  • Hopefully, given that I've been prodding Mitchazenia about his 21st for years! A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 04:36, 23 February 2012 (UTC) Sadly I don't think I can make it - babysitting an injured friend. I'll buy you a drink at the next one, Mitchazenia. A fluffernutter is a sandwich!

  • I'll know in a week or so; I should be able to get out of work that morning, which will make it a lot easier to get down there. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 03:46, 24 February 2012 (UTC) Will definitely be able to. 16:21, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Maybe... but as an "anon", were I to go, maybe? Nametags optional, right? Doc talk 12:59, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
    We don't use nametags at the dinner events. Most of us there know each other.Mitch32(There is a destiny that makes us... family.) 17:23, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
    I'll try to make it. I'm certainly in the area *(note to CU's)*, and I would be most interested in participating in and observing one of these meetings. Doc talk 06:52, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
