It is with great sadness I'd like to announce Dr. Hanneman passed away on December 12, 2020. His legacy will live on forever!

One more note. We will be bringing our raman spectrometer to the dinner, so if anyone has something they'd like scanned bring it along.

I had day from hell flying from simple Austin to Tucson. Flight cancelled after 8 hour wait in Austin. Bought another ticket last minute on AA. Missed connection in Phoenix. I’ll get there late now. Wish I had made the dinner to meet you guys. I’ll be around though and if anyone needs company while shopping for rough then please let me know. Text or call me. Looking forward to this weekend. 512-468-4300

I also hated missing the meet up. After lunch, while visiting Alberto and Mikko’s setup in the afternoon, I began feeling strange. It turned out to be food poisoning. I spent the rest of the evening, night, and early morning going from bed to bathroom and back again.

I crashed the party, and am so glad I did! Thank you Stephen for organizing. It was great to see everyone.

It was great to put faces to names....or is it the other way around.

I got completely thrown off my game as I was not remotely expecting to see Lisa Elser and at first (second and third) glance thought that some unknown doppelganger was sitting next to Arya.

With a cordial smile I asked the doppleganger, "And what is your name?"
"Lisa".

:smt001 Oh, my gawd. She even has the same same.

Took a second or two :idea:

I think a good time was had by all. Great seeing everyone! And, thanks for being GO supporters!

Thanks Stephen for your organizational skills! Anyone take any photos they can post? And per Lisa's suggestion we should now be able to upload pics of all sizes.

Justin, still waiting to see that ring. :wink:

Brian, food poisoning? You poor thing. That is the worst. By the way, that didn't happen AT the dinner, it is why Brian couldn't attend.

I had exactly the same reaction, but it was a very pleasant surprise!

Thank you to everyone who could come out! I didn't get to talk much with everyone but I was very glad to see the turnout and put some faces to usernames. We have a fairly diverse crowd and it is really fun to get a feel for the numerous layers this industry has.

If people wouldn't mind, I am curious to know what people thought of Rigo's as a venue. I didn't get to ask everyone what they thought--I know it was a ways out of town, certainly in contrast to El Charro.

I think the waiter at the restaurant was golden!
But I actually prefer El Charro. I like its ambiance and location and even the food better.

Next time!
No one took any photos at the restaurant?

It was so nice to meet so many of you in person. I had a great time and want to thank the organizers for both the dinner, and this fine website.

Steve
