Horner's book "The Complete T.Rex" is a good read if you are interested in
the latest theories on this. I'd like to know if these theories have been
applied to specimens of what are thought to be T.Rex juveniles.

The mention of the word "Dinofest" caught my eye. Can you describe this event?
Is it open to the general public?

Thanks,  ...Dave Jones
