Really?! So you're going to torture me with your pristine Dynascope! They didn't look that good when they were new!
Happy New Year Gerald,
Rob

I wish you'd do that at PATS out here as well! I'll bring one or two of mine, if you do!

I'll consider that. However, in all previous pats years, I've had work commitments around that time. I'll try to verify well in advance this year.

Just a thought.

I thought last year was awesome.

I'm ready to do it again and have a few different classics I could bring this year.

I would consider it now that I'm retired. Never could get away at that time before, tho I've read about it for years in S&T. Sounds like fun? There's a classics section there?

Thank you Preston, I am going to seriously consider it. That would be a nice time to take a little trip. I think it would be a lot of fun.

I'm intending on making it this year. Every year I say I'm going and then work gets in the way. This year I've got it on the calendar at work. I grew up 10 miles away and I'm going to do a little visit with the parents at the same time. I could bring one of my Criterions along if they were needed.
