First Western PA Lunch

Dick, K3VYY via email - 02/05/2015 Updated 02/20/2015


The Pittsburg WX Bureau has issued a Winter Storm Warning for tomorrow with possible heavy snow during the day. That being the case we are going to postpone the lunch and try to reschedule it till March. Watch here for the latest updates!

So here is the plan for the First Western PA Rooster Lunch. It will be held weather permitting on Saturday February 21'st 12 noon, at the Iron Bridge Inn, south of Mercer, PA, with easy access from I80, I79, or US19. There are no reservtions required unless in the future we want to use the meeting room. Then a fee, and minimum number of attendees would be required. Let's see if we can make this a regular (monthly/quarterly) event?

Hope to see you Western PA Roosters at lunch!


Reviving our Rooster Spring Gathering

Ron, K3BKT via email - 02/23/2015


Yes we are reviving our annual Rooster Spring Gathering on Saturday April 4th, at a new venue called Yoder's Country Market. Located on east side of New Holland along Route 23. Click here to veiw the map, and get directions. As in the past, we will meet indoors in the area near the restaurant entrance between 11:30am and noon. Our banquet room will be available at noon. We have reserved the room from noon to around 3:00pm. This should give us plenty of time to socialize.

Yoder's offers an all-inclusive rate of $18.99 which includes the buffet, drinks, tax, and gratuity. We felt it was the way to go. We will get separate checks, and a 10% senior citizen discount is available. You just pay at the gift shop on your way out.

Make a day of it by seeing some of the Amish sites, visit the many unique gift shops, and stores along your way.

To RSVP, please send an email to: k3bkt dot ron at gmail dot com with your call sign, name, and number of guests. I will keep track of the responses and let the banquet manager know how many folks are planning to attend so we can reserve the proper size room. If you can't email or don't check your mail on a daily basis, you can pass your info on to the net control station. I will get your info and update my chart. One more thing. Do NOT send me money. Just send the info I requested.

Hope to see you there!

Roosters meeting for lunch is not a new thing, however they have become more frequent, and spreading! Plans for a first in the west, the more recent central, and the long standing east, here in Pennsylvania. Who knows where this will lead! 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 in State College, and in the west watch here for details. We highly recommend that if you plan to attend you checkin to the net to confirm the time, and location, or inclement weather.
