Hamsexy is like peeing your pants.
Everyone can see it but only you feel its true warmth.
But then you get old and pee in your pants while wizzing around in you hamabout.

I had no idea if anyone would be able to make it so I didn't post it here :baby:


The new facility should be better than the old one, although I never thought it was bad (except for paying to park).

Yeah well, I was going to wait until Saturday to post it but I was feeling a little, premature tonight. Just give me 5 minutes and a beer and I'll be alright.

Agreed with Mong on old location..... I will try to make this one, will have to check calendar. Of course, the new place might be good too. Any place named Cannabis Arena can't be all bad. Ray Ray will definitely be there. Have you made hotel reservations yet Ray Ray? :baby:

It's about 10 miles further away than the old location but unless something at work comes up I will be there Saturday.

I sent this link to the good Father
http://www.macados.net/menu.htm


I've been there a few times and they have enough different sandwiches to choose from. It's located in a huge mall so that is one thing to consider but there is enough places to eat in Concord adjacent to the interstate. I might not know until Friday if I can do lunch or if I have to bail by 1pm to be back at work by 3pm.


The joys of relying on an old fart (no offense Uncle Tom) :baby:


I'm going to check with a few guys who work in Concord for recommendations for lunch as I am only there once or twice a year. They have a Carrabba’s but that might a little too romantic for a bunch of guys....

Well, it looks like Saturday is a go, details to follow. Mong, my cell number has not changed and we may be riding in a hammy free vehicle to Charlotte, but will try to remember to bring the shirt pocket Standard - Marantz HT anyway. More details to follow..........

You say that because you were between me and Father Jack :baby:



I noticed all Steak and Als have gone out of business but some recon for the Spartenburg hamfest shows that they have reopened as Steak and Spirits in that location....but that's for another thread.

I for one miss a once or twice per year visit to Steak and Ale.... great grub and a reasonable price.

Anyway, looks like KG4CGC, K4RXI and I will be headed for Charlotte/Concord Saturday morning bright and early. Will be monitoring 147.420 simplex on the shirt pocket HT.

Our normal meet up place has been boarded up and gone the way of the Do-Do. There is a Bojangles at the same exit if you wish to meet there or if you prefer the Micky D's at the Pilot at exit 35 should be good for some lulz.

It was great to see everyone again.
Didn't see anything that I HAD to have but I have another ticket stub to go on the wall.
