Can't wait to wear mine!! So many people have no idea the Batfish is there, and this really helps get the word out since volunteers know alot about her, and can inform people when they ask.

My wife and I will be there on Sunday, May 25th.  Probably be there around noon or so.  Driving in from Vicksburg in the morning.

Man, I live due east of Vicksburg on I-20 in Chunky.  If you happen to be taking I-20 to Highway 45 to go south, you'll drive right by my house.  Odd.

Tom - will do.  I anticipate being there around noon.  We'll be driving in from Vickburg and hope to get away from there around 7:30 AM

You will be guarded, strip sheached weighed and x-rayed, However if you bring a MK 14 or 18 torpedo with you we might find a wrench or two to swap with you. Looking forward to seeing you.

Lance come on over.

Lance - any way you can drive down on that Sunday?  It would be so cool to visit in person.
