should have a rule in which defaulted beer trades should be completed before a member can attend a gathering IMO
ill pick steve up on my way. think i will drive.
I heard decaturstevo is going to try to make this. But he is out of work and will probably be hitchhiking to this one. He said he will be going via I-40, to I-26, then into StL via I-64. He can meet up at an overpass with anyone going that way.
