  • Saturday banquet

    I haven't seen mention of the Saturday banquet. Are we on again this year?

    There will be no official 'banquet' this year.

    We are hoping to substitute a group dinner similar to our typical Friday evenings.

      It's the best part of the weekend. The food was great, hanging out with the LOD people, and enjoying BADSAX making beautiful music, was fantastic. So I guess, no raffle, or awards, or fun. The "official Banquet" was my highlight of last years show.

        Well that's a bummer, it improved over the last few years. Anyway, there are lots of choices around town, I hear there's a new BBQ place next door to Market Cross Pub. In any case, if this is what's happening a place needs to be chosen and reservations made.

        By the way,what's with all the little boxes with ?? in them under our names?

          I wouldn't necessarily go that far...

            The problem is the costs kept escalating while everything else went down. The event used to make a few bucks for the club but quickly turned into a cash drain. Once new hotel management came along, it simply became prohibitively expensive and the costs were non-negotiable for all intents and purposes.

            I believe they are a placeholder for the user's "reputation". It is one of a myriad of little details that will need to be addressed with the new software.

              Thanks for the info. I guessed it was about the $$, just like everything else, they all want more.

                John,
                We're doing FRIDAYS on Saturday at 6:00 pm with maybe a dozen people. It's our normal dinner. If you Guys choose to do this also, I suggest making the reservation Friday.
