Thanks to all who stayed away at the last minute due to my family undertakings last weekend and kept their patience. I know it's tough to schedule and reschedule the summer, especially if you have kids.

Here is an alternate date for the Beach Party in Waterford, CT: August 10, 2013. I realize it's only about a month away, but hey, watcha' gonna' do? The dates fill up rapidly. Another option is to gather after Labor Day, but I figure school, etc. would exert pressure against that. All the other details remain the same as posted here.
