank our QBC family. All our volunteers wearing the staff shirts aren't some strangers that we get applications from off the street. These are legit our friends and family who give up their Saturday to help me and Dan out every QBC. I'd like to thank my wife, my friends Randy, Annmarie, MJ, Nancy, Jessie, Caitlin, Joe, Pete, Bianca, Laura, Elvis and our friends who have been with us in the past years but couldn't make it this year. Thank you to Katch Astoria for being a great food concessioner and providing a great menu. I want to thank our vendors like Coach's Collectibles and Brian Kong and many more I'll have to hit up Dan later for their names. Thank you SNY for the talent they send every year as part of our partnership with them. Thanks to the NY POST for sending Jake and Figgy. Thanks to Lori Rubinson, Roger Clark, John Saponaro and Matt Ibanez for hosting great player panels. Special thanks to John Saponaro who comes in every year and kills it for us as out host. I want to thank Cliff Terry and Billy for being awesome guests. I want to thank SNY, NY POST, CORONA, ZIP CHAIR, and SEND in the CLOWNSI. am sure I have forgotten someone and I'll make it up to you later, but I also want to thank our fellow fans who love this event and come back year after year. It makes all the heard work and hours putting this together year after worth it.

This is an email we got today from an attendee yesterday and I wanted to share it

Hi Keith.

First, it was really nice meeting you at QBC yesterday. 
I really have to tell you how much I enjoyed the QBC.  I loved the interviews. The moderators did such an amazing job.  Meeting the players and Terry made me feel like a 10 year old kid again. It was so much fun. I just wanted to thank you and your amazing team for all you do. This was my first QBC, but it certainly will not be my last.  Once you announce the date for next year, I will be sure to block it on my calendar.    

All the best to you Keith. QBC has already made the off season better for me.  :-)
Kind regards. 

Getting this email this morning makes me smile. And a lot of you know I don't smile often. Again, this wouldn't be possible without our QBC family and our fellow fans.
