I'm in. Will bring food, (as Jeff Skilz predicted) and can also offer up the house to meet if needed.

I'll pass on hosting this year as I know we're just going to be super busy at that point, and if it's a mild winter we might even list earlier than the spring.

Have you been to Sichuan Gourmet yet? Best chinese around if you don't mind a hint of authenticity. I loved going there when I lived on Kenmar Dr. How's that for a hijack.

I'm game for wherever/whenever.

Are we announcing patterns so we don't duplicate or is a 'surprise'?

No, but my neighbors talk about it.  Will need to check it out.

I average Sichuan Gourmet about 2x a week for the past 8 or so years. They know me and my wife by voice over the phone. I think they sprinkle crack over their food.

Hmmm.  With all these endorsements both here and by my neighbors, maybe I need to pay more attention to the Sichuan Gourmet.  And God knows how I love crack.

It might be nice to know the other patterns, so we don't end up with 9 gurglers and an adams dry fly :lol

Looking at the calendar..... I'd like to propose either Feb 13 or Feb 27 as the swap gathering, with roughly a 1:00 PM (till whenever)start.  I want to get ahead of this so I can lock it in against other competing factors that tend to rearrange my schedule.   What do you guys think?
