It looks like the Welcome Dinner will be held at the Mexican restaurant next door to the host hotel.

So the $20 includes the price of the dinner or is that to just get into the door?

Dare I ask the name of the messican place if this is in fact where it's gonna be, please?

Thanks!

Reading is fundamental.... :)


(Optional event..., cost not included in registration fee)


I dont know the name of the place. I dont live in Nashville, and I am currently 1500 miles away on vacation so I cant run by and look.

Perhaps someone local can go get the name...

Are you serious? Are you really that thin skinned?

I am posting this for YOUR benefit as a fellow NRA (life) member.
I have no dog in this fight, so the only one you are hurting is the NRA and FONRA.

I support both of these organizations from a personal and professional standpoint, and thought there would be some like minded people here that would like to do the same.

Tell you what, while I think your pouting isnt warranted, I am willing to offer the following:
Come to dinner Friday night, and its on me!

Again, your presence or absence does nothing for me. Your proposed strike of this event isnt going to cost me anything. So perhaps you can not take my comment as a personal attack against you (dude, it was a joke...get over it) and come out and support this worthwhile event.

Hope to see you (and many others) there!

With my friends, no. You & *I* have NEVER met nor will we be likely to do so.

Enjoy your dinner with 2 fewer guests than what I was going to bring. Be sure to tell someone why too.
