Looks like I can attend as of now, though there's a chance I may have to cancel last minute.
For now, plan on me being there unless I post otherwise.
Posted 18 January 2018 - 08:48 PM
I appreciate both of you letting me know. We still have a week, so hopefully, there will be more people attending.

It will be nice to meet you. The first person there should tell the host that there will be a group from the Fort Worth Forum. I'm a semi-regular customer of the restaurant, so they know me there.
Posted 26 January 2018 - 11:04 AM
Yep, I'm out too. Too much work on my desk.
Posted 26 January 2018 - 11:12 AM
I'm trying to make it. Got a fire I need to put out first and I think I can get there.

Is there any else currently here?
Posted 26 January 2018 - 01:48 PM
Sorry you missed us. There were only 3 of us there and we were at the table in the far right corner from the entrance. Good discussion as always.
Posted 26 January 2018 - 07:48 PM
Three of us were there. PeopleAreStrange and JBB joined me. We had an interesting discussion, including some things that were "off the record".

I had some unofficial information to share with the group, and for right now it is probably best not to release it to the public due to possible changes.

Im at benitos but the host thinks the meeting is elsewhere.
Is there any else currently here?
Ouch! What time did you arrive? I arrived right around 11:45- perhaps a minute or two later.
When the host asked me "just one?," I asked if there was a group for the Fort Worth Forum while looking around. She pointed to a large group; I told her that wasn't it and assumed I was the first one there.
Before John and eventually JBB showed up several minutes later, I got up and looked around again to make sure y'all hadn't gathered somewhere else.
EDIT: Unfortunately, I don't know what you look like.

I also looked around for someone who might have been "lost", but I didn't see anyone either. I haven't met you before, so you might have been a little hard to spot. However, we have always found those people who have never attended a meeting before. I'm really sorry.

Do I remember right that they originally had a big daytime celebration planned for the implosion, but then after 9/11 it didn't seem right to have any fanfare around a building coming down?

this was a slightly younger male I spoke with. I was there at approximately 11:50. I probably should upload an image of me, for the future, haha
Posted 28 January 2018 - 06:12 PM
Sorry I couldn't make it... things popped up at the last moment.
Posted 01 February 2018 - 10:31 PM
John, by any chance can we make this happen on a Friday night or weekend some month? Or, an off-schedule meet-up from the monthly norm?
Posted 01 February 2018 - 10:53 PM
Yes, we can set one up for a weekend, or a Friday night.
Posted 01 February 2018 - 11:04 PM
Haven't seen you in ages. It would be great to catch up and meet others I may have met way back or anyone else I haven't met before.
Posted 08 February 2018 - 04:05 PM
Had to be in Houston so I missed all the inside top secret Juicy Gossip
Posted 08 February 2018 - 09:44 PM
The good news is that the top secret juicy gossip has been released to the public. So, other than meeting the forum members, you didn't miss out on anything.
Posted 15 February 2018 - 03:28 PM
February is a short month, so that means that the monthly forum meeting has rolled around again. It will be on Friday, February 23rd at 11:45 at Benito's. I'm working on a weekend meeting for later in the Spring when the weather gets warmer.

There is a good chance that I won't be able to make it this month. If I don't, please carry on without me. I will know more later in the week.
Posted 22 February 2018 - 08:58 AM
Right now, it is looking better for me to make it to the forum meeting. However, there is still a chance that I may not be there.
Posted 22 February 2018 - 10:54 AM
That's great, Doohickie. It's been a while since we have seen you.
Posted 22 February 2018 - 09:07 PM
I think I will be there, but there is still a possibility that I won't make it. My schedule is clearing up a little bit.
Posted 23 February 2018 - 11:38 AM
I will be leaving my office for Benito's in about 10 minutes.
Posted 23 February 2018 - 02:25 PM
We had a "new" forum member attend the lunch today. Arch-image showed up for the first time. Thanks for coming. The other characters who attended the meeting were Doohickie, Hipolyte, and PeopleAreStrange. It was a nice lunch. For those of you who have not attended, we do these forum lunches on the last Friday of every month at Benito's.

Thanks John! I enjoyed the meeting! Good to meet some of the folks. Have to say, it's always a bit weird to intro yourself using your nickname! lol. I guess you have the right idea just using your name

Not necessarily. Many people want to be anonymous on the forum.
