I think it's only fair that you girls in the Northern parts get a chance at meeting Dirk after such a long time, so I hope that nothing unexpected will happen and that everyone will be able to go.
You deserve it! Nice, the idea of a small BSG conv. within the large one. Let's keep our fingers crossed, who knows what might happen?
And Sharon, take good care of yourself! We are having a regular flu wave here at the moment (not feeling so great myself right now, so I'm doubling on the vit. C intake with oranges et.). At least, the Winnipeg conv. is a nice thing to look forward to.
