    A ha. Great idea! Is there an award system? ;)

    Impromptu setups are a lot of fun. Coordinating food makes for more of a challenge.

    I found it's easier to separate the two - make s0me contacts then go get some food. But if anyone is willing to try both, I am game!

    Sure. But not so much in the summer. Oklahoma heat isn't Phoenix heat, but it's more than enough to encourage picnicking in the fall. :)

    Yes I agree completely! Eating while trying to work CW just does not work, regardless of whether at home or in a park!
