Last September, I mentioned Dan Meers in this column. I said if things go well, KC Wolf would make an appearance to cheer on the Kansas City Chiefs in February's Super Bowl in Arizona. A few weeks later, we booked Dan Meers as a guest speaker for a training event for Team SEMO on February 20, 2023. Wow.
