members who have signed up in the past week or so. We haven't caught

Welcome to all.....Had a nice time in Texas during the holidays and
even got to try "turduckin" for Christmas dinner. I always try to
find at least one BBQ joint that serves calf fries while there, but
they didn't know what I was talking about at Dickey's. I'm looking
forward to seeing everyone in Portland next Saturday and Sunday.
