    I plan on attending Verona this yr with 8 other guys provided the weather cooperates. Any idea how long it takes to get there from the Troy or Albany area? It's about 2 hrs to Albany so I am thinking 4 1/2 hrs total?

    In good driving conditions it is 90-95 minutes to Verona exit 34 from Albany on I 90 (NYS Thruway). From Exit 34 take a right, to Rt 31 light, Rt to VVS school, about 5 minutes.
    The applications and topics schedule can be found at Cornell Maple http://maple.dnr.cornell.edu/. It still looks like the topic list is not fully finalized. However rest assured the final list will be a good one as it has the past 14 years, number 15 should be a winner too. The VVS FFA does a fantastic job running this event. The deadline is Dec 10 postmark this year.

    Thanks flats and flatlander. The other guys will appreciate not having to leave before 3 a.m.
    We are not registering early just in case of inclement weather. Basically it means we are on our own for lunch, correct? Hopefully it isn't a big problem.
    Thanks for the info
