I happened to be emailing to MNGreen (Doug) about the new Tax bill the other day and we got into a conversation about Shelley's Woodroast and other platyfests of days gone by. I told him I have often thought that a reunion platyfest would be fun and include all the original posters (aka Old timers) from the early CCBB days before bwca.com and other distractions.

We could do it at Canoecopia but we already have get togethers there-I think getting together like we used to at a traditional platyfest would be fun also.

I'm thinking maybe April or May before the canoe season heats up.

Anyway-if you think this is a good idea we need to get the word out seeing the CCBB doesn't see the traffic it used to. Please send an email, a phone call or anything to any and all CCBB members you know and see if they are interested, tell them to watch the CCBB bulletin board for dates and times and lets see if we can't get a good group together for some fun.

I think it would be fun and I look forward to seeing as many "CCBB Old Timers" as possible in the spring.

I am pretty sure Shelley's closed a few years ago so we will be looking for a new venue. Most likely it will be somewhere in the Minneapolis/St Paul area. If anyone has suggestions please shoot them my way.

I think a brewery makes more sense.
