I need to let you know that again there has been a change in the time for the meet and greet. Due to some monkey wrenches tossed my way in my family i need to bump up the meeting time to 6.30 pm that same night December 26th same place Starbucks in Centerville. I had some plans alter beyond my control today and got preempted on saturday. So the new time is at 6.30. PM please ket me know asap if that is good. It was either that or postpone again, and that is something i don't care to do. Merry Christmas all.

Thank you Kooky for the kind words and i am sure the emergency was unexpected. I do want to let you all know for the record that this meet did have three cars total which was way down from last year, but i realize that even though the date was well planned out, mother nature threw out a record snowfall that made travel impossible, so the timing was not too great, and even though the meet was postponed until this weekend i was ok with the small group. What i did not expect was to find that the park was closed due to the place being flooded out making the trip though the lights an impossibility for that night.
I do want to take the time to publicly apologize for the abrupt change of time for meeting. I was to get together with my sisters on christmas eve, but my mother had not felt too well to go there, so the date was changed to tonight, making 4.30 impossible to meet up. I could not see going to this thing the day after new years and i could not see postponing the thing again. I am never the type of person who does things on a whim, but this was a situation i had come up very suddenly. I do prefer to plan things out as far as possible, and the next time i do propose a meet, that will still be the case.
I am thinking seriously of a good DC cruise for the spring, perhaps from a point in Virginia to the National Auberitum on New York Avenue N.E. I would need to plan the route carefully as to hopefully get some of the D.C guys to join in some point. March/April time frame would be ideal, I am open to any ideas on this matter. Happy New Year to all of you, and may the year have a far better ring to it if you know what i mean.

try again?

Well if the lights are still on til January 10, that gives us two more Saturdays, 1/2/10 and 1/9/10.
Should we try again? I could do either of those dates.

Ok now that the idea is out there, lets do this meet on January 2nd same time 4.30, Centerville Starbucks no monkey wrenches this time, and the weather is supposed to be good for that saturday. If any of you all want to join in let me know. Good way to start off the new year.
It should be a great time.

Hi Guys & Gals,

Thought we'd drop a line.

We couldn't make the trip on the 26th because of other plans and we will be out of town on the 2nd of January.

Hope everyone that makes the trip has a great time.

Later.
