    Hi Jack just found your schedule for January and will be sure to make the field trip on jan 3rd. I so excited to finally be here and available for one of your trips.
    Looking forward to seeing you again – probably been ten plus years. Charley and I were at that long-ago first Sketchers Group that met probably in 1998 I believe at lake street, near Mountain lake in the Presidio (?) on a rather damp day.
    Feliz Navidad

      So good to hear from you again! It will be great to reunite. There are a few folks who also were in that original journal club still involved and sketching. You remember John Attwood. He is doing amazing things in his journal. Looking forward to seeing you.
