Traditionally everyone traveling from out of town gets together Friday night at the Savory Grille. Its a very nice restaurant with a screened in porch area. I need to make reservations well in advance for a group our size, so I need a head count. Who wants to join us?

Restaurant URL is. http://savorygrille.com/

We can't drive up until Friday night, so we'll have to pass on this (again) :-(

I can attest to the savory grille being a good restaurant. I've eaten there at the last two ECG's and the food is fresh, and cooked to perfection. I might add that they will make special orders also as my wife wanted vegi only last year and they came up with something even a meat eater would love. Oh my wife isn't normally a vegi eater just had a craving. I won't make it this year and will miss the Friday night dinner fore sure. I will miss you guys this year and perhaps next if still here I will make it.

It's weather and work dependent for me. This year it will be a bike trip (the sissy motorized variety) Best case I'm there on Friday but no promises until we get some kind of forecast.

Uhhh, at dinner?

If you're asking if there will be another "full auto" demonstration, I would expect so :) LOL, Josh and I are at the national NRA convention in Pittsburgh right now :wink: Might even be a field trip to Josh's homemade range at his home if anyone is really interested (about 10 minutes away)

So, should I assume no Friday night get together this year?

If all goes according to plan I expect to be there Friday. If I run into weather I may not make it until Saturday. It's all up to the weather. 825 mile ride.

If you had one of these weather would not be an issue!

I have a tour pac (trunk) and a passenger seat with sissy bar that pops on and off. Got to put the knives and guns somewhere!

Windshield pops on and off also.

You are going to be a rolling armory. Pity the fool who cuts you off.

Not as many as last time!

I'll probably bring the Masamoto suji and the Mizuno honyakis. I'd bring my Itou if I thought I could sell it.

So... I guess no reservations. If Salty makes it Friday, we'll take our chances somewhere.....

We are likely going to make it, Warren.

Not worried if we just have to take out chances.

Warren,

did we get any numbers for the Friday night? If it isn't looking like a group are getting together perhaps we'll just skip the motel cost and travel down Saturday morning. My son has a chance to do a soccer tryout that evening too and though there are other opportunities we'll take that one if there's no gathering.

Let me know your thoughts.

Cheers!

Hi Moogi :) There din't seem to be much interest this year in Friday night. I expect Eldon will be here, but everyone else was non-commital, so I didn't make any reservations. I'd guess Ian can make the tryout :)

Well Saturday will be fabulous of that I am certain. We are looking forward to seeing the familiar faces and Iain will bring a swimming costume this time :)

Yes Warren I'll be there! Just started on my packing, so I will make it on time. See you Friday!!

Cheers!!!....
