yeah, we pulled up the menu for the chelsea, and thought it was a bit too expensive.

here's a link for Capt. Ratty's:

Count us in. We will most likely meet you guys at Captain Ratty?s. If there is anyone from the Jacksonville area interested in meeting and convoying up to New Bern let me know. Not too many twisties but we might be able to work something in that is a little scenic.

Hi all!
The reservation has been made and we are good to go!

For those of you meeting us in new bern:
Let's park at Union Point Park. There are some nice spots for public parking and it'd be a great place to take some pics. We'll be arriving close to 6:00 or a little after. The address is: 202 Middle St, New Bern, NC.
Also, there is construction that has overtaken Broad Street, so if your GPS has you going that way, you should plan an alternate street to downtown.

For those meeting us in Greenville to drive together:
Be ready to leave from the Carmike on Firetower at 5:00.
The address is: 1685 E Fire Tower Rd, Greenville, NC.

Sorry guys!

I took Friday off to check out Wake Forest and then headed to MINIpalooza. Got home to a couple emails from my peers informing me of make up tests, assignments, etc. We will plan for next month?

ah man! sorry BJ! (and everyone else!)
i was afraid that would happen...
it would have been nice to meet you guys and have a fun drive!

popsmini
September 27th, 2009, 08:12 PM
Will be at the Dragon 23-25 Oct.
Early Oct would be ok with me.

kelyparker
September 30th, 2009, 09:48 PM
so, for rescheduling -

does a Sunday afternoon work best for everyone?
or how about a Friday after work?
i'm thinking the weekend of Oct. 16/18.

what say ye?

MYTMINI!

Sunday afternoon works for us as long as our football teams are not playing...smile. Fridays would be probably be better, but it will start getting dark earlier, especially after the time change. We'll go with the group, which ever works out for the most participation.

Cheers!

MYTMINI!

Awesome idea! Tony, I don?t need anything as big as a mini but if you can squeeze them in, a set of factory GP Recaro seats would be great!:ms_thumbsup:

Ok, you Easterners ... the Triangle chapter is headed to BBQ this Friday night, doesn't appear -- from the lack of posts -- that any of you will be joining us, SOOOO ... I'm proposing we do a "joint" chapter event to Wilson in a few weeks ... we'll have to post a poll or something to determine if we are doing Bills, or Parkers, or perhaps we'll do lunch at one and dinner at the other??

Looking at weekends -- since that's when you usually meet -- a couple of dates to throw out and we'll try and pick the one that works for the most people in both clubs .. what do you say?

Trying to avoid the holidays, but looking at Nov/Dec since there's so much going on in Oct .. Saturdays better? Or Sundays?

Nov 14 / 15?
Nov 21 / 22?
Dec 5 / 6?

What do you think?

BBQ sounds good to me.
Might be fun to meet some of the other guys/gals

I love BBQ! If it is going to be an all day event I would like to see it be on a Saturday. Unavailable on the Nov 14-15, but the other dates sound promising.

I second the vote for an all-day Saturday... or a few hours around lunchtime at least.

Down east folk should take the 13th off, head up to VIR for the holiday laps, then head on up to Blacksburg for the event on the 14th. A long weekend of motoring sweetness!

I am trying to see if i can DRUM up some interest from our group as well. MAYBE, we can meet everyone in Floyd for lunch and then either go with all of you part way home or just go our separate ways? I am up for it. If i end up being the only one, i'll come to Eden and drive up with everyone.
