Unfortunately, as usual, I will have to decline. Last minute setup stuff ya know!
I don't know if I'll see everyone at the show. If not, have a great time!!!!! And remember to thank a volunteer :D

It takes over 300 volunteers to make this great show happen. They all deserve our praise and thanks for a job well done.

I'm aiming to be there, thanks to Mike, looking forward to meeting a few new WIX members and my first Chino Show the following day. Thanks for setting this up Roger!

And it looks like this should also be the first 'xdk' multi-case meet, where 'x' is the unknown quantity, and standing for Brandon or James. ;)

The first WIX members who catch me over the weekend and say they reckon I'm JDK will score a small aeronautically themed souvenir (until I run out).

Regards,

It may well be, but 'reckon' still isn't an Americanism, but used in with variants in most Englishes

Either I'm very worldly, or many items on that list attributed as being Australinisms have been in common usage here in the US for many years. Sounds like you'll do OK up here! :wink:

Obviously, you're very worldly.

Happy to discuss the exciting difference between Australian, Canadian, New Zealand, British and US English at great length, but I'll buy you a beer first...

Anyone making name tags so I can recognize everyone (myself included)? JDK is the guy that talks funny, that I'll be able to figure out!
