Groovy!!!  I've got the list going based on the folks who posted, and I'll 
get to work on particulars, and will post soon.  I shall answer everyone's 
questions too.  Wow, 1st trip stateside for Chris and Karin--we'll have to 
make sure it's special--I'll work on it.  :-)  Back in a flash with the what 
knots.  Cheers, Christine

>> Hi Everyone:

>> 2) In a week or so, I'll post a list of hotels/motels folks might

>> 3) Awhile back I suggested the following:  Folks fly in Thurs or

>> attend exhibit opening reception Fri night; Photowalk all day Sat with
>> pizza
>> party/dinner Sat night;  How does this sound to folks?  The bigger

>> If you want to offer suggestions please do.  I'm going to do some

>> Anyway that's a start.  I hope it helps.
