Ok...trying to secure a date for the 2nd Annual Tiki Island SCMC Cobra meet. We will go with the "best date" for the majority. The plan is to have crawfish, suds, and "other food" for those with crawfish aversions. We had a blast last year...may have to book a block of rooms this year if we overflow on beds. Country breakfast served the following morning for the overnighters.

Basically, for those who did not attend last year (and we encourage EVERYONE to try to make it this year - especially if you are not a regular at the meetings!!)...here's the deal. Larry and I have a home on Tiki Island (just before Galveston) and the party is for all SCMC'ers (and maybe a few other hoodlums). Good food, good drinks, good music (um...Jimmy???), good friends, and hopefully good weather. We are directly on the bay, and Mike is our only licensed lifeguard. Kids are welcome, however mine will be with grandparents so I can RELAX. We can sleep a certain number of people comfortably, a few more if they are really friendly ;) . Maybe Keith will bring his XBOX or Playstation again, and the party runs well into the evening/early morning hours. We always encourage those partaking in adult beverages to stay the night, or we will block some rooms somewhere. Fishing and story-telling on the deck...and a gorgeous sunset. Check the pics from last year's event on the home page.

Let's see a show of hands for who is in favor of what weekend.

As the first one to respond....I get to call a bed right now!! :D

I'll be in. the date doesn't matter to me as I'll be asking off work for that whole weekend. And as always...if you need me to do anything please feel free to ask. :thumbsup:

....you also need to put in there that if you get sick you can always go over the railing. ;)

can't do it Memorial weekend AT ALL as it's opening weekend for the pools and I am 110% positive that I can't get off that weekend. Any weekend before that wouldn't be a problem for me. :thumbsup:

OK group...glad to hear from a few non-regs! We are leaning toward the 21st...hope that Andrew and Kim may be able to work that out. If anyone else is violently opposed to that date...please sound off.

Details ad nauseum to follow in another post. Thanks Steven for the suggestion of a "bug bucket" for contributions. We'll see who wants to bring what, and the gaming deal is beyond my scope of expertise so that's up to you guys. We'll probably play LRC as that was a crowd favorite, or poker. :cool: Maybe Joey will teach us all how to fish. :rotf:

Again...still waiting to hear from a few other stragglers and delinquents, and then we will set the date. Thanks for the nice comments about last year...we thoroughly enjoyed it and are honored to make this an annual event. It wouldn't have been as much fun without the great group in attendance who helped tremendously.

Git 'er done! (that was Larry)

VERY good suggestion....I was gonna get something put together, but the tip/contributions jar is a superb idea as I know the Franks go through a LOT for these things. :thumbsup:

Any weekend is as good as the next, except Memorial weekend, it will be a toss up if I can make it, very busy at work. Pick a day & I'll do my best to make it.

As I posted on another thread, I will be in St. Louis on the 14th. If that is the date then I wish everyone a good time as I will also be having fun myself watching S. Hagar. :headbang: Take pictures and I want to hear the good stories. :)

Is anyone going to the Oreilly Nats this weekend ?

Dadgummit, I just sold my Tiki vacation home a couple of weeks ago! I could have slept a bunch of y'all there. Bad timing, the things been on the market a year and a half, and nobody bit the whole time. Everybody be sure to watch your speed down Tiki drive, those officers have a low tolerance.

I'll be at the drag races Sunday with my son!

97CasperCobra
04-08-2005, 11:52 AM
let's just keep the date at the 21st. no need to change it on my account if others can't make it. I'll do my best to make it down there and see what I can do about work. :thumbsup: Thanks though.....means a lot ya'll would change it for me. :love:

I wouldn't be able to make it on the 14th.. May 4 -16th I'll be in Oklahoma working.. But if everyone desides to do the 14th I'll try hard to be there as it's been way too long since I've been in Houston to see everyone.. :thumbsup:

Do you run cars on the dyno at nite?:doubt: :nope: But then again, you might have your car on there trying to up the HP. I mean if my car only made 111 hp on the dyno, I would be working on it late as well:p .
Larry is picking on you, not Rachel;) Of course I would cry when I got beat by that car if it was only making 111hp:baby: :bawling:

OK guys...it looks like it will be the 21st of May. Please stay tuned for an official post/sticky with the particulars. Thanks to everyone who participated in the poll and posted. It's hard to please a large group...but it seems that the 21st is the most common denominator.

I'll ask my boss if I can have that Sat off....I really wanna make it and stay the night if I can as I don't want to miss out on any late night fishing. :thumbsup: If I don't get off I'll be coming down later...will let you guys know the results tomorrow. :thumbsup:

Did someone say "TUNES"?????

I'm in...

Looks like solo this time...

As I am fond of an occasional adult beverage, I also would like to stay the night...any corner with carpet out of reach of mosquitoes will work for me...

I am also quite fond of an occasional CIGAR!!!
and lengthy technical automotive forays into the land of "What If" ;)

Fishing???.... You catch em I'll eat em!!!

Last year was VERY fun for me!

I got to pretty much play what I wanted and no one seemed to mind...

Did I mention smoke cigars?.................. ALL DAY!!!

I will be there... irregardless of the proposed date.

I do believe I will bring a more adequate sun screen this time though -----> :firedevil

Marvelous fun ... although some of the LADIES did have the proverbial "deer in the headlights" gaze while monitoring some of the more technical(might as well be abstract!!) disscusions... I am soo guilty of going over board "bench racing"...

But!

I love it!!! and it is surprisingly afforable!!..........LOL

Now the food needs to be discussed!!!!













BECAUSE IT WAS SO FREAKING AWESOME LAST TIME!!!!....
Good luck beating that benchmark!!! -----> Larry and Carl <----- Holy crap they can tear it up!!!...
Edmond too <----!!!!

However, do to .... diminished liquid capitol(CHING$$$)... I will not be able to provide nearly as many cigar "COMPS" this time ... :(

BUT!! <------Geez that a big BUTT!!

JimmySidecarr will be there to represent the semi-aged(RELIC!!!) BOOMER contingent!!!..... LOL

I will be bringing ... amp... speakers(Bose)... CD player... Beers and Ales of a non-garden variety type-----> IE: DARK.. ROBUST... MALTY... NOT TOO HOPPY...ETC..

Oh and a boring Fox platform 04 Mystichrome coupe... nicely equipped with ZZ Top's greatest hits...
Steely Dan's .... "Every thing must go"(semi new)
And Ravel's Bolero!!

Also known as the quietest Cobra on the planet!!!
It wil be really quiet then because it will be parked for quite some time!!!

Jimmy :p

Jimmy, not sure whether you had a good time or not. We will try harder this year! ;)
OK group...the official post should be up by the end of the week. That's where we will nail down the particulars. Thanks to everyone offering to help out...this party is "for the people, by the people!"
