"Quit counting the shrimp!" Monty Lunde remembers Peter Chernack

The real, personal relationship between me and Peter Chernack started in 1991 when I had the crazy notion of pulling our industry together into what became the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). Well, that lit a fire… in Peter, and in several other key professionals in our industry. Since I was the first president of the TEA and, at that time, truly deathly afraid of public speaking, I quickly appreciated Peter’s intellect and ability to articulate why the TEA existed and the benefits the freshly minted organization brought to our unique business community. It was all quite evangelical at the time and Peter was an incredible spokesperson. Bending the ear of any and all, Peter possessed the oration skills of the most experienced trial lawyer, salted with passion and a sincere desire to help Themed Entertainment professionals grow and flourish. -- Monty Lunde
