My knowledge is lacking and I am new to skinning so probably slower than you. However, I've got my AIARE 1 scheduled for Feb and am working on dialling my processes to be fast on the transitions. Clearly I'm a good partner as is evident by this great communication. ;) You game?
Even if we don't get out there together it'd still be great to build some community with other people in the area, so shoot me a message anyways!
