Looking to have a Wikes Barre meet
« on: February 20, 2008, 10:02:58 AM »
Would anyone be interested in making the trip up to the Wilkes Barre Pa area? I am talking to The folks at Smokey Bones and I would like to plan a lunch meet on April 13 from 11am-? but they would like an idea of how many people to expect. They don't reserve tables but can seat patrons in other sections till they fill up. The day will be a Sunday because they arn't as busy.  I might be able to get a parking area set aside for us. Once I get an idea of how many would be able to make it I can talk to the manager more.

Sorry :curley: does not always pay attention.   :butterfly:

I will be interested...  But I think another month may be a good idea too.  :hide:
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

Would April 6th or May 11th be better?  I really need to know so I can start setting things up.

I am thinking that May may be a better date because the weather should permit bringing out the car!? O0

Lets see what everyone else thinks?   :clap:

I agree with May being nicer :afto2: but don't a lot of the car shows start in May :clap:. Around here they don't start till July but I know other areas are more car orientated :D . If anyone has a car show in May let me know the dates and I can schedule this between them.  I will bump this thread for a couple of weeks (till late March) to keep it open and get the maximum amount of input I can. If it works out I would like to make it an annual meet.

Sound like a good date.  If you think the weather may be favorable we do a meet?  We have a few buds up near the Poconos who may be interested...   :schh:

If yall agree, I guess all we need now is a nice eatery to meet... :P

I was talking to the people at Smokey Bones but there are a lot of Restaurants in the area; Red Robin, Cracker Barrel , Applebees , Ground Round , TGI Fridays , Friendly's , Denny's , Logans , Uno's chicago grill , Bob Evans and few smaller ones with nice sized lots.
