End of Winter Meet & Greet Lunch March 3 [Seymour CT]
« on: January 15, 2018, 03:27:21 pm »
March 3 12pm - 4pm
A second annual activity due to the positive feedback last year. Weather depending you can ride or drive - no judging here. :great: There should be enough room to bring the SO or entire family. No fee - pay for your own food and beverages. View event details and please REGISTER ON THE COG WEBSITE calendar so we have an approximate headcount to provide the restaurant.

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

 We enjoyed this event last year. I for sure be able to travel again by then so maybe we will show up. I'll speak with the better half when she gets home shortly. I wouldn't mind attending again.

Ok we're in. I registered the wife and myself. My daughter should be home that weekend and probably will come but I didn't register her. There was no guest option without filling out all sorts of information, so she's a probably, but not counted on the official tally.

It was a great time last year! I certainly hope I can return this March. I took on some additional responsibilities  :-[ and am still discovering their translation to my calendar. Damn- where is my winning lottery ticket?  >:(

We will try to make it. Won't be sure for a couple of weeks. As I remember it from last year they had a good selection of tap craft beers and good food.

We're hoping to see some new faces mixed in with the old this year.  For incentive... I will be reaching into the raffle prize box and will have at least one item to give away - maybe more depending on the size of the group.

Jury's still out here.  If I do attend will probably be solo.  My daughter is attending pre-college courses on Saturdays at SVU in Manhattan so we prefer one of us be local.  We'll see how it plats out. :great:

Outstanding! We do not get to see enough of Mrs. Terry. Glad to hear she will be there.

Really, this is great 'cause we do not get to see you folks from 'the west' all that much.

?? My forecast (weather underground) is calling for no precipitation and temps. reaching into the mid- 40's. Lots of rain on Friday but again too warm to snow (high 30s).

North and west might get a hit but us coastal folks look to be just getting a rain and wind event.  Should blow through by Sat am.

The dam up north of the restaurant may have the spillway open because of all the precipitation. If your coming down rt 34 from 84 once you come upon the dam you can go straight instead of going left onto the dam and go down and get a good vantage point to see across the river at the spillway. Again I don't know if the spillway will be open, so another vantage point is right after you get over the dam there is a wide breakdown lane on the right that gives a good viewing of the dam runoff right below the roadway.
See you folks tomorrow.

gMitch (Greg), How much snow do you guys have so far up in northeast corner of CT? There talking a possibility of a foot or more. Diz, your a little more south in southern Litchfield county, hope you make it too.
We haven't been able to ride to this event yet, I think someone rode last year in the cold.
See you folks tomorrow.

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.

Well we got about an inch of ice/snow/slush this morning before changing back over to rain and of course the addition of high winds. They said it was about 2 inches of rain by the time it ends, so thankfully it isn't all snow like just north and west of us. But So far it does look good for us being there. As I mentioned before, it will be three of us since my young'un is home for a visit. Looking forward to seeing folks. That meat lovers pizza  was pretty good last year. I just might go for that again.

Wish we could make it but we have a good excuse. You see we were supposed to pick up Jr's new (to him) 2015 Versys 1000 today but the weather had different plans. So we're picking it up tomorrow. Got a great deal on it. 22,000 miles for 7,800 and they gave him 4k for his 650. See everyone at the Spring Fling!

I washed and waxed the bike on Thursday hoping to ride on Saturday but I guess I'll have to drive instead.  Looking forward to seeing some friendly faces I haven't seen in a while.  Put me down for 2, I'm coming alone.  :))   The Mrs. has to babysit the grandson.

We had wild weather but thankfully only a couple of icy inches to make things slippery. See you there!
