4/16/09   A message from Scott Bakula:
To everyone involved in "The  Leap Back" convention,
     Thank you all for your hard work (producers, staff and volunteers!) and thanks to everyone who bought tickets and memorabilia and participated in the event! The programs and interviews and artwork were very well done and classy! A special thank you to all the Q.L. guest stars and to the old Q.L. team who gave so generously of their time! I will treasure the beautiful glass commemorative "award", while  acknowledging that EVERYONE involved with the convention had a hand in making Sam a "Timeless Character"!
     And a very special nod to my friend and publicist of many, many years, Jay Schwartz, who not only won the trivia contest, but I think at times loves the show more than all of us! He worked tirelessly behind the scenes (and in front!) to help make the weekend a success!
     Good luck and good health to you all, and again..... Thanks for the Memories!!!

Hello Leapers! It’s been a pleasure serving you and celebrating with you as the President and CEO of The Leap Back 2009, Inc. As of January 1st, 2010, the corporation will be closed and I’ll go back to being “Al’s Place Bartender” but it’s been a great experience for me overall and I thank you for all your support over these past few years from the first day we opened in July of 2006 up until now. I look forward to being with you as we continue to celebrate Quantum Leap and our wonderful fandom. Please enjoy the DVD of the convention and thank you again for the memories we’ve had, and in advance for the continued enjoyment of this amazing program that we’ll have in the future. I’ll see you over at Al’s Place soon I hope!
