    I would like to know if anyone from our area is interested in getting together for lunch sometime in the near future. I have talked to Tom(PineIsland1) and he is in. He also has some local people that may come too. Right now I am just trying to see if anyone is interested in this. Maybe the first week or so in Feb. We could have lunch and talk plowing. Also a chance for us to meet.

    I'm in, and I could probably round up a couple of other guys from the GR area.

    Hey Todd-

    I've been going to ask you if you work up in the Alpine area? (not plowing, but your auto parts store.)

    I know a few of the guys at the 4 mile store are into plowing, and I wondered if that was you.

    Well I know there are not too many members that are close to us but if not then we will round up whoever we can and have a good time anyway.

    No, I work for a competitor, but I know the guys you are talking about very well.

    Funny thing is that when I was the assistant mgr at the store on Painfeild, those guys used to come and buy parts from me because our prices were better than what they could get them for even with their discount.;)

    Ok guys. I think we got all the locals (and you steve )

    I am open to any day to get together. Like I have anything important to do. lol

    How about Friday Feb 1st.

    I know its next Friday so it may be too soon.

    If not mabey the next Friday (8th)

    It doesn't have to be a friday either.

    If not just post what days in the next two weeks are bad and we can go from there.

    We also need input on where to go. We of course need food. But also somewhere we can sit and talk. I hope we don't all have to eat and run. I know I wont have to. lol

    I'm in for either day. Although we may all be busy on the 1st (if you beleive any of the 7 day forcasts...)

    I can suggest a couple of places on the northeast side of GR if that would work for everyone.

    By the way, greenquestlawn, were you - or one of your trucks - in the 4 mile and Dean Lake Road area (NE GR) Thursday morning? I swear I saw a truck with that logo go by when I was taking my daughter to school.

    That was me Todd!

    I am finishing a few rooms at my moms house. She lives on Emerald lake(I think) off from Elmer, off Dean Lake road. That is weird that you saw me. lol

    I am still trying to figure out a day and such. We are all available on Fridays exept one so I will see what I can do.

    Give me a day or so.

    It may be to soon this week so I think we will shoot for next.

    We can meet on Plainfield, seems like that may be in the middle of everyone. (well coopersville if you count me..lol)

    Actually I am working at my mothers house which is right off Plainfield so I am in the area everyday

    I will let you know the exact location.

    Let me know if you can make it.:D

    Sounds like a winner. Pizza's good for me, Fred's is a good spot, otherwise Cheers is a good spot for a burger and beer and I know they could accomadate a group of us with no trouble.

    Greenquestlawn, did you get the private message I sent you? I live real close to where you are working...
