Mooseman is getting closer. It would be great to set up some plans of BT gatherings.

Any ideas of dinner for Friday or Saturday?

I'd prefer not to do the pasta dinner as I don't eat pasta and I know a few other BTers doing the race don't as well.. I spoke to Mike (marmadaddy) while at St. A's about what BT things are going on and things were still not settled. I'll ask again.

What worked good at St. A's gathering was meeting at a restaurant  that has flexibility so folks can come and go as needed and order on their own. I have a couple places in mind and would like to hear from others for suggestions.

Saturday there is a party in the afternoon at the Irish pub at the corner of 3A and I think West Shore which would be a super place to meet up.

Many of us doing the Int'l distance are staying until Sunday to cheer on the folks for the HIM and some will be volunteering. I'm not sure when most of the HIM folks are coming.

I rode the course yesterday and actually went in the water..it was maybe 45 I'm not really sure.

It would be nice to know when you are playing on coming and what you are up to doing.

I'm planning coming up Friday in time to swim in the afternoon and leave either late Saturday or after swim start Sunday as we have Sox vs Yankee tickets for a 1pm start at Fenway.

Friday I'd like to meet for dinner with others but need to pick a place that has stuff I eat...don't eat refinded carbs so no pasta or bread...meat, veggies and fruit...can be tough finding a place.

Saturday: I'm open for anything as my race is over. Meeting at the Irish Pub party would be great for the afternoon and a fun BT dinner Saturday night, but where/when defer to those doing the HIM as it is their pre-race day.

 Do you want to eat at the Cuna mara (Irish pub) on Friday night like we did last year?  We could make a reservation.  Isn't that the only sit-down restaurant?

The Irish place was great and has food I eat...we could do that but I suspect we will be a larger group this year which may be an problem.

Turns out Sox vs Yankees game was moved to 8pm start so I can stay later on Sunday!

I'll be staying on the lake from Friday through Wednesday, so I'm pretty flexible. There are not a lot of options for more casual places where people can easily come and go, apart from the local pizza/sub places. Cunamara is great, but on the small side.

Anyone up for an short 15-20 ows Friday before registration maybe 4:30ish?

Also if you are interested in dinner Friday night with a group of us, send me a PM with your cell phone number, how many of you there will be and an email address would be super. I'll get back to you with my cell and detail when they are set. If it is easy I can help put this together...I need a no stress night though.

In talking with Patty we thought we'd go to the Irish place Cu Na Mara Friday night like we did last year, corner of West Shore Drive and 3A. It isn't huge and I'd like to see if we can get reservations but probably could only do a group of maybe 15 at the most.

Saturday after the race let's try to meet up at the Moose Party at Cu Na Mara with free Coors, snacks and live music. Party starts at noon....us slower BOPers won't finish until 11:30-12:00 then shower, probably won't get there until after 1:30-2pm.

Saturday night dinner, any ideas? Who wants to organize something?

Hi Kathy

I look forward to meeting you and other BTers at Mooseman. I'll be driving up Saturday morning and back down on Saturday night, but would like to meet up with folks. It looks like that will occur at the pub mentioned in this thread.

I'll keep an eye out for you guys. I don't have any BT gear, but am bib# 5324

I'm planning on coming down just after the Oly. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone at the after party at the Irish Pub. My wife just informed me today that she is probably bagging the trip Cry so I'm certainly up for a dinner get together on Saturday (maybe I can recruit some jockstrappers!). the Irish Pub is very good and the owner is wonderful, but I have a real weak spot for good Irish Whiskey and they got the best selection I've ever seen.
