E Kolk! So what if you were out of the country. You still are over due for an ace and probably owe ace beer from an overseas ace that you didn't even tell us about! I know its breaking tradition; but, these obscure holidays called Christmas and New Year's eve interfered with our Tuesday schedule. I thought we should return to our regularly scheduled programs; but, Fred does not want to skip playing at Old Pike. He wants to shake things up and play Old Pike this Tuesday January 8th and then the Old Pikers will go to Swope next week.
