this is Scott Hudspeth. I interviewed with you in the Fall of 2007 for the Boulder ChopHouse AGM position.
How have you been? I wasn't sure if you had stayed with RockBottom after all their corporate cuts shortly after we had been meeting. So nice to see you are still with such a great company!
I would love to speak with you and catch up with where you and Rock Bottom are at ,in light of the last two years "perfect storm" of economic challenges in our industry.
I hope all is well. I would still like to let you know what I have been up to and talk with you about any current opportunities with your wonderful company. Hope to hear from you, take care. Scott :)
