I am go for this plan, Paul. We all need to thank you thick for going and getting this set up with OPG.

For everyone else, yes, this means you'll be going to Old Pueblo Grill. That's good.

Many thanks, Paul, or as they say in Hawaii, "Mahalo nui loa!"

Looking forward to dinner then, at the OPG! I'll be starting my trip down in about twenty minutes.

I'm taking a small group out to CAC dark site (weather seems to be ok enough) and will miss dinner. But, hope everyone enjoys themselves. You guys are good for 14 guests, and the hostess has my number.

Sorry I never made the supper, the amazing presentation by Mr. Pettit never wrapped up till just before 6. I figured by the time I actually found OPG, everyone would be finished eating :-(.

I'm glad to have met a few of you today, and hopefully I can put a few more faces to names tomorrow.

Alright...it was a bummer missin' dinner. But, I gotta know, how was it? Great time I hope. We got started a little late going out to the dark site. Drove past at least once. But, well worth it when we got there. Oh, and the Border Patrol pulled us over in the middle of nowhere...

You guys were missed. Six folks showed, got a bit of a late start ourselves and we didn't get out till well after 7. We had a good time none the less.

mmmm... Jalapeno Hummus!

It was great meeting fellow CN'ers at the dinner, hopefully next year we can coordinate a larger gathering.

If we can find something close; within walking distance like the Congress Hotel was (and it might do, hard to tell) then folks that were in talks could get there if they ran late. We could supply maps before hand too.

Someone's going to have to be creative to figure it out downtown. Maybe we should just have a CN Forum on the schedule.

Dinner was fun last year, but the long table made it tough to socialize with you guys that were sitting at the other end of the table.

I think we had a dozen or so folks get together. If it's going to be more, we'll need one of you local guys to do some scouting for a suitable location.

I'm definitely open to a different sort of venue. The amount of noise, organization, and all made it too difficult to talk up and down the table and there were parking lot discussions afterwards.

I'm afraid we here in Arizona may be guilty of trying to put the best food in town ahead of just plain old getting a chance to talk.

Actually, we were expecting a larger crowd than the half-dozen or so of us that ultimately did show up. A lot of people went to observe as it was a new-moon night, although if I remember correctly, there was quite a bit of cloud cover, as it turned out.

Maybe with the full-moon night, more of us will join.

Would we want to do Old Pueblo Grill again? It's the home base for an Iron Chef...

Is there a possibility that we could get a separate room?

It will be great to finally meet you, David. I'll be working at one of our two club booths; either the main club description booth, or another one we set up with hands-on demos and show and tell. My wife usually works with this one, but she'll be out of town so I'll probably be on the main floor with the demos, rather than in the main display area downstairs. Hope to run into you there!

I had no idea that you'd be there. You just made my evening, Jim! I'll be looking you up shortly after the doors open. Too cool!
