May those who love us, love us. And those that don't love us, may God turn their hearts; and if he doesn't turn their hearts may he turn their ankle so we may know them by their limp.... An Old Gaelic Blessing
I'll be there! Let me know if you need any help w/ the event! Thanks for what is shaping up to be one heckuva event.
PS: I'll be collecting NASCAR related TBs to take to Talledega with me the weekend following this event.
PSS: I'll get with the SLAGA (St Louis Area Geocachers Association) folks to see if they can provide me with anything from MOGA (Midwest Open Geocaching Adventure) for either giveaways or maybe just a brief presentation about the MOGA event. I'll also advertise this event at the MOGA event while I am there. Maybe we can get more of our neighbors from the north to visit.
Not much question whether we'll be there or not! Looking forward to it again! We'll watch for further updates.

I'm so excited I can't sit still anymore, LOL. I had such a blast meeting everyone last year. I was super overwhelmed, but it was a blast. And besides, I got on TV, LOL.
