Man, I'd love to come but it's during the school year and even though my dad would let me go... there's no way my step-mom would. :(
I went for some of last year. It was great. Unfortunately, this year I'll be gradumalating during that time.
I agree with Atown here..that would be awesome..we need to hold it in Oregon... Washington is too cold and cali is too hot.. Oregon for teh win
Sorry I wont be able to make it this year, maybe I will next year. Unfortunately, I will be wrapping school up around that time, and possibly at Connie Maxwell Children's home doing some volunteer work.

Wish I could be there however.
WHAT THE HECK! CALI IS TOO HOT!>!>!!>!?!?!?!? YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND! =OOOOO IT"S NICE HERE! XP and u lucky bums r gettin out of school in MAY! OH MY GOSH!!! X\ I get out in June... XP Again, i second Atown's suggestion, except, GO BAY AREA! *corpfox whisperes: pssst... noone lives in the bay area*. me = XP
I so wanna come. XP I want to see all u guys. But whatever. I can't. School year and neither of my parents will pay for 2 tickets (no duh, don't fly me to TN and leave me there... LOL) and stay with me. <-- that would b funny.
Elihu just told me, and I am excited. (Now I have to ask my wife if I can come.)(hehe)
Goodness you all I wanted you to come and see me. Hmmm I must be really trusting in God for that. We still have a few details to work out but if all goes well there will be very little expense besides travel to and the food costs. BTW this is a great area we call it the biggest small town in America. So if you got lost here someone would find you eventually Smiles. Blessings,"Angel"
Perhaps smaller gatherings for those in other parts can be arranged at some point. Going to TN would be out of the question for my family. I am lucky if I can get a weekend off to go to a local women's retreat once a year ;)

I would be happy to help get a upper midwest gathering together at some point :)

Those who can go to TN have a blessed time!
Knoxville hmmmm...Would be a nice motorcycle trip...Have to think about it. Wonder what Tek would do :eek: if this old grump showed up??? :) ...

Minnesota would be a nice place for a convention...of course hitting our 1 week of summer can be iffy...
