Moosetrot, is the District 5 meet a bigger event than the District 9 meet?

Theirs is earlier than ours. Paul usually posts things like this at the top about 2 weeks before the event. While D9 is perceived to be "special" now, D5 will be "special" soon enough. Anything D5 and D9 does is truly "special", eh, Patrice?

You got that right, Moosey!

For the rest of you who don't know, D5 and D9 are in cahoots on these things. What you need to do, is come to our D9 rendezvous on June 3rd, and then after you recover and rest up from ours, you will be ready to go to the D5 rendezvous on June 24th! What a way to plan your month of June!!!

Nittany, we have our rendezvous in 2 weeks, so Paul gave us "the glue" now. Moosey will get the glue for D5 when their rendezvous is 2 weeks away. In the meantime, his buddies will keep him at the top! That includes me! grin

Can we get raffle tickets in advance from someplace in case you can't make it? Wait, maybe I should ask if we need to be present to win first?

There is a Route 35 that goes by my place if I got on that sucker and went West would that eventually get me to your convention.

There's a state Hwy. 35 that comes very close. I have no clue if it's the same highway or not!

Now if it were an interstate highway we might have a connection.
