I'll be driving up on Friday and staying one night at the Pottsville Ramada. For those doing the same how about meeting in the hotel lobby at 5:00 PM Friday evening? Maybe dinner together? PM me if you are interested. I'll meet all of you in the Ramada parking lot Saturday morning. I'm looking forward to it.

Looks like I'll be coordinating things (more like un-coordinating) on Saturday morning while JC is taking those who wish to get coal to the breakers...I'll be the guy sleeping in the black E-250.

Update on the meet & greet There has been a change in plans We will not be Taking a blaschak breaker tour they are
doing upgrades & repairs on the breaker No can do this time around so it looks like getting coal in the morning for members
that want to and then a Yuengling tour for the members that want to go on it I was thinking while the members that are going onto the Yuengling tour I would take the others that do not want to go the tour To Keystoker for a tour both tour will last a hr then after keystoker we would come back to the parking lot and pick up the members that where on the Yuengling
tour then go up to Centralia mine fire then over to the Pioneer tunnel Mine tour then from there we would go over to
the # 9 Mine tour after that we would have dinner and a business meeting somewhere up in Coaldale or Lansford or back
down to Pottsville Somewhere I will have to call Keystoker and see what time they are open till on Saturday and if they
can do a tour I will know by Friday
