Okay, so two items of business. The rules and a final head count. Was at the Seafood Depot on Friday night and we need to get as close to a head count as possible and final confirmation of those attending so we can work with the Depot to make sure things runs smoothly with wait staff and so forth. We need the team head count and the teams in red to check back in. I would like to return to the Depot so your alls help is much appreciated.

    Updates are continually happening.

    Thanks for the replies. This will make things work out better on the planning side.

    For whatever reason if anyone runs into an issue, only one member from the team needs to be at the captains meeting should something happen to your plans at the last minute.

    GTFU.
