Every year we pick a mainstream event to attend and have some laid back fun at something we don't need to put a heck of a lot of effort into making happen, and, of course, getting the old meter recalibrated. It's not that we didn't love quietly improving the works in red shale at Liberty NY, enjoying the company of nice folks at Shippensburg PA, noshing on salt pork on some old farm west of Gettysburg, and some other off-circuit events, but after a few years we got homesick for that wonderful village not far from Rochester, NY. The prodigal sons have returned, so pandemonium and hilarity shall ensue.
Without further ado, this year, by golly, it's Mumford, NY, also known as Genesee Country Village. Expect some more specific information later on, but suffice to say this is a happy little company of federals led by folks you know. Email Doug Oakes at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Registration is the old style bulk method, so you know what that means. Strays welcome.
Once again, the dates are 17-19 July 2009. Okay, so it's really a carpe eventum, and not a campaigner adjunct, since we aren't marching very far.
