Maybe a meeting at the Syracuse (18-19th) or Rochester (25-26th) fun shows? Those are the last 2 weekends in September.

These are probaby a bit of a drive for the NYC/LI crew:(

I've never been to a syracuse show
might have to seriously consider it. have to see how the job thing turns out. just got a temp job at a place I applied to for a permanent position, but they aren't interviewing for that yet and offered me a different position to handle the back to school rush. Job's at UB's on campus computer store. no idea if I'll be working weekends by that weekend, right now I am

I've got a table at the show with a couple other fellow ARFcommers. I will get the number later.

Jack Ackerman, out of Binghamton, NY, is the show organizer. Same as the Albany show. I'm willing to bet there might be a table still available if you wanted one. You never know.

Hmmmm, dinner options Saturday after show? Tully's and Fresno's in Fairmount, reasonably close and very easy to get to from the Fairgrounds, or something better?

I have a table at the Syracuse show, and would like to join in.
It's tough to socialize during the show if you have a table, about the time a converssation gets started some ya-hoo wants to butt in with twenty questions about a gun he has no intention of buying.
Dinner after the show would be very nice, and I will pay my own way. (inside joke, right?)

Don't worry TBS, we also hit the Rochester show in the AM and then have lunch with Ed, kind of becoming a tradition

I'm in, and I'll see if ICU wants to carpool!

What about Dinosaurs BBQ or the Outback?

Tell me where and when you want to meet, I'll be there!

If we can find a motel for the ARFCOM Crew for Saturday night that would be good too, they might give us a discount for multiple members.

If we all meet at the show give us a time and place within the building I suggest the small room where they put Ammoman.com It wooudl be easier than say the middle of the show. Suggest FRS Radios turned to Channel 10, that way if we get there earlier some of us might take in the show TOGETHER!

Callsign will be ARFCOM -then your nearest city OK?

Example:

Adirondack/ICU's callsign would be ... ARFCOM -Utica...

What do ya think guys?

Looking forward to seeing you in Syracuse.

Tully's is probably the best bet for dinner rather than going back in to Syracuse, and pretty good food. Address is 3355 W. Genesse St, Fairmount, 13219. We usually go here after the gunshow. Simply get back on State Fair Blvd from Fairfrounds front entrance, heading W (left), turn right on 695 W ramp towards Auburn/Fairmount. When on 695, stay towards left lanes, towards Fairmount. If you go right, you go to Auburn. 695 ends on W. Genesee Street. You will be looking at a Wegmans directly in front of you. Tullys is just across the street (same side as Wegmans) to your right. Can't miss it. Distance is ~3-4 miles.

FYI, the Fairgrounds address is 581 State Fair Blvd, Syracuse, 13209.

This is a good show, upwards of 800+ tables.

As an aside, there is also a new Bass Pro shop you guys might find of interest, located on Rt 5 just west of Auburn.

Sounds like fun, hope you gents don't mind if I invite myself! Looks like it's a 3-4hr drive from Orange County. I should know for sure in the next couple of weeks if I can make it, have to confirm my work schedule.
