Ended up being just me and my brother. Hope we get a better turnout next time. Nice on the 86 hours, I know it's a pain working that many ours but I bet the check will make up for it. Anyone have a problem with Golden Corral at Hanes Mall next month?
GC sounds great. I made sure to not sign up for OT next month on fridays so I will be there.

I will go ahead and put the GC at Hanes Mall as the next meetup.

Papa Bear, for the November meetup, would something close to King be a easier for you to get to? I don't know any places to go there but its closer than Winston or High Point. Not sure how King will work for everyone else but I figure we could try it once if someone knows of a good place to meet.

Please don't worry about me. ten,twenty miles one way or another is not going to effect me one bit. i just have to decide weather or not i have the gas, food, or time to travel somewhere. i didn't even go to the town where my son lives for a picnic with gun owners, because i knew i have to be in Hickory this weekend.

you guys have your meet & greet the best for you, and if i have one up here you will be invited

At least we have 1 coming besides me and my brother. Anyone else coming? We have not had that many people the last couple meet ups, hope we can start to turn that around. I am going to try and send a pm to those that have come in the past in case they have missed the posts here.

It is not always about the quantity - small numbers allow for more conversation between each other and still have the exposure to the general public. Have found that the smaller groups generate more questions/interaction from other dinners = educating the public.

Keep up the effort - you will create interest.

Like papa bear said, we had a good time even though it was just the 3 of us despite papa bear trying to get the waitress to kick me out because I was OC haha. I am going to put next months meetup at Prissy Polly's in K-Ville on Nov. 1st.

Had 6 to show up tonight. Had a good time. Enjoyed meeting James and his brother, hope you guys make it out to the next one. Think we decided to head back to winston for the next one. Think we want to try something besides GC, will see what I can find and will post it when I find a good place. IF any suggestions for 2A friendly places with good food in Winston lets hear them.
