19th, iffy. 20th, I might be able to swing that.

And if she is really serious about allowing this nonsense at 8+ months pregnant, I would like to nominate Mrs. FroBozz for some sort of sainthood.

Does your whole group of friends up there call gleek by his online name instead of his real name, FroBozz? I mean, my wife never refers to Starfalcon as Starfalcon or HowardDrake as Howard. She calls Action Jim Jim, but that's because his real name is...Jim.

(Monty Python) there are those that would call me......Jim(/Monty Python)

Try me. :lol:

And there'd better not be too many I haven't tried, because I can't make it that weekend. I'll be in Vegas the 17th thru the 19th (coming back Sunday morning) for the annual <a href="http://www.beertown.org/events/hbc/index.html">National Homebrewers Conference</a>.

After further discussion with the better half, June 20th wont be good for us. The 19th is no good for Gleek. The 19th would be good for me.

Looking now like June 26/27th now....

How about moving this to the 13th? Since it seems half the people won't be around on the 20th? Just a thought.

Dude you are so negative. I think you need your morning coffee or something.

What do you expect when you announce this plan without asking me about it first? The only way to avoid this would have been to decide what the best time would be between us two, and THEN announce the official date. But now we are trying to figure it out by committee instead.

SO is June 13th good for you or not Gleek?

June is an absolute disaster for me. Don't go rescheduling it on my account, the chances I'd be able to make it are slim to none whichever weekend it is.

I'd be in for June 13th, but not June 20th.

But, like JBI says, don't just go rescheduline everything for one or two people. I'm sure there'll be other events...
Good bye everyone.

The wife has spoken:

OK……Since you will never get everyone together at once no matter how far in advance you plan, these are the dates that you can have the party at our house. If Gleek doesn’t like it, he can have it somewhere else as we have been put on the spot as it is.

June 6th
June 12th
June 19th
June 26th
June 27th

If you don’t agree with any of these, then the party will have to be somewhere else.


So those are the dates, if this shindig is going to be at my house.

Yuck, I just remembered that I play softball on Sundays. That would probably eliminate me from Sunday contention.

Hey, are kids invited at this thing? If I could bring the wife and/or kid, that would probably open up several of the Saturdays.

What do the rest of you guys think?
Either of the two dates is fine with me.

Too bad the dates are no good for JBI or Idchaffe.

Either works for me. The joys of my life :-? I am hoping to hitch on the coattails of someone from the area for a ride :)
