  1. Does anyone have anymore information about this weekend? I haven't ever received a invitation. Brandon called our house and left a message for my husband, who was never a Sammy. I called back and left a message saying I'd like more information and also emailed him...never heard from him or anyone. I would love to be there but at this point don't think it will happen.
