I would like to attend. May 11 works better than May 18 for me.

Myself, along with Retired B/C Jack Kleehaas, "68jk09", Retired Capt John Bendick, "jbendick", and Joe Materia, "mack" (who by the way is a Retired U.S. Army Colonel), all agree on Maggie Mays in Queens.
Recently, myself and Frank D., "fdce54", attended an event there, along with Jack K. There was about 20 guys or so and we all had a MMs, home cooked meal. The meal was GREAT !!! BUT - I got on the scale the next morning and the reading wasn't very good. Needless to say: "It was on the PLUS side".
Chief Kleehaas told me that in order to reserve the rear room at MMs, he would need a commitment of who plans to attend earlier than one week in advance. My guess is that there may be a few more guys as well. I was told by Doug M., "AuxWarYearsCapt", that he plans to attend too.
I have everybody's email address here so far that has mentioned about attending, including Philip D, "Lebby", that I needed. Once things get going, I'll use that to contact you. I will include my phone numbers as well if you have any questions. I hope to get the first email out in a few days.
