It's time to start up the Forum Meetings for 2018.  The first one for the new year is Friday, January 26th at 11:45 AM.  We will meet at Benito's on Magnolia.  Please reply so we can get a head count.

That's an off-Friday for me so I should be able to make it.

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.

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.

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.

Videos of the DFW Airport implosion we discussed. I couldn't find the long distance video I've seen.

Hey, guess what?  I just remembered the forum lunch was today! 

 

Sorry guys, I've been out of it.  I'm just getting over a bout of bronchitis/sinusitis.

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.

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?

That's correct. I think it was scheduled for a weekend shortly after 9/11. It was done unannounced in the middle of the night.

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

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?

Yes, we can set one up for a weekend, or a Friday night.

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.

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.

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.
