Hey all,

I'm proposing a "whoever-can-make-it" mini-YYZ meet this coming Wednesday, after work hours (for most of us), post 5 pm meet, to enjoy the longest day of the year, shooting and spotting @ YYZ!!!

No strings attached, no planned dinner, nothing like that, just a quick invite to all who would like to show up!

If you're in, drop me a line here!!!!

You've heard enough about her, you should feel like you knew her!

Ironically, historians aren't quite sure how my ex-wife was erected either....or for that matter caused one  biting
