Mid Winter Gathering of the East Coast Compac-o-nauts 2018
« on: November 05, 2017, 07:13:09 PM »
Ladies and gents!! It's gonna be that time again soon so let's get the ball rollin', shall we? I'm proposing a mid January gathering somewhere central to all of us- but within 5 minutes crawling time from my casa!! Maybe somewhere near the NJ shore this time?!
Let's hear your ideas, mates!! Looking forward to seeing both the veterans and newbees!!

Well this sounds like a great idea! Since we are also looking at dates for CBMWG maybe we should consider the two holiday weekends for both so folks have an extra day to travel. That would be 1/13 and 2/17. Wuddaya think?

LOL...All this talk of three day weekends, the only 3 day weekends for a construction worker on LBI is Memorial Day and Labor Day. These others you speak of I do not know. :/

It's not about inventing one, it's about getting to take it. :/

Though I'm not an oyster fan, I was told the oyster bar in Manahawkin had stepped up it's game with a large variety of local bays. Can you row home from there??!!

Great Kevin.  That's pretty close to me.  I like it.

Reign: Yes, the Old Causeway Inn has an incredible selection of fresh oysters...but if I went there too often I'd need to sell my boat to pay for 'em!! Nah, I can't row home from anywhere. I live 9 miles inland 80 feet above sea level!
Kev: Is this the place where we had that waitress named Legs?

I know right where the Wharfside is. Close enough for me to drive up and scope out in person.
Now, we need a headcount of sorts.

Looks like the place in Lavallette closes after the Holidays. The Wharfside is great and water front location.

That location looks good.  As usual we will plan a weekend getaway around the gathering.  If the weather allows we could do some exploring on LBI and Suzie could actually see Barnegat Bay, the ocean, Tice's and local attractions. Sounds good. 
Do we have any dates in mind yet?
