    Hi James, This is a quick update to inform you that I did not receive a refund for the postponed Porgy & Bess trip by August 17th as was previously committed. I called the number on the Goombay adventure website; however nobody answered and the voice mail box was full. Believe it or not, the voice mail message actually instructed me to leave a text message! I did, and I am still awaiting a reply to my text. I also sent an e-mail to the address listed on their website. If I don't receive a response from them by COB Monday, I will open a dispute with Pay Pal. I respectully submit that as a new member to this group, I am very disappointed with how this trip was handled.

    • James "Big Butch" G.

      Yolonda you are absolutely right and I apologize for the slow response. The number that you called was my cell phone and during the summer It was a little tough to catch up with me. I also have to admit that one of my asst. organizers was the lead on this event and I neglected not to follow up with her. I assure you that the majority of our Meetup's go on without a hitch so I hope you will continue to be a part of this group and attend one of our upcoming events.

    Hey Butch, I've reached out several times, I haven't received my refund, please advise...

    September 5, 2012

    • James "Big Butch" G.

      Hey Dena, my records show that I issued a Paypal refund on July 26th so please double check and let me know.

    I just found this information about this trip. I am very interested. Please contact me if anyone is still going. I would love to go.

  • James "Big Butch" G.

    I apologize for not updating this Meetup on this page but this event has been postponed. We did not get the number of 1st deposits by the due date so we didn't have a choice. If you ha e not received a refund by now you will by Aug 17.

    August 12, 2012

  • Brenda

    I think it is cancelled because this trip is listed under another meetup I belong to and on that page it's postponed.

    August 12, 2012

  • Marsha

    I just paid my first payment online so apparently its not cancelled. Next payment due Aug 15. The address is 300 Garrett Morgan Blvd, Hyattsville or Landover, MD according to the website. This is a bus leaving the Garrett Morgan Blvd.

    This is an excellent Performance. I had the opportunity to see it while it was here in DC... I would recommend this opera to all! A magnificant production.

    Where is the Garrett Morgan P/R lot? DC/MD/VA? Can you provide an address for departure?

  • Sherlon

    I live here in the New York area...I can meet everyone at the theater. Are we each buy tickets individually?

    Is this a bus trip or are we car pooling?
