It is now M - 13 days, and counting. Only person I have heard from who is not coming is Bob (Citation4444). Also, I have not heard from Mark Connors, so I assume he is not coming. Still, about 40 attendees expected. Not a bad crowd.

Don Wallace (BBQ God, aka Wallace1234, aka Wallace123456)

Menu details to probably be posted by BBQ God sometime this week.
MP is coming over Friday, for what we both hope is the final calibration session (geometry and grayscale).
The lovely & talented Cheryl and I just went to a really classy wedding and reception last night, at a 200+ year old plantation not 5 mintues from the Home Theater. (The Home Theater is the Reference Point for the entire universe.) There most definately will be a rehersal dinner at a local classy country restaurant. We have many very good ones to pick from. American, English, French, Seafood, Italian, German, etc available within 20 minutes of the Home Theater. Anyone having arrived on Friday is welcome to participate. We must reherse to kick into Meet Mode!!!
Also, for all of you bringing Lovely & Talented wives/GFs who may like a side diversion, my Lovely & Talented wife runs the tasting room at a local winery, not 3 minutes from the Home Theater. Like at professional conferences, we could set up a "2009 East Coast Blend Meet Swedenberg Winery Tasting" spouses event should there be sufficient interest. Spouses could shuttle over to the winery, and sample the 6 or so estate wines offered. Why they could even have a picnic lunch, outside, overlooking the 250+ year old working farm, a gorgeous view unto itself.
