2008: May 31 - June 1, Pontiac IL

Postby Babbman » Tue, Apr 29 2008, 11:47 AM

Pontiac is coming up fast and we are all looking forward to it...

Can we get a head count on who we might be seeing there?

Dual Line, Quad, SLK fliers?

I'll be there.
It's a great satisfaction knowing that for a brief point in time you made a difference.

Believe it or not but I have family doings that weekend. I have to help in moving sister and family. :roll:
I might be able to make it on sunday depending on what time I get home. Last home game for the Chicago Rush is also that night! Of course there WILL be play-offs. :twisted: :mrgreen:

Paul, try sending a Private Message to TourPontiac. i think that is the user name for Dave and his wife; his wife is the woman who works for the recreational department in Pontiac. i'll mention something to Dave when i see him at work next week. :up:

Paul,
if you aren't able to work out anything with TourPontiac, we can fit you into my room.
I think Tom and I are sharing a room, but we'll throw in a cot. I'll take the cot and you can have the bed.
After spending the last 10 days sleeping on futons with the iQuad guys, a cot with only 2 snorers in the room will be easy!

While traveling this past weekend I also helped to promote it.
I did a newspaper interview from the Detroit Aiport, and stepped out of the iQuad line to do a live radio interview while on the beach in Wildwood.
I don't remember the name of the newspaper or radio station, but how many can there be in Pontiac?
