Perfect. I have a v-ball game from 7:00 to 8:00 at Windy City and then I'm b-lining it for Sheffields. See you there a little after 8. I'll bring a few flicks.

Hey Rorke,

I won't make it out tonight....my baby sitter bailed out on me and my wife will be in her Wed. dance class. I'm shit out of luck.

I will try to pass by early to drop off some magazines that everyone can take.



Cheers,
Gerard

Thanks for coming everybody. Last night was a good time. Well, I don't know if it was a good time for those nerds trying to get their taxes done directly under the screen in the beginning.
Sheffield's worked out really well.
Infancy got huge thumbs up from everybody. Thanks to Bolt for letting us premier his excellent movie. Also, thanks to Mark from LA for his primo short film.
It was great putting faces with names, and I look forward to the swap!

Good times last night. I had to sleep in a bit and didn't make it to work until 9:30, but oh well. I wondered what those guys were doing sitting in front of the screen at the beginning...not the place I would have chosen for that activity. Kudos to the ladies that came out...all two of them. I know there are more women kiters in Chi-town than that. We should do this again sometime in the fall on a Friday or Saturday night. Hope to see you all again at the swap meet...if not on the water before then.

Andy,

Mark Brown from Chicago will be down there for quite a bit of April. He was trying to get some of us down there with him. I heard from Steve (Mackite) that there is a big midwest crew heading down there soon. Sounds like a ton of fun. Make sure you make frequent posts on the Mackite forum to make us all jealous. Great job on the DVD. You really showed what the midwest riders can do. I'll be ordering a copy soon.
