    Default FDIC.....who's going?

    I have not decided yet if I 'm going to make the drive from cheeseland, but if I do, it'd be great to get together with some of you and have a cold one or 10. So....who's goin?

    I will be there. Hope to have a big group of forum members attend and get together to meet. When time gets closer we will have to make a plan.

    Default Sorry I missed ya Bob.

    Sorry I didn't try harder to find ya Bob.

    Did you go down to Soulard on Saturday? I didn't see you among the 750,000 (or so) other people down there. My vision wasn't real good after about 2:00 in the afternoon.

    I will find you next time I'm in the city, I promise.


    .....You gonna be at FDIC?

    Ya..we were down there...Wife and I spent 2 hours trying to find my niece and nephew in a 2 block area..we were never more than 30 feet from them and never saw them.

    Finally met up with them at E11(right there on Broadway) where we parked.

    Won't make it to FDIC this year. I'm gonna try to get there in '07!

    BTW....Do you happen to know a Captain at GFD W Harris ?

    Last I talked to him he was at E3. I'd liked to get ahold of him.

    Default Friday Night Corn Beef and Beer Bash

    Akron Brass is having their annual Corn Beef and Beer event on Friday Night at the Weston immediately after the Tradeshow. It is open to anyone and is a pretty good time. Lots of free beer and good people to chat with. This will be my 6th year attending this event. Maybe I'll meet some of you there.
