I am planning on it. Whether it happens or not is still up in the air. If I do I will have a Skiroule snowmobile in tow. Have to pick that up in northern Ohio.

Smoker 2 and I will be there Wednesday evening through Sunday morning. The banquet on Saturday evening is my favorite part followed by the parts venders. I was told that all vender spots are sold out and that they will more venders than ever before at a winter convention.

I wish I could go. I am starting my new job on Monday, and my employer would frown on taking time off that soon. :) Hopefully they will let me have time off for RPRU.

I plan to be there at least one of the days. I probably won't be there in the day - but rather than the evening (with the exception of maybe Saturday).

I'll have Dad with me.... and the wife hasn't said no - Yet. :lol:

Since I only live 10 miles away from the Holiday Inn.... :)

Sure wish I could attend. Got too many obligations here and I'm a long ways away in the South. Some day I will be able to attend RPRU, never been to either.

Nope I will still be moderating here. :) You all can't get rid of me that easy. After being in orientation all day today, I think they might be more flexible than I thought, we shall see.

Glad to hear that. Sometimes it's difficult to find people who are dedicated and talented. RPM is fortunate to have you on board IMO. ;)

Wasn't planning on going originally. But I'll be leaving Edwardsport for the weekend Saturday am. Just as well drive over and say Hi to everybody before I head North.

BJ, Just now saw your question about registering. Registration is not required just to come and look around.

So if I wanted to go to a session, I can just show up?
