    I had the final meeting with group sales at the hotel of choice today. As soon as she sends me the contracts, (probably by end of business tomorrow) I'll send you all the info. I think you'll be pleased with the rate and amenities. We should be able to get everyone in one location no problem. And, there are several bar's on premises (gotta nail down the priorities you know). So..... by the end of the week, the long wait should be over. Yippee........ Getting a lot of great interest, hope to top last years event. Just a few more days..... really. Stay tuned....

    We heard that you snore, so we took a vote and decided on a hotel instead.

    Not everyone lives in a multi-building compound like you do, Steve. ;)

    Thanks for the update Kathleen. :thumbup:

    We may just fill the place.

    We appreciate all of your hard work on this Kathleen!!! If 2019 tops 2018, I'm not sure I'll be able to handle it. It was one of the funnest weekends I've had in a long time.

    They may have live entertainment, whether they like it or not!

    A bigger concern is the number of whiskey bottles they'll have on hand. :LOL:

    Please make sure to amend the contract so they agree to have Gentleman Jack available in the bars!

    A couple of cases for each bar would be a good start. :D

    If Memphis was any indication, they will be asking us to play.

    I'm sorry, but I may have missed something. I went back through the list of possible attendees, and I didn't see any gentlemen on that list?? Did you mean to say "Degenerate Jack"??

    You don't have to be a gentleman to drink Gentleman Jack!
    Based on several years of BGU Live, that should be patently obvious!
    And the term is "Reprobate" not "Degenerate." Please try to keep up! :LOL:

    BTW, do you have your songs picked out for the debut of Sloslunas and the Sorry-Ass Reprobates?

    Cut me a little slack. I have only attended 7 BGU Live events and 1 NE BGU jam. So, I am fairly new at this. Maybe someday I will learn the errors of my way...

    Steve

    PS. Very interested in any songs someone may have picked out for the "Sorry-Ass Reprobates".

    I'm actually interested in that, as well. Be nice to have some tunes sorta-kinda practiced in my back pocket so I'm not 100% comping on the fly. What's the rogue's gallery of usual suspects? :Beer:
