Even better, the Hilliers are in town this weekend. We have lessons on Saturday.
The crazy thing is, that acording to the master schedule there are still slots open with both. I just don't get it. A former World Champion and his wife (who is darn good too) come all the way over from England to teach, and two days before they're still not fully booked. There are plenty of competative couples in the area, and you just can't get coaching like this in the states, so why aren't they signing up? Madness.
I guess its a difference in priorities. Last year Warren and I drove eight hours through a snowstorn to Pittsburgh (staying overnight) so that we could get two hours worth of lessons with Hazel Newberry. We then drove eight hours back to Boston so that we could leave on our planned vacation to China. We knew that was a little nuts, but Hazel really is worth it. You'd think more people who actually live in Boston would go ahead and book lessons with the Hilliers.
