It doesn't look like much has happened yet on the planning for this get together of the WineBoard denizens. So, I guess I'll start it off. Because of many, many things happening in our lives, Judy and I can only make the trip if it's in July. Anytime before or after is way too full of other stuff, mainly Judy's trade show shedules. While it can be a bit on the warm side then, it doesn't compare to the 100+ time we spent last year in the Prosser area. We would really like to see as many of you folks as possible in Napa and Sonoma, so let's hear what you all have to say. Now's as good a time as any to start planning.

Would love to finally join one! As my schedule is so variable (It is not usual for me to get a call to change my travel destinations as I am waiting at the airport gates), so I will stay and watch this. I will come if I arrive
Looking forward to seeing the faces behind the key strokes....perhaps this is one of those times I need to be careful what I wish for???

I desperately want to attend but may not be able to afford to. Due to my mother's circumstances (selling her home and moving into a very nice retirement community) some interest on principal that was being distributed to my sister and me is now needed for living expenses for Mom. Therefore, I won't take an active part in the planning, but if I find I can attend, I will try to do so. (And I will be envious of those who attend and eager for your reports on the board).

Is this still going on? I would love to attend if it is open to beginners! I will be stationed in San Diego at the time.
- Innkeeper - 03-06-2006 04:25 PM
No problem WEC. The offlines are open to all. At the one in the Finger Lakes, we not only had a novice or two, but one even brought her sister! Good time was had by all.

I would love to make it as well. My schedule is easy to move around so I should be able to make it any time.
- californiagirl - 03-06-2006 09:22 PM
Gee... don't think I'll get away with not being around for this one=)
- TheEngineer - 03-06-2006 09:29 PM
CG or Navy?
- WileECoyote - 03-06-2006 10:24 PM
US NAVY. I will be in school for the summer time. I love San Diego!! Then on to the USS COLE in VA.

Tin can sailor myself, way back when. ASROC Gunner's Mate out of Mayport, Florida on the DD-872 Forrest Royal.
- Innkeeper - 03-07-2006 08:42 AM
The Cole!!! Well I guess it must be in pretty good shape now after the rebuild. My nephew was on her sister ship when the Cole got hit. You gobs and your boats!
- WileECoyote - 03-07-2006 08:45 AM
Mayport is a nice area nowadays. We have I think a 900 series up here at Battleship Cove, the USS Joseph P Kennedy. We sometimes do weekend drill with the Sea Cadets up there. Man, the space on the DD's was pretty tight, that and those squeaky racks!
I am a blackshoe. Fire Controlman 1st Class. The Cole is in good shape. They have a nice memorial on the mess decks. I wanted to go somewhere that people would recognize.

Is it Napa/Sonoma for sure? Or we could possibly do Oregon wine country. I can probably arrange some good visits through work and setup some others as well through various contacts here.
- californiagirl - 03-08-2006 09:54 PM
Don't mean to be a lump on a log, but given my dh's work schedule, I can probably swing the cali visit- but doubtful on anywhere else.

Barnsey Napa/Sonoma is kinda' set io stone as the last offline was in the Wash area. As soon as the dates are decided I'm sure betwixt us we can get some fairly neat tastings. WW
- Kcwhippet - 03-09-2006 08:45 AM
I have a few contacts also in Napa/Sonoma, so we can really have a great time. When the dates are considered, don't forget, Judy and I are pretty much constrained to July.
- Georgie - 03-09-2006 12:49 PM
My sister and I had a wonderful time in the Finger Lakes. This group makes everyone feel welcome! I highly recommend that if you can possibly attend, plan to do so.
