As we fast approach the dates of our Gathering I want to warn everyone of two things. First, registration will close very soon on the 25th of this month, just 5 days from now. This is to allow for things to be finalized.

Additionally, I'm told that anyone who hasn't already booked tickets for the Missouri River Runner on Saturday had best hurry. There are only 2 BC seats left at last count. So if you don't already have your tickets, you had best hurry or you could be left out.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

I checked the site and see just one BC seat left, and it might be the one I surrendered after following the suggestion in Chat to grab one of the last coach seats and then cancel my BC res.

How many people are going?

Any views expressed are my own and do not represent the views of my employer, parent companies, partners, or subsidiaries.

Over 50,000 people just like you recently signed a petition to expand high speed passenger rail in the United States of America.

Wait a minute........you may be on to something here..........

But then, I must ask myself, "What is the purpose of my attending this AU meeting"? I can go to a silly OctoberFest any ole October, in virtually any state.

What I can't do any ole day, is hang out in person with the likes of Big Hoss Saxman, Dieseldorf, Alan-The-Admin, Mr. & Mrs. MrFFFF, The Wacky-Wolverine, Micah-The-Great, Team-Fez, I mean Team-Whooz, Arrrrgh!, William-The-Great-Historian-Haithcoat, EveryDayDoesMatter, OriginalAnthony, Rafi-The-Resource, and maybe even some LongTrainsRunning......

Of course legions more will be in attendance, and I look forward to rubbing shoulders with them too.
