I am truly bummed that I cannot attend this year. I was accepted to take part in a conference in Minneapolis which starts the day after. As I'm driving and will have been gone Tuesday through Friday right before the meet-up for my other conference, I need a few hours at home to do laundry and re-pack! I'll be thinking of you!

I'm sure Ingersoll has a laundromat LOL!

I heard this yesterday, too bad you aren't able to join us. Sounds fun what you are doing though and sounds like you've got a busy summer ahead! I'll message you about the IKEA cards I picked up for you :)

We have a very nice laundromat called the Island Breeze - It comes complete with palm trees on the window.

Thank you Craig for sending my postcards to me. I was counting on using my American stamps to mail the meeting postcards - I was going to send them home with you. Oh well, they are forever stamps and will be good forever.

Oh, if you'd like to ship your cards over to me with American stamps on them, I would be more than happy to drop them into the US mail stream. Of course, that would likely add a week to their journey. I hate how long mail between Ontario and Michigan takes!!

I've actually been doing something similar recently. I've been buying up UN stamps on eBay for less than half of face value, writing out 20 to 30 cards, and then shipping the cards in an envelope to the New York UN. I'm saving a fortune doing that, and our postage is nothing in comparison to yours!

Thank you so much for the invite, but unfortunately I am going to be in Virginia that week for work.
Maybe next year?

It's official - The cost of the postcards this year is .31 cents including taxes. I based it on an order of 200 cards but there shouldn't be any difference as the orders I already have are for 160 cards. Looks like a few round robins are going on.

It should be a good meeting. Participants from Chatham to Ottawa and lots of places in between!

Ok Craig, Here goes!
People started arriving a few minutes before 12:00 The restaurant wasn't ready yet but they quickly turned the tables into an open ended square. We could all see each other and we could wander in and out to exchange cards or meet and greet old friends. We did a lot of postcard signing, we traded cards, we introduced all the new members, we did a card draw, Alida gave us all a stamp. As usual, thanks to the amount of food they serve, we ate and ate and ate.

After the meet-up several of us drove into London. Kingsmills is closing so we almost wiped them out of cards at a cost of .13 each including tax. Then on to Attic Books and .25 each for a great selection of old and new cards. We had a wonderful time.

As in other years we have people not show and one or two show up unexpectedly. Well they said they were a maybe so we were glad to have them.

The card that you sent to me was waiting in the mail when I arrived home today from Minneapolis. Thank you so much! I'll see all of you next year...if not before.
