Thank you for the checks, gentlemen, but please include your fordham.fans id so I may connect the
names and "Handles."

Under the forum, General Fordham University Topics, is a thread initiated by Rambacker re: a freshman broadcaster,
who will be matriculating at Rose Hill next month. I invited the young man to our luncheon and he just replied.

"Thanks so much for inviting me! Count me in.

I appreciate you reaching out.

Thanks again,"

Our luncheon will be three weeks from this Friday and we now have 12 commitments, which is the same number of attendees as last year.

Will we have 15? 20? If you can get to the beautiful North Fork of Eastern Long Island by noon on Friday, August 18 by LIRR, Hampton Jitney, personal vehicle or the Cross Sound Ferry from CT, consider joining your FordhamFans.com colleagues for 2-3 hours of camaraderie,
enjoyable stories and memories, good food and drink, and a beautiful view of Southold Bay & Shelter Island. Fun is the order of the day and based upon the prior two luncheons, you won't be disappointed. Go Rams!

BTW, if you have a powerboat, Pepi's has a tie-up dock immediately adjacent to the restaurant. It's very convenient.

Our 3rd Annual FordhamFans.com North Fork luncheon on Friday, August 18 just surpassed last year's total of 12 attendees.

For the third year in a row, Steve McGarrett will be taking the Cross Sound Ferry from New London to Orient Point. The latest commitment
number is 13: 98ramgrad, fordham 77, jimbo 65, LXRF, joesunfish, AOC, 97Ram, tuckertomm and brother Ed, Lefty54, TD-58, Steve McGarrett and RamNewbie-'21.

The luncheon is three weeks from tomorrow and the restaurant has asked that I provide a "Final" number by next Friday. While we shall always attempt to accommodate last minute additions, it would be helpful to be able to provide a realistic number to the owner next week. Many thanks for your cooperation.

Joe

This thread is getting more updates than the recruiting thread!  I am not sure if it truly belongs in the basketball section of the board if it is going to be updated as it has been.

Sorry, Ace, things became very active after a slow period. I'll pace it better and won't post more than once daily,
which should help.

FWIW, I doubt the restaurant needs any reservation at all, let alone the daily seating arrangement update of who is chipping in $10.

Ya, no doubt Joe is padding his retirement with $10 from 13 guys.   Guy is pulling a scam.  There's probably no restaurant at all.  In fact there's probly no lunch, either.  He probably went to St. John's and has never set foot in a sailboat...

Thanks, AOC. Best laugh of the day.

BTW, I'll be at the Orient Point Ferry to meet you, LXRF & Steve when you arrive at 11:40 AM. And, we'll make sure to save time to stop at THE CANDYMAN in Orient on the way to the ferry for the return trip. Among their many chocolate offerings, their Peanut Brittle is to die for!

Speaks volumes about the state of our recruiting...

Stopped by Pepi's yesterday. The tide was high and the view was spectacular. I've reserved an expanded table at the same location we had last year when we had 12 attendees. With the additions of Bob C. and Richard J., the current confirmed number is 16 people. More may be accommodated so if anyone else would like to join us, you are welcome to do so.

The current confirmations are: 98ramgrad, fordham 77, jimbo 65, LXRF, joesunfish, AOC, 97Ram, tuckertomm, his brother Ed and alumnus neighbor, Richard J., plus Lefty54, TD-58, Steve McGarrett, RamNewbie-'21, Ketchum 1 and Bob C.

Go Rams!

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO 16 ATTENDEES SCHEDULED TO ATTEND THIS FRIDAY'S LUNCHEON

The current forecast for Southold is:
"Showers early then scattered thunderstorms developing later in the day. High 77F. Winds S at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 60%."

If this forecast occurs between noon - 3:00 PM, dining outside will be virtually impossible, as the 10-15 mph wind will be blowing the rain directly onto the terrace. The overhead canopy will be useless. Inside dining is possible but due to the smaller area within the restaurant, it is likely that our larger group this year will have less privacy. Moreover, the roundtrip "Cruise" on the Cross Sound Ferry for the three making the trip will be less than ideal.

Thus, since weather forecasts change so frequently, particularly those for the North Fork on weekends this summer, I shall check the latest forecast late tomorrow afternoon, and post a GO or NO GO, i.e. cancellation, for Friday's luncheon. Unfortunately, we have family plans for the two remaining Fridays before Labor Day, so if it is canceled, the luncheon will not be rescheduled this summer.

It's important, that this message reaches all those, who have committed to come, so if you are scheduled to join us, please acknowledge awareness of this post by confirming same to me by IM or at joesunfish@aol.com. Thank you.

Joe 

PS In the event of cancelation, all deposit checks will be voided.
