Dinner menu

As of now, I've just made an email contact with them, asking if we could have a party of about 20 to order off the menu. It's a go!

HOWEVER...

I need to know numbers. Not right away, of course, but when we get closer, I'll be asking for your attendance! I'd like to be able to give them a firm number by October 15. Anyway, PM me if you are planning on attending the dinner!

EEEEEEEEE!

Just as an FYI...

From Claygary contacted me earlier in the week, and CV is also having a party at the Elephant and Castle that night. However, their's starts an hour earlier (6:30 p.m.) and they have a room reserved with a buffet. She and I decided that we could be a "separate but together" party, in that those who want to attend both could go between the two parties (since many of us either are members at both boards or have friends there). We will both need to know, though, with which party you are going to eat, as that will affect numbers on both sides.

If the dinner reaches 30 people who want to eat with FCA, the manager at the restaurant said we probably would not be able to just order off the menu. However, they have a choice of three "limited menus" that we can select, with at least 5 different options for choices. Here is that menu. Soft drinks and coffee are included, as well as gratuity. (My feeling is that I would choose either the $17 or $19.50 per person menu...)

I will keep you posted as things continue to develop!

As all I'll want is either the Shepherd's Pie, the Chicken Pot Pie or the Fish 'n Chips, I'm good with any of 'em. I'm sticking with the FCA.

Since my whole traveling group is dining with the FCA, then I'd better hop on the bandwagon, too! Please add me for dinner.

I'm not sure where things stand now. I know the CV dinner is running into problems. As of today, the FCA list hasn't reached 20, so I'd like to add myself and artquest.. If there are changes, maybe this info could be updated. Starting to get excited here!!

Awesome! I'll add you all to the list!

I'm starting to work on a favor for all partygoers, so it is appreciated that you posted. I look forward to seeing you two (and everyone else as well)!
