Well, with the name changes many of you have done, I lost track of who is in and who is out. I guess I'll just take a roll call a few days before the event...
Here's an update on the 'venue':
Our house is officially listed, but even if it sells, I'm 99 percent sure we'll still be there on the 18th. At which point I won't care if you guys trash the place (kidding!). Oh, and if the house isn't sold yet, my agent will be there handing out her cards
So the biggest thing to watch now is the weather.
I'll be in touch with some of you in the next week or 2 to start organizing the help - I'm sure I'll need lots of it. Maybe a few of us could meet over a burger and beer and work out the 'plan'?
Depending on what time things get started with the event I could help set up. I do know that I have to be heading home by 6:00 pm. I'll be glad to bring my own meat and some chips/dips for everyone else. Maybe everyone can bring pot luck style food. Let me know what happens. And is it for sure on the 18th?
We are on for the 18th. If the weather is bad and the rivers blown out, we will probably cancel, or the 'die hards' can meet at rattlesnake lake to at least do a little fishing and do the whole 'meet and greet' thing. Do they have covered areas for cooking\eating?
Chad, I've held off committing to a volunteer position for the Snoqualmie event because my daughter is close to the end of a difficult pregnacy. They are inducing labor as we speak so my bride and I are away in the morning to be with her.
Sorry I will not make the event or be able to follow through on my commitment to help. Hope you folks have a great time! I'll be thinking of you. Bert
