Oh, sure, questions from the guy who keeps cutting my lead time every 24 hours.
We've set a tentative schedule for the plant tours, and are confirming it with the plant managers. They'll be on Tuesday and Wednesday, with Thursday as a standby date if needed.
There will be about two dozen seminars, and I've pretty much finished scheduling those. They'll be primarily on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (EVERYBODY wants Monday), and a few will be repeated to work around tours.
If the plant tour that you want conflicts with an optional tour, we'll try to get you set up with a separate tour, and we'll do the same if there's a plant you were hoping to visit that isn't on the list. (Georgetown / FR3 / Cardinal, for example, is a relatively small building that just can't accommodate a crowd visiting, as much as I'd like to send a group there.)
There will be about 40 vendors at the rally, and about 45 units in the RV display, including a pontoon boat and a couple of cargo trailers. (Who knew?) If you ask nicely, we'll even sell you one. Or more.
I'm just beginning to work on the parking list. I've been waiting for the bribes to start pouring in, but so far it's not looking too good. OC's offer for burying turbs under, in, or on some stuff is about the best I've gotten so far.
Other than that, and the four western tours, and the two to Charleston, and the locally organized ones in OR, TX, OH, and FL, and the stuff we're working on for 2014, it's fairly quiet around here.
Oh, and Pete's Dinner? I don't know nuthin' about nuthin'.
