The Greek definition of Symposium is actually a drinking party, and I am pretty sure if that's what we advertised we would have had a lot more participants. Non the less all the classes were full for all 4 days and we had a great time without the drink during the day, at night  well that's another story.
Ben Lawry, Helen Wilson and Roddy McDowell were the leading instructors,and they each brought their own unique styles with them.
I was lucky enough to get to spend a day with each of them and what great days they were.
Helen managed to get us doing  storm rolls for the first time , she is a great teacher and has the ability to break down the rolls into their components and then show you how to do each part, in the end all you have to do is to stitch the bits together and there you go.Now we just have to practice and refine the rolls before we loose them. That's the problem with rolling, if you don't use it you tend to loose it.
