Is anyone interested in getting together at Hooters in Aurora on January 8th maybe 6pm or so? (I was going to post this up about three weeks ago but I've been busy with work and family obligations.) I tried to do this before but it seemed as though no one was interested.
Let me know if your interested and we can get this set up.

Happy Holidays!


Edit:

I had a scheduling conflict with this date and a birthday party for my daughter. So unfortunately I won't be making it to the GTG. But please don't let this stop you guys from continuing on with it.

I hope to do this again in the near future. Again sorry.

Jason

I am going to mark my calendar and plan to show as well. Please confirm as we get closer. Looking forward to catching up with like minded TDI owners.

I'm open so at this point it's all weather permitting.

Now we have to get DZ in on this.

I'm in. The food is crap, the waitresses interchangeable and sporting Oompa-Loompa spray tans, but at least the conversation should be bearable!

I'm glad to see the interest this year, it will be a fun time for sure. But right now I'm at wits end trying to figure out my daughters b-day party, her B-day is new years eve. We where to have her party for her school mates and friends on the 2nd, but it appears there is a scheduling conflict at the place we where supposed to have her party at. So as of right now I'm not sure if I will be able to make the 8th GTG???
Idk, we are pulling our hair out now trying to find another location for the party, we want it on the 2nd. But have only been able to find places to rent out on the 8th so far.
I'll let you all know if we can find a place. Otherwise the GTG can still go on without me or we can reschedule it. Sorry for the crappy news.

Unfortunately I wasnt able to get another day scheduled for my daughters B-day party but the 8th. So I wont be making the 8th GTG :(. It seems that the place had double booked and we where the last to make a down payment to hold the date. I guess that's what happends when your wife can't make up her mind where she wants the party!

So I guess just go ahead with it guys and hopefully we can do this again some time in the near future. If by chance it doesnt happend then maybe we can reschedule for a late date. Either way is just fine by me.

Volks:

I'm flexible on the date for this GTG. I think the person who initiated the idea should be able to attend so unless someone else strongly objects we ought to let Jason pick a date to reschedule this gig. Thoughts anybody?

I do appreciate that Dan, but I feel as though if people show up I have helped accomplish something.

I say I won't be able to make it, that's because we have some family coming to the party. If they don't come back to the house afterwards or don't stay that long, I still maybe able to make a portion of the GTG. BIG and I mean BIG maybe, but I seriously doubt it. So I just plan on not makeing it.

Ditto with Dan - I'm flexible for dates. The following weekend is the NAIAS in Detroit so that one is out, and it looks like my trip to the UK has been pushed back to February (for now). Plenty of other dates available to pick that you can attend, Jason!

Ok
Let me look at the calendar, if any others have the same feelings then I'm good with changing the date. I would just hate to change it of everyone is already set on that date (I already feel like a jackass for having to say I cant make my own GTG). But I guess stuff happends for a reason. Maybe we will get more people to show up on another date?
Let's just stop and listen for a few days before anything changes. If there are no objections, I would love to change the date so I may attend. But like I said, I'm ok with it going on without me also. ;)

Maybe someone will suggest a different place to meet in the meantime also (as I guess beautiful tan waitress' in skimpy cloths doesn't make every man happy, lol).

Sounds good guys. I think I'll wait till after the holidays to reschedule, just want to make sure nothing pops up unexpectedly. If anyone has any ideas, please feel free to post em up.

Sorry, Aurora, Illinois not Aurora, Colorado. You are certainly welcome to join us if you wish, but the drive might be a burden this time of year. You would probably win the road warrior trophy if you decided to show up though.

Good call Dan. I guess Colorado could (should?) be part of the Midwest, my bad for not clarifying that, sorry.

But your more than welcome to come, as is everyone else that wants to come out.

Now just to decide on a new date!

Hi All,

manual_tranny is coming to my house in Oswego to help me with a TB change on 1/15. I haven't confirmed a time with manual_tranny yet, but I was thinking around 11 am start time. We can make it a GTG if anyone else is interested. I've got plenty of parking and a heated garage. I'm planning on cooking up a big pot of chili. :) PM me for the address.

Waiting for reschedule

Brian:

AFAIK, this GTG has been postponed and we are waiting for Jason (D-cell Mekanick) to set a new date. Jason had some scheduling conflicts with his daughter's Birthday party and would not have been able to make it to the GTG he originally proposed. Since most expressed flexibility on the date of this GTG the reschedule seemed like the best option.

Things have finally started to settle down here. I will be looking at the calendar here shortly and checking my schedule. I will repost a date soon. Untill then if anyone has any preference let me no.

I'm looking forward to a future D-Cell_Mekanic GTG.

Next Saturday 1/15 Manual_Tranny and I will be doing a timing belt change on my car at my house in Oswego. All of Us and D-Cell_Mekanic have said they might stop by. I'll be making a pot if chilli and some salsa. If anyone would like to drop by, send me a PM and I'll send you the details.
