Looks like we have a quorum especially after our esteemed moderator said yeah!
We had a nice time at the Rocky Hill, CT Wood n' Tap which seems fairly located to all, right off I-91. They provided a private room that likely promoted a lot of frequent laughing and they had two waitresses with timely service.
Dates: Hummmm, Saturday November 5th or Saturday November 12th seem far enough away from Thanksgiving so no one will get caught up in Turkey related family events. Both dates are open at the 'Tap's back room though I need to get back to them in a few days with a date selection. This timeframe was chosen since after Turkey day they are a lot more family and work parties are going on, suggesting less Coalies will attend, plus more chance of a snow date requirement.
1)We'll slam down a proposal of Nov 5th or Nov 12 and see if anyone cannot make it on one of those dates. Please reply if you CANNOT make one of those dates in the next few days as we really want everyone there (that is one difficult part of all this)
2) Lets continue the Roll Call as we'll need to know if the Police need to control the coal related traffic jam.
Again, regardless of the date chosen hopefully we all can get together and meet and see many new faces.
One last thing...all States are invited! I think last year we had three states attending. Will we do 4?
