"Yeah,but only if he shaves and puts on a tie ! " It seems the beer foam on the fur gave impressions of a rabies outbreak and we have to think about what the other Customers' might think. The tie gives the squirrel some validity in the business world and he may appear as a Yuengling Beer Distributor looking to outfit the Wood and Beer place with a new tap system!...I'm just sayin'..... :flush:

Please consider these informal meeting minutes of the 1st CT Coal Meet n' Great.

Attendees:

*CoaledSweat, our esteemed CT Moderator
* Spiker, from the Ocean State
* Easy Ray, our "storyteller" and photographer
* Swifty, EasyRay's coal buring cohort who hates computers
*Jim D, from Tauton with his Boiler and family
* Ray, a member of JimD's family
*Adam, JimD's grandson
*Blackrock,from the shore, and our other photographer
*Uglysquirrel

JimD arrived around 11:40 am with a trailer & proceeded to load the boiler with rice, some of it a bit frozen since it was -4 the night before. His family jumped into action, doing this and that to start the stove. It was clearly evident that Jimd trained them well. There was a demonstration of a built in CO feature that shut off power if there was a CO alarm. Regarding my pesky questions on certification for a building dept, Ray indicated that the boiler has all the required certifications (UL was one of several) and I believe a pressure vessel certification that I just cannot remember. He may want to post these on his website whose internet location was posted a few days ago in this topic. Soon the boiler's radiator started to give off heat which Coaled Sweat tended to take command of by being in the trailer most of the time. Most of the time the attendees pretty much stood in the parking lot and shot the :flush: For the benefit of Ugly, we all had name tags. Easy Ray and Blackrock took pictures.

At 1 pm we retired to the Wood n' Tap, our special room reserved ( Management knew who WE were) . Drinks were raised (mostly pepsi's :pepsi:) to celebrate the 1st Meeting, Jimd was presented with one of Freddy's (Maine) Coal bumper stickers for travelling the greatest distance (~130 miles) to the 'greet. Another sticker was randomly drawn by an understanding waitress which Adam won.

Not much more to say but there were a lot of laughs and connections made beyond electronic media.

On behalf of all of us there, we would really like to thank Jimd for the hospitality offered, we really appreciated his presence & his quiet demeanor to make this an (especially) special event of the CT Forum.

Everything pretty much ended at 3 or so, the time went so fast.

And least not we forget that in due time there will likely be the 2nd CT Meet and Greet.

Also, thanks to the Mayor of the Forum for simply making this forum possible. :clap:

Others welcome to chime in if I missed anything, etc.

If you are going to do one of these meet and greets in the future, a consideration should be given to visit Frank Pepe's on Buckland Hills Drive in Manchester. After all, they cook with anthracite!
