Naturally. I'm talking with some of the Chicago and Wisconsin folks about coming.

Also: SPANO will be in late June, and has traditionally been the major MN war of the year. If you can only come to one war, that would probably be the better choice.

Well depending on the exact date of SPANO I will see about going but for the end of June I have No More Room In Hell to go to/organize

As with last year's spano, I'm gonna try to bring 5-7 more people. However, some of them might not be available. You can probably count on at least three more attendees. I'll confirm this later. Can't wait!

Unfortunately I'm out for a bachelor party the 23rd. My warrior spirit will be attending even though my body will be trapped underneath a bunch of strippers!

Weather report is 72 with about a 20% chance of rain in the afternoon. Since the day will be nice, we may have a lot of pedestrians in the park. If it's crowded we can move over to the south side of the park, which is almost always deserted.

A reminder to everyone to get your blasters fixed up for Saturday. I'll be arriving at about 9:30 or so to set up.
