Bump......

If we can't garner a minimum of a half dozen participants there seems to be no point in attempting this meet & greet....

Arnie, I am hoping to commit to this soon, but I can't just yet. In the middle of house shopping (putting in an offer tomorrow) and my Mom is in the middle of a planned move as well, so it's highly likely I will be moving or helping my Mom move that weekend (or both, yuck).

Change that I should know today. Possible employer will tell me today if I have a job with them or not. That is my deciding factor.

Well Arnie, I close on the new house June 15th, so it is safe to say I will be a little busy the 16th and 17th! :Eyecrazy:

I will keep looking for some opportunities to get over there this summer!

What ended up being the final word on this weekend are we on for a meet and greet or is there not enough people interested or able to make it? Trying to make plans and reservations but was unsure of the final word.
