Not classic or vintage, but...

How many of the C & V residents/lurkers are going to attend the Seattle Bike Expo this weekend?

I'm planning on going after work, on Sunday morning as soon as the place opens.

Who's going to be there so I can do a meet and greet?

Er, mods, if you think this is really not in the appropriate place, feel free to move it, but I wanted to zero in on the PNWers who happen to share that affection for the C & V bikes...

I'll be the short, red-headed person...

Blue Order and 55/Rad live down in Oregon--it's not that they couldn't come up, but it's a long drive. I've met Blue Order, but not 55/Rad...

I do know that at least a few of the regular posting members of BF will be there, I just hope I can find most of them .

Yes, I don't know if it's on tomorrow, but I suppose I shall find out. I guess this means I should take the camera, just in case, eh?
