    Yes, thanks Mike for getting the Plunge all set-up. (also, let us know what happens with the newspaper) RJ and Pete - nice to meet you guys. Katie - thanks for the ride.

    Great friends, great times, great food, and some even better wine! Hopefully we can get something put together before I have to go home to Texas, even if it is to just chill out and watch movies. Hope to see everyone soon, if not IRL, then perhaps on the boards!

    Thanks all for the great time.

    RJ and Pete have started their trek back down to Jersey.

    Zac - let us know when you leave for Texas. I know that there are some events planned for May 6th and 7th...

    Thanks to everyone. The Finger Lakes times posted their article on the event on the web at [link=http://www.fltimes.com/main.asp?FromHome=1&TypeID=1&ArticleID=11416&SectionID=38&SubSectionID=121]http://www.fltimes.com/main.asp?FromHome=1&TypeID=1&ArticleID=11416&SectionID=38&SubSectionID=121[/link]

    They got most things right, not quite. As you can see Pete is from Dansville and I live in Geneva, but hey...

    I am working on copies.

    Cheers.
    Mike

    Cool article! I made a print-out for the scrapbook.

    I posted all the pictures from my camera [link=http://www.rochesterfandom.com/phpBB2/gallery2.php?g2_view=core.ShowItem&g2_itemId=24679]here[/link].
    I also set-up T_StarFlyer and Recaf2000 with access so if you guys want to put pictures in that album - feel free. Just dump them in there and I'll rearrange them to chronological order. I'd especially like a couple from Casa Larga since I didn't bring my camera in with me.

IN the continuation on page 4A there's another pic that mentions some of us, is a great pic of Zac, Katie, Scotty, Darren, some of my side.

    The paper offered extra copies to me this afternoon if I show up in armor... I suppose I can at least get a few with just my bucket.

    We shall see....

    How long is their offer good for?

    I don't presume that you carry your armor (or bucket) around in your car to be able to quench that spur of the moment "I feel like trooping" urge. ;-)

    Well it had to happen sooner or later. Did anybody happen to come across my bucket's rangefinder in their bag when they got home from this.

    I had wanted to upgrade it anyway so this isn't the end of the world but the timing is annoying.

    lemme know.

    I was going to say, based on the pictures from the event you definitely had it after the playground. So it must have been when you de-armored.

    Yes! Thanks gals & T_StarFlyer for adding their photos to the album. I think I mostly got them in chronological order. We now have a 175 photos for the days events!
