    Smile Hampton Roads OCDO Dinner - Village Inn in Virginia Beach Va on Wed, August 4th @ 7pm

    It's been a while since I've seen one scheduled. I know I've missed the last few that have happened.

    How about we get one going?

    My suggestion is Village Inn in Virginia Beach Va on Wed, August 4th @ 7pm.

    My wife & I will be there. How about you?

    Ed, that is what I'm saying. I just don't like to make demands. I did give day, time, and place. I will go back and make it more clear though.

    Because when they are held in Hampton, I am almost assured of not being able to make it. There's this thing called the HRBT and it has this annoying tendency to have the traffic through it all backed from 5pm to 7pm.

    Basically, to make it to the Hampton / Newport News dinners I typically have to leave my house in Norfolk by 4:30/5:00pm to be able to make it through the tunnel and get there in time. If I do that, I end up arriving rather early (by an hour or more). If I leave my house at a more reasonable time, I get stuck in tunnel traffic and end up arriving significantly late (by upwards of an hour or more).

    I also find my arriving late to be rude and disrespectful (in my opinion), particularly if intentions of being late was not prior information. Moreso if the group was waiting for me. I endeavor to not be rude and disrespectful.

    All that aside, if you want a Hampton OCDO, then do as I have and start one.

    In the early evening hours (and many times throughout the day elsewise) it is nearly impossible to transit from the Southside to the Peninsula and vice-versa without enduring some form of tunnel-related delay.

    Unless it's held at a Denny's at 3 AM, there's really no getting around it. Period.

    Which is why dining events are held and/or scheduled by those motivated to get a group together and provide convenience to themselves. I personally wouldn't schedule something in York if I live (which I do) in Virginia Beach.

    It comes back to the same thing it always has (and for which I got ripped on when I first found this site): if you want to schedule a dinner, lunch or breakfast in your area - DO IT! No one is grand high potentate and there is no necessity to "clear it" with some higher-ups. There are none.

    Make a plan. Put it out there. If people want to attend and are able, they will. I've been to suppers where they had to bring in extra tables because more people showed than RSVP'ed. I've also been to a couple where the whole group fit around an 8-top.

    Like peter nap said elsewhere, organizing something like this is akin to herding cats. You'll never get everyone in agreement or accord. Pick a place you like to eat and think others will, too. Schedule a date and time. Post the invitation. Have fun.

    I'm in town for a few days. My dad and I will be at Fuddruckers at Virginia Beach Blvd and Independence Blvd tomorrow, Friday, 30 August at 1930 local. I may not even be armed with a pistol if my dad didn't bring enough guns, though I will have my fists, which are registered lethal weapons in the state of California

    Where's Colt 1911??

    Since he's from the area, I thought for sure he'd be at this dining out...

    GSL Stickers

    Hey all...As some we talked to at the VCDL picnic, a few weeks ago, know...after the picnic my wife and I went to Hoss's Deli in Newport News to sell raffle tickets for a new Harley Davidson motorcycle, being held at a ride to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, coming up on Oct 3. Both my wife and I wore the GSL Stickers, from the picnic, to Hoss's. We sold quite a few tickets, and much to our surprise...the GSL stickers got nearly as much attention as the bike we were raffling off. We got over a dozen request from bikers that want to put a GSL sticker on their helmet. I was wondering if someone coming to the dinner, Wednesday night, might have a roll of stickers they can sell to me? PM me, if you have a roll your willing to part with....

    Thanks,
    Dennis

    Added a maybe for me. Got a friend that might come with us. Need to talk with her. Removed fullarmedbiker's maybe. I'll leave his name in the event something comes up and he wants back in.

    BTW folks... Village Inn has their Pie special on Wednesdays. Buy an entree and get a free slice of pie. The evening manager (friend of ours) wants me to give her estimate of the number of people coming so she can make sure we're well taken care of. Wednesdays are busy due to the special.

    So maybe we should wear GSL stickers if we have them.

    I'm going to have to make my "maybe" into a definite "no." Just got a reminder call from my Dr's office...I have an appt at 6:30 Wednesday evening.

    However, I'm still looking to get my hands on a roll of GSL stickers...so if anybody has a roll they can sell, PM me.
