Anxious to see all the new video from this years season, I'll be hosting another gathering on Saturday, July 10 at my home at 13160 Eastridge Dr. on the west side of Moore (technically it's in Oklahoma City).
You can arrive any time after 7 and stay as late as you wish.
We'll be providing some snacks and refreshments. We also will be grilling burgers, dogs, etc. outside.
There will be a few TV's set up to play your chase tapes or DVDs, please have them edited and not too long. I'm planning on setting up a video projector in the garage again for some life size tornados and Shane Adams playing some Atari games. Bring your pictures, too.
For other distractions I also have a full size arcade machine that plays most every arcade game made.

I'm open to any new ideas you may have to make this a fun night for everyone.

Please post a reply here if you are planning on coming so I can gauge what supplies I need to get.

Directions to the July 10 gathering.


Can't make it? Live, streaming video of the event will be at http://www.OKstorms.com/webcam
 
I'll be there for sure, my girlfriend and Angie Norris get back from TN on the 8th or 9th; they might be too road-lagged to attend, but I'll do my best to get them up as well.
 
Well, I think it's about time I finally get a chance to meet everyone besides the few that I have come across out in the field. JR, I look forward to it.
 
No can do for me, unfortunately. My parents are coming into town that weekend, so I won't be able to join the party. Don't have too much fun w/o me!
 
Sounds like a plan! Marking down on my schedule. Let me know if you want us to bring anything. I'll gladly put in a few $$$ for chips etc.

oops

Well on second thought I don't think I can make it. I forgot it was my anniversary. I don’t think that would go over real well with the wife. I’m not sure I would live that one down. So Mick were did you take your wife for your fifth year anniversary. I took her to a storm chasing get together.

It’s cool with me but I know she will not share the same opinion. Besides she prettier than you ugly storm chasers anyway. LOL.

Have a great time. I know you will…

Whipped! I can hear that whip a crackin now!!!

I'll be there.
 
Driving from Denver

Alright!! Can't wait to see everyone out there. I'm driving straight from Denver, but oh well. I needed to take a trip out into the Plains anyway. This super-boring, benign weather hasn't given me much of a chance (or excuse) to get out and feel the energy! If anyone in the Denver area, or further south or east, wants to hitch a ride with me, feel free to send me a message on stormtrack OR e-mail me. I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee 2002 model with space for a few passengers, even with all the equipment. Let me know ASAP.
See everyone soon,
Jon

Ha Ha! Very funny Chris!

Damnit, I saw that Mickey had posted last and thought he was gonna say he'd be able to go after all :evil:

You know I really haven't asked her if it would be cool with her, but considering she is not into chasing AT ALL and it would be our anniversary I can almost say there is a 99.99% chance she wouldn’t go for it. If it were any other time I’d say “ Women I’m going!â€￾ lol! Jk. I’ll see what she says, but the next time you see me, Shane, and I am blind out of my good eye you know why.

Change in My plans

Well, with the way the forecasts are working out for this weekend, it looks like I've got quite a trip ahead of me! It's been a while since I saw 5,500+ CAPES over an area of solid mid-70s dew points and -12 to -14 LIs with just a strong shortwave & passing warm front to fuel my hopes. Then again, with such incredible instability maybe that's all we'll need to get things firing on Thurs & Friday? Still can't believe those forecast soundings for Grand Island--CAPES over 7,000 j/kg & 85% chance for supercells. With all this chasing coming up, I'm not positive I'll make it to the party on Saturday, but I'll definitely try, since all the action shifts up north by then.
Otherwise, see y'all at the party!
Jon
 
Sounds like fun. Through some dogs on the grill, I'm on my way!

Could someone in Norman swing by and pick me up? I'm at Chatauqua & OK9, Post Oak Apartments. Let me know in PM, otherwise I need to start walking in about an hour :D
 
Shane,

I'm gonna be in town after all...I had to make a run to Fort Worth cause they thought I had something seriously wrong with me but luckily everything is ok, so I'll be back in time to go to the thing. I can pick you up if you need me to.
 
Moon,

Glad to hear everything's okay with ya

And yes, I would appreciate a lift to JR's
 
Thanks for a great time JR and Kathy. Once again my wife and I thouroughly enjoyed ourselves. Got to meet a few new faces that I know on here. The webcam was great... and everyone's videos were awesome... mother nature spoiled us on a few days this year.

Aaron
 
The webcam worked just fine! :thumbup:

I nearly soiled myself when I laid eyes on TAP4! Wherever did you aquire such a technical marvel? With an F-6 setting even! Will wonders of nanotechnology ever cease?!? :D
 
Thanks to JR & Kathy for another wonderful shindig. Thanks to everyone who came for the fun videos and conversations. Thanks to Moon for the ride up and Scott for the ride home!!!
