There are a number of ramadas. Ours is the Stillman ramada. (Note: I did not reserve the ramada, so we may have to move if someone else does. Reservations are $150, but the girl in the office said she doesn't expect anyone to reserve it next weekend.)

Hey, If I leave at 0300, I can be there by 0900! Hmmm.... I might be able to make it! Are there any National Parks or those beautiful AZ senic areas around there?

Hmmmm, my bad. I thought the meetup was July 31st...why I thought that I don't know. At any rate, I can't make the 30th. My boss seems to think that I need to work 18 days in a row and that's one of them.

Y'all have fun and I will catch you next time.

Greg Phoenix looks like ... LA only we have desert instead of ocean. If you like desert, Phx is the place! By the way, it is scheduled to be 108 next Saturday.

Mary - Bummer. 18 days in a row! Wow - that is inhuman. If your boss can be swayed, let me know... I know some people. ;) It looks like there are quite a few of us in Arizona, and I think the possibility of a repeat occasion are highly likely.

You guys have lots of fun and take lots of pictures! Our group that got together a couple weeks ago in Huntsville, Alabama really had a nice time...hope you guys are as fortunate as we were. Maybe you'll luck out and the weather will not be quite as hot as it looks to be. Regardless, we expect to see lots of pictures posted afterwards!!!

Jack - Same here!

Leigh - I'm hoping we get some pix. As you can see, the park is a very pretty place. What I didn't show was the many trains and cars on display there.

Thanks Gordon - I'm sure we will. I hope it doesn't rain tonight, so it really will be dry. Like a convection oven is dry!

Jack If Becky and the kids come along, I'll be the old guy hanging with a beautiful brunette and two little brown kids. Otherwise, I'll just be the sweaty old guy in the designated location.

Kim and Mike: Be There, K?

I have Kim, Jack, Mike and Tim on the attend list, while Mary, Ron and John from out of town have excused absences. Greg will be there if he starts driving early enough this morning. :)

Haven't heard from Steve B, Brsch, Carl S, Manzico, Larly or Saturnine, but you-all are certainly welcome to just show up!

I will bring a cooler with a sixer of diet pop and water (and maybe other stuff) - there is food and ICE CREAM available at the park. The ice cream is from an old fashioned icr cream parlor that is rail road decorated and is actually reasonably priced ($1.50 single scoop cones.)

A beer licence is also available for $5, but it's pretty early in the AM, so ... maybe.

Am I forgetting anything?

Question for all: Is this announcement gaudy enough?
