I dont know if I should go about organizing this one...but I'd love to see it happen again.

In light of the ban sunset...we can simply right this one off as a belated ban-sunset IL crew dinner, if that helps justify it to you guys.

If you're up for it, post up and lets set a location and a date.

Sure, we would be up for that, maybe a waitress will drop my food and then give me a free dinner.

It worked for Jimmy.

Hey buddah........How's it going ? How much longer til you're graduated ?
Link Posted: 10/4/2004 6:45:36 PM EDT
Well, naturally I am going to suggest Bloomington again...nice central location.

Whats the steakhouse you guys did this at last time? Might as well do it there.

I could go for another dinner. The last one that I went to was at Damon's, I think. I don't know if I missed any others. If you schedule one, could you post it over at pre-ban? I have a helluva time accessing arfcom, but I can visit pre-ban at will.

Well I graduated last spring, WooHoo! But now I am stuck in some Signal equipment retraining until Febuary.... I have a bunch of weekend passes and airfare is cheap for military so I think I will be game to come home for a dinner. Besides the foods better at home

Marksman14, it looks like your central dinner has been hi jacked. Name the place in Bloomington after the 19th. and it's cool. Jimmi can trip two waitresses and get ya the free b.

As for the Oct. 16th. dinner , I will be in Texas , hopefully next time.

Shit, I have not seen GreenDragon since last year at the range , I couldn't shoot his 308 cuz my little neighbor gave me a black eye, ...Line Drive hard ball. Little fucker.

J. Alexanders, Oakbrook Illinois, October 16 at 6pm.

Yea or Nay. If We see 6 or more Yea then we'll do it? Cool?

Bad date, what about all the people going to Gunstock 2004. How about something later, like the 24th?

It was at Damon's in Bloomington.

I might be game if it's not on a weekend--I'm working then.

Looks like the northern crew is confused--or is this a 2 dinner thread?

ETA: Another possibility if you're into "cook your own really massive steak" would be Alexander's Steakhouse in Bloomington, but I haven't been in a long time. With 2 places named Alexander's in very different locations on this thread, things could get confusing!

There is a Alexanders in Champaign to.......

Same here Marksman. Think last Il dinner was at Damons' in Bloomington. YOU were conspicuous in your absence (sp?)...

I did get to see Jimmi trip the waitress for his meal, though. And I got to meet the infamous BeeKeeper.

Link Posted: 10/18/2004 3:42:57 PM EDT
I'm game for bloomington, only about 1 1/2 from here, so it will limit my beverages during dinner
But I don't drink much anyway.
Link Posted: 10/19/2004 11:17:27 AM EDT
Back from texas

Lets make it soon, or maybe not. ...I Just found out I am being shipped out to somewhwre in Ohio.

please wait til I get back. I guess I will be there for a week?. No Idea. ..

gotta fix something. not my fault.

More Il. folks need to go to Gunstock next year, "And thats no bullshit"

Ps i think it should be ....The dinner , ought to be in Dallas . Verry Gun Friendly

I vote Bloomington. Also. Every one should eat in wherever suits their drive time.
