    Just filled up the gas grill with those lava rocks so we can put the heat to the meat on Friday...weather providing. Looks sketchy at the moment. Let's hope for the bestest.

    What's your back-up date if Friday gets rained out?

    You _do_ have a back-up date, don't you?

    any idea as to when a decision would be made to call "the game" on account of rain?

    I don't have a "Rain-Date" per-se, as I have to rely on other CF'ers to come through with some of the necessary items for the event (Hazmatt & Tara). So, I'd probably just move it to the next scheduled event and the movie scheduled for the Fall would just fall off the end (Sorry LOTR).

    I will make the call here at work on Friday at 4:00. That should give people who were going to drive in from the Outer Rim plenty of time to know if they want to drive in or not.

    I don't know if I will be there Friday... I'm going drinking right after work, and may not be in any condition to drive down to Dave's place in time for the movie. ;)

    So I'm hoping it rains... problem solved!

    Well, SG, the calendar at CF.org is dependent on our webmaster for updating, and he's kinda lax about it sometimes.... ;)

    Well, it's looking grim, as we may be catching the last few hours of bad weather for the week at the end of our movie. However, the radio's been saying it'll clear up sooner. Check back here at 4pm for the final call.

    Everyone bailed on the glorious Los Straitjackets show tonight, so if the weather holds up, I'll most likely be there.

    If it doesn't rain I & my son will be there. If it does rain we're going to go see Shrek 2.

    OK, It's A GO!

    I'd still say bring your rain-gear, but it's calling for scattered, and it's been dry here all day (though overcast). I'd guess if it does rain, it'll pass quickly.

    See you all between 7-9

    Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'll be able to make it to this one. It's my friend's birthday and since I had to bail on them last night I promised him I'd hang with him tonight (I don't get to see him that often). But on the upside of not being there, by not coming tonight I'll have waaaay more liquor for ROTJ. Hmmmm, a drunken chorus of "Yub Nub" could be video worthy!

    No, you need a CAR! Or at least a Vespa, yeah a Vespa would do nicely for you. You could cruise around going "Ciao!" all day. LOL. What an image!
