We will communicate with Cat via VOIP/Skype.com or IM while we are there, and express our sincere loss. Hopefully the guilt won't make Cat feel worse for not being there. Cat can than provide us with our mission, (should we decide to accept it). Hopefully my laptop will not self destruct after we receive our "Mission Impossible" instructions w/o Cat.

Here is the Preliminary Program as of today from the ACA web site. I have highlited the times that we can gather as a group. I will try to make arrangements with the food and beverage staff to provide standard seating for us at our meals as I did last year. Of course we are not limited to this schedule, as we can make plans to meet at the lounge bar as many times as you like. :rolleyes: :o :rolleyes:
