Well that is not bad at all - about the same for me, I think, yours maybe even shorter.

For a group this size we might consider the dorky concept of the chain or lanyard ID cards around our necks, like you use at some large companies, with the AA logo on it.

Okay - forget I said that! I'm the one at the seminars who refuses to wear the "HELLO, My Name Is ___________" stickers they want you to put on your shirt.

When we met in NY Andy (QTOFFER) printed out a 8.5x11 AA logo and held it up, and I think it was a great idea, but this group is going to be bigger. The Aquarium may have something they provide for large groups like this.

ok, here's from their website:

Quote:
Your group of 15 or more must reserve in advance to receive discounts and express entry into the building.
Group Rates
Save money when you come as a group:

Adults: $16.00
Seniors (ages 60 and up): $13.25
Students (ages 12 to 18): $10.75
Children (ages 3 to 11): $8.75
Group rates are subject to change without prior notice. Reservations are based on ticket availability, which is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. A $75 deposit (at minimum) is due three weeks in advance.

For reservations or additional information:

reserve@aqua.org

or fax: 410-986-2334.
Reservationists are available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
So, we have to call in advance - we should also write down whatever questions we have to ask them.

Unfortunately, due to injuries suffered during the "Great Ink Well" war of 1973, my doctors have advised that I cannot indulge in "Holding up 24x16 placards".

Therefore, though honored...I respectfully...due to medical reasons (which can be verified) decline.

Okay, but we'll need a note from your doctor. Wait a minute, in 1973 you were but a grade-schooler! I'm not buyin' it

I have your blue jacket to thank for my ability to rejoin the group when we were at the Museum of Natural History in Feb, so maybe you could wear an AA hat or something?

Well, at least I was able to be a beacon in the darkness, a shining tower amongst the pillars, a ...tall guy with a blue jacket on. Ok, the hat is a good idea. And for the record, there was a ink war that year.

A few of our MD residents I belive are taking the lead on this gathering. Im sure they will come up with a good place/method of meeting and also make all the offical arrangements.

Since they want a deposit we should all start thinking about sending our funds to whom ever is going to manage the cash.
