Sweet. Should be above 40 frickin degrees finally.
@mongo, @Tallpuffoburley and I have 2 years worth of drunken weekend to catch up on.
I got the COVID vaccine, but I am a little leery of the international population that comes in for this.
It all comes down to mask policies at that time for me. I will not wear a mask all weekend. I can't have fun with a mask on, so I avoid doing anything not necessary that requires wearing one.

I’m very skeptical the show will actually happen but I booked a room online because on the day I called the hotel didn’t have a group rate or even heard of the show yet. I hope things will work out but even without COVID the show will be very different from our years at Pheasant Run. :geek:
wait what

didn’t this happen last year, where we were assured there’d be a show because of a contract, until pheasant run had to be the one to break the to news to attendees

and then again after folks were told no, it’s a misunderstanding, we have a contract with them?
