    Everyone planning to this event, post who, which day, etc. Let's start a list!

    I'm planning to go, but before I decide which day I'd like to hear what everyone else thinks!

    I sent in the registration form today for Saturday, April 27th. Hopefully we can all meet there, but I was kind of planning to go anyway.

    We sent in ours last night after work. You know, this thing would be a good oppurtunity to find potential members.

    I'll definitely be going, possibly both days. I want to get a back-to-back photo with Mr. Mayhew. [face_laugh]

    Has any one nailed down a day and a time?

    I think I would prefer Saturday but Sunday would work as well. I?ll be there regardless.

    How does sat at 1:00 sound?

    I shall do my best to be there; however, I am involved in a golf tournament that morning. Depending on what time we are planning on meeting, I may make it for all, some, or none.

    I'll let you know as soon as we get a time for meeting at MSOE.

    The newsletter I will be posting today or tomorrow at the website, has Sat. as the day to go, it was my understanding that day was picked. I think since some have already purchased tickets for Sat.,it would be the best day. Don't forget, we need @least 5 people who were there yesterday or are interested in joining us to be at the same place at the same time for this to be concidered a meeting. Please let me or Que4zone know, if possible before tomorrow night so we can get the info. up at the website and posted here. Thanks all!

    This is from Jenni, concerning the MSOE schedule for the weekend of the 27th & 28th. She wanted to get this out right away, and she couldn't post from work, so she emailed me.
