I just wanted to bump this topic to the top since May 23rd is just 2 days away.

It was great last year, and I'll be going again this year.      :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

I'll be driving up this evening some time. But I don't see any specific meeting time/place earlier in the day than the 6pm cocktails and dinner.

I was assuming that we'd meet as we did last year, but now that I'm reading the details, I'm not so sure. Will there be a meeting at the park earlier in the day as we did last year?
