    All it takes is a post telling folks where and when you will be there ("If you post it, they will come."). If anybody shows up you are a hero. If nobody shows up you are a braver hero for going it alone.

    We Richmond folks would mostly be pleased as punch to have you join us, but will understand if you decide to start your own little group.

    stay safe.

    Our breakfasts are much more informally planned (with a few notable exceptions) than than the dinners - typically from 7 - 12 will be there.
    That and people tend to come and go throughout the morning - some arrive early and stay late.

    We always find out how many we were before we leave though.

    You can all talk about me

    .. I won't make it. It's about all I can manage getting Logan ready with snacks and juice to get to RCD for 9.45 / 10 and that's only about 5 miles from home. Traveling Southside with him I'd probably need to start getting him and his stuff ready, well .. about NOW

    I'll try to dynamite Shannon outta bed in time to get up there for this... Ain't too far from Newport News, is it?

    No promises, but she likes to harass Grapeshot whenever she can, so maybe she'll be motivated to get up on a Saturday before NOON...

    OOPS... Just checked "directions" link the OP posted... 1 1/2 hrs for us. Can't make this one as Spousal Unit has to work and I am transportation. Maybe next time!

    If you were to leave now and don't make too many deviations from the chart like passing the buoys on the wrong side its a simple day sailin' trip. OTOH you could just turn the helm over to Shannon in the morning and get some more rack time - trust her to wake you when she docks.

    a south side breakfast? Holy Cow Batman!

    If I don't show for this one sidestreet will never let me live it down since it is only 2 miles from the house.

    Besides, I heard Skid has a sexy new haircut.

    THIS I got to see.
