Quick report from Greensboro.? Arrivals for Cirque seemed a little slow mid-afternoon Thursday compared to previous years, but by late evening, the usual suspects were mostly here.? Dale's shop was a hubbub of afternoon activity.? Gianni Pergolizzi and his elves were getting things ready for the auction.? Later, about 25 folks met at Brixx, the pizza joint within walking distance of the Battleground Inn.? Service was just slow enough to make conversation interesting--in other words, we weren't rushed.? Between the beer at Brixx and wine at the Battleground Inn, the group was very "animated" by 10 PM in the lobby and parking lot.? Good bike talk and nice to see friends.? I would say nice to see "old" friends, but then people may be offended, even though most of them are "old".? Lou Deeter, reporting from Greensboro NC USA, temporarily displaced from Orlando FL.
