    My Elise will turn 11 in August. They might have fun together. Here's hoping to make it!

    Yeah you never know with kids and summer schedules but if it's in Ohio I stand a much better chance of making it just because of the proximity!

    Sorry but we can't attend if you guys decided to hold another Kingkon weekend this upcoming summer. Last Kingkon was
    great and I had a blast weekend in Maine with my SKMB friends. But cash will be a issue this year and my vacation too. I don't know
    yet what month I am able to keep my summer vacation. But no we can't come sorry again.

    ...since it looks like things are heading for North Central Ohio....thought I'd fill you in on something else...many of you probably remember, but didn't know-that a couple of the number one hits of the late 60's originated in Mansfield...Yummy, Yummy, Yummy-Ohio Express and Little Bit of Soul from The Music Explosion.

    ...having said that, and by virtue of my broadcasting days-I lived in the area for several years, and got to know a number of the band members from both groups...I became especially close to Rick Nesta, the lead guitarist of The Music Explosion....in the later years, he took over running the family business on the square in downtown Mansfield, Rocky's Pub-named after his father-and a fixture for over 44 years...Rick has been kind enough to invite all of us to swing by his place for a gathering during whatever weekend is chosen...his menu is stellar...and his friendship even more so....and by the by?...I had the honor waaaaaaay back in '91 to introduce them during their first ever reunion concert!!!...the video clip of my intro and more about the band follows if you'd be interested in watching....

    Well I see it is at 12 votes so that works for me! I can drive down to Ohio from Manitoba. Just have to decide on a good date that would work for everybody who can make it!

    Will the con be held in Mansfield, then?
    I still have no idea if I will be able to go or not, but I want to check prices for the flight, so I need to know which international airport is closest. I would love to meet you guys in person!

    ...Since voting is now closed(and if one of the lovely Mods would be so kind as to take the poll down), now comes the even more fun part...voting on the weekend to have it in Mansfield...I propose-since it's now in my large lap to try to juggle-July 18-20, July 25-27 or August1-3. Can somebody put that poll up there for technologically challenged me?...I'll leave voting open on that till 2-16-14...at that point, I will start laying what groundwork I can with my contacts, and all I ask is, you guys go easy on me....I've never headed up something like this....and it will be a labor of love...

    Thank you Scott for all the work you are doing for King Kon 2014.
    You'll do great "hollering" them to Mansfield.
    May this second meeting of the Ka-Tet be as special as the first. Don't forget pictures and posted reviews for those of us who will be unable to attend.

    Yes I am - come hell or high water. I could not make it to Maine last year so whether hubby comes with me or not, I will be there :)
