    Everyone if you haven't sent in your registration yet or plan on registering at the door. Please send me a PM,email or call me at 860 267-4155 and let me know if you plan on attending the banquet. I need a head count and there might be a chance of filling all seats. We can only accommodate so many seats

    Thanks Steve
