Oh, but one more assignment for Kenny.

Kenny, if they are giving away samples of those cute little A's could you bring me back one? Please? You would be my friend for life!

Sorry John but all the free samples are AAs.
Still friends?
Besides you alredy have a "Killer B".

BTW, I'm probably gonna take a week off and "do" Boston and vicinity’ I’ve never been.
I'll start a thread in the coffee room for hotel, restaurant, and must-see suggestions.

Opps, sorry Frank, off topic.
"Smack!" "Whip" "Punch" “Slap”
Ouch.

Realplayer & Bernard,

I plan on driving up to Haverill from Western Connecticut. The Brewster North Station on Metro North is about 10 minutes from me. I could pick you up and we could leave from there. Let me know. My email is Chris(dot)Aher(at)mci(dot)com (replace the at & dot)

Sunday: NY to Haverhill (tentatively 5/10?):
NYP to BBB 7:05am - 11:05am
BBB to BNS 11:29am - 11:37am
BNS to Haverhill 12:00pm - 12:53pm
Without Boston's on again, off again, North-South rail link, you can see why getting to Haverhill is such a pain from anyplace south.

On my train home the other night I saw a sign on the platform saying Peter Pann bus lines is doing the NYC / Boston route for as little as $25.

I may also be able to help shuttle Boston-Haverhill. The tour might very well start in the morning. PM me, if interested.

I have a very strong interest. But at this time can only say it's about 50/50 that I will be able to make it.

Please count me in.

(I may bring a friend if we don't fill up all 25 spots by the week-end before the tour.)

For those travelling from NYC, there are a few Chinatown express bus lines going between NYC-Chinatown and Boston-Chinatown, $10 one way, hourly departure, no stop in between:

Wow sounds like it'll be a great trip!! I'll talk to my dad about it. I'm assuming I have school that Monday, but as a Mason & Hamlin owner in MA theres no way I can miss this... I'll post whether or not I'll be making it soon.

Thanks Frank! I'll make sure the memory card is empty and the battery full!

I am finding that my minivan is filling up, I have become a party of 5 or 6!

Can I bring or provide anything we might need? Nametags perhaps?

Funny you should mention name tags.
I was thinking I'd like to have name tags that show everbody's: Forums Name, Real Name, State.

Exactly what I was thinking Frank. I had also thought about labels such as "BeeLady's Piano Teacher" or "TerryTunes' spouse"! \:D

Since attendance is limited to 25. . .
And since 17 are confirmed and 5 are maybes. . .
I hereby convert from a maybe to the 18th confirmed.

I'll be the one with the very zippy flattop.
Don't forget to add Miles Traveled to the nametags.
That means Joy, Rick, and Penny - you guys can't go. . .
I'd hate to lose out on that Rosewood AA. ;\)

Frank,

I guess you should put me down as "confirmed," since we're getting down to the wire. May 10 looks good as of now.

All that might happen is a music gig might turn up for that day...in which case someone can go in my place. The nature of freelancing...but chances of that are unlikely.

Thanks.

Rich D. and I are considering flying up for the day but are unable to stay overnight on either 5/9 or 5/10. What time do the festivities begin on 5/10? In that regard, I see that there is a flight that gets into Manchester before 8 a.m.; if the tour did not begin until 9:30 or so, we likely could make it.

Frank, As a fairly new member who recently acquired an M&H Model A, I'd be grateful if you'd add me to the list.

I think it would be a wonderful learning experience for anyone who can attend.

Frank,
Please confirm me, too. I'll fly directly into Boston on the 9th and spend the night in Haverhill. Then hope to maybe get a ride or travel with other forum members down to NYC after the tour.

Frank,

If there really are 2 spots left, I would like to confirm for both of them. I'm not sure which thread to use to let you know.

Thanks,

Boo Hoo!! My name was not added to the confirmed list. I feel so..so.... rejected (and ejected)! Something tells me that I will survive. My hubby is laughing at me!! First I told him that there would not be room for him and now he is having the last laugh!!
