Re: New York again, Easter

- Chris Doty (60, 66 - Daniel is bringing a 63) My 66 is in storage, it turns out. I have 60 and 63 (and 70, 85, etc), but no 66 to hand, I'm afraid. I may be visiting storage before the event, and if so will update you, but at the moment it is unavailable. Looking forward to it! Have we arranged p...

Re: Thu 17 March - the 4th Annual Doty Cup

BOOM! spoken like your 2016 Doty Cup Champion! Congratulations Simon - way to show 'em how it's done. Excellent presentation, nailing the Musar (I would never permitted them, great proof that the flight was blind to myself as well!) and was generally merry and awesome. Looking forward to seeing the...

Hi, due to I am sick with a very bad cold since last Friday and I have not been able to get rid of it I am very sad to say I have to drop out of this event. Sorry about this but I still feel very bad and most importantly I would not be able to taste anything due to the very bad cold. regards WS1 So...

Re: New York again, Easter

Sounds good Miguel - Regarding venue, Friday night will make things tough, but NorthSquare has a private room that we've used to good effect in the past. Another place to check w/ would be Amali (60th btwn Park and Lex). Trying to think where else...has been too long! Sarabeth's maybe Maybe Houstons...

mini Graham vertical '70, '77, '83 (can add '94 if enough attendees) total bw participants $220 (add $65 if '94 needed) Theme/price appealing enough? Sounds like a steal to me!
