Very exciting and ritzy venue this year. (Thank you GB.) We have the induction and welcoming of new Members Neoblackdog and Bobjudy to celebrate. The secret handshake and passwords will be conveyed at this time.

Don't forget, this is a Black tie and evening wear event. No ripped Blue jeans and T shirts will be allowed this year. (You know who you were.)

Please be sure to get back to the organizing Committee with your dinner choice for yourself and your guest in a timely manner.

Thank you in advance, we look forward to another great event.

Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁

    Does prime rib count as a 'steak' choice? If so then I'd like to invite Nanuq907 as a guest chef. 
  • mark christianmark christian Forums Admins, Member, Moderator Posts: 22,846 ******

    Most esteemed Member. You and Nunn's invitation should be arriving by courier shortly. You Sir, are the guest of honor and a short speech would be appreciated.


    Remember guys and girls. Please get back to the Organizing Committe with your dinner selections. (Steak, Salmon or Chicken.) In a timely manner. Great Guns will be Catering. (Mark, you might want to bring a Food Tester.) 😉

    You got a promote for that! 
  • KenK/84BravoKenK/84Bravo Member Posts: 7,372 ✭✭✭✭

    I'm sorry Neo. The Catering Service has already been booked. (Great Guns)

    I also do not believe Nannuq907 has the rank necessary in order to be present when the Secret Handshake and Passwords are conveyed. 🤐

    As with ChrisStreet, 3 Star Members are being sought to "Volunteer" and park vehicles. Any 3 Star Members wishing to volunteer, please contact the Organizing Committee. Your "Service" will not go unnoticed on future selection to the coveted 4th Star ranking and Selection Committee.

    Thank you in advance.

  • KenK/84BravoKenK/84Bravo Member Posts: 7,372 ✭✭✭✭

    Great Guns was a shoo-in for this years Catering choice, due in no small part to his offer to hold our Event on the Private Yacht of the Sheik who is currently in the Mideast. It was not inexpensive to rent this Vessel, so if you have indicated you will attend, please show up.

    The exact location has been withheld due to Security concerns, and some veiled threats we have received from some disgruntled 1, 2 and 3 Star Members, as well as the constant threat from Banned Members. (As normal, all Moderators and Admins. will have their own Private Security details.)

    Please do not attempt to approach a Moderator or Admin. without first making contact with the Head of their Security Detail. (We do not want a repeat of last years tragedy.)

     (We do not want a repeat of last years tragedy.)

    You were warned ahead of time that the danger of moving a guest to another room was the same as moving their thread to another sub forum. 
  • KenK/84BravoKenK/84Bravo Member Posts: 7,372 ✭✭✭✭

    Audio Visual support will be provided by Mr. Mike. We anticipate a delightful and lengthy Slide show.

    (Again Mark, you might want to keep a Heads up, and confer with the Head of your Security Detail if you feel there are additional concerns for your Safety.)

    Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁

  • KenK/84BravoKenK/84Bravo Member Posts: 7,372 ✭✭✭✭

    Due to a recent Poll, PBR will not be provided this year. I know, some Members will be upset. (But)

    Mark Christian and a few other Members have graciously offered to bring some of their Private collection of fine spirits for those Members who have made the cut. (4th Star ranking.) We would like to Thank them in advance for this most generous contribution and sacrifice.


    *A recent change I'd like to bring to the Members attention. Due to recent changes in Civility and decorum brought about by Mark C and nunn - No Humor Will Be Allowed. No exceptions will be tolerated. Violations are subject to immediate removal from the event and subsequent demotion to 3 Star ranking.

    Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁

    That's why I already have my speech prepared:


  • ChrisStreettChrisStreett Member Posts: 3,755 ✭✭✭
    I'll be more than happy to help with the parking Ken. Will ya at least let Buddy hang outside with me and the other unworthies while you and the rest of the Potentates and Hoi Poloi hob knob amongst yourselves?

  • KenK/84BravoKenK/84Bravo Member Posts: 7,372 ✭✭✭✭

    As you can see, there are some disgruntled Members (3 Star and below) that seem to have some issues with the Exclusive Exalted 4th Star ranking. (This seems to be proportianal to the higher post count, yet lower ranking Members.) 😥

    Please be sure to have your CCW locked and loaded. James Bondish Walther PPK applications in the venerable .32 cal get and will receive Style points in Black Tie. (I will have to suffice with my exquisite CZ27.)

    Extraordinarily garish "BBQ Guns," will not be allowed and will have to be checked with Security at the entrance. (This falls under the Humor clause.) This is not some low class 1, 2, and 3 Star gathering for a Weenie Roast in Wilmington, NC. Please conduct yourself accordingly.

    Of course. Only 3 star people would do that sort of thing. I look forward to seeing all of you there. Don't forget the secrete handshake. We really need to practice that before we just show up looking silly trying to shake hands every which way. It really can get mixed up if you don't practice. Remember Roy and Ed at the 3 star ball a couple of years ago? We don't need that sort of thing happening again.


  • KenK/84BravoKenK/84Bravo Member Posts: 7,372 ✭✭✭✭

    Chris, your blatent attempt at sucking up has not gone unnoticed. You might even attain the coveted 4th Star ranking if you keep that up.

    Buddy sez, he will be more than happy to make sure you do not damage my Vehicle. Er,........Uhmn I mean he would be happy to accompany you and provide additional Security. (Keep an eye out for Don.)


    Todd after the debacle that was last years gathering of 1, 2 and 3 Star Members at Ricci Wrights Frat House/Weenie Roast, Keg Party, Mud Roll, I am not sure your Services are going to be solicited. Sorry. The Wilmington Police thought it was an out of hand gathering of the Hells Angels and Mongols. (Yes, the 4 Star Members have reviewed video, and have been appalled.)

    DARN IT, I just looked, I am a THREE STAR! Jeeez us, wth, disgruntled member here. Well, I will be preparing ON THE OUTSIDE of the Sheiks ship before coming up the red carpet boardwalk, possum shank, lima beans, grilled Vienna sausage and PBR for all the supporting staff on the outside. So take that.

    Accommodations, while rather spartan, serve as a means to urge lower ranking members to improve their station in life.
    Nunn, if you're reading this, do you know where this years Administrators retreat will be held? I hope that it isn't at the Ritz-Carlton again.

    Are you sure the lower ranks can handle the support staff duties? After all valet service, dish washing, bartending, general groveling and the rest of the menial chores require at least a modicum of aptitude. Perhaps we should hire some illegal immigrants that wouldn't whine all the time.😁 Bob

    chicken=anything else that tastes like chicken, up to and including a big pot of beans and mystery meat.....

    and I have it from a realiable news source the entertainment is gonna be Hillary and Pelosi busting out of cakes wearing nothing but saran wrap...........

    If I ever get my forth star maybe next year, I would love to join up in (East or West Tennessee is it?) for some feasting, camaraderie and humor. Maybe take in the Grand Ole Opry too. My next door neighbor who was a NYC Cop for nine years and is now a NYC Fireman has a beautiful pit bull. She is white with brown spots and has a beautiful disposition. Should I be invited someday I will send a picture of "Penny" to make sure "Buddy" approves and could bring her along.---------------------Ray

    I identify as a 4-star. So, that means I’m in, right?

    Don’t be a starcist. I might have to start a virtual riot. 😄

    For my appetizer I would like the Shrimp and Scallop Cocktail.  For my main course I would like the Lobster Thermidore and the 32 oz Kobe Porterhouse (rare - med. rare).  (Wagyu will do in a pinch).  And, I will have the roasted Yukons and the Greens in vinagrette.
    Because Surf & Turf can be difficult to pair with a single wine, I would like the 2015 Rombauer Chardonnay to be served with my Appetizer, followed by the 2010 Chateau Margaux - Bordeaux.  And I would respectfully request the Margaux be served about midway through my main course.  (Yes, I will be eating the Lobster Thermidore before the Beef).
    For Dessert, I am torn; the La Madeline au Truffle looks very nice, but I think I'll go with a Banana Split.
    I will look forward to your valet and reception committee upon my arrival.
    Arriba Dare-she!

    We've got the biggest balls of them all.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    They make medicine for that, the doctor can prescribe it.  You better hope it works because the surgery is really painful.
