    Just ordered my shirt Bruce, and I look forward to getting it soon. I haven't seen the design, so it will be a surprise!
    Take care, have a great Gathering, and I will see you and Linz next year.

    Sorry we won't be seeing you this year Earl. I'll be sending you your shirt from IL once the event concludes. And yes, next year!
