Indy, as a rookie, I will try to attend all events, including the birthday bash. If it means anything, I'll see you there. I look forward to meeting fellow fans and having a blast in NYC.

Hey, gang. Thanks for posting that you are excited. I am looking forward myself! Please do write with any questions or to see if I can help. I do want as many CBN'ers as possible to attend and want to stack the place with 'em! :)

Write me soon if you are even considering attending and I'll get you updated. About five more signed on this week and I want to limit the number of attendees to keep everyone well Bonded.

Remember, we have registration available also for local folks wishing to attend but not needing a hotel stay at the Travel Inn. Please drop me a line at ms@007Forever.com

Oh, and I did find the Fillet of Soul and some other groovy places recently with Janine's help. Things are going well indeed for August. Don't take my word for it, come join us! -Matt

Things have shaped up nicely.

The crew I'm traveling with have ourselves set up with a hotel and airfare.

Matt should have our registration fees by Friday. As to the Thursday festivities, I may have other plans but Flicka and I will certainly be there for the Friday pool side meet & greet and then the entire "Bryce's 7" crew will be at Sardi's later on.

Should be fun.

The ladies are already shopping for the appropriate gowns/dresses/suits for Saturday. The gents won't look too bad either. :)

So, let's have a sound off (at present) of which CBn'ers will be attending.

Bryce and Flicka (+5)

Anyone else?

I'm going to try to be there. I live locally so it's just a matter of funding non-hotel registration, which shouldn't be hard. There's no info up on 007 Forever. Any news?

Hey Kara... I don't think that Matt has the time to update 007 Forever anymore. But all the info on this BCW8 can be found here on CBn :)

This representative from Station C Canada will be there.

The mother also insists on tagging along, for reasons unbeknownst to me. She doesn't even like Bond, fer crissakes. Although she does like Sean Connery and the hope that he will make an appearance.

I'm in the same boat as Kara, I live too close for hotels (we'd likely only be there for a day or so). Would any special pricing and/or registration issues come about?

Johnboy, I'd recommend shooting Matt and e-mail (info@007Forever.com) and asking him about that as I'm not sure what he'd be able to arrange. Were you thinking of just being there for a day, if so it looks like Saturday is the fullest day, plus the annual Costume/Casino Bash is that night.

Ok, so here's a list of CBn-ers who will be in attendance so far. This is so exciting! I can't wait to meet all of you. Anyone else?(* means will be there Thursday Night, anyone else?)

Also, last I heard Greg Goodman the big wig over at Univex will be in attendance as well. :)

Just got an email from Matt confirming he received my registration fees.

Flicka is out shopping as I type - she called with a quick question "Crimson satin or midnight blue velvet?" I told her both would do.

So, fees, hotel, airfare - all covered.

That just leaves spending money, some dinner reservations and theater tickets.

*checks Q Branch field equipment*

*checks Brioni tux*

*checks flask*

Only about six weeks to go.

Should be grand. :)

I hope you'll be able to manage it, Macca. It would be cool to see you again and actually get to chat instead of just looking at each other through the window of a ship's lounge (BCW6). lol :)

Very cool! Finalized a few details and am really looking forward to seeing the "usual suspects" from BCW's past and the CBn'ers I "know" but haven't met.

During the inevitable photo shoot, I'm sure we'll get more than a few CBn group pics. Also, I have yet to double-check with him, but I believe Paladin and his wife (the lovely Miss Case) will also be attending - He lurks more than posts on CBn under paladin9. He supposed to be out here in LA next week for a visit, so I'm sure between the range, restaurants and keeping Flicka from climbing anything, we'll talk shop.

Thanks for putting up the master list Athena, :)

Still unclear on which days I will be there (if at all). Best bets would be either Saturday or Sunday. I should have a better if not definite idea by tomorrow (the parents have to talk it over tomorrow for confirmation and such). :)

Hope you make it Johnboy007.

Not that it may help with your parental negotiations, but the BCW crowd is a very cool one and we take care of our own. Much like CBn, we've never left anyone "in the field" yet....

Well...There's always a first time...

I'm so jealous. I'm going to New York for Labor Day weekend, and I'm going to miss all of you. It sounds like a great trip and I hope everyone has a good time.

Hopefully, someone will post the "surprises" that Matt has in store so I can stroll by and check out the Cbn aftermath.
