I can't yet outright promise, but this year I'll actually be staying somewhere 
that's only about 2 hours away and I am planning to try to attend. (Very likely,
but not certain yet). Assuming I can make it, I'll happily be an HPRite, if only
so I can hang out with the cool kids.

In answer to the other questions in case it becomes relevant: either XFat or
XXFat (I fit fine into XL, but often get XXL just because). I tend to lean Royal Purple
or Blue for shirt color, and I like pocketses.

This sounds great to me, assuming I can make it - I'm in if I'm there!
