Sounds like a great idea...Feb. 12th at the Lincoln monument?? Keep me
abreast and I've already put it on my calendar. It would be nice to invite
members. I would vote for the Hard Times on King Street but anyplace is
fine. At worst it will be you and I and perhaps a few locals I know. If
we don't meet before then at least we have a starting time and a good
event. Thanks for the invite and heads-up. John
