    Hi All,

    I have been in PM contact with Regular Joe who organized the first OC Dinner in Culpeper back in December. I was really bummed that I was out of the country on a business trip when that dinner happened. We've talked about how to proceed with the Culpeper area dinners and we agreed to try out the 'regular weeknight' format that works REALLY well for the Richmond group (and many others).

    So I've made an executive decision (really I had a monkey throw a dart at a calendar) and I've come up with the 4th Thursday of each month. I realize this will make it all but impossible for the "out of towners" from NOVA and Richmond to join us, but in exchange we have a better chance of meeting our neighbors because we're not trying to schedule adinner on a weekend evening when there's conflicts with soccer, football, t-ball, swim team, etc., etc., etc.

    We'll set home base for these dinners as Culpeper, but we'll rotate around a bit depending on where the participants come from. I'm figuring the dinner can travel as far North as Warrenton and South to Orange/Madison/etc. East and West, well there aren't many cities, though maybe to Lake of the Woods/Locust Grove if there's demand. I'm modeling this after Richmond again, who move from the "North Side" to the "West Side" to the "South Side" to the "East Side" in a regular rotation so the driving distances are fair for everyone.

    So, without further fanfare, here's the detail for the first, of what I hope will become many, monthly Culpeper-area dinners.

    Date: January 28

    Time: 7:00 PM

    Location: Pancho Villa Mexican Restaurant

    Address:‚Äé 910 South Main Street
    Culpeper, VA 22701-3421


    Map: Google



    Please RSVP in this thread (not binding, no deposit required) so we can get a basic headcount.

    Hope to see lots of you there!

    I'm moving to Louisa soon, so may be up for attending future dinners, once I'm out of NOVA.

    AWESOME!! Count us in! Thanks, Livitup, for planning this.

    My wife and myself, and our step son, will be there OCing. I may bring my 12-yr-old as well.

    Pancho's is easy to find and has plenty of parking - I haven't OC'd there yet so this will be an adventure.

    Congrats!! Looks like you all are off and running.

    Why not call it the Greater Culpeper OC Dinner.

    If you've been to Culpeper you'd know that calling it the Greater Culpeper Area would only ensure that a handful of cows get added to the RSVP list.

    Ain't goin' there - ain't touchin' that one - no way, no how.

    One thing's for sure, you won't get the award for most distance traveled this time.

    Grapeshot - are you planning on being a contender for our "most distance traveled" award?

    Really would like to - you have a great group up there. Have too much going on this week though.

    If snow for the week-end - Richmond will be paralyzed if we get over 2"

    February OC dinner at Culpeper Thai was excellent - even though I did forget about it and ended up 30 minutes late!

    Livitup - thanks for being gracious enough to hang out late with us!

    Watch for news on the next Culpeper OC dinner - to be held in the Warrenton area ("Greater Culpeper OC Dinner...?!? )
