The raffle gifts I'm bring are more like gag gifts. Still Mac related, however...

I chose 6 items from the boxes in the garage, some are NIB some are used each one is unique and Apple related.

This should be fun!!

Me too, on the gifts smiling smiley

I'm pretty sure there will be enough for everyone to get something.

The fun will be that no one will know what they won until they unwrap it.

If everyone is up for it, the winners can trade around what they win.

This should be fun!

As I always say, "that's just my opinion, I could be wrong."

Dont worry GeneL, da wifee and I will make it. I let her know a long time ago. Gifts will be wrapped by yours truly.

Some last minute checks on my car revealed a screw in my left front tire. Got that taken care of today. All gassed up and ready to go. Where are we meeting again? smiling smiley

Dennis, pictures are guaranteed, especially since they are required for the iTunes offer from OWC.

BTW, is anyone coming to the Lunch good at calligraphy or just good printing?

I need a volunteer to get to McKenna's a little early (noonish) to write the name of the guests on the blank buttons as they show up.

If you can do it, please email me at mr.socalug@cox.net

Thanks for your assistance,

GeneL

I'd offer my wife to write the buttons, but even after 31 years of marriage, I still can't read her writing...

It's worse than most doctors. If I put a pen between the dog's toes, they could probably do better at writing... smiling smiley

Thanks haikuman, I think? smiling smiley

Carthaigh, it was suggested that we should do "black tie," but I vetoed that.

If you need a "code of conduct" perhaps you should stay home? ;)

As far as agenda:

arrive, get a button, get a drink, sit at our table, drink, eat, make interesting conversation, sing Happy Birthday! to the birthday Members, eat cake, get your raffle gift. Open it and be thrilled or disappointed, schmooze some more if you like, PAY YOUR CHECK!, get in your vehicle and go home.

I have no expectations so I can't be disappointed smiling smiley

How's that? Did I cover everything?

Oh yes! We'll be taking pictures to blackmail you with…hehe!

…and now go to sleep!

I'm driving from San Diego. MapQuest says that it's 102 miles. I'm representing the Southern, Southern California crew!

It's going to be real interesting to put faces to names. And yes, Gene has done an incredible job with this. We've got allmost double the posts than the New York crew.

Wakee, wakee indeed. Hope the neighbors are ready for an early lawn mowing session.

I think Carm might have you beat punkindrublik. Coming from Palm Springs, he's over 100 miles too. Only a little over 50 miles for myself.

Here's just a few of the things we hope to get answered today:

1. Is Gene really the excitable boy he portrays on the forum?
2. Is N-OS really in X-tacy?
3. Is Effin Haole really an F'n @#$%&?
4. Does Harbormaster actually own long pants?
4. Will punkindrublik be drunk in publik? (actually I already know the answer to this one)
5. Will Buzz catch one?

Something for you all to think about while the festivities are going on! I'm off to Jiffy Lube.

So is it too late to just show up?
Plans changed at the last minute. I was supposed to be out of town today.
What do you think. If I get on the road in the next twenty minutes, I should be able to make it.
I'll check back in a few.

It was a party!

There were seventeen of us whooping it up at McKenna's.

Everyone told me they had a great time and were up to do it again in the late Fall.

I just got home to find our sticky had been removed sad smiley so I PM'd Admin to put it back up, PLEASE!

There's a lot to report, including a list of Members who attended which included a couple of "new" Members.

There are lots of pictures, including some of a SPECIAL SURPRISE GUEST, who will remain a mystery until I can download the pictures from my camera and post a few.

(Please don't give away who this surprise guest is until I can get some pictures up)

The pictures will take a few hours until I recuperate and recharge my battery because I'm really whipped!

Thanks to everyone who came to the Lunch and made it a wonderful party smiling smiley

I'm bringing this over from Effin's other thread to keep this one alive. Glad Gene got the sticky put back.

Gene did an incredible job. It was sure worth the trip from San Diego. I think a great time was had by all.

Now, to answer the questions I posted earlier

1. Is Gene really the excitable boy he portrays on the forum? Yes, Yes, Yes!

2. Is N-OS really in X-tasy? So he says!

3. Is Effin Haole really an F'n @#$%&? Absolutely not! I totally got the translation of his handle wrong! Sorry Effin!

4. Does Harbormaster actually own long pants? He says he doesn't.

4. Will punkindrublik be drunk in publik? Not this time.

5. Will Buzz catch one? Maybe not literally but certainly figuratively.

wms, glad you made it too. Great pics to start with!

New York, you've got Mammoth shoes to fill!!!!

Some great door prizes too! A full system 7 box complete with floppies. I got an AppleLink package also with floppies. Even a USB Scale was won. Must have been the last one in California.

A fun afternoon and I'll say it again:
