I have ballgames Tues and Thurs. Sorry I missed you Claud.

On another note, Lynnwood as well as other spots should be tapping Big Boss's Oktoberfest Pumpkin. Soooo good.

But, who will be drinking w/ Alex? I have posted one too many times that I would attend and then got sidetracked. I am now in Pwash mode. If I show, I'm there, and if I don't, I ain't.


LOL. Yeah forgot to even check about this.

Mr. Green

Yeah I suck at it but you guys never come anyway..............

How about this, everyone decide on one location for the first Tuesday every month that is centrally located for everyone? We will do it at that one place, all of the time unless something special occurs. Fair enough?

We need to meet at 6:30 pm so members can look at other members cars and talk cars a bit before food/beverages. We are all centrally located in the Triangle. So is the MINI club and they go somewhere new every month. We met at the Manchester Grill last month in a joint meet with local BMWCCA. We had more people attending than they did. They always meet there, but we have usually done better.
Enigmatic Dream picked the wing place in Cary. Lets let him post it up for next month and see how it goes. We need more excitement to draw folks and the best we can do is a decent draft selection and food for now. Think about it--If I had seen Ivan last night and the place was a bit better, we would have had a decent time.
There are a bunch of good places. The PR, Crabtree Tavern, Village Ale House, Raleigh Times, City Beverage in Durham, Flying Saucer etc.

We have had this conversation before. There are never enough people in attendance regardless of the location....

Same place, same time every month so there are no questions. If you can come great, if not so be it. Love you guys either way

I like this idea. Somewhere with a nice large parking lot as well is nice. McGregor draft house in Cary has a huge lot, we've had meets there before and its easy to get to as its right off the highway.

Turnout is so small that really cool members with a house and no wife or a cool wife could take turns hosting the meets. Everyone could bring beer and/or food and we could make it a party instead of a bunch of dudes crammed around a table in a noisy restaurant.

I'd offer up my place but I don't have a house and if I did no one would come out to Carrboro.

You guys do not seem to understand what Alex is saying. It's first Tuesday each month, 7:30 pm and Lynnwood Grill for our meets. You can attend or not.
Personally, If we only used one place and did not change, I would have voted Crabtree Tavern. Nice parking lot, Not a lot of business--we have always been able to get a big table. Food is better than Lynwood--Tuesday is "wing" night and NC drafts are on special.

Lynnwood location is decent but it's routinely stuffed beyond capacity with southern gems who look like stars of the TV spinoff "Raleigh Shore"

I'm pretty sure the people have spoken after the turnout earlier this week.

Doesnt have to be Lynwood, anywhere is fine. If everyone can agree on Crabtree Tavern that would be great.

First Tuedays Crabtree Tavern 7:30, any disputes?
