    Me and Kevin S are planning on coming to the May 21 battle if you guys can make it a Fri/Sat/Sun event like the last time us easterners came to visit.

    Can't speak for anyone else but I do believe others were planning on making the drive too.

    May 21 sounds good for me too. the Hiawatha's campgrounds will be open so I'll have a place to stop overnight.

    FYI, the Ionia state park campground is the best place to go. I have it scouted out and the good sites picked. Michigan has a weird reservation system so DM me if ya need a hand.

    Why does it feel like in watching the pirated version of this video? You know how to save a video file right? Also the Missouri won, and it’s the ring of death

    It was my video
    It was too big a file to put on U-Tube
    I guess I am entitled to my opinion
    I hope you were joking about piratedo_O

    Hey Kas, is the NATS information posted yet (IE do we say anything for reservations for reduced rate or blocks of rooms)?

    GLAS recently had a build.
    We started with the Pledge of Allegiance.
    Then we remembered that two captains will not repeat their
    NATS at Saranac R.I.P.
