    Re: Navigation gathering: Mystic, Spring 2010

    This is a belated reply to your message about a possible return to
    Mystic (or somewhere else) for a gathering of Nav List members.  I
    found the last two meetings to be extremely interesting, informative
    and enjoyable, and well worthwhile making the trip.  Please count me in.
