"The study group provides an excellent environment to discuss some of the most fundamental problems of our industry with complete confidentiality. There is no fear of expressing a weakness or strength to a potential competitor and thus the exchange of ideas is totally candid and uninhibited. This results in a very open and beneficial problem solving forum."

-- David Sutton, Tiger Fuel Co., Charlottesville, Virginia
