Good morning, Netizens...
I have been asked for possible date(s) to hold a Gathering this month, and to be utterly honest, both Jeanie's and my schedule are so chaotic as to make planning such a thing into a major migraine headache. Having said all that, Tuesday the 23rd and Thursday the 25th both seem like likely suspects. It fits in with Jeanie's schedule, it fits in with mine, and I believe Marty might not object. 8-)
Since our first Gathering, back in the day, was held at Franklin Park, weather permitting, I think that might be a good place to invoke the Gathering of the Tribes. If everyone can agree on a date, I'll see if I can reserve a piece of real estate (such as a shelter) from the powers-that-be on whatever date we can agree on.
Don't bother digging your tuxedo out of the closet; this is strictly a come-as-you-are affair. Food may or may not be available, but no fair mixing those nasty margaritas beneath the trees and attempting to make them appear by magic. Magic, for that matter, will be strictly disallowed, although anyone old enough to remember their many contributions from a different era may feel free to invoke the spirits of Roger Erdman, John King and various others who have played such a part in events of the past.
So, let us know what will work with your schedule.
