Excellent meeting today!

Ill let Steve Bricks do the *official* wrap up after i say it was great meeting all of you and getting to look over a couple rigs out there in the parking lot. Hopefully with spring and summer coming up shortly, there will be a lot of BBQ's and camping trips in our chapter's future. For those of you who didnt get to chat with me or introduce yourself, i was the big guy in the corner of the restaraunt taking pics and uploading them to the laptop. I also had those 2 little screaming kids you might have heard

I'm sure our Fearless Leader will post an official meeting thread soon.

I apologize for bailing out so early, and..... I didn't leave a tip for the water and chips that Colt and I consumed! If anybody had to pick up my slack on that please, please let me know.

Post some of those pics! Drew was taking some pics as well and I hope to see those on here.

Once again, many thanks to all who came out to Don Jose's this morning for our March meeting/ G2G - our largest turnout to date. It was a pleasure to finally meet so many of you and put a face to the name that is seen on the boards.

Since I am so lousy at the actual business portion of the meeting, let me, from my comfort zone behind the keyboard, mention a couple of things that a decent leader would have mentioned to you at the meeting:
Be sure that your private messaging is enabled - Go to Edit Options in the User CP to do this. Makes it a lot easier when we want to get in contact with you.
Add your first name to your signature. Easier to remember(for me anyhow).

Other than that, just come on in to the chapter boards and post up, start some threads, and have some fun!

Steve

On edit: One other thing - If you want to "rate" a thread, in here or anywhere else, go to the blue bar up at the top, click on the "Rate Thread" and you will get a drop down, click on your rating and it's done. No big deal, just something else to fool with on the 'puter -

Great job Steve and everyone who helped set up this meeting! I had loads of fun talking with everyone and checking nice rides outside! How do you all get them looking so nice? Anyhow thanks for the invite, I'll be looking forward to the next one. And I second that idea for a BBQ! Jim.

Hey Brady, my son Colt had a great time talking to your Lady. Unfortunately, my memory is not even remotely close to Bill's so... he asked her name and I cannot recall. Your truck is cool and it was a pleasure meeting you!

It was great to meet all of you guys and your ladies!

Drew, loved the sound of the Magnaflow when you pulled in the parking lot.

Jim, awesome camper setup on your F-450. PM me about our conversation if you have more questions...

Flash, thanks for shootin' the breeze with us at lunch. Clean ride you've got!

Willy, Alon, Brian and Brian, .... geez, I just can't recall all your names right now! fun_suv (AKA big guy in the corner...) thanks so much for taking and posting pics!

I'm looking forward to the next meeting guys.

Hey Fred, thanks for chiming in! Steve is The Man!!

Heck it was like a whirlwind tour meeting everybody. We'll definitely do it again soon.

Talking

Well it was nice to meet all you guys and thanks to Steve for putting it together. I am looking forward to the next time. Unfortunately my truck wasn't braking due to the fact that it had no brake fluid! LOL. I definitely gotta get that fixed up before the next meeting. That along with the headlights and windshield wippers(rewired). Its old and needs work what can I say? Thanks for the brake fluid Colonel Flashman. It's kinda weird once I got it home the brakes started working again.
