I don't think there is a firm destination yet. Alot of people said they're in but right now we're all just wondering around Rt. 81. :lol:

Ok Members that want to come to the meet / greet nerd fest or whatever we are calling it these days :lol:
PM me so I can get a head count and cell Numbers so I know who is coming I think Pottsville PA is the best Place to meet
at the Ramoda Inn Parking lot on Route 61 once everone gets there we will go on the Yuengling beer tour then to
Centralia Pa to see the mine fire then over to the Pioneer tunnel mine tour then shoot over to the # 9 Mine tour
and we can use the Pavilion there for a picnic or go to any off the local Restaurant for dinner & the business meeting
that will take the day up If there is anyone that wants to get coal you would need to be at the Ramoda inn Parking lot
early like 6:30 am we would leave at 7 am to go to the breaker to get coal then come back to the Parking lot to meet
everyone else then go to Yuengling and so on PM me and let me know if you are coming The members that are not going to get coal can be at the Parking lot for 10AM the tour starts at 11am I am working on getting a coal breaker tour for us
I will have to see if they could do one for us that morning it will be blaschak breaker

So are we talking about Friday or Saturday? The poll at the beginning says the 24th. (Friday) I'm thinking I might just come up Friday and get a room at the Ramada. Then I'm ready to roll if I decide to get any coal in the a.m. I might want to get a ton of nut for the Jotuls.

Greg, I know you said you can't make it but when you fly over at 30,000 ft. just beep the horn or wiggle the wings so we know its you. :lol:
