How about a Skype video broadcast for those of us who can't make it?

Hey, not a bad idea!  We'll think about it.  Being there in person will be much more fun.

Ooh!  Mini concert on the battlefield in the early afternoon on Sunday.  I'm going to to a rendition of "My Mini and Me."

Here is the file that contains the information above AND a registration form.  Currently, we have about a dozen registered participants.  I hope to see you there!
