Who will be there?

Kelly and I are planning to attend again this year.

EDIT:
I'm guessing that Kelly and I will not be there this year... This is going to hurt! I really hope things change and we can go but right now its not looking to good.

Sorry to hear you folks can't make it.

I will be going. I will look for other members to say hello to...

As always, I am looking forward to a great time.

I am going to the Mid-Altlantic's show in Reading tomorrow. I will post a thread to see if anyone else is going there.

Ok, so. I am not a beer person, but I really enjoy having a couple of Tim's beers in the WIX corral.
The other day Shannon and I were talking about how our brewmaster bro might not make it, and what we should do.

This is what we came up with...

We should plan on bringing a 12 pack of your local favorite. From where ever you like, to share with the bunch.
Or we could just enjoy a little Gennie at Gennie. What do you think of that?
I know this wont work for the people who are not driving there, cuz its not a great carry on, but I can make room in the Rav4.

:drink3:

Its a few weeks away, and I gotta go get some Champagne for Saturday morning. :)

ROLL CALL?

Anybody know if this Geneseo is happening this year, I've heard conflicting reports about it's being cancelled due to soaked airfield. Anybody have any info?

As it stands right now it looks like I'll be going, unless its cancelled of course.

Yeup! Couple wet spots, but we've managed to accommodate to them.
