The Eagles are Gathering #11 or is it #12?

Postby sundaymorningstaple » Tue, 07 May 2013 5:27 pm

Here is the thread from the last Gathering.....
EAGLES GATHERING 2013

Guess it's getting about that time. I chummed the waters and got almost an immediate nibble so can we look at something around the end of this month or around 7/8th of June? This will be our 2nd for 2013.

Off the top of my head....

The Juban Stand (has an awesome new burger I'm assured by Saint)

Phad Thai who did a stand up job last time and are always ready and able.

The owners of Phad Thai also have a Korean Restaurant down in Tanjong Pagar I think that is open till the wee hours of the morning.

Also always open to other suggestions.

JR8 you are officially invited as well is Hannieroo.

The rest already know who you are. Any suggestions just let me or x9200 know via PM.

Need to know preferences......

SMS - 7th June or 24th May (31th but I can't get plastered :-( )

I can't make 7th June - enroute to Ireland. 24th May os good for me. Any venue is cool.

I vote Juban Stand for the burger, end of May. June is bad because I'll be overseas for two weeks, and I don't know which dates yet.

Can't wait to meet JR8 :cool:

Hmm that's going to be difficult this time around - switching jobs soon, so forced to pay a whack of tax! :( Also, going to Aerosmith at the end of month, cannot justify too many nights out.

Hehehe... what a nice thought :)

Well I'm pretty easy. Pad Thai or Boat Quay might be a bit better for me since I know those spots well, but it doesn't matter much.

Happy to delay until any bulk of the Ol' Timers who want to come, can. But then again perhaps in the scheme of things, you just do a generally collective date, and those who can't make it 'this time' have a chance to 'next time'....

Either way, looking forward to meeting up with you characters too :)

Okay folks, looks like a mixed bag so far. I knew 24th might be a bad date as it's Vesak Day so a long holiday weekend!

Would we be better off looking at either of the last two Fridays or Saturdays in June? I'm okay with either Friday 21st or 28th.

I would prefer one of the Fridays and the end of June (21/28 both ok at this point). Holiday Fridays are a bit unpredictable. No strong preferences for the place. Pad Thai a bit more attractive being less noisy and with no get a cab problems after.

Of the last two Fridays in June, I'm only here on 21st.
