Hi FMF minsurfers! This is a friendly reminder of the FMF party, that will run on Tuesday 8 February at 7:00 PM in Casa Vicente. The best companionship in town! :-)

Suposed attending: over 30 people

See you there!

Jordi

Casa Vicente is in downtown Tucson, 375 S. Stone Ave, Tucson AZ 85701
Stone Ave is one way, heading south. Get onto Stone at downtown (Congress or Broadway) or any point north, and then head south, upper the Covention Center. There is ample parking.

At one point I found myself leaning back in my chair at the edge of the room taking in the ambiance of a bunch of friendly mineral people having fun. What a great event. Thanks Jordi.

Thank you so much Jordi and Gail. It was so wonderful meeting so many of the people from this forum. The food was great. The conversations were great. My only regret is that I did not meet more of the FMFers.


Thanks!
Bob

We were about 60 people with a lot of fun. Now in Tucson is 11:30 PM and it means very late, because usually we wake up about 5 AM and all of us we are overwhelmed and exhausted. For the party, for Tucson, and for the whole Show. FMFers taken literally hundreds photos, they will publish them soon. Please stay tuned.

From my side I don't will publish any photo of the party until the FMFers ends to publish their own images in order don't disturb what they will do.

It was extremely fun and friendly, or at least is what the people said ;-)

Jordi:

You are indeed an inspirational leader and so modest! Can't begin to thank you enough for the great party, my wife Merle and I had a wonderful time. I believe there has never been anything like this in conjunction with the Tucson Show and I have been coming most years since 1960 when I was a dealer at the fair grounds south of Tucson where the show was in a quonset hut with a dirt floor.

Jordi

Thank you so much for your hospitality last night at the FMF gathering. We are overwhelmed by your generosity. The food and wine were fantastic but the chance to sit and talk with so many great folks was even better. It was also nice in the middle of the hectic pace of the Tucson shows to have the chance to sit and relax. Thanks for that opportunity as well.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Barb and Julian

OK. As it seems that all attenders to the party have not the possibility to download their images of the party right now, because or they haven't computer or the net lines here are too bad, and also considering that Gail she's doing more than any person could do downloading her photos with some technical difficulties, I will publish our own photos ASAP. It happens that today started the Main Show, so everything becomes hectic...

Just to diversify, yet still a smaller version of the FMF party even though it was on a different night....a great photo of fun last night. John and Merle White, Bob Cook, and the Jordis, both.
Me too!

Here them are. Considering my possibilities I will publish all photos that Jordi Deusedes did and as them are. Probably, better details and explanations in future publishings of other FMFers.
