OK -I see that dinner ticket requests must be postmarkedby May 14th - but what is the deadline if you are ordering them online via paypal?

We can go another week or so for on-line orders without a problem.

What kind of numbers are we looking at for the dinner attendance? (John Brennan is thinking "Most likely NOT Roman numerals")

We just cruised by 150 this past week. Last year at this time, we had about 75 signed up, and ultimately sold about 150 tickets for a final head-count. You do the math. :wink: Seriously, we may have to shut down reservations this year - I need to check with the hotel, but I think capacity on the room is about 225 or so.

That is what I was thinking, that the numbers will go past capacity.

Makes it harder for ME to win the car.

You're in David. Could you send Norm a list of the names for dinner, aside from you?

In case anyone cares...

My fiancee and I LOVED the food at the dinner. We wouldn't change a thing for next year. The food was so good we kinda made pigs of ourselves. I had 2 plates in front of me at one time and she says, "Hey honey, can you run up there and get me another theigh and some potatoes?"

3 cheers for the food this year!!

The dinner was pretty sweet. The food was great and winning a set of sway bar bushings was cool (thanks for the donation, Rapido!) I'm still kinda confused as to how John Brennan has more posts than AlexD, though... and why Wilky and I were able to cheat on so few trivia questions using my shop manual. :lol:

JB has been around longer. If you look at the average daily posts Alex has more, I'm pretty sure... and I have more than either of them. :D

EDIT: I guess Alex doesn't have more posts daily.

Alex has well over 3K posts on MerkurSport. add those and his here and he's almost at 6K :roll: :!: :wink: Alex would have topped JB if MerkurSport hadn't come along--it's too well suited to his style :P

Brian, I don't think you need to worry about your caloric intake. :lol:
