I've never had the time to go to Rich's beach party in years past, but I am making a conscious effort to go this year. I've already reserved my room. Festivities are July 15th and 16th. I'm going to take off work Thursday the 14th, and Monday the 18th. For me here in Houston, It's a 19 hr drive, and I would love to get a Texas delegation to come along with me.
