    Better tell your emergency management to get the snow plows ready.

    Is there a minimum? I have not booked a room for the weekend, I've been holding off to make sure there are enough people. I delivered that fax sheet to the surrounding counties.

    Cool high of 12 for Friday in Buffalo

    Is there talk of Delmonico's? That's worth the drive just for a steak and a pasta side. All I'll have to do is follow the snow plow down the thruway to get there. Jumping from Victor to Tampa this year for workshops but that doesn't count out a ride for dinner at Delmonico's next weekend. Maybe we'll hit the thruway for a dinner ride.

    sounds good!

    Lets see how long it takes to get from Albany to Rochester in a big red explorer with lights....

    Delmonico's is very good. 15 oz of red meat will make any firefighter happy!

    Followed of course by copious quantities of carbonated fermented beverages.

    Always a good idea to have an ally on your board that knows what you can and cannot go for. He runs interference for you with the other board members and then it is not just you saying this is how it needs to be.
