I hope you can make it CRXguy, it'd be great to have some out of towners attend.

Seeing as we're all getting organized for the Friday event, I won't be able to make the Wednesday meet, but perhaps we should push the BBT meet to Friday too! http://www.asianet.ca/images/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Let's just meet Friday (I probably wouldn't have showed up on Wednesday anyhow).

CRXguy, confirm your arrival and maybe we can all hookup. I'll let Girlracer_p1 know as she's without a computer.

November 27th, 2001, 05:49 PM
Looks like I'm coming up for sure. But I don't know if I can make it to dinner, depending when I leave Calgary. If not, then I'll show up for the cruise and whatever afterwards.:)

November 27th, 2001, 10:19 PM
If you are arriving this friday, let me know and I will send you contact info to hook up with us Friday night.

November 28th, 2001, 11:23 PM
Marximus - Email me with the info.


November 29th, 2001, 01:26 AM
CRXguy, you got mail!

November 29th, 2001, 06:16 AM
