Both new and old. It seems we have assembled a few folks on this forum that live in or are accessible to Charlotte quickly. How about we assemble a get together, drink some beer and listen to some killer tunes?

What say y'all?

If you are nearby, please post in this thread. We will make a date that is convenient to everyone and throw a small Charlotte style bash. Good eatin' will be provided to boot. ;)

    Sounds good if'n I am off work.
    I was out for awhile, went back, let go on the same day, and should start my new ( older gig ) by Monday.
    So right now, hours unknown.

    But, nonetheless, sounds good.

    Yes we are. I just say Charlotte, NC because very few folks nationwide knows where Rock Hill is.

    Trey's pad will be ready here shortly [We hope] and we were thinking about having a multiple location get together. One location Friday, another Saturday and another Sunday maybe. If Trey's not done anytime soon, I'll just host a get-together here at my pad.

    Sunday may be good for me. If not, Saturday....early in the day as I have company coming over that evening for some grillin' on the Barbie. I'll get in touch with that incredibly ugly Lightman dude and see if "it" wants to come as well. Trey most likely has to work. Mike...can you make it?

    My current schedule is unruly, as I just took over a new center
    ( new/old job )( manager at an auto center ).
    I am Mon-Fri 6:30am - 9:15 pm, Sat 6:30am - 8:15pm, and Sunday 7:30am - 6:30pm.
    If it is after those closing hours I can join in. Otherwise, I will have to wait until next time around.
    After I get a handle on cleaning it up and ensuring everyone is doing what they should be doing, I will have better hours. A week, maybe two. Hopefully not more than that, as I am too old for that schedule for too long.

    We will see how the crew comes along.
    Right now, my store is hideously dirty and the crew needs to be doing their thing to get it back to snuff.
    Announce a time, and hopefully I can join in.
    If not this time, we all like an occasional drink, I assume, there will always be another time soon.
    Sunday I plan on revamping the tire room, only 1,889 tires to organize, not bad.
    ( 6 pounds of sugar in a 5 pound bag thing )
    ha.

    I should be able to escape at times. Crew is coming along well. Clean up and crew need more work, but sales are climbing enough so corporate will look the other way slightly, but not for long on clean up side of it. Long enough for a drink or three though ;>)

    Let me know when and where.
    Got my stereo back, tested briefly tonight with some Stevie Ray, gotta try something newer and check the sound quality jump, but so far so good there.
    60 is my new max.
    yeah right, but most of the time anyway, only brief spurts of near max, a song say.

    We are still awaiting word from NotaSuv. It's looking right now like it will be tomorrow afternoon sometime. If it ends up being today, I can only make a social appearance as I have way too many items left on the "Honey-do" list to do otherwise. Tomorrow, Russ and I are wide open and the invitation will be open to slide over to my pad for some tunes afterward for those that would like to make it.

    I hear through the grapevine that the beer is coldest around 3:00. I'm open for anytime as T-bones is only about 20 minutes away and I'll be free all day. I used to play pool tournaments next door at the Knothole so I know exactly where it is.

    Tom I peed all over your right front tire on that chevy of yours.

    I peed on it, in the wheel, on the brakes, the whole nine yards. When you stop now it will squeak.

    You can thank me later.

    PEACE
