Re: Feeler post for Richmond GTG within next month or two... (vnmvr6)

Well, I still don't know when it's going to be and on which day. It'd be nice to try and welcome "the new guy" (hehe) to Richmond, but I think it'd be better to go with the majority of free time. Everyone just say when would be a good time and we'll work from there.

lol, I can also vouch for this. I used to live downtown, decided it was time to get a new car, moved out of downtown and then bought the new car. Planned it that way.
Skorp, talked to your roomy at Advanced tonight. Hope the move goes well. I'll be around Sat morning if you guys need any help.

Re: Feeler post for Richmond GTG within next month or two... (rawlmark)

Man, moving sucks! But the new place rocks!
But now I don't have internet access in my apartment until AT&T gets off their collective asses and hooks mine up next Monday. I'm sitting at the VCU library right now, bleh...
Anyway, is anyone still up for a GTG at my place this coming weekend? Saturday would work the best, and I don't have any specific times right now, that's up to you all. This will definately have to be a BYOB event though as I lost my job last week and have to save every penny until I can get another one (or two). I've got a grill, a rotisserie, a kickass oven, PLENTY of fridge space (we've got a huge Snapple cooler like you see in 7-11 that we can fill with ice if necessary), and hopefully a dog by then, so let's see what we can get together

Post what times this weekend you'd be able to come hang out and ALSO post what weekends in the next 2 months you'd be available for a bigger GTG.
Later

i'm game for a GTG in richmond - my old stomping grounds. i'll bring my vag-com enabled laptop and cable.
i'm out of town this coming weekend, but generally around otherwise. heck, i was just in richmond the other night - stranded after the headlights in my 02 passat went out

Don't forget ODAC is having their VW Show in Richmond on May 11 - good opportunity to meet/show for a cause. We can also get a caravan together for Bug Out on May 26 in Manassas.

Re: Feeler post for Richmond GTG within next month or two... (vnmvr6)

This "only can access the net at the library thing" sucks!

I had no idea there was a VW show on the 11th here in Richmond. Do you have any more information on it?
Caravan to the BugOut would be great, I missed it last year and was pissed, I don't want to miss it this year.
Seems like some people aren't going to be around this weekend, that sucks. Who IS going to be around and when? We've gotta break in the new apartment

Re: Feeler post for Richmond GTG within next month or two... (Skorp)

our story is (me and my girl), ive been calling places to see about apts and not too many have july leases available nor can they show them until may 1st. my sis says to walk around and see whats for rent, etc...so because of this we were gonna nix the weekend trip until may 10th. if someone has some better ideas or something, or can think of another reason for us to come down, lemme know and well transform and roll out!

in fact, if we come down for the 11th, i was thinking of bringing some dub friends (a couple from NJ), so that could be the weekend to get down

Re: Feeler post for Richmond GTG within next month or two... (Skorp)

alright, so it's saturday
I talked to Jared the other day and we think that it'd be better to organize something in may that can be a little larger, most likely at his place, so let's keep this thread going and see if we can't get some people together! I've been noticing that the richmond crew is pretty unorganized, does anyone have any ideas of how we can fix that? Would a central place for contact information be good or a mailing list, something along those lines? Lemme know...

Good luck trying to get local dubbers organized - thats why I hang out with that "ground control" group. We could get a e-mail list together and set up a weekly meeting to plan going to shows and such. Going to Volkfest next week?

Re: Feeler post for Richmond GTG within next month or two... (sk8vet)

Ah christ, why me? Do you have any idea how hard it is to get these people together???

Could everyone please make this easy on me and chime in about the charity show and a BBQ afterwards, I think it'll be a great day if we can all get together for this one. I guess that means I should wash my car before then, hehe...
ATTENTION RICHMOND DENIZENS!!!: Who can show up and where can we do this BBQ?
(Today's my birthday, I'm no longer a teenager, woohoo
