    I posted this in the other thread but I am creating a new one for this. I think it would be fun. We seem to do alot of things over the past year with some of the area chapters. Albany,Rochester, Buffalo, even Canada.

    What if we had a regional meeting between the area chapters to brain storm for events and such?
    Perhaps once a month or every other month?

    Is anyone interested?

    Let me know your thoughts.

    This is something I am going to propse to some of the other neighboring chapters in our region as well.

    I'd be up for a regional meet. I was thinking maybe 4 times a year and we could alternate between Toronto, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany each time. Or something like that...

    ok.
    I changed the title in the threasd to reflect this new crazy idea I have .....LOL

    Since everyone was geared up to come out here for the dinner/con and that fell thru. Everyone still has a big interest in getting together for some type of dinner.

    Im thinking x-mas would give us plenty of time to plan and organise a nice dinner/gift exchange. One big end of the year party so to speak.

    I think Syracuse should host the first one ;) LOL We could rent out the firehouse again like the St pattys parade and have a activities/food/etc.

    What r everyones thoughts?


    I would like to see this take off. We hardly get to see our neighboring chapters and the holidays are always a great time to get together with old friends :) (and new ones)

    We're still willing to come over!
    We're more free on the 4th, but we could also do the 5th if it's in the evening as we have a toy show in the morning/afternoon.

    I vote on the 4th. The 5th is to busy. We should start discussing who wants to bring what to eat and what kind of numbers we are looking at so far. I may be able to provide some kind of main dish if I can make it in my moms crock pot and be able to transport it in who's ever car I get a ride in. Also if I can get there early enough for it to heat up. Maybe beef BBQ or possibly Chili. If not then my Taco dip and I will make sure someone brings chips, if not myself, this time. As for the gift exchange what are the guidelines going to be, price range? Star Wars related only?

    I dont think it should be SW related I think it can be anything. We should probably cap it at 10.00 ??

    if anyone wants to go over that cap its a personal choice.

    I think Chili sounds great Jeff.

    I am going to call the firestation today and confirm we can get it for that date. Anytime we are shooting for in particular?

    I will not be able to attend. December is very busy at the club and no one will be having any time off apart from xmas day. I will be working 7 days a week for the whole month.

    Sorry guys.

    I probably won't be able to make it either. I'm supposed to take a civil service test on that Saturday, but we'll see what happens.

    7 days a week? Ouch!!!! I can not complain about my 2 jobs anymore. Hope you can make it Hothgirl. Wont be the same without you 2. Oh well. Works more important unfortunately.
    So is it going to be the 4th then. We need to make it official soon. I am not sure how long we want to be there. I am thinking maybe start at 3 or so. Eat sometime about 4 or 5 end at 7 maybe. 4 hours maybe? Not sure if that's to late or to early. We need a couple hours to get there I guess. I will post on our Board and see what everyone says.

    Hmmmm...I already booked Dec 3rd and 4th off to come down for this. I doubt I could ever get another weekend off now, that close to Christmas. Does it have to be at the Firehall? I'd really like to participate.
