Hello,
I'm in, Sat and Sun are best.
Thanks for running this idea up there.
PRH
I'm thinking Sunday, either the 21st or 28th?
Either works for me.
Thanks,
PRH

I'm up for it.

Is it necessary for this to be on the northside?
Just curious.
Heck, no! You can be from Australia!

Where and when? That's all I need to know.
Nah nah, I meant is it necessary for the venue to be on the northside?

Just jumping in here, no intent to step on Diane's hard work.
I think the Northside suggestions are based on a couple of northsiders starting the discussion (started by Diane) and our familiarity with the "turf" to find a venue.
Other meeting could be other places if that's something Ben K or others want to put together.
Thanks,
PRH
ah alright.
I live on the northside, but I have no problem traveling around town.
I was just curious as to why northside was specified. Perhaps I just didn't read far enough back
