    Let me hear from y'all, 'cause I want to get this organized to suit the most of us, and if we get it figured out in advance we can plan for it! :tort:

    Picnic or potluck...and plenty of tortoise-related socializing, of course.

    I suppose if anyone had specimens/gear for sale, that'd be fine, as well...

    Thoughts?

    Coming from Georgetown for the weekend sounds great to me. I have friends who live in the Arlington area... Don't know if I will bring my three with me..but would love to see what the rest of the local folk have.

    Hopefully...everyone who thinks they'll attend (and might bring others w/ them), let us hear from you, so we can plan better.

    Not good ones...will have to miss it, as my Uncle had a stroke a few days ago and we're bringing him to our house to (hopefully) recuperate...at the moment his entire right side is affected, but we're hoping he'll eventually regain some movement and strength. Fortunately, he's a tough ol' bird.

    Truly sorry that this came the weekend of the get-together...do y'all want to cancel and try again in the spring or go ahead out at VETERANS PARK in Arlington, just off of Arkansas Lane?
