If memory serves, this will be the first time in a while, if ever, it has been done on the west coast. I can hardly wait.
Exciting the Sky Dweller drawing will be done at the GTG!

That is great. Items do not need to be Rolex. Watch related is nice!

Well, now I really have to go! It looks like my husband and I and our little one are leaning towards making it. We may be late. We're chasing the kiddo's nap schedule.

Not sure if anyone is keeping track of who is going or not. I originally was free and said I was coming but I’ll be out of town. Have a great time everyone. I was looking forward to meeting a lot of people and seeing some great watches. I’ll try for the next one.

I will be there possibly with my wife. Not sure if I needed to let anyone know. Looking forward to seeing some nice watches and I will be bringing some Cuban cigars for the giveaway if that’s allowed.

Take care everyone.

Cubans are always welcome!

I will make a badge for you, Hector. If your wife is coming, PM me her first name and I will get her a badge.

Parking

The later in the day it gets, the more difficult parking becomes. Here is the closest City Public Parking. The first two hours are free.

http://www.beverlyhills.org/departme...ysouth/web.jsp

More Info:

http://www.beverlyhills.org/cbhfiles...ide10-2012.pdf

There is Valet Parking attached to the restuarant, it fills up fast. The first hour was free, previously, after that they charge. It is not owned by the restuarant.

I believe this was the first time the numbers were drawn on the West Coast. This was a lot of work and a lot of fun!

We had a our biggest crowd at the BH GTG and the largest lot of Swag we have ever had!

Thanks again to the Donors!

I hope everyone had a good time! We must have left an impression over the years at the South Beverly Gril, because they recognized us and knew who we are! Once again, the food and the service was excellent!

Thank you all for attending!
