Unfortunately, I am not going to make this one. Lost power last night and cannot leave the house with the generator running, and will not leave it without power so I have to skip on this one. Also lost both phone and 'Net connection so could not even check in and see that this was still on.

Very disappointing for me though because this is a pretty rare opportunity of me to see the 'western' NE folks that are a bit further away than the NE folks to our north. I was very much looking forward to seeing you folks.

Hopefully Steve or someone will host another social meet in that general area. That area is about 2 hours west for us but close enough for a lot of the western CT, MA and quite a few of the NY folks to attend and as I said, we just do not happen to get out that way very often. Especially riding is a..... (chokes on the word).... car. :-(

Hope it went well and you people had a good time. Maybe someone gave 'The Cat Joke' a shot but hey, the part that makes the joke work at all is Andrea and I know she was not there so....

So far the snow has been held off to the north and west. The forecast is calling for all rain by the restaurant and surrounding areas. The rain is suppose to end by midnight, but it will still be windy. I'm hopeful this will dry the roads a bit by the time folks depart from home. 

The event is running on schedule. See you there.

Thanks Steve for putting this together. Two bikes in the parking lot, good food, good beer, and great people= great time. Andrea and Brian, were looking forward to seeing you guys, hope everything worked out for you. No one had the guts to try and pull off the cat joke.

We had a great time! So good to see everyone! All the talk about bike trips made me anxious as mud season is just outside the garage door and Connie just gets to sit and idle....   >:(  Thanks Steve for hosting!

Lunch provided a new hashtag for passengers, hope Terry lets Mrs. Terry read her book  ;D

The Meet & Greet was a great time, with 16 people attending, coming from CT, NY, and NJ. The Connecticut attendees came from the north, central, and southern parts of eastern CT. From NY, Staten Staten Island, the Bronx, and Walkill were represented. One member attended from Little Ferry, NJ.

The weather turned out better than the previous day, and I anticipated we might get some walk-in attendees. The restaurant was very accommodating and set up extra seating when I mentioned there was a possibility we might get some additional walk-in participants. 

We mingled and chatted for a couple of hours noshing on a nicely assorted crudites platter of meats, cheeses, crackers, vegetables and dips. A sorts of tasty beverages were available. I decided to give away a couple of small trinkets from the NE Area box o prizes.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."
