Sounds like a plan to me. I like the idea of the evening buffet. I would require a motel in the area as I have no intention of eating and imbibing and driving.
I sent a email to Iwannago. I am not sure of that attendance as the responsibilities of that job has increased to a huge amount.
It might be fun to have a little get together before doing dinner where we could have a little before dinner fun, a get together, toast of the group before we settle down to lotsa good "Q"
