All right, lets hear from those who would be interested in setting up a Gathering later this year in the West. I propose Albuquerque as being reasonably central to those living in the region, it has good accomodations at reasonable prices and is easily accessible by air. Speak.

Let's see first who's interested. Who knows, it may just be me and thee, in which case come on down anytime. Corazon has a couple of guestrooms available most anytime. Pool should be open after the middle of April, maybe sooner. Being retired and living in Albuquerque makes almost anytime acceptable to me. Sometime April through August seems reasonable.

Craven,

I'm happy and pleased you've found your dream job. Disappointed that the nation will be deprived of your talents.

So far after just a few hours on the boards, there seem to be four folks interested: Roger, Dyslexia, Joandorel and myself. I imagine that over the next week or so that number will grow. Pifka on the North Coast is probably too far away, but who knows. We aren't yet sure that even this gathering will occur and already Craven has made it an annual affair.

I can taste that Tex-Mex food now.

Cut off my legs and call me shorty.

I'd love to go to Albuquerque, and could combine the trip there with a business trip and a side trip to visit some relatives. I'd love to meet everyone!!

I'm thinking sometime in April. The pool will be open then, and the weather should be wonderful.

Since most of you will have to come a long way, hotel rooms will be necessary. Once we get some idea of how many rooms will be required, I'll see if we can arrange a group rate. Corazon has two guest rooms, if anyone's budget just cannot cover a hotel. There are a number of excellent restaurants here, and when the time comes I'll make reservations.

Corazon has played host to events in the past with upwards of fifty guests, so no outside meeting place will probably be necessary. We have a BBQ, outdoor fires, a full bar, a large formal Great Room, and room to roam. Because we are on a small government pension, I cannot supply the drinks, nor the meals. What we can offer is a place where interesting conversation can take place in a relaxed atmosphere. There are many local attractions within a few hours of Albuquerque. I think there will be something for everyone to enjoy as a group, or on their own.

It looks like the total may be up to around ten.
