Hey Dick-

welcome to APUG, and Mid-Atlantic APUG at that. There's a loose and growing confederation of us in the DC metro area, not to mention other parts of Maryland, PA, VA and Delaware. We had a great outing to Baltimore back at the beginning of May, and we're looking at doing another outing in June. Your Southern Maryland jaunt sounds like a great idea. Want to organize it for late August or early September? It might be a bit rough doing it Labor Day weekend itself, since lots of people may already have travel plans or family obligations.
