Hey guys, I'm flying into Phoenix for a "surprise" visit with my family this weekend, but would like to get together with a bunch of you for a bit of Holiday cheer sometime on Saturday afternoon. Typically, we have all met at "Harold's" in cave Vreek in the past, and I think that is again about as good of a place as any for us to wet or wistles and enjoy each others company. I have already contacted M1A-A1 to see about picking me up at Sky Harbor and taking me to my folks place in Cave creek, but if for some reason he is unablke to do it, I will need to rely on one of you if at all possible ([i]arriving Continental flight 1287 @ 1:35pm on Friday[/i]). As I said, this is supposed to be a surprise visit, where I just show up on their doorstep and call them from my cellphone, rather than ringing the doorbell... ([i]just like that new Christmas commercial[/i]) [:)] You guys ([i]the Phoenix bunch[/i]) became an integral part of my life this past year, when I spent so much time out there for surgery... Being that this is actually a pleasure trip based on the Holidays, I really hope we can all get together and be able to visit with each other for a few drinks. Please let me know ASAP, via this post!

ARlady or myself could prolly pick you up from the airport if you cannot find a ride from M1A-A1
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 8:04:50 AM EST
Thanks a million Matt... Will you 2 be available for a few drinks at the same place as last time..?
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 8:07:15 AM EST
As if I needed an excuse to go to Harold's....
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 8:09:52 AM EST
We would love to get together with ya'll at Harolds.
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 8:13:15 AM EST
I just spoke with the guys at Cavalry Arms, and they are very into the idea of "Christmas Sprits"... [beer] [blue]Now, we need to set a time, so how's 4:00pm at Harold's sound..?[/blue]
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 8:21:10 AM EST
5:00 would work a little better for me, but don't hold things up on my account.

No worries Matt, we'll just be starting 2nd round by then! [:D] BTW: M1A-A1 just called me back to let me know that he is UNABLE to pick me up, so I will need a ride from someone... [red]Continental #1287, arriving this Friday ([i]12-14-01[/i]) at 1:35pm[/red]

ARlady just told me she could pick you up, email her all the details(so she can print it out) and you should be cool. Continental comes into terminal 2 or 3?
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 9:11:37 AM EST
anti, as i'm still unemployed, and will likely be so still at the end of this week, it would be my pleasure to pick ya up from the airport. i can show off my "new to me" vehicle. it's a suburban so i should have plenty of room to stow any luggage, etc. that you've brought. look forward to seeing ya. and the rest of ya, too!
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 9:27:22 AM EST
All that I have is the above flight info, nothing more... It would be easiest for me to meet you along the sidewalk, if you get me a very good description of your vehicle. I'll either be carrying a purple/black duffle bag, or a silver/turquois/plumb backpack. Also, with my new perm, my hair is a bit curlier than it was before.
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 9:32:12 AM EST
Would love to join you but will probably be working.
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 10:03:15 AM EST
picking you up at the sidewalk sounds soooooo good to me. at least then i don't have to worry about weaving around trying to get into a close parking lot. i'll call up sky harbor and find out what terminal continental is at. my vehicle description. '96 chevy suburban. red with gray bottom trim. 4x4 so it sits a little higher. too bad i don't have it jacked yet. then you definitely wouldn't be able to miss it! [:D] just for additional ease in identifying it, i'll have some sort of ribbon or something tied to the antenna (wish we had AR15.com mini flags.) see you then!

I think terminal 3. I thought they closed 2.
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 10:08:41 AM EST
Terminal 4. Let's say north side, on the baggage claim level. We'll print print out a sign with your name and tape it to her rear side window. She might even slow down a little for ya' as she drives by....
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 10:09:09 AM EST
What does everyone think about a "gift exchange"..? We could set a $25 limit and just toss all of the packages intop a pile and then pass them around to whomever, this way you have no cluye as to who you... It would be best to put your own name on the package, so you don't get your own item, and the recipient will also know who it came from! Again, this is just a thought, so let me know what you all think!

Put [b]WWW.AR15.COM[/b] on the sign, and obviously I'll know it's her... Besides, think of the advertising we'll get at the airport over the holidays! [:D]

Were pretty much flat broke with just getting into the house and everything. All of our "discrecianary" funds, and some of the stuff I shouldn't have used went toward the LEGP 1911, so I would like to opt out. Sorry to be a party pooper.

Okay, then we can always make it "House Warming / Wedding Gifts" for the happy couple... [:X]

ARlady, Thanks for helping 'ole Anti. I'm afraid that I'll be the only Mgr. on friday. Hence why I can't get off!!! ( Damn...I sure did want to take that day off so as to compare "pumps" with anti [:I] )

Anti, I'm off Fri and Sun so I can help you out with a ride if need be. Email me and I'll send you my tel#. Let me know where and when on the get together.
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 5:37:07 PM EST
just for clarificatio purposes, the holiday cheer/get-together at Harold's is on SATURDAY, right???????? 4:00pm.
Link Posted: 12/10/2001 9:02:22 PM EST
I work on Saturday, but I should be off by 4:00. I'll try to make it.

I've never met any of you guys, would now be an ok time to show up or is this an invite- only kinda thing? -CK

No better time to meet a bunch of great guys and gals, then at an occasion such as this... Consider this an OPEN INVITATION!

lol You'll know who ARLady is, the instant you meet her. She'll be the chick keeping her fiance from stepping out of line, when she's not busy picking on me for something I probably didn't do... YET! She and I have a very special "LOVE/HATE" relationship, where she just loves to hate me! [:D]

You better dude [;)] Now, who can we recruit to give our southern (Mesa/Tempe/chandler) folks proper directions to the north (Cave Creek) ??? I could try , but not very good at it [:E]

I'll give it a shot. From the (South) East Valley: However you get to the Loop 101, take it North until it dumps you onto Pima. Continue taking Pima all the way Cave Creek Road. Turn West (left) onto Cave Creek and take that to just West of School House Road. Harold's is on the South side of the road. From the West Side: Take the other Loop 101 North until it turns East, then continue on East to Cave Creek. Get off at Cave Creek, turn North, and take that all the way to Harold's. If you think you've gone too far, you probably haven't.

tim, you'll be landing at terminal 4. i'll pick you up on the SOUTH SIDE sidewalk rather than the north side. less traffic, less construction, and easier to get to. i'm IMing you just to make sure you get this. send me an email to confirm receipt. thanks, jenn

I was going to comment on the previous notes about Terminals 2 and 3 (both of which are still operational)...hehe. Yup...Terminal 4 is the one for Continental and also the one that's a big mess from construction. [img]http://www.lpconnect.com/pb2/skyharbor.jpg[/img] Anti...sorry I won't make the gathering this time. Enjoy! And remember the new airport security modeled after another American security system for our schools where we basically discontinued all the security check points, got rid of any armed officers and then put these nifty signs out front of the airport...

I just realized that I gave directions to Crazy Ed's instead of Harold's. Ooops. The directions from the West side are still correct, except that you have to go even further on Cave Creek. The directions from the East side are close, but incorrect. Do not go all the way to Schoolhouse Road. It is just west of Tom Darlington (Scottsdale). See map below. The address is 6875 E Cave Creek Rd, Cave Creek. [img]http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1721265&a=13415479&p=57336907[/img]

What's pathetic is that for a Damn Yankee, I know the directions to Harold's better than any of you guys! [:D]
