Understood, you know we'll keep an opening for you so if you can make it you've got a spot.
I'm really looking forward in helping to make this a great convention as well.
We'll talk soon.

I actually am getting moved to a different shift so I'm not sure how much of your training I'm going to be able to attend. However I was right in the middle of rallying my E-Board to go down on the 24th for Jonny Mac"s lecture when i got moved so hopefully they'll still go down. Hope all is well and I'm looking forward to working on the Convention with ya.

Dana,sorry you couldnt make it this year. It was a hell of a Convention, glad it is over though, just alot of worrying about the details. I'll definately be in Maine next summer. Its been about 3 years since I was in York, used to spend my summers in Maine as a Kid. Plus I have to bring a few of the Brothers East and do a little tour of Boston and Possibly NYC. Take Care of yourself Brother, Till next years Convention...Sven

I got your email. Don't count me out just yet. I looked into flights and they aren't TOO bad. I could fly in to Manchestah and make Sippy da Cup drive me around. That way I could "visit" his wife... Give me a call...
