IOF - Sorry to hear of your pain.

Our household has been watching every penny due to various income reductions also. Not an uncommon problem in this area.

I have too many graduations to attend this year to make the meet and greet. However, there is a chance I may be taking a day trip down to NEPA in 2 or 3 weeks to check out coal before I make a major purchase. (major to me anyhow). I may need to find a place to eat lunch.....

These are trying times for all of us, and since team 6 is state-side, perhaps they would like a few more missions right here at home. Always good to keep the 'cutting edge' sharp!!.

Perhaps we will have an official photographer because we sure seem to miss the 'special moments' when we all get together to chat and unwind. Too bad we can't have a webcast of the meetings and faces of members.
Freetown Fred tells me many of the forum Members are already displayed at the local USPS. I didn't see mine today, but perhaps it was under a few others....

The degree days are less, so if nothing else, that is a positive statement we can universally enjoy.

Matt, I'll PM you and should find you Monday some place near Pottsville. Looks like the breeze is winning in the battle of the 'Black Flies', man, they are thick and robust little chewing bast..ds!! Anyone want a truckload of the pests?

Things are falling apart in the IOF household and as much as we try to dig ourselves out the walls continue to fall in on us.


I hate when that happens. Hope things improve for you.

I won't be attending, either, I have a family obligation that day that I was unsure about, it was just confirmed. Hope everybody has a good time!

The bar won't be open after we leave and to park just follow the alley next to the brass tap. There is a parking lot at the end of the alley. Parking isn't a problem on saturdays. I hate to see anyone miss part of the day. If you are running late or get lost please call my cell so we can meet up. 570-640-9156. Its looking like sat will be in the mid 70's w/ a chance of showers late in the day.

Unfortunately something has come up that will prevent me from attending the "Meet'n Greet". I sure hope it isn't the last one and I get another chance down the road. I'm sure everyone will have a blast.
