Here are the monthly submissions from the lunch bunches. Reports are that there is a lot of QRM around these tables. We'll let you decide, are they lolly gagging or just having a good time? In the east they have been meeting at Brother Paul's Restaurant in Eagleville, in the central area they meet at Hoss's Family Steak & Seafood in State College, and in the west at the Iron Bridge Inn, south of Mercer, PA. We highly recommend that if you plan to attend, you checkin to the net to confirm the date, time, and location, in case of inclement weather.
