2017 PWD Dinner @ Brookfield National Meet

Recommended Posts

Since not everyone will be attending the PWD After Tour, we need to start a thread on our National Meet Dinner. 

 

We like to have this earlier in the week rather than later so we can meet and greet and know each other better as the weekend rolls out.

 

Planning for Thursday evening, July 6th.  I have feelers out to several establishments right now.  Stay tuned.

 

What I need is a headcount to help with space/venue planning. 

 

Please respond with planned attendance and number.

 

(Mr. Moderator, if you would be so kind as to pin this one at the top if it starts to drop.  Thank you!)

 

My Thanks in advance.

We would plan to attend, assuming no conflicts. Right now, we don't know how many of the five of us will be in Wisconsin. The young'uns may have jobs they won't be able to get away from.

Mark & Rinda Shaw are planning to be there & will need back seats for the PWD AfterTour.

 

Want to ride as "cargo"?  Do not have any back seats.

Assuming my health continues and stays strong, Bea and I will be at dinner.  Depending on my situation, I am not yet sure of bringing the '32, so may have only a two-seater for the tour.  I will stay aware of this thread, otherwise I would be glad to give Mark and Rinda a ride, unless the prefer the "cargo" option.

Cargo, or a Heil seat, a la 2006 in Mark's truck?

Maybe we can get a different ride each day....  It was a hoot when we did that on the HCCA Gas & Brass Tour years ago. 

 

It's a great way to get to know others in the club....

Terry,

 

Yes, Finn is planning on joining Cristine and me in Brookfield, as well as the After Tour.  His calendar is filling up, but we are on it when I asked him.

 

He really does love to ride in the Buick.  Handy to have too, if anyone needs a tow.

Our Thursday PWD Dinner venue will be Parkside 23  2300 Pilgrim Square Drive  Brookfield, WI

 

Parkside 23 is 2.6 miles north of the host hotel

We will have our own dinning room and plan to start at 5:00 pm.

 

We will have a condensed menu to order from.  The restaurant has very good reviews, a large side room for us and is close.

 

The PWD Meeting will be at the hotel site prior to dinner and we will hand out easy directions there and then head to dinner.

 

Please bring cash as the only restriction is they would not do individual tabs for our group, so we will have to appoint a banker.  Bar service is also available and you will be able to run a tab for that and charge it too.  Funny how that works.

 

Lots of room, so keep those posts coming with attendees.  This is a nice place and will have Mama smiling.

Brian,

 

I have looked over the published menu and the photos of the restaurant, including the "farm fresh" vegies and seasonings.  Looking forward to this dinner.

 

I think we need to put together soon something for the folks not on the forum, by means of a newsletter.  I will send you a separate e-mail.

Agree John.

 

Have the communications team do a cut and paste of a couple of the posts on this thread and send out to the distribution.

 

Same thing for the After Tour hotel update.

 

Thx

Here is a cut and paste from the 2017 Meet Post that was just updated last week. 

 

Take note of Thursday with respect to our 3:00 - 4:30 PWD Meeting at the host hotel.  Our PWD Dinner (as outlined above) will follow this at 5:00 (I added it to the schedule below).

 

Note the 7:00 pm General Membership Meeting too on Thursday night.

 

Reminder to contact me if you have not done so already for the PWD Dinner.  This update post will also put it to the top of the post heap and be a reminder for those who have yet to contact me for the PWD Dinner.

 

Thx!

It would be best to put it in  your profile so when we meet you at the dinners, forum meeting, and pre-war activities we will be able to put a name with a face. :)   Welcome to the pre-war world.  ;)
