GTG at the Man Cave Oct 26-28, 2018

OK so I tried this about two years ago and it crashed and burned. May and October seem to be the best weather time of year around here.

Man cave is now complete and Samson and Delilah are waiting.

So who might be available and when.

Lets start by focusing on May for now and see how that works out.

May and October looks good for me.
The one you had in August was the "dog days of summer" - hot and humid.

That was the hockey GTG. I guess no one expected the hockey GTG to be hosted down south.

I finish my work week Friday May 18 in the morning. I'm guessing Stef and I can make it most of the way Friday and end up at your ManCave by noon on the Saturday May 19.

October.... I have 26, 27 and 28 available (Fri, Sat, Sun).

John,
Thanks for hosting a GTG.
I am not able to fully commit yet for May. Too many uncertainties.
October I am wide open but for the weekend of the 6th - Wedding anniversary.

Thanks

Joerg

That May weekend I'll be on the annual Tesla pilgrimage to Custer, SD. October looks good.

OK....works for me.

October 6th, unfortunately, falls on Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. The one annual event that I can get the MOST of my family together in one place.
