Do you have a link to the yahoo group? I did a search on groups for NEBS and only found a few things about Blues music and a few other random things.
I don't blame you for wanting a warm place to sleep instead of being out there cooking. Hey being a judge would be just as fun IMO
Yes I would love to meet up. Keep us up to date on information as you know it. I just wrote to my brother and his soon to be fiance to see if they would like to make a weekend out of it and go up with my wife and daughter and me.
