Re: Milwaukee

Did you go? I've been a few times, years ago. Back then they did rope off an area for kiters, but the crowd didn't like us much.

Re: This weekend - 4/16 or 17.

I'm booked this weekend, and the following 2 weekends are 180GO things. But after that maybe we can work out a club fly in Pontiac.
