    Hi Luke. I remember you telling me about this & I'd love to go, but my Niece & grand nephew are coming out from Thunder Bay that Friday so I'll have to pass this time. Thanks for thinking of me. As a note, I still have your toque from last year so give me a call when you want to pick it up. Maybe we can have another drum jam? Cheers, - RandyG
