View Full Version : MWBP "Get Together" after Omaha Boat Show (Feb.26)



Jst4Cyn aka Mrs JMS
02-21-2005, 02:18 PM
Makinwaves started "makin' waves" in a similar thread under Poker Runs-Fun Runs on Feb. 8th, regarding both boat shows in Omaha (Civic-Feb. 11-13, & Qwest Center-Feb. 25-27). The thread started by asking who was going to the boat show. As it progressed, somebody mentioned a MWBP party to coincide with the Qwest show. (I think Tempest38 or makinwaves was the culprit).

It was suggested that another thread be started, & listed under Parties and Get Togethers.

So, here I am, taking the initiative....

*The original thread was named Omaha Boat Shows - February 2005.

From that thread, the following responded with the # attending:
bigbry (4-5, 2 children)
docjimm [smilie=061.gif] (4-5)
Tempest38 :mrgreen: (not sure how many, but I'm sure he'll drag along a couple of Omaha girls that he met in KC) [smilie=265.gif]
eddie (15 Guys) [smilie=tosser.gif]
Baja Tender (2)
Me & JMS (6 or 7, depending if our son goes)

Taking the max. count from these that responded, it is 37. I say that's enough for a get together right there.
BUT, when it comes to a MWBP get together, MORE is always BETTER!

So, who else is going to join in?
Dr. Jeff ?
Pammy?
Mellllissa?
HiTechRedNeck?
$$hredder? (And your lovely better half)
H20PartyGirl? (eddie has 15 guys with him)
ReelyNauti & Cherry Tree! (I counted you in with us) :mrgreen:

I know there are A LOT more Omaha (& sorrounding area) people. Above are just a few I threw out off the top of my head.

What about all you Iowa people that love to take our money through your casinos? (I hope LakePirate & ? that he [smilie=265.gif]with) doesn't read this political [smilie=265.gif].I think you need to come and contribute your fun, and some of our $$ back. OR, can't you guys handle 2 weekends in a row of MWBP? [smilie=265.gif] [smilie=265.gif]

We (JMS & I) are not going to the boat show, as we went to KC's. But, we're up for a MWBP party! And I know of some others in the same boat.

Once people reply with how many, time available, etc. then we can move on to deciding where & when. Since makinwaves will have his 8&9 yr. old boys, I'm thinking we'll have to lean toward a kid-friendly or family oriented place. Or, we just don't invite him [smilie=265.gif]

So, NOW, with ALL that said (sorry so long) POST AWAY!

**This is for the party only. If you're going to the boat show only & want to meet up with other MWBP people, it would be appreciated if you started a different thread, to avoid confusion, considering the lack of time to plan. Thanks.

I'm not the only one with kids, or is it because mine are the youngest? Don't plan around me. We can get a babysitter after we take the boys to the show. [smilie=trink39]

NO, it's not because yours are the youngest, so quit with the [smilie=violin]. I just didn't see anyone else mention kids, except for us.
I'm just waiting to see who (if anybody) is interested & if we need to accomodate for kids. If it's a night event it will be a little tougher, but not impossible to find a place. And, we will have to also get a babysitter if it ends up not being "kid freindly." If it ends up that way, can we send our 11 yr. old with yours to your babysitter? [smilie=265.gif]

Time to name a place, any body have any ideas. Cyn and I were talking Old Dundee, Not real busy on a saturday night and right in the middle of the town. How's that sound? What time does the show end?

02-22-2005, 03:58 PM
Okay gang, here's the deal. I've called Fox & Hound on 120th & Dodge and they have room for us either Friday night or Saturday night. Saturday afternoon, they also have room and suggested that would be a slow time and their pool tables would be available - is that kid friendly enough??

Party??? Are we talking hooking up at someones home or in a tavern or was it a barn? What's this party supposed to look like?


Actually, I was "surfing the site" last night & saw a marina - I think it was called Cottonwood? [smilie=265.gif]

JK Pete, and good luck on the big endeavor!

There have been a few positive responses for Fox & Hound 120th & Dodge above. Are there any more?

Update - based on what's been posted among 3 threads (Omaha Boat Shows February 2005, Any Wichita area people wanna go to the Omaha boat show, and this one).

H20PartyGirl (with a couple friends)
BajaLuvr (2)
Baja Tender (2)
bigbry (5-6)
docjimm (4-5)
FirstMate (?-2?)
JMS & Jst4Cyn (4, possibly more)
makinwaves (2)
pammy (2, possibly more?)
$HREDDER (2)

That's approx. 26 min. & 30 max. count

Tempest38, as far as I know (based on his posts) is planning to come. He also started the "Wichita thread," where Christian & tach 3 inquired and Tempest38 made mention of also contacting other people in the area, such as Sheriff & Willie.

I have also pm'd some people. Some replied with no, and some are still trying to figure out their plans.

** FirstMate......I still agree with you that Fox & Hound would be a good choice.

Okay folks! It is done. I made the call to Fox & Hound 120th & Dodge. They will have a "set up" for us - NOT A PRIVATE ROOM - for 30 people beginning 4 P.M. Sat, the 26th. (The private rooms were a little pricey.)

They apparently have pool tables and ping pong for the kiddies but I did not reserve any specific time time on these since we don't know who's arriving or when.

The upstream is a big place downtown, with lots of pool tables. If we started getting there at 4pm, we could easily claim our space(s)

Just a thought. Obviously a lot of people have already put a lot of effort into the plans, so feel free to ignore my [smilie=twocents.gif] ........ :roll:

I am new to this site, but I think it would be fun to meet everyone for a drink. My response is late, but it would be nice to go someplace close to the boat show.

please don't bite. :mrgreen:

Little K.........

Your perception is deeply appreciated. Originally, the thoughts were downtown, but people felt that places would be too busy due to the boat show & other events downtown. After that, mid-town was suggested. Not many responses were received, and some of us were in the process of pm(ing) people (such as your husband) that hadn't responded. [smilie=265.gif] Then, First Mate jumped in (Thank you, by the way. Your name fits you & I can't wait to meet you, as I like those "take the bull by the horns" kind of guys) and made a "West" location suggestion that apparently worked for the people that were actively watching the thread. As far as JMS & I, we were open to anything, but due to our lifestyle we have to plan ahead.

I know others feel the same, as they have asked me, but I really hope that you & eddie can make it, despite the longer drive. Come on, you drove a lot further for Mellllissa's B-Day party. [smilie=265.gif]

Again, hope to see you!

You're not new - you joined Feb. 5th [smilie=265.gif] Sorry that the location didn't end up being downtown. Hope you can still make it! :lol:

We went to the KC party where there were 200? people & didn't get bit once. It was a blast, and a great opportunity to meet other people from the site. Obviously (unfortunately) this "get together" is small, but I have always found it nice to meet people from the site, whether it be 2 or 200.

Make sure you come by the AC Nelson RV World spot. I know Cottonwood and Riverland we have a table there (and I hope one other elsewhere.) With permission, I might even put up a sign something like "Temporary MWBP Headquarters"... BTW, when arriving at the Fox & Hound simply announce that you're with the Midwest Boat Party.

And on another subject, just who will be there at 4 P.M. anyway. I don't want to be the only one sitting at a table for 30. Lyndie won't be able to be there until 6:15 or so.

Dr. Jeff
02-24-2005, 04:39 PM
I need to carefully set the record straight here, as I'm getting a whole chitload of PM's from people asking me about the MWBP Party after the boat show.

I say carefully because I'm not trying to hurt any feelings here, but because of the amount and type of questions I'm getting, especially from the out of towners I need to be clear.

This is a get together infomally organized by some of the members of this site. This is NOT a MWBP Annual Party type of thing. MWBP is not putting this party on, it is an informal get together of some of the members of this site as a way to meet some of the new people and hang out with old friends.

I don't want people to be driving in from out of town thinking we're having another MWBP bash, and then be upset at MWBP because its not what they thought it would be.

Having said that, if you are in town, or want to drive to Omaha, in the middle of winter just for fun, there will be quite a few of the Omaha/IA members at the Fox & Hound after the show, and its always fun to get together and hang out. For the new people on the forum, it is a good way to introduce yourself and put some faces with some names while you have a few beers.

HM and I will not be able to make it, as I'll be on an interview trip, but we hope you all have fun, and take lots of pics.

Thanks
Dr. Jeff

Jst4Cyn aka Mrs JMS
02-24-2005, 08:07 PM
Oops! :oops: I think this was my fault. Now that I think about it, I guess I should have worded the thread differently, and not put MWBP in it. I aplogize to those who misconstrued the meaning.

Dr. Jeff, I am so sorry that it caused a flood of pm's for you. A little "Live & Learn" of the site for me I guess. Hope you have a nice weeekend.

I wasn't aware of it until now.
As far as the Quicky restaurant style, are the KC "traditions" making their way to Omaha? [smilie=126.gif]

Not that I know of. I'm in Wishita formerly Wichita, not KC. But Omaha has some nice and some Really Nice features that I like.
