We are now trying to figure out the numbers attending for the cooks.  Please review your posts in this thread to determine if anything has changed - Bringing more folks than you thought?  Bringing fewer folks than you thought?  Haven't posted anything, but you intend to attend?  Changed the day you plan to arrive?  Said you didn't know for sure, but now you do?   Any significant changes - let me know by either posting in the thread or in a private message.  If you know of people who plan to attend but haven't yet posted their intent, please ask them to do so. 
Look forward to seeing you all soon.

I'll be there Friday morning and will depart Sunday morning. I will most likely fend for myself for meals but if that changes I'll run out and grab something or pitch in $.

After much uncertainty, looks like the Cline & Carpenter wrecking crew will indeed be there. We are bringing a newbie, I hope we have good weather for the weekend. Planning on a Friday afternoon arrival. As for the cooks, Add two to the list of hungry mouths, I always do my own cooking, I have Pre-Diabetes, so I kind of need to deal with that. 
 I hope to see Dean DeGraff There. I'll bring some old Ft. Eustis stuff.

Certainly Logan!!  Always like to get together with fellow vets. Our "Newbie" we are bringing is a vet as well. Just look for the big silver Chevy quad-cab pickup pulling a silver cargo trailer. We should be getting there Friday, late afternoon.

Scott - As was mentioned in post #1 of this thread, Jon and I will be cooking Friday night.  Since there were no other volunteers to do a whole meal, we decided to do a potluck Saturday morning and Saturday Evening.  We decided to skip the lunch meal Saturday as breakfast usually runs late and we eat way too much.

If you aren't too far away and get there early enough, then it would still be worth it, but if your not planning on coming till 10 or 11, there probably wont be a ton of people left, let many sales tables left setup

As far as I know I'm still coming in on Friday and leaving on Sunday. I didn't make reservations so I hope there is a spot left to pitch a tent when I get there. I will bring some things to sell. Have some canvas tents available if anyone is interested.

As for the light up is it just 242 line or does it include 243, 249, 247, ect.?
Your wife called she said ''BUY ALL THE GPA'S YOU WANT'' Trust me....

I'm getting all my gear ready, I have Logans B-Day Lantern packed, still haven't seen any response to the old audio/video tubes, so will leave those at home. 
  I should remind folks that might not know, there is CF available at a gas station pump at nearby Shipshewana, Ind.  last I knew it was about $4.00/Gal.  That was a couple years ago, so don't hold me to that.
