A huge thanks to JC for planning things out and leading us around...I have been in those shoes trying to round everyone up and keep them moving...it can be a challenge If we DO have a mid winter meeting then I think we need to make a return visit to Phase II. They owe the Mayor a properly made steak but, more importantly, I need another round of those french fries For those that were unable to stick around for dinner you need to make sure to be there next time....you would not believe the amount they bring unless you see it with your own eyes....and they were GOOD too. I'm sure if that waitress is still there we will get exceptional service after that tip Big thankyous go out to Rich/Scott for driving me around like I was Miss Daisy...I probably owe you at least $10 in gas money. Hope to see you all again in the near future. Next time around it will be the beer tour and the #9...that's if we ever get out of the brewery

You could see alot of the process of constructing boilers and the coding process. A day or two notice is needed, and I believe you could visit during the work week, if you happen to be in the area.

If anybody that saw hard coal friday night has any questions just shoot and I'll answer them as best I could. That version that they showed is the newest one yet and is the one that they hope to have available for purchase sooner or later. Afterwords I ment GAW at a fine establishment and tossed a few (well more than a few ) back. I did make it to work saturday on time and made it through the day, although it was a bit rough early in the morning when I got word the dragline was out of power and we would be outside the better part of the day fixing that in the lovely rainy weather !

Guy's thanks again.
