There were lots of people out playing golf that morning. I have no game when it comes to golf (I swing a club more like a baseball bat), but I can see why people enjoy the sport. The flight of a well-struck golf ball is a beautiful thing. It travels far and seems to almost defy gravity.
For the rest of the morning, I would stay with the van, answering questions for some of the people who were browsing around. In the afternoon, I was invited in to the conference room to hear the keynote speakers. Here, I got to meet Governor George Pataki. I liked a lot of what he had to say about local government's efforts to implement more responsible usage of resources. In the town of Smithtown, the entire fleet of garbage trucks is now powered by natural gas and a filling station has been constructed. I applaud the forward thinking. This was quite an uplifting day.
