I was out of town, but that place is a block away from my house - I could walk there! Perhaps next time I'll stop by with my V

That would be great Richard. The next meet at Cafe Express isn't until June 12th so it's a way off unless you could make the Bluebonnet Run with us on April 10th. There are other XLR owners in Houston that have expressed interest in a local club and the these guys are interested in having XLR owners attend their meetings. Very informal technical and social meeting, no membership required.

Here is the meeting schedule for the rest of the year. I don't make all of them as I live about 1 1/2 hours North on Lake Livingston, but hope to see you there someday. -Steven-

Wouldn't you know it would be on that weekend in April. I have family obligations scheduled and can't make it. Brenham/Chapel Hill/Independence should be hopping with bluebonnets by that time. Hope someone posts some pictures

I missed the fact that there will be a meeting in May, but it will be on Saturday May 7th instead of the usual Sunday due to Mother's day being on that Sunday. I'll put that on my calendar. It would be great if we could have several XLRs show up. There are usually about 8-10 Allante' owners there. I would really like to see that shiny infared XLR in person.
