Thursday is definitely better than Friday for me - I've got the kids on Friday and probably wouldn't be able to make it.

Ergh, just realized the poll is for Thursday or Friday, not Saturday or Sunday. Either night is going to be tough. Though I guess Friday would be a bit worse, what with the traffic.

East Hill is good with whatever the rest of you think! I have a car, and I will have the Sachs with me so that everyone can admire it .

Thanks msincredible .

Friday will be better for me, and it doesn't matter where the venue is. And yes, I have the same sentiments as Paula ... it's another good excuse for us to get together.

I'll be staying with my mother most of the week--I'll actually be in San Jose, about 200 yards away from Union Middle School (on Los Gatos Almaden Road) starting April 1st, in case anyone would like to contact me for anything.

The Cinderella Classic is on April 5th, which is why there's no way I can do a meet and greet except by chance on that day .

I'm looking forward to meeting as many members as I can!

It would be a crime to miss seeing me, not to mention not being able to see the Sachs!

I put in my perferences but basically I'm OK with whatever works for everyone else. Just remember that if it's Friday night we can't keep East Hill out too late.

(I'd lurve to see the Sacks)

I don't have a preference on day but whereever it is, I request it be near Caltrain or BART.

Sean, that sounds like a great idea! I should be free Wednesday evening for sure. I'll send you a PM later.

Folks, does it look as if we are going to have a meet and greet Friday in the Peninsula? Does anyone have a good suggestion, and time?

I'll be checking back in here later, but it's almost time for me to remove the cat from my arm, and get on the road .

Yes, indeed, Friday on the Peninsula looks like the winner.
I'd propose someplace like Palo Alto or Burlingame, where there are good restaurants very close to the Caltrain station for Henry.

I'll update the first post and start collating who is in. Post up if you are coming!
