Just so everyone knows, I have begun researching some other locations (restaurants, parks, etc.) for our monthly meetings. I will list the facilities, pros/cons, and info about each in this thread as I find out the information. If you have any other ideas, please post them here. If you've already contacted them, let me know what they said. I'll add this information here (in this first post).

These places aren't limited to just restaurants, and they're not limited to only adults (if you want to bring your kids along). I'm open to ANY ideas you may have that you think will be fun, safe, semi-local, and (preferably) OC-friendly.

Thanks for playing..... :D

EDIT: The "history" of locations is now located in a separate Sticky.

You can probably add Texas Roadhouse in Bear to the list. Good food, pretty good prices and I have OC there twice so far with no issues.

Usually the dinner meetings are mid week from 6:30 til closing. Once the weather warms up we tend to have them on a Saturday or Sunday at one of the members homes. Those will go from noon or 1:00 until whenever. The ones we had at my house were a pool party and would last until midnight. That gives anyone wanting to come a chance even if working part of the day.

If you read through the monthly meetings you'll find that we try to accommodate as many as possible. We are getting more members down state and encourage that they have meetings in that area. Hopefully we'll have a day at the beach this year.

It's also possible to meet some of the guys for a day at the range. Just check out that section. ;)

In addition to what stephpd said, some members will just meet up amongst themselves for lunch/dinner, for playtime w/ their kids, for watching football or a movie, etc.

So, while DELOC holds "official" monthly meetings (usually on weekdays after work, or on weekends during the summer), that doesn't mean that members can't make their own arrangements or get together at other times!

Use the PM system here (or the telephone) to set up a get-together anytime, any place, w/ anyone. We're all friends here.

If you'd like to get on the DELOC Contact List, so people can contact you other ways, just PM me your info. I'll update the list and distribute it only to members already on the list.

Have you decided on a meeting place for November yet? Or did I miss something, which is quite possible - haven't totally figured out how to manuver this site yet.

Beez (M Bryan Rice) Hope real names are OK.
