Re: [hiking-647] Indoor skydiving in Union City on March 1 at 3:30PM

Nobody seems to want to broach the glaring fact the Byron seemed
extremely forthcoming with Bob regarding his recollections from the
club on Saturday night and even seemed to ask Bob for some advice in
the latter part of the email.

What I'm wondering is what Bob's response to Byron's email would have
been had the email not gone out to the whole group.

Just seems a bit too "chummy" for me. Generally speaking, to a man,
that's not the kind of subject matter that a casual acquaintance would
assert on someone unless they had already established that kind of
rapport.

Just saying!

PS: Kindly do more dog friendly events!
PPS: "Release the hounds!"

Mike
