    Really looking forward to this guys! Depending on how many people come, I plan to buy the food, but if it's a huge gathering I may need help. I will keep checking the thread for details. I don't know if I can PM yet cuz I'm so new, but CaligulaPolk if you want to exchange phone numbers to help coordinate things (I am somewhat familiar with TTY, or I can speak with your wife...) it's cool, shoot me a PM!

    WE deaf people dont use TTY anymore. We use Videophone (Relay service or direct with two VPs) and i have not hooked mine up yet. I also will need to change my phone number to 813 #. I would say about 5-10 people unless they bring kids and wives along. would be nice if less 10 people.

    Doro and i spoke on PM, and hes trying to help us to have a good time. Kudos to him

    Sounds good, I can certainly swing that. I figure I'll bring steaks, (burgers too if there are kids coming, I would like to bring my son, who is 13, to see the cool stuff, but if nobody else brings kids, then I won't) and some cooked shrimp for cocktail/appetizers. If anyone has a special request, let me know (I get AWESOME grouper!) and I can get other stuff too.
