    Burns Supper in Conyers

    Yes, it's time to start planning for our 5th annual Burns Supper in Conyers, GA. I am hoping that we will have the usual suspects in attendance as well as a few newbies.

    The date: January 15, 2011

    Time: About as usual, 4:00 - 5:00 or so to start the talking and drinking, and then supper around 6:00 or so.

    Place: Probably the Celtic Tavern, but I am still in negotiations to firm it up. We need more room

    Which brings up: the space may be limited. We either had to relocate to another venue or try to stick with about 30-35 tops. Last year's turnout had the place bursting at the seams, so we will have to make some "range-ments" this year.

    We always have a great time, and this year will be even better. I am hoping to have a repeat of the Address and Ladies' Response performers, but I am working on new folks for the other spots. As MC, you can contact me if you are interested.

    This is going to be another great evening. Let us hear from you.

    I will be unable to join you this year. Probably won't make my trek to Atlanta and Sarasota until February.

    Hey, no problem. We'll start drinking at 2:00 instead of 5:00.

    Bring your bride and come on. There's a really nice motel or two within crawling distance.
