    Its that time again. With less than 3 months left till the meet I would like to get a growing list of who is planning on being there and who would like to but not yet sure. Please check the first post to see if your name is on there or let us know in the thread or on Facebook. I would like to get an idea of how many people would like to come so I know about how much food we will be needing. Even if your not 100% let us know so we can incorporate it into our estimates. Thanks
