hey, great news! will it happen out in City Park as in years past or at the newerish Gonzales area? I still have fond memories of seeing all those 'streams just block from my house and thinking "one day I'll have one of those..." now I do... "I now pronounce you Man and Trailer...you may renovate the bride..."
