You must be North San Diego County! I know a slew of folks from the San Diego chapter but not so much from your neck of the woods, even though my younger son's godparents lived in Solano Beach for a love while. Hey, I hope you have been admiring the crfg.org site which I built (knowing virtually nothing about such things)

I have the eye-hand coordination of a paramecium, but if I get down into your neck of the woods I will definitely stop by, mashie in hand.
