Hello Again Friends:

Two Updates: 

We have 10 spots beginning Wednesday, August 3rd.  Please DO NOT call Elk Valley Ranch, instead let me, MARK know your plans and when you would like to come up. Emma and I will be there on Wednesday. The manager wants to insure we have no overlap from the previous weekend so likes to keep it clear which is why it is available on Wednesday for any who want to come up earlier.

Second, changes in the Saturday dinner plans. We will bring pulled pork for sandwiches instead of tacos.
