A simple ya if you want to attend a group CN supper event after the event. If we keep the chatter to the other thread it will be easier to count mouths. :)

Me!

Not yet. I think this weekend we need to create a pole with four or five choices to see what folks like. I'd like to have it nailed down before next weekend.

OK, so let's assemble some options we want in the Supper Poll:

(1) Old Pueblo Grill

(2) Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse

So what others would several of us want to see on the list? I propose they have to be proposed and seconded by someone else to be in the Poll.

We'll also need to nail down a time. Seems a bunch of CNers are planning to hit one of the star parties, and considering the drive time to CAC, they'll probably want to eat on the early side (4:00 p.m. -ish). I'd much rather eat early with everyone than exclude anyone due to scheduling constraints. Those not going to one of the star parties can always stay and socialize over adult beverages... ;)

Side note: It's probably going to be easier to get everyone seated together the earlier we eat. Saturday night + U of A homecoming + tourist season may make later seatings hard to come by.
Heck - if it's too early for some, we can always call it a really late lunch; those of us not hitting the star parties can always meet up later for an 11:00 p.m. "breakfast"... :grin:

That's a thought, but on the other hand, what about being able to stay for the length of the event on Saturday? And it also depends on the location- it'll take a little while to get over to Pinnacle Peak.

Point made.

We may want to make the "big" group event lunch - but even then, there's really no available "window" in the speakers' schedules.

My day is pretty much open, so I'll go along with whatever the group decides on - although I'll put a vote in for OPG, as it's a fairly short drive from ASAE.

OPG sounds good to me as well. We can work on something more perfectly integrated into the schedule for next year. In the meantime, we'll have our tags and may just do a pick-up lunch or whatever sounds like fun.

Hi Rich,

We're getting our threads criss-crossed. :rainbow: I'm making the same post to the Star Party thread.

It looks to me like most CN folks want to get together Sat Eve for dinner and socializing. At or after 5pm seems to be the best time for a dinner rendezvous. And, there are just a few folks wanting to go to TAAA-CAC star party that night. I'm glad to host a group to the star party Saturday night. I remember someone said they were going to dark site on Friday and another said Sunday. I can't speak for them about "hosting a group"...but, remind folks, there are star parties other nights.

Let's poll folks for these 2 scenarios, and plan to get together at Old Pueblo Grill. Those going to star party can rendezvous earlier, say 3:30 - 4:30, have a bite, and as the "in town" group starts arriving around 5pm, everyone will have time to meet and greet. The star party group could begin heading out about 5:30 as the in town group is gathering for their dinner. Two groups, one place, a little overlap, and from there, "the night is ours." The star party group can head south on Alvernon to I-10 and be on their way to the dark site quickly. OPG is 10 minutes from downtown convention center, and 10 minutes from I-10. I would probably head back to Tucson around 2am. But, I'm flexible.

I'll be glad to contact OPG, see if they can accommodate us with these scenarios and I'll get a reservation if this works for everyone. If they have a good idea what we want to do, we won't hit some unexpected snag. I have a star party reservation for 1 car, 4 people and so far just one passenger (looking forward to seeing you, Shneor) and room for 2...

Paul

That's probably the most feasible plan presented. :waytogo:
Count me in for the 5pm seating.
