One of the things I liked about Animal Farm was that the timing was much better than any of the other shows. The WISPA shows are late enough in the spring that the weather is already getting nice enough to be doing (non-essential) tower work, and early enough in the fall that it's still nice out. I wish they'd move WISPAmerica up to late January/early February.
