If you want us to schedule this

is not good.

There will be lots of info to follow very shortly. I'm sure Hillary is basically telling you that a Blenko event is coming up and you might want to keep August 22-23 open. I am pretty sure what's planned for that weekend. but we need to button down a couple of details and we'll get you all the info you need.

So is there a collectors group
or is there not a collector group?
Agenda complete for the 2 days would be very appropriate.

I have the schedule, but it's changing almost daily. I'd hate to give you a schedule and then have to give you and updated one the next day. Be patient just another day or so. It will be worth it.

agenda?
What gives?
