    It does not. Why, you ask? Nobody really wants all the secrets pushed out to the internet for millions of people to digest. We like keeping them to a smaller crowd of fanatical flyers. :D

    lol! I just noticed that this costs money to attend. Sorry about that. Wouldn't have asked for a vid if I'd picked up on that sooner. Might be worth adding to the OP.
