    Tidewater OC August dinner - August 28th / 7pm / Golden Corral

    There is an OC dinner planned on August 28th / 7pm / Golden Corral / Volvo Pkwy and Battlefield. This is in Chesapeake. I look forward to seeing some of you there and finally getting a chance to meet you!

    Don't ask - just do it - they will come.

    Make it official - and name the city for those not informed.

    Hey! A Saturday!

    Brilliant. I might be able to make it and bring the missus and little one. He's never been to a buffet before. I bet he'll love it!

    Darn!

    I really want to make it out to one of these, but I'm playing that night at the oceanfront.

    Mech? Didn't I mention how you should do it on the Boardwalk? Heheheh... Judging from the first couple posts, I guess you didn't listen. Tis ok. You did it right. Don't feel bad, though. That is exactly what happened to me. I made the "mistake" of asking, too. Someone (I think it was Ron) said "DON'T ASK, just schedule it!" so I did.

    This one is a bit far for us, but we may make it. The only problem is that The Trough (GC) has higher rates on weekends (or is it just Sunday?)

    Show me and the wife as probable for this one.
    If I'm not mistaken this is actually at Volvo Pky and Battlefield Blvd. 101 Volvo Pky., Correct?

    Would love to make the trip - have done so before on several occasions - great bunch down there.

    Unfortunately, have two meetings that day and a previous commitment for the evening. I will take a rain check though.

    Sorry to hear you can not come. I will hope to see you next time. I always appreciate your posts...they are "no nonsense" and "to the point". You have a great knack for cutting through the clutter...it IS appreciated!!!!

    I will talk with the Mrs. and see if she's up for it.

    For those curious, this would be the Golden Corral at the intersection of Volvo and Battlefield Blvd. It's very hard to miss. It sits in the opposite corner of the intersection from Walgreens.

    Just realized I've had a weekend backpacking trip in George Washington National Forest planned for this weekend for the last month. Also just realized that I'll have to CC.

    Are you going to Catherine's Furnace by chance? My buddies and I go camping out there every year around Columbus Day. It's great!

    Been working all Summer; definitely not in shape for it.

    I'll add Catherine's Furnace to the list. I've hiked the Massanutten ridge trail just next to it though.
