Well, after giving this some time, it is looking like the PNWG IV just isn't going to be. There just does not seem to be the interest that there was. Only two locals and Barry have said they can make it, unlike the 50 from 2 years ago. At this rate, given everything else, I suggest that it is a wash this year. I guess good things can't last forever. Another time. Tom and Bob, thanks for the offers of help. Maybe we can just meet up when Barry is in town. Sorry Barry. Barry, where are you coming into again?

I'll be in Portland from the 20 to the 29.Will be at the Marriott courtyard the 20 to 24 and then at my daughter's house.
John and Penny, It was very kind, thoughtful, and generous for you to have even considered hosting the party with all that you have on your plates. Maybe next year will be better for folks to attend. I'm still looking forward to my first PNWG and know that when it happens, it will be worth th= e wait. Thank you very much. -- Brent My coffee is better than it tastes
<Snip> Or, could it be the date not being good for many of us? Would another date work better? Plus, I'm sure I was not the only one who worried that we might be overstressing both you and Penny by adding yet one more activity to your already busy schedule especially that weekend.
