    Hi guys,

    Chris (Njaco) and I are planning to meet in April. I'll be in the States for a little more than a week, for a congress in Boston and then meet up with Chris in New Jersey the weekend after. I'll be arriving in Philladelphia in the afternoon of friday April 12th and leave on Sunday. We were thinking of inviting some of you guys living in the neighbourhood to join us, maybe on Friday night? It would be you one chance to meet the allmighty moderator Njaco and one of your European brothers on this forum, namely ... Eh... Me :lol: I promise I'll do the best I can to speak understandable English ;) (although I expect all of you to be fluent in Dutch of course)

    Our plans are not fixed, yet, apart for the Saturday evening when both Chris and I are spoken for if I understood Chris correctly. Maybe Chris can chime in on this?

    So if you're interested, please contact me or even better, Chris as he is the local guy.

    While I would love to meet up with the both of you, (and anyone else that shows up), I have taken a vow to never set foot above the Mason / Dixon line again.
    But you guys be sure to take a lot of pictures, especially of the Saturday night festivities!

    I originally told you guys (actually Chris) that I can be there that weekend, and hopefully I can.

    But here's the caveat......

    My daughter is a college gymnast and there's a chance that she can qualify for the national championships which are scheduled for that weekend. If she qualifies (which she did last year), I'll be heading to Shreveport, Louisiana for that weekend.

    If not, I'll be jamming with you guys. I should know for sure about ten days prior.

    Let you know.

    Steve

    Sounds like this could be a dangerous .. er, I mean great, get together, especially the jamming session. Lots of pics required, and, of course, good-quality sound and video of the jamming session!

    Yeah, I just remembered that Charles and I had a conversation about this a few years ago. Apparently my mother fudged the truth when I was an impressionable youth....

    Yeah, mothers do that a lot. It's always quite a shock when the outside world renders its assessment
