    It's long over due. It's been on my mind and I think we need to try and organize a late afternoon lunch or early dinner during the weekend. :scratch Here's what I was thinking:

    City: Calhoun
    Date: 6/26/10
    Time: 5:00pm
    Location: Dub's BBQ

    <iframe marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&client=firefox-a&ie=UTF8&q=Dubs+BBQ+calhoun,+ga&fb=1&gl=us&hq=Dubs+BBQ&hnear=Calhoun,+GA&cid=0,0,6341881644091699531&ei=RC8YTL2KO8KAlAel_YjwCw&ved=0CBMQnwIwAA&ll=34.497291,-84.951999&spn=0.006295,0.006295&iwloc=A&output=embed" frameborder="0" height="350" scrolling="no" width="425"></iframe>
    <small>View Larger Map</small>

    I figure this would be a good location to meet for Dirty South, Fido, MB, Brown and a few others. Maybe some folks from Chattanooga? Maybe a visit from full monte? :dunno

    What do you folks think?

    Send thoughts. :1drink

    Sounds good except possibly the date.

    My 13 year-old niece is on the waiting list for a liver transplant and there is a charity event that evening that I really need to attend.

    Let me double-check that date with my mom today.

    I've heard good things about Dub's BBQ.

    I'd be all over it but Dub's food is horrible. I worked in Calhoun for 8 years and had to eat there a few times with the guys at work, and I had a hard time holding it down. :puke1

    I have it from a certain DOG that this place was pretty good. :dunno

    I'd love to try and have a dinner every three months in hopes that new folks would show up. The thought being to do it in a few different cities over the year to get allow others to ride/drive over.

    :dg

    Will Mrs. Turner be joining you? This isn't reserved for just ADV riders only....

    Since it's only a couple of miles from my house, I guess I don't have any excuse for not showing up.

    I'm in. :D
