Let's do another luncheon in the Valley.

How about Furr's Fresh Buffet again on February 17, 2010, which is exactly the one year anniversary of the first one, at 11:00AM?

Eh!

Geeks, that is fine if you want to suggest another location with a banquet room for a reasonable price. The food and the variety is good in my opinion.

I didn't attend the last Buffet. Where do you plan to hold it?

We plan to attend the Sweetheart Rally at Buckhorn in Kerrville. Feb 11th thru 14th.

It will take us a few days to get to Mission. We have always stayed 2 nights whenever we stop so it will be about 4 days before we arrive in Mission. We will stay about a month.

Do you plan to attend the Sweetheart Rally?

Bob, my plan right now is that we will go to the Sweetheart rally which is being held on Feb. 11-14 and leave Kerrville on the 15th. The luncheon will be at Furr's Fresh Buffet in McAllen on Wednesday the 17th which is the one year anniversary from last year's luncheon.

The major difference this year is that we will be paying for our own meals. I hope you can change your travel plans to be able to make it with us.

Hey Bobcat, From Buckhorn to Mission is just a touch over 300 miles. Only a few minutes over your normal desired driving day. You could make it! C'mon man, it's a BUFFET!:D;):D;);)

We'll be there...don't want to miss a good meal with friends!

Don't think we'll have to worry about filling the room...since we're paying our own way, I doubt it will attact quite as many attendees...:rolleyes:

I suggest that since Jay started this thread he buys our lunch/dinner and heck he is one of those well payed wagonmasters for the Spring, Tx rally. No matter what you can count us in for food and do bring a cake for me that day it is my B'day and I will then start collecting SS. WOOHOO

Jay, you still going to Casa. wink, wink

Tom,
Jim promised me a new Grand Canyon with all the options for doing this year's rally in Houston. I'm working with Freightliner to get them to issue me a new truck to pull the new rig.

See there it pays to be a wagonmaster......

The reunion thread has kind of died off. I hope there is more interest in having one.

Hey Jay...I think we'll be able to drum up alot more interest once we all start getting back to the valley. Right now alot of us are still busy with business and traveling...come October-December we'll all start arriving...then look out!!!:D

Got my first SS check last month. Every LITTLE bit helps. Just hope our government doesn't give it all away before I can get my share.

I know Kathy, I was just trying to keep the thread going.

I know the feeling Jim, everything we can get helps!

Tom of Ypsi

Jay,

I agree with Kathy and maybe a few of us can get together when we get to the RGV and start doing a little planning. Maybe a trip to the pirate ship by S. Padre Island or something similar instead of a luncheon. Just a little food for thought.

Jim, I have to wait for my share of SS so until then do not collect all of yours and save some for me.

To get this thread going again, I would like to get some more input from members that are interested in having another Luncheon in the Valley.

February 17th falls on a Wednesday and would work for us. We will be going to the valley on Feb. 8th and will leave on the 22nd. We have workcamping jobs in January and March near Houston.

Please let me know your thoughts on this date and we'll begin to make plans.

Hi Jay,

We are going to do our best to come this year. We will leave Sweetheart Rally and probably come on down with Jim B. Where will Jim B be staying or do you know yet? And can we get in also?

Hi Jim,

I have not made any CG arrangements in the valley. I expect to have my RV at the "event", if we have one. Any days before or after - I will need a place to stay. If any are available, maybe rent a site at Retama again. Or stay further east.

We'll be there with bells on!!! Jay, let me know what I can do to help.

Jim, we'll see what we can do here in Retama for a spot, it will depend on when, but I'm pretty sure I can work something out...:)

The way things are looking for us we will need to have doggie bags sent or brought to us. Judy is scheduled for surgery on Feb 4 and being that it is major surgery we are pretty sure we will not be in the valley until March at the earliest. If Judy is feeling good we may try and visit some of you in the valley this Jan for a couple of days.

Tom,
We will be heading back to Houston, well actually to Sealy, after the luncheon so I will see if I can get you a box lunch of some kind. Judy however will get a steak dinner with all the trimmings. She deserves it for putting up with you.
