Dear Minnie:

As I continue to enjoy the remarkable audience response (and positive show ratings) for some of your recent projects at Sea World® San Antonio, I am reminded once again of why Busch Entertainment Corporation has relied on your skills for so many years. As always, your approach has been calm, focused and in every respect professional. Beyond your extraordinary talents as a director and choreographer I wspecially appreciate your work behind the scenes with the productions staff, cast and crew; you accomplish what any producer/consultant should accomplish for a client: you make my life ever so much simpler.

You have brought a level of excellence to our park that we've seldom seen. Your continued work on our Howl-O-Scream® product this season allowed us to present a style and quality of show that otherwise would have been difficult or impossible to stage.

As always, we especially appreciate your considered kindness to staff and crew as well as your incredible work ethic and extraordinary eye for detail, pacing and performance. On behalf of the entire Entertainment department, thank you for your exceptional work; the results speak for themselves.

Best Wishes for Continued Success,

Doug MinerdVice President of EntertainmentSea World® San Antonio
