    Kevin - We're still on for the 5th. Not sure how many of the folks that are coming to Blue Hills are going to the annual meeting. We'd love to have you guys join us though. Current plan is:

    For those folks that want to get a hike in we're meeting at the Trailside Museum at 10:00am. We'll hike up the Red Dot trail and drop off any lunch stuff at the Obs that we don't want to carry the rest of the morning. We will then hike the Skyline Trail loop with a plan to get back at the Obs for 1:00. The non-hiking group will meet at I assume 12:00 - 12:30 at the Trailside Museum lot and head up to the Obs (1/2 hour is plenty for the short walk). Not sure about the order of the 1:00 events, but we'll have a picnic lunch and a tour of the Obs. Should be wrapping up around 3:00 to 3:30.

    In the next couple of weeks we'll send out an update with a final roll call and confirmation.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks!

    Have we decided what we are doing for lunch. Is there some place to eat at the Obs, Are we each bringing something or are we each bringing our own lunch?

    Since nobody else has responded I will, but I don't know that I have the answers. I've never actually been on the Obs grounds - just on the trails near it - so I'm not sure about where is the best place to eat. Hopefully the weather is good and we can just sit outside on the grass. Hopefully someone that knows the details can tell us. As for lunch, my opinion is that it's probably easies to each bring our own food rather than trying to work out a shared food plan. That said, I'm open to either way. In any case we could bring stuff to share for desert or something like that. Opinions everyone?

    sounds good. i just talked to Don. He said we can sit and eat in the picnic area. I think that everyone bringing their own lunch and a desert we can share would work out well

    I like the "Brown Bag" your own lunch idea too. That would be easiest. For dessert I will bring a few kinds of TastyKake pies and cakes.

    I think these are the right answers - bring lunch - and if you can, bring something to share for dessert.
