Looking forward to a Packers playoff game on the beach? GO PACK GO!!!
Got to watch one playoff game when we were at CTI would love a repeat at CSA! And you are Packers fans???
Have bled green and gold since the days of the Majik Man. My dad used to live in Fox Point. When I was there, the Pack got eliminated by the Giants 2 days before I got there. What a way to start a holiday.
That would bite. When we were at CTI the game was the night we arrived and the Packers beat Atlanta. We had a group of about 20 Packers fans in the game room. Plus the airport was full of green and gold. Someone even asked if they had planes full of Packers fans. It was a great way to start the vacation!
Happy to say we will be there around that time too. We arrive on your Anniversary, Gary and Sheri!
Can't believe we booked a trip this far in advance. Not like us. :o)

Sorry, we're not really poker players. Have been known to watch the tournaments on TV, lol.
Use to play euchre but it's been years.....:)
Holly and I play euchre as well. Maybe we'll meet up fora few games
Could possibly squeeze in a game :o). We're a bit rusty. It's our first time to CSA so we may not leave our loungers on the beach, lol.
We also want to get a group together to do the "One Love" pub crawl.

Hey DebnAl, I just booked the One Love Bus tour for January 16 Thursday. We have a group of 12 going. Lenbert's e-mail said he had another group of 15 from a different resort for that day also. He said he could run both groups together or separately. Not sure what that means but if you want to jump in with us just e-mail Lenbert for the 16th.

Many will just have to stand in that case, or sit on the lap of their significant other. :) I will email him to put our names on the CSA list. You can decide if we should be a separate group from the others. Depends on how big the CSA #'s get...
This is for anyone at CSA at this time. The more the merrier. I was hoping to have a bus full of CSA people but not sure that will happen. Maybe if we get enough to sign up it will be. Otherwise I am fine squishing.

We are coming home January 25-February 5, so that is 11 nights for us, which is one more day than we have been doing. I hope that you and Todge are doing well. We just mailed in our passports for renewal because they were set to expire in April and our travel agent told us that they need to be good for 6 months after our visit.
We are from Buffalo, New York and will be looking forward to watching the Super Bowl on the beach at CSA!
Hi Judy. GREAT to see you're on the board. Congrats to you & Bob. This will be your longest stay ever, right? I made a mistake-we're only staying 14 nights. Traveling on Super Bowl Sunday but should be back in the states for the 2nd half. Since the Skins don't have a shot :( it's OK. FYI...Farmer's Alamac is predicting a bizzard in the Northeast that weekend so who knows!! We'd rather wait it out in Negril then get stuck at the airport!. Looking forward to seeing you & Bob. Who knows, we may even leave our beach chairs for a snorkeling trip w/you! LOL! Can't wait to catch up on things! HAPPY Holidays to you & Bob! See you on the beach! Cindy
