If so, we'll see.  Put me as tentative. That's a long way off.

Hey Bob,

 

Any chance to move this? I'm in entirely in, on another day.

Outthere, Steve- We'll have to get something going out west at a later date. Sorry you can't make it.

Carly- Welcome! Happy to have you.

Greg- The 13th was just a working date. I was thinking a Monday in September or even late August.

What works for everyone?

OK, sounds good. September might be easier.

 

On a slightly different front. I have a set of mags, 1979 Cali Cabs - don't know if anyone would be interested in joining me when it's time, probably also in September, to pop them but if so let me know. It can either be training for this or a great follow up!

He Bob - there's a pretty good chance I'll be in Austria/Hungary first week in Sept.  At least that's what I'm hoping right now.  That's a little earlier than I thought, so the 13th is actually going to be OK, at least as things stand today.  Any time later is better tho, so just post the date.

Greg - I understand your shame in drinking that NZ wine, but really, you didn't have to go all the way to Colorado for it.  You could have just done it in the restroom like so many others do. . .

GDP - I'm certainly interested in the '79. What did you have in mind.

How is Sept 20th for everyone for the Sojourn dinner?

Also, can I edit the first post with updates?

Ha, that is funy!, But just let us know when you'll be here and I would be happy to share some wine with you. I've stickied this to the top of the list, just to keep it in  view during planning.
