well, last night it was Hack, Moose, Derf, Klos, Nik "1994 Italia" Vollaro, Tbird and myself at Smoking Al's BBQ joint.

There was lots of good spotting too, lots of great Pan Am equipment.
Nik did most of the spotting, though he was a bit perturbed and confused mammary glands for engines.

Let's hope to see some spotting photos by Derf. Also, you have to see the rib rack Tbird devoured! Most impressive.

Derf, where are the pics?

It was a great evening. Fred of course can never leave the camera home. Tommy ate some ribs that looked so big they were from an elephant. The drinks were flowing and Mario got constant reminders of Italy'a penalty kick in injury time to send Australia packing! Can't wait to do it again.

Now we just have to wait for Fred to post the pictures, yes Fred was taking pictures, I'm as shocked as you are. If Nick held up that recorder one more time we were going to hand him his official card. LOL Oh for the record I didn't finish all those ribs, to big. I'm still trying to figure out what extinct animal they came from, god they were good.

him to hand it to me...I read it twice today and found it to be better than
Nick implied....Thank you yet again Nick....Great Stuff!!!

(FYI) I used my Kit lens with a .42 wide angle screw on that makes the
quality of the images just slightly better then a $5.00 Walmart disposable
film camera....but the feel is just so fun, the poor quality is worth it until
I can afford a real fisheye!

Guys, I had a blast!...and even though it was fun at first, by the end of the night I am sure Tommy wanted to BBQ that tape recorder too.

Thanks again Nick for arranging it!

That ref did a great job! He made the right the right call even though he knew he would be villified for it.

Looking forward to tomorrow! GOOALLLLLL ITALIA!!
