"I’ve always heard of CLIP and everyone that I know that has attended says it’s great. But that’s all they ever say. When you ask why, they say, “it’s just great”. I equated it to fight club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club! I feel tremendously honored to be a part of the CLIP Fight Club!

I now know why people don’t give details when talking about CLIP. It’s so personal that people hold it sacred to them and they don’t want to share something that’s so special to them."
