Will be in northern NJ the weekend of 4/27-29 and would like to see as many of you guys as possible for a beer and / or dinner. Will be stationed in Sussex county so a preferable meeting town of Sparta( Rick B will be on hand) or nearby( Lk Hopatcong ) are options.

The wife dictates that Fri 4/27 is the only available night to gather with my snowjournal associates.

Hoping to meet JMaul, any of the non SJ jersey boys, trackbiker, jaytrem, Njskibabe, Alex and whoever else would be interested in ski related discussion.

Krogh's in Lk Mohawk comes to mind, Alex has a great place he frequents on Lk Hopatcong, and I'd be receptive to a pub or grille near Snow Bowl, Craigmeur, Great Gorge , or wherever works best for any of you.

If there is a ski area still operating within a 3 hour drive of NNJ still operating I could be persuaded to get a few last turns in Friday daytime.

Who's available?

    It will be great to see everyone again. I can meet up with you around 6:00/6:30pm.

    Ideas of where to meet:

    Grasshopper 2 - Route 23 Oak Ridge area

    George Inn - Route 94 - McAfee (just down the road from Mountain Creek South

    Let me know where.

    Waiting for a little more response, Jaytrem is about 80% in, Rick is " planning on it", Alex is in, Babe and I in.
    Still waiting for JMaul, trackbiker and others to commit.

    My wife will be Hamburg visiting her best friend so the George Inn would be ideal with potential for a Playboy club gander and Great Gorge stopby, but Stone Water near the old yacht club was where we had a summer house fifty years ago on Springbrook road so it has a sentimental pull, along with being near Snow Bowl for a potential visit ahead of the gathering.

    I extended a personal invitation to Newman thinking he resided near Hidden Valley NJ and find out he's hanging out skiing with Bob Dylan in Duluth.

    Any and all Snowjournalist's are invited

    If overcrowded Friday nights and $15 hamburgers are sentimental, this is the place.  But it is less than ten minutes away, so if Alex is buying, count me in!

    You can paddle across the lake and get cheap drinks at Mason Street.

    Mason street is great but it's your AMEX so you pick.

    I should be able to make this. 

    Will be nice to put some faces to the names.

    Try to not make the venue further north and west, please?
    You ski because even if you don't do it well, it's still a blast....
