Hey Everyone!  The time is again here for the traditional OGR Forum member Thursday evening get together at Quaker Steak and Lube.  Traditionally after the doors close on Thursday in the trading halls, OGR Forum members, subscribers, and advertisers head on over to QSL for a great meal, conversation, and a plain old good time.  If you are new to the OGR Forum and/or York "experience", then head on over and meet the guys and gals that you may know only on the Forum but would like to meet in person.  When you get there, just ask the staff where we are and to sit you with us but I am willing to bet that you will be able to find us without any help cause when you get almost two hundred of us together . . . well, you know what I mean!  See you there!

Safe travels to York!

Three of us three trailers were there and I'm an avid fan of OGR.  We set near where Amy Fry was seated....

I wish that I could have met you in person.  This is the way things are generally.  Everyone knows everyone else with us as the exception...

You just have to get in and rub elbows with the masses when you get there.  After years of going, I still meet people at ever meet that I never met in person.

No one knew me either when I first starting going to the various breakfasts and dinners at York and other shows.  You just have to keep showing up and start mixing in and introducing yourself to others.  I meet new folks at every meet.  Before long you'll be bumping into someone you know at every meet.  Don't give up!

Last October Allan Miller walked around from table to table when he got there or possibly after he ate. It is not hard to meet people, it's just a question of mingling. Last year Peter, aka Putnam Division popped over to me and we talked for a bit before popping over to one of the other tables and chatting up quite a bit. The NJ Hi-Railers were in the back that time(and this time) and closed the place probably.

It is all a matter of just enjoying everything that's going on. I got to meet Gily, & Jerry who are part of Peter's club. DougN joined us at our table and he and I were running into each other since Wednesday at both the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, the Toy Train Museum as well as breakfast.

Yep, that's how it works.  My first York I knew a handful of people.  Now I know hundreds there, and there's always someone bopping by and saying hi.   There's nothing like being able to put a face with the names, a major reason why I go to York.
