Meeting of the Old Timers at the National
« on: June 15, 2019, 07:51:25 pm »
I was looking over the attendee list and was pleasantly surprised by how many long time members of Cog will be attending this years National.

I remember when we where younger, thinner and faster!!!!

We should plan a get together one evening at the National.

Any thoughts?
It would have to be early, as the old timers go to bed early  ;)

How do you quantify who joins in:
   { COG numbers under 50, or 100, or 500, or 5,000, or ???  }

NOTE: I know I'm not nearly as old as Guy Young  :nananana:, but I am old, and only at 19 years in the COG...

Heck, that includes me too, and probably about 1/2 the club:rotflmao:
But, if COGnosticator is eligible, my numbers about 300 lower than his and I'm better lookin'..

But, j prolly means the first group in the club? #200 and below?
If so, I'm fine with that..

Ride safe, Ted.

If Jen is crashin' so am I.  Besides, I'll have the Margaritas.  (that's usually good for free entry anywhere COGgers are found even if my number's too high
)

Well, we could try.  My plan has been to fly to PA and that meant no toting a guitar.  But since the missus is coming with me, after she crunched all the numbers it appears we'll be driving instead of flying.  :-X      Thus, I CAN bring the Margarita machine and even a geetar if desired.  However, our venue won't have a stage fer the band I'm told.  We'd be werkin from the floor.  But I've groveled in worser places I'm sure.

fyi; "The" COG BAND err sang from the floor the first time the infamous group was introduced at a National.
    NOTE: It's easier to run from the floor if'n the need arises,,, "and" most of "the BAND" will be there anyway.

At least "The COG Band" now has a name...

I'm really trying hard to leave that CCCOCS thingy alone.
 
I had thought maybe "Rev n da Revenuers"... or "Hell's Strangels"... or "So So Company"... or "Kipass & the K-Rocks"... or "Gray Floyd"... or "the Arthur-Rhythmics"... or the "Blew By-You Crew"... or "Da Faster Pastor Disaster"... or the "Froggy Bottom Bois"... or the "Zee Gees"... or "The Passed and the Spurious" (I kinda like that one)... or  "ZG Flop"... or "Pre-Madonna"... or "AeroStich"... or "Oil, Tar, & Other Cross Threads"... or "Diaper Dan and the Incontinentals"... or ... well, you get the idea.  But CCCOCS might be just a little bit edgy, donchathink?   :-X

Yea, CCCOCS might be "just" a bit iffy.  :truce:

I honestly didn't think about the acronym until after I posted and tried to pronounce it.   :-[
     But, ya gotta admit, it kinda fits the band..  :singing:

So, as usual;  I'll blame it on someone else.   :great:
                      Clearly,,, It's all Jim and Eddie's fault.
                                         They made me do it...
<sly grin>  :rotflmao:
                       PS: Even though their part of the original COG Band, they won't be there to sing with us.  :o
                              {ie; They won't be there to defend themselves}  :nananana:

Ok, I can't help myself. How about something simple like COG band singer?  {COGbs}   :rotflmao:

Ride safe, Ted

It wouldn't be me because my oldest is 2008. The OTHER part of your challenge is just cruel and unusual punishment.  :D
