    Topeca's before the Richmond VCDL meeting December 2, 2010

    Considering the quality of the food and the service we've received at Unos in the past, is anyone interested in going to Topeca's for dinner before the meeting?

    Uno's on Hull Street - the one near Phil's house. Meeting officially starts at 7:30 but most of the good conversation starts at 7.

    Sorry, but you will have to look up the address.

    As for Topeka's before - I was thinking more like either 6 PM or wait till afterwards.

    stay safe.

    Suits me and it sounds like it's OK with Skidmark.

    It will take me a few minutes to breakdown the sound system that Philip doesn't know I'm bringing

    Myself and others do thank you Peter - it is very difficult to hear (impossible?) from the rear and in the hall like area of that room. Some of us have trouble from 5' away so put a speaker up front too, please.

    We had the room packed. Lots of good insight - diced, chopped and canned for future use.

    Sorry I had to miss the after-event meal.

    Whoever said "Better living through chemistry" knew what they were talking about.

    stay safe.

    Only for a couple of years and that was before push button phones and when people "dialed up" their friends to tell them about the best ammo prices - which incidentally was about a penny a round.
