You don't know how excited I am to post this thread!

The biannual York breakfast IS BACK!!!!! Thursday, October 21st.......

I figure an arrival time of 0715-0745.....with departures around 0915-0945.

The place: the same.....the Round the Clock Diner, 222 Arsenal Rd (Route 30 just east of the I-83 interchange).

All are welcome.....traveling alone? Small group?  New to TCA? First York? With your spouse? All are welcome!

Come join your fellow York attendees as we catch up on the news over the last 24 months, meet new people, put a face with the name you've been talking  to online, and discuss what you're hoping to find as you walk the halls.

It is always a fun time!

As always, just leave a your name  and approximate number of attendees.....I have told them 25-30, but that can easily be expanded......we had between 40-50 people in October 2019!

I can taste those pumpkin pancakes!

I hope to make York in October and might stop to have breakfast at Round the Clock.
I had single heart artery bypass surgery 2 weeks ago and recuperating at home. Getting my strength back each day. Minimal invasive surgery called mid cab surgery, left chest still painful but healing.
I do intend to make York and take it all slowly there.

Ted:

Best of luck for a quick and complete recovery.

God bless you, Ted......I am gratified that all went well!

Ted, best wishes on a full recovery!  Hang in there!

Breakfast is up in the air for me this year.  I had to cancel my hotel reservation as my wife couldn't get off work as we need to attend Family Weekend at my son's college Friday through Sunday as he has show/concert performances Friday night and Sunday which we want to see.   It's just too far to drive home and then to college if I stay Thursday night (and you know I'd be out late..lol).

I'm going to offer to bring a friend of mine who wants to go for a day but has health issues and can't drive.   If he is up for breakfast we'll attend,  if not, I'm sure I'll see several of you in the Orange Hall  before the meet opens and in the halls throughout the day.  While I'm disappointed I won't get to socialize in the evening I'm glad that my friend will now be able to attend the meet.  Gotta stay positive...a day at York is better than no day at York.

Greg, I feel your pain.  Several years ago I had my badge that I picked up the previous Meet all ready for the next Meet, when I was told during the summer we were invited to a wedding, during York weekend...... in Michigan!  It was a long year!  I'll see you Thursday!

@Ted Bertiger  Glad to hear you're on the mend, my friend!  Hope all continues to go well and you can go to the Meet.  GO FLYERS!!!!

Thanks to all with your comments. I am looking forward to going to York on Thursday and staying over for Friday.
Have plans to drive out with one of my old Nabisco co-worker and ex-AOL train board friend. I’m going if I have to walk or run there. Not much can stop my path to York. Been 2 years now since the gates of toy train heaven have been opened.
Feeling better each day and eager to attend. Definitely no scrapple or bacon for me!

Great to here Ted!!!

In an effort to provide information to our breakfast guests and York attendees regarding the central PA area masking approach, I decided to attend the AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America) Fall event in Hershey. It is a HUGE outdoor event. But of course, one must go indoors. Masks seem to be optional in this area. The general signage is that masking is NOT required for fully vaccinated people and is recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated. I'm not sure what that means or how one knows whether the guidance is being followed or not. I would assume the "or not" is the applicable phrase. I went into a Lowe's and I really didn't see masks.

I hope this information is useful to you regarding York. I realize we all have different approaches and comfort levels in dealing with COVID. I do intend to be at York and am looking forward to a great time.

Thanks for the info, Gerry. I plan to not wear a mask unless required to do so. I have been fully vaccinated, including booster, and also recently got my annual flu shot. But that is just me and how I approach my own life and whatever time the Good Lord grants me for the rest of it. Those who feel more comfortable (or safe) wearing masks should, by all means, do so. And all should plan to abide by whatever rules are in effect at the York Expo Center or other venues you may visit while in the area.

Agreed Allan. When I was at Strasburg this past weekend, whenever I went into the buildings, I popped it on. The train ride it didn't look like anyone but staff wore them, but it was a nice day and all the windows were open. I guess I'll wait and see what everyone's approach is if it is up to the individual. I'll will make sure to keep it on hand as well as my vaccination card if there is a need to show that.

I’m ready for whatever the rules are!

That OGR pin on your mask is hilarious (in a good way).

Unfortunately, no breakfast for me this year.   It's a bit much for my friend whom I'll be taking this year as he's unable to drive.  As I mentioned earlier, I'll miss everyone but I'm happy my friend will now get to attend the meet.  I look forward to seeing many of you in the halls!

Excellent. I will be there for sure. Not certain whether Carolyn will be coming. I will let you know. Will be great to see the Forum Members who will be there!

Pat

Peter:

It will just be me, myself and I at the breakfast. Carolyn will not be going to the Meet with me, as she will be helping our daughter prepare for our grandson's 5th birthday party on Sunday the 24th.

Pat

Peter,

Not sure where Rich and I are having breakfast on Thursday am. I believe we will be getting to York about 8:30 am and think we will stop at Round the Clock for breakfast. If we do, I can get those NYC boxes from you afterwards. If we decide to eat at Manchester Diner on Calislie Avenue, I will call you in the am before the show opens.

Can't wait for York as I have done some pre-packing already!!
