i would like to attend as well, but after school lets out would work best for me. so anytime after april (graduation in may, but that is just one day!!). i would rather wait for nicer weather for sure. anywhere in the state works for me. if we can get members interested from surrounding states (IL, MN, etc) perhaps we can drift to one side of the state or the other. count me in. also, contact DrD5 (first gen). dan is in des moines, last i knew and has a very nice 1g. i am sure he would like to get in on the fun!!
