Hey All, I should have sent this out earlier. As many of you know I will be having my AUS activated on Monday Oct 6th at UT Southwestern in Dallas. I talked to GENE tonight and me mentioned another HW Brother that would like to meet with us. So, I told him I would post this. If anyone is interested in meeting myself, GENE, and JETGUY we will be at the Embassy Suites @ 2727 Stemmons Freeway in Dallas, TX at 10:00 a.m. If anyone is interested in meeting guys that have had either the AUS or IPP please come and see us.
I will also be there Sunday evening so if anyone would like to meet then that would be fine also. My Cell Phone is 405-476-3726. Just give me a call and we'll see what we can arange.
Thanks for being a Great Bunch of Folks,
