    In case anyone missed the news flash sent to your bat phones, the First Natick Meetup of 2019 is ON.

    This event is open to
    ALL NES'rs (almost all our functions are open only to paid Members), so you can get a taste of what you're missing.

    We're going to meet at B&K Sales at ~6PM and get to the restaurant at 7:15PM.

    Get-together at B&K Sales, 32 Washington St., Natick on Thursday, July 25th, starting ~6:00PM. B & K Sales LLC. Natick, MA. We hang out there until 7:00PM and then head over to John Harvard’s Brewery & Ale House in Shopper's World, Framingham

    Framingham, MA - John Harvard's Brewery & Ale House

    Feel free to post if you'll join us, but dropping in at the last minute or even stopping by for a short while is fine too. Bring cash or credit card to pay at the restaurant if you join us for dinner and drinks (we do separate checks).

    If you'll be joining us at John Harvard’s Brewery & Ale House but not B&K, please let me know (by posting in this thread before 6:00PM or email me at [email protected]) so we can give the restaurant a proper head-count and we can all sit together.

    NOTE: John Harvard’s Brewery & Ale House is in the left rear corner (from Rte. 9) of Shopper's World and to the left of AC Moore and DSW Shoes.


    (most of the above plagiarized from Len's last invite, so any misspellings or clumsy turns of phrase are his fault)

    Below are some past attendees. There are a bunch of people that don't post in and come anyhow, but I have no way to contact, so if you know of anyone that would like to come, whisper quietly in their ear or something.

    I’ve never been to one because of conflicts with kid’s sports... but I may actually be able to make it this summer.

    ...for dinner at least. It's difficult for me to make it to the gun shop because of the
    time I get out of work and the traffic...

    Thanks @namedpipes for the mention. Might have otherwise missed the post. GTG would be great. I really miss seeing everyone at the Monadnock shoots! 23rd is good for me. If location changes, anything similar distance or closer to Worcester works.

    Trying to think of who I have seen at the shoots (or indicating interest) and isn't in the above list. I'll take a crack at it but am probably forgetting someone obvious:

    @Radtekk
    (Lip still on the forum?)
    @MSant
    @one-eyed Jack
    @Mxracer239y
    @bawannabuck
    What's Zeuss' handle? Guess we ask @Yazz to bring him?

    Ok. Sounds like there's enough even with bailouts there'll be a few people.

    I'll make some calls and make sure the facilities are still willing to accept us.

    @Len-2A Training is there anyone in particular to ask for at the restaurant or just whoever answers the phone?

    Looks like it's shaping up to be a good one. Unfortunately it's a little far away now that I've escaped the PRM. But I do get down there from time to time and if I happen to be in the area on the 23rd I drop by.

    It's been so long I might not recognize most of you.

    Pipes, what about Sean, our favorite veterinarian? Is he going?

    I just googled around looking for a vet named Sean, but no dice. I did (no lie!) find a vet named Cat.

    Credit for thinking of this actually goes to Mr. Flare. We drew straws on who would start the thread.

    @namedpipes send me an Email off my website or if you still have my card and I'll fill you in on details.

    Regrettably Tuesdays don't work for me anymore. Brian graduated with his Master's degree so unless he's going for that law degree he mentioned to me, Tuesdays may work for him. You have to check with him to see what night he's open late and don't rely on his website regarding this.

    In the past we've been able to do separate checks and credit cards are fine.

    Oh yes, I forgot to mention in my Email to you. When you make the reservations at JH's ask them to tell the waitperson to issue separate checks. Thus each person can pay cash or cc.

    Ok. So everyone, per some offline comments from Len, I have a couple calls to make, and the date could change to suit B&K's hours. I'll post the firm details once I speak with them.

    i would like to, very much! but, i'm afraid i'm a better keyboard kommando than social butterfly. since we don't have to reserve a place, my bulky frame may darken the doorway unannounced, just got to blast my ass off the old man chair. thanks for including me in the list!

    Game, but the car's in the shop, and from time to time I have meeting conflicts.

    Watching thread, will respond when date is set.

    I still need to confirm the date, but this is definitely on. Even if half of y'all back out there'll be plenty of people in attendance.

    I recommend you guys check out GFA arms right down the street... if your going to be in the area.

    I enjoyed the dinner the once(or Maybe twice) I went.

    I just don’t want to commit to coming then flake.
    I’m really hoping to be coming to a sNES shoot sometime in the near future. I got my fingers crossed.
