5th Annual Brick Wall Busters (2014)


Our Sixth Annual "Brick Wall Busters" session was held on 24 November 2014.

Members were asked to submit Brick Wall Queries. Six queries were selected for Virginia "Ginny" Clark, C.G.(C), Douglas Cochrane, C.D., B.A., C.G.(C) and Dr. Allan Marble, C.G.(C) to analyze and make suggestions for how to further the research and hopefully, break down the Brick Walls.
