Um.... what's the best way to put this? The Soiree is great, the after party is even better - last year it was an informal 'crawl' with some current and former SF people and it was fun as hell.

I am accepting donations for a plane ticket, actually 2 plane tickets, there is another upcoming GBF event in the works I'd like to attend.

I wonder what it would take to convince my DS to grant me a weekend pass so I can attend... :D

It's a civilian function to raise money for the Green Beret Foundation that is being hosted by the South Carolina Upstate Paralegal Association. Most of the attendees will be civilians.

I have a whole chest freezer that I need to clean out. It also has a soft-freeze that keeps beer really cold. Bring it on!

My plan is to drive to SC starting right after morning rush hour Friday 24 JUL. That will get us on-site around 1300-1400, plenty of time to meet and greet, drink some more beer, shine boots, etc.

My neighbor, former Cav guy, is driving up Saturday 25 JUL in his SUV. Another neighbor (LEO) will be driving as well. I'm not sure if they are leaving on Friday or Saturday. Plenty of room for passengers if needed. I drive a two seater so TS and I are it for mine.

Flight reservations made. We meet at (1VB)compforce house on the 23rd and proceed to drink all his adult beverages. 24th we drive up to Greenville and drink someone else's adult beverages.
25th should be a blur, 26th hangover. ;) Maybe some glutinous carnivorous mastication in between drinking. I'll provide the culinary advisement for the indigenous forces.

See you all there.

I may have to Dropbox them, Herr Troll, but I think that'll be OK if I get everyone's email and send an invite to see the pics and download. I think I did that with the Swett Warrior pics, yes?

And I'm reserving judgement on the man-kini/thong/gown TS wears until I see it. Who knows, he might be able to pull it off.

Just returned. (Didn't put on the man-kini cause I forgot to wax......)

Great event, some great speakers!

Professionalsoldiers.com donated some knives, (one was a serial numbered PS.com knife) and they did very well.

Met some old and new friends! It was a pleasure to meet everyone!
