I thought it might be a good time to open up a discussion about the NRA show this year.

Who's planning on attending?

Perhaps we should consider arranging a FOHBOH.com get together.

Thought I'd throw the idea out here and see what sticks to the wall.

Dave, thanks for the nice comments. I would love to have a meet and greet athe Reagle Beagle for people coming to town. The 19th seems like the most logical day. We can call it an informal happy hour just to shake hands and put names and faces. If you plan on attending, let me know so I can reserve space for the group.
Bill, thanks for volunteering the Reagle Beagle as a venue for the FohBoh Meet Up (or Drink Up, as we like to call it internally)... We checked it out online, and the place looks awesome. I grew up in the seventies, so I'll feel right at home. The 19th sounds good to me, we'll be in touch!
Great idea - count me in
What kind of sponsored parties are at the NRA show? breakfast? lunches? happy hours? night time?

are they at McCormick or in the surrounding areas?
