I wanted to mention Im willing to host a 2014 gathering on my tiny property.
I have a small home but can put up 2 couples as I have 2 spare bedrooms or one couple with children.
I know my location is difficult for many here who are active members
Id like to meet some old friends and meet some new ones.
there is plenty of lodging within a few miles of me, and it is long island, beaches, parks, restaurants, etc....so theres plenty else to do if anyone makes a few days trip of it.(im 40 minutes by train to manhattan)
larry knows how small my home is, but I can host a party of 30 or 35 in my yard.
its just a tough location to travel to during summer months since most active members here are from way left of me..
I will if needed too, pick anyone up at ny airports and bring them to their lodgings.
I do not require any help physically or financially arranging this gathering.
for the record, if people want to bring their young children, I will make sure there is children friendly food for them, and if I have too, have a mothers helper here to give their parents a break for a few hours. (there are parks nearby)
I want to make it convenient for anyoneto attend, not just old people like me.
Im just bringing it up again this year for this summer.
Im hoping we can keep the tradition going year to year.
that's it, back to regular programming.sorry for the interruption.
