Also see we still have no survey up. Know Lawson is too busy driving the new Tesla and seeking out charging spots these days. And yes, I know he is at the HO5G GTG tomorrow (1-1-19) so he's still depleting electrons at a rapid rate!

Just having a little fun with you Lawson! We are all busy with life. Hopefully when you return home we'll get this thread cranked back up...

Happy New Year everyone!
Sorry, we're 1/2 way home by 9 am..

Sorry I've been away for so long ... two full weeks of traveling didn't leave me with very much free time.

I'll update the attendance list and get to work on that survey.

The hotel just informed me that they are renovating the entire 8th floor, so we'll be on the 7th floor, instead.

It's looking like a pretty reasonable turnout this year even though a few regulars won't be able to make it.

Filled out the survey. While interested in Sunday breakfast will only do it if it starts at 9am as 10am is too late for me given there are no other plans listed for that day.

June is not good for doing this event on an annual basis - have too many other things going on during summer. Really would like consideration given to keeping this a Winterfest tradition by attending the annual Chicago Auto Show which is held every February. There also is plenty to see and do in Chicago - much more so than Detroit!

Since there was no real response regarding my question about having Sunday breakfast at 9am instead of 10am (I do thank the two of you who did reply but will not be around on Sunday!) I expect this can be determined at the Saturday dinner.

Hard to believe there is just over a week to go for this GTG!

I'm fine with breakfast at 9:00 AM on Sunday. It'll be easier to get a table, too, as Sundays are very busy at The Bomber.

I'm starting to tally survey responses. So far only 7 out of 17 people have responded (indicated by a ✓ next to your name). Please take a moment to fill out the attendance form.

Thanks!

Sorry you won't be able to make it, Tom. Time to get your Maryland green card.

The weather is looking interesting for the weekend. Folks traveling to Detroit from the east coast on Friday should miss the snow. Sunday will have some snow on the way back home, but Monday is clear and very cold. We're heading back home on Monday because we're visiting an ailing grandmother in Indiana on Sunday.
