NE/IA Get Together POSSIBLE NEW DATE AUG 14

mrobinson

Who's up for it? I was talking to Randy the other night and there are alot of chasers in this area and hasn't been a get together in a long time. I'm willing to have it at my house in Southwest Omaha if there is enough interest. Looking at weekend in early Aug.

Interest?
 
Count Me In...

Mel,

You can count me in. Trouble is I'm working on Saturdays now (6 a.m. to 2 p.m.) but if it's held late enough I can make it up from Lincoln NE. Looking forward to meeting you and the other storm chasers.

Party time

I wish I could make it up there but that's a little too far for me to go at this time - I'm thinking next year I'm going to make a trip out west, Gotta go to Ohio and see a good friend of mine also.
 
Well, provided you don't hate me for my defense of Tony Stewart (or for any other arrogant thing I've said), I'd certainly be willing to have an OMA get together. Heck, I'll even be so kind as to let everyone buy me beer! :)

Regards,

Mike

HAHA you are the most generous man I know :laughing5:

Goodwill has nothing on me!

Ok, I'll bend and chip something in. If you want to take the overall initiative in getting the ball rolling on this thing, let us know oh fearless leader. I'll do what I can to help out.

Regards,

Mike
 
I'll be there unless something chasewise comes up. Might be there anyway, as my tires(which I can't afford right now) might dictate how much more driving I do. Then again I can always just charge them. I should be there. I will bring MikeD a beer.
 
At least I'll have some video to bring, albeit very amateurish. I forgot how much work it actualy takes to get good video; Like I told H yesterday, been five years since I've pick a video camera up.

Regards,

Mike
 
I can be there. I've got some Pics and really look forward to meeting everyone. Let me know if there is anything I can bring or help with.
 
Melissa,
I'd definitely like to get together with you guys some weekend in early August! I haven't attended a chaser gathering for some time (since the National Chaser Convention in Denver), and I haven't seen you guys since our Iowa chase earlier this season, back in late May, I think, (man, seems so long ago already!) Chase season never lasts long enough, dammit! :angry1: so I'll wait 'til you guys decide on the date.
FYI: either Friday or Saturday works best for me, but my schedule's flexible.
 
I'd be interested in goin down and meeting everyone. I've talked to you guys enough on here its about time to put some faces to the discussions. If newbies to the stormtrack site are invited, tell me what to do to help!

Hey I saw you on June 10th in North Platte didn't I?

Sorry I was so short but you caught me as we were leaving to catch that Big Springs stovepipe and well ya know.. priorities priorities :lol:

of course they are...

I just realized my VCR was toast so if someone can bring one for tapes that would be sweet.

Any specific date??
 
Mel,
Wow, through all that rush & frenzy at the truckstop in Nebraska you still remember our pass-by --I'm impressed! :wink:
Anyway, I guess I prefer a Saturday (perhaps the 7th of August) to have this get together, since most people probably won't make it Friday unless it's late which kinda defeats the purpose. Since for many of us this isn't just a local trip (especially for me), we'll need some time to drive back, assuming everything works out, so having this thing Sunday would be a bad idea also. Just my thoughts though...
Have a blast chasing today, for you (Mel) and anyone else in NE!! Wish I was up there!

Tornado Vids

Hey MEL,

Since someone is bringing a VCR, I can bring along my tornado tape video collection. I got four of 'em, including one about the May 3, 1999 F-5 Oklahoma City tornado, "Terror in the Heartland". That would provide filler time and entertainment between chasers' videos.

Also is any body bringing along board games? I thought it would be fun to make up teams and play games like "Taboo" or "Guesstures". Any other ideas?

OBTW, what is the planned time for the get-together on Aug. 7 ?? Keep in mind I have to work on that day until 2 p.m. Then I'm free :D
 
I think everybody is planning to camp out in front of Mel's for several days (commune style), then crash inside all weekend, eat all the CocoPuffs (you DO have CocoPuffs, I hope) and steal the toilet paper before leaving. :)

Actually, good question. What time is the opening ceremonies and first pitch?

Regards,

Mike
 
Guess it'll be a two dayer now, what, with the Mike H Film Festival. Please condense your video down to about 8 or nine hours Mike. :)

j/k

Regards,

Mike
 
Why not gun for a one or two hour "start" (say, 3pm-5pm) and have a icebreaker/mixer during that period. When that period's up, roll the tapes!

Regards,

Mike
 
thats good for me... what about food/drinks?
I'll need a RSVP or something so I know what and how much to get
 
I'll bring several cans of boiled peanuts. Not as good as fresh boiled, but a decent substitute none the less.

BTW Mel, what are "house rules?" For instance, I'm sure no one wants to see me get excited watching one of H's videos, rip my clothes off and start bowing to him as I chant, "You are the master!" :)

Regards,

Mike
