In these lean month submissions we notice some of the usual suspects missing. Funny thing is they turn up elsewhere! We'll let you decide, if they are 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 should check in to the net to confirm the date, time, and location, or in case of inclement weather.
