    No, it's evening. How late do you get up anyway?

    Never too early. Quite surprised it hasn’t already been decided.

    Cool. This time I will put it on the calendar. That’s October, right?

    Yeah, but remember, part of what killed Gaston’s ‘18 (besides the horrid weather) was that nobody had made a reservation.

    If you decide to have this a week earlier I could enjoy joining you. The second week is typically the NIFA air meet where I volunteer my time to help college flying students. Weather will likely be better too. I understand if you do not though.

    This far out, I think we can be flexible on which weekend of October. You've got my vote for any weekend in October.

    Yeah, I’m not locked in to anything but tradition. But tradition can be changed. What says POA?

    I was over there for Thanksgiving, but had to suffer the indignity of DRIVING to Gaston’s due to the volume of crap I was taking with me

    Looks like the weekends of the 7th and 21st would work best for me. It's starting to get a little chilly around then, so perhaps the earlier date would be better???

    Moving, bro. Bought a new house and just moved in last Friday. Been mighty busy getting the old one ready to sell, and buying, moving, and settling into the new one. Went without internet for a while and don't do much POA-ing on my phone. Also spent about a month doing what I could to help my mom take care of my grandmother who has pretty severe dimentia and needed 24/7 care for a while.

    I'm sure you weren't looking for the long answer, but that's the scoop. None of it conducive to recreation.

    Now offering reverse discounts.
    Just like when it was switched from June to October. Which was a good choice because the one's in June were too hot and mosquitoey
