Winter Social (RI) Sat., 1 Feb. 2014 4:00 PM
« on: January 05, 2014, 11:18:59 pm »
Come on out and join us for a great time at our first Winter Social. We have reserved the game room of The Olde Theater Diner for this event. Dinner will be from the full menu of the restaurant and they have a full bar. For anyone wanting to stay overnight, there are several local hotels along with prices listed on the sign- up page.

This is a great restaurant serving both pizza as well as a regular full menu. Large portions, low prices and a great setting.

Here is a link to the calendar page. to sign up for the event.

I want full credit for NOT asking what might 'pop up' and what you and Susan might do about it if it did....  :rotflmao:

Great to hear you folks are going to attend.

Well dip me in sheep dip and call me dodo.....

Through an odd circumstance (a member booked a hotel and got a special rate, then the hotel passed that rate on to the entire group) we have a discounted rate for the La Quinta Inn in Coventry, RI. The rate is $64 instead of the standard $72. To get the rate, call them to book the reservation and mention Concours Owners Group, and the discounted reservations must be made by 25 January.

I will post this info to the calendar page as well.

C'mon people, better sign up for this one. You don't want to miss what will undoubtedly be the greatest COG function ever, on this date, in RI!

I do not know if this is by design or if an oversight. But the link to the event page doesn't work unless you are logged into COGMOS.

Beats me? It is merely a link to the event page; if one has to be logged into COGMOS to have the link work I am unaware of that and have no control over it that I know of.

If anyone is trying to register for this event, and obviously who would NOT be trying  ;D, let me know if you have any problems and we will work around them. Besides, registration is not necessary to attend, merely a way for us to get an approximate attendee count for the restaurant.

I had someone else try it and you are right- it requires anyone looking to sign in. The link also is slightly different from a non- logged in browser so I grabbed that one and pasted it.... and now it seems to work and I have no idea why.

Thanks for the 'heads up'.

Thanks Cap'n Bob for pointing that out and to Brian for getting it corrected. Now it's time
for everyone to sign up so we can get this party started.

There are some other people coming who did not sign up, at least not yet. I heard from them through e-mail. But the fact that I put a bad link in the initial post probably didn't help :-(   It actually was not a 'bad' like but it only worked for those signed into the COG website, as Bob mentioned. Going to the exact same place from the calendar but not being signed in gets to the exact same place but it has a slightly different URL. I do not know why that is but I simply used the URL that is given to browsers if they are not signed and all is well- go figure?

Just go easy folks, no need to be in a panic. Que up and sign up in an orderly fashion, no need to shove and push to the front of the line- plenty of room for everyone.  :rotflmao: Seriously, it is a big room and I can expand on the number of slots if needed.

Absolutely not, everyone is welcome at this event. In fact, it would be a great way for you to meet a few members that normally might not make a lot of events here due to distance. By all means, come on along and meet a handful of the local COG folk: great people, every last one of them.

And we'll tell ya' where the dipstick is..... oh, yes!  :rotflmao:

Pat and Sher will be there too; they host the Tech. day event in May and Pat is very well versed in C-10's so it would be great for you two to chat and you find out about some of the things that get done on Tech day where there will be quite a few very knowledgeable people to help, guide and heckle. A huge amount of great info. and fantastic help available to service / maintain / repair / farkle your bike on Tech day.

Looking forward to meeting you folks!
Brian

Regretfully, Susan and I are going to have to cancel.  :'( we are hosting a Super Bowl party and it's kinda snowballed into a big thing. We'll catch up with everyone soon. Have fun.

Sorry
Laurel and I will not be able to attend.
we are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Tech weekend or sooner.
Of course that depends on the snow melting up here, it's -35C up here with strong winds :(
