I can't make it this year, because I just don't have enough $$ because I got into the skeptical movement very recently.  But I AM accepting donations to the "Send Mike to TAM5 fund".  If I get enough donations in time, I'll be there. :)

In the meantime, I'm opening a TAM6 account so this problem doesn't occur next year.

I went last year and was hoping to see you guys.  But I can't afford two years in a row.  Too bad - I would really love to get together with the Rogues and other listeners.  Drink one for me if you get the chance...

Damn it all, why does it have to be in January? That's our busiest time at work.  :cry:

Hey, I'm not above sleeping on a couch if it comes down to it.  Provided said couch is longer than 5 feet.


Oh, who am I kidding?  I can sleep in a teacup if I have to.

Alright, if you're going to talk about TAM, do it quietly.  There's just no way I can make it.  Any word on the possible east-coast iteration?

We have them once or twice a year as Ness event.  Goto www.theness.com and keep an eye out for out next event.  I dont think we have a date yet but if enough people show an interest(hint hint) Steve can schedule one.  We usually have a speaker and food.  In the summer we have a pool available.
