    Howdy all,

    I spoke to a couple of guys about getting together in NH in early June, so I thought it best to get something down so we all could start planning. I'm thinking we can do a BBQ at my place and have a restaurant picked out, just in case it rains Sunday, June 8th.

    Get together fun would include: Food (supplied by me and my wife), drinks (I'll get some soda, but ideally a couple of folks would bring something to share, both alcoholic and non), some Transformer Trading, video games, movies, whatever. For games, I have a Wii with a few party games and 3 remotes, and a PS2. Delta, if you come I expect you to be the crap out of everyone at SSB.

    For food, I was planning on doing some simple stuff like Burgers, sausage and chicken. If anyone has any special dietary needs, let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate. Please feel free to bring a side dish or dessert!


    I'd like folks to RSVP as soon as possible, so we can get an idea of how many people will be up. I only ask if you do RSVP, you are sure you can commit, and don't cancel last second. Also, when you RSVP please let me know what you are bringing so we don't end up with 10 bowls of noodle salad.

    Thanks, hope to get a bunch of you guys over here!

    Update- Rescheduled for the 7th!

    Oh, you know I'm sooo there.

    I'll RSVP for me and myself.. I'm not sure if it will be just me, or me and the other half.

    hrmm... what to make though... Cheesecakes maybe?

    This could be pretty cool. I might be down for this date, though I need to double check. I was thinking we could maybe do Boston Billiard Club in Nashua. It would be a cool get together, the food is amazing from what I've heard, and people can drink or not drink. Here's a link.

    You said early June was good! The date I tossed out was just a jumping off point, toss out other suggestions.

    That looks good, let's see how many takers we have for it. Can you make it up to Concord if it's held there? I can make Boston in about an hour and a half, it's straight shot up 93.

    I might be able to make it to Concord, though I think there may be more options if we have it in Boston. There are tons of places around Fenway that just wreak of awesomeness.

    Sorry man I thought I had mentioned that my Girlfriend's birthday was the 31st. I think every other weekend in June is good.

    Crap, you're right. I blame my wife...she forgot too. Editing the first post, let's shoot for the 8th, so one of TFW's regulars can make it.

    Agreed. There's a Boston Billiards, Jillian's, King's for bowling, plenty of bars and it's all near Fenway.

    What are shooting for here, some place in Boston, or someone's house in NH? I prefer hit it up in boston, but that's just me.

    So far three of the four people who seem down are from NH, myself, Lupis and Delta, so I think we're shooting for my place. The more the merrier :)

    So far, it's just me, in light of the situation at home that developed this weekend.

    Cheesecakes are still planned. :)  Wahoo!

    I think you'd have a bigger turn out if it was in Boston, but to each their own I suppose.

    My original intent for this thread was for New Hampshirites, but I figured folks in MA, VT and ME might be interested if they were only an hour or so away. I don't doubt we'd get a larger turnout in Boston, but I'm not really familiar with the area. Maybe someone down in MA can plan a get-together there?

    Guys, I realize it probably would'nt make sence to change the date for one person. It is'nt looking good for me on the 8th, and you have no clue how much I want to meet up with you guys.

    I was just wondering if this could happen on the 7th, 14th, or 15th? I really want to be there, so I hope somthing can be worked out...

    The 14th/15th won't work for me because I'll be in NYC. I think Lupis usually works on Saturdays, but maybe he has the 7th off (which is why I scheduled it for a Sunday to begin with). Lupis? If everyone else is good, I'm all for it.
