Re: Thursday September 14 - Hingham

Hi all,

There's a chance I may get sucked into covering a 3:30 meeting, for my boss who is travelling this week. I am hoping for it to be rescheduled and for me to be in Hingham on schedule.......I'll know more this afternoon.

Enjoy the great afternoon, either way!

Re: Newport Sept 17 2017

Thanks Ken,

Which parking area within the park are we meeting at? Did I miss the routes for the day somewhere? You can feel free to email if that would be easier.

Have a good evening

Good Morning Ken,

Please count me in. I haven't done this trip with the group, and I'm looking forward to it. I'll have to get the scoop on the cook out so I can help with the festivities.
