Question Midwest Fall/Winter Gathering

Any word of one??
I know Wally put on a great get together lasst November.
It was an awesome time.
70+ people from all around the midwest and even a couple off the coast.

Lets hear it, do we hire Wally to organize the Second Annual Dave & Busters gathering???

I vote for it.

I'll organize another but dont count on it being at D&B again! That place was cool but they were expensive! I think our final count was 82 people but i felt bad getting money from people who showed up late and didnt get any of the food. I know i warned everyone but still...

We had some left over money that i gave to the waiters to split cause they handled our group very well considering the size of us!

There was an OSO member that i cant remember who that was tell'n me about some rib joint or somehting like that they knew of that would be able to set us up nicely......who were you?

Cashbrain, you want to chime in here? Make this an OSO/COPS thing???

I am going to do the Mid-Atlantic OSO/Powerboater Winter Chill-Out again in February. I have yet to research a venue, but I am looking into the indoor pro go-karts like SCOPE does. This will not be a cheap event, but not everyone will have to race to come. It will be an optional thing; if we go that route. The good part is, the go-kart track is about 10 minutes from Dulles Airport, and this will be an open event for anyone to fly in and attend!!
Racing is going to be about $60 bucks a person; and is money VERY WELL SPENT!!

Wally did a heck of a job last year, and it was one of the highlights of my winter. Thank you, Wally. If you're willing to do the work again, that would be great! November worked okay for us last year, though it would not be the same without Mr. and Mrs. Troutly, the first OSOer's I ever met in person. (did you two know that?)

Sounds great

Love ribs

Maybe take this as a starting point from Troutlys post as to what works best for people?

Dec is out for me
way to many things going on.
Jan is open and so is Feb
But march is a done gone scheduled weekend month for me
Not that is really matters if I am there, but no one else was chipping in for the Photo Finally
Still wondering how the hell I got sucked into that one

I think a Jan/Feb get together might be a good time.

Dec is out for me as well as well as a few weekends in Nov.

D & B's was fun.

Wally, any Casino's down around you? That might be a fun place to hang around
