6:30 is a little early for me after work hours but I hope to pop in and say hi to Capt. Bob a bit later on. First class guy, should be a great presentation.

Why at the college and not out at the firehouse?

Based on an analysis of where most of the currently active members lived, NECC theoretically offers a more central meeting place.

The goal was to find a suitable location that put more members within a half hour drive radius - it wasn't an arbitrary decision. We are going to try things here for the next two club meetings and decide what to do then.

As a resident of Newburyport, feedback is welcome :)

While the scenerey at the college is slightly better than Newbury's finest retired fleet of trucks, the real reason is what Tom said...

Dave - you missed a GREAT presentation at UFT.

John - betcha five I won't see Dave at this one either...

Tom, the logistic decision makes some sense for the general membership. I hope it works out well.

Okay, Grasshopper, I've chomped on this one long enough - if you want to bust chops, that's okay, and I can certainly endure your meager attempt to aggravate me, but I just thought I'd let you know I'm paying attention. And, as for presuming you won't see me, Morin knows whether to take your bet or not.
