I was really pleased to see Traey's announcement of the Workshop in Bowling Green. Should be great. The past events I've attended have been good but the GM links at this venue makeit more interesting. Looking forward to it.

Now, what is the correct date for the workshop? One post says March 3 &4, another says 10 & 11. I took vacation based on the 10th and 11th, but before I make my reservations, I want to be sure of the dates.

Made our room reservation yesterday morning, good price! Any word yet on the itinerary for the weekend? I can't get there until about 10 A. M. Friday, so I hope we won't be late for the plant tour. I've. Been wanting to your tour the Corvette plant and visit the museum for a while, really looking forward to it!
