    New England B.S. session?

    Any interest in a casual get-together for drinks, food and bench racing? We haven't done one in a few years...was it Worcester where we once all met for tacos and beers?

    New England BS

    Sounds like a great idea, Bob. If we have it in the next couple of weeks i'll drive the Kadett. I'm 20 minutes from Worcester.

    BTW, does anyone know who owns the rally-prepared GT that sits in Millbury?

    Anybody heard from Walter lately? I spoke to Travis the other day, he had mentioned he'd like to sit down and have a beer and BS a bit. We could probably get Quagmire and Rick there too.

    Gary, do you have any other (better) suggestions for a meeting place? Maybe near Providence? I only mentioned Worcester since we met there once before.

    The local watering hole that I frequented (Bugaboo Creek) abruptly closed its doors last week. There are several chain restaurants near interstate 95/195 in the Providence area.

    The one we went to in Worcester closed a few years back (shortly after our last meeting...) IIRC we picked that area cuz it was a central location for the people who came.

    Sadly it's a common occurance these days. A lot of places are closing down even in well-to-do areas.

    Got a list of places we can vote on maybe?

    No problem. I was wondering how you were going to do that in a weekend, 2200 miles round trip in 2 days.:banghead: I'm a lot closer and it is tempting, but I think I will pass too.

    That place looks pretty awesome, sounds like a plan!

    So...when is everyone available? Dec 5th-10th are out for me, otherwise pretty much anything works.

    Saturday or Sunday early afternoon maybe?

    Sounds like the racing could be demolition derby style.
    If your thinking about school buses with trailers I might be game.

    So, the holidays are here and things are hectic. I haven't heard any suggestions on a particular weekend to meet yet. Some possibilities below, we need to pick a date and get a head count I guess.

    Saturday Dec 4th. (Sunday not an option for me)

    Saturday Dec. 11th, or Sunday Dec. 12th

    Saturday Dec. 18th, or Sunday Dec. 19th

    Or do we wait until January?
