We yet again are heading back to the Firkin Tavern in Ewing for our annual kick off meet. As always it will be an open buffet and a cash bar. Not all details are confirmed (exact time, payment methods, menu, etc.) but we will update this post soon with those details. But the date, location and approximate time are set.

We have limited space available in the game room at Firkin, so we have set up a pre-payment that will run through 8:00 pm Wednesday January 18th. The cost of the meet is $25 per person prepaid, and $30 at the door on the day of the meet. Active Power Members enjoy a $5 discount off the cost of tickets.

***Pre-Payment Information***• Pre-payment runs through 8:00 pm Wednesday January 18th
• Cost is $25 per person prepaid; $20 for active Power Members
• Send prepayments via PayPal to paypal@NJFBOA.org,
• Be sure to include your username and your full name with your payment so we make sure to give the correct person credit.
• If you would rather pay with a check or cash, please send Justin (Tru2Chevy) a Private Message ASAP so we can make arrangements before the pre-pay deadline.The lunch buffet menu is Smothered Chicken (bacon! cheese!), Rigatoni with Vodka Sauce, and Wings – both buffalo and firkin house wings (very good), along with garden salad. There will also be several pitchers of soda available, and for those that are 21+, we will be in the game room right next to Firkin's bar, where they have plenty on tap (for additional charges).

The game room has pool tables, dart boards, giant jenga and air hockey available for our use. We should be able to watch Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auto auctions live on the TVs as well.

The meet is also a good time to pick up one of our new club T-Shirts or some NJFBOA vinyl. Please feel free to bring your friends and families to join in the fun as we kick off another year in style.

Time: Start showing up after 12; lunch is served 1 to 3 PM
Date: Saturday, January 21st
Location: Firkin Tavern
1400 Parkway Ave.
Ewing, NJ 08628

Sounds great.
Couple of questions:

1- Would Hunter (15y/o son) be allowed in the place next door for pool, darts, etc?

2 - The pub with the great wings on 31/78 I mentioned at Woody's is called Finnagels. In case anyone wants to give it a shot some month.

JL8Jeff
01-17-2012, 08:33 PM
If they're saying rain/snow for Saturday today, it most likely will show up earlier or later than predicted because they've been terrible so far this winter. So it will rain/show on Friday/Friday night or Sat night/Sunday.

If it snows severely, when will we receive notice?

BonzoHansen
01-20-2012, 10:39 PM
Not until at least 10. They are only calling for a few inches turning to rain here by lunch. This is not an easy meet to reschedule.

88WS-6
01-21-2012, 05:51 AM
It took me 20 extra minutes to get to work this morning. Stupid summer tires.

Hopefully they plow a few roads today. 287 wasn't even plowed...

BigAls87Z28
01-21-2012, 06:25 AM
Looks like 2-3 inches here. Gunna try to talk my way out of work.

LTb1ow
01-21-2012, 06:49 AM
Yea its just a few inches round me, but now its a lovely rain/ice/sleet mix would should make for lovely playgrounds for idiots.

Frosty
01-21-2012, 06:51 AM
To those that are going, be safe.

I wish I could get out of work but when you're the only writer there on the Saturday you work it's not possible.

Phoenixfire1989
01-21-2012, 06:53 AM
We'll see if the trans am can brave the snow..made it home this morning from work!

coolmanvette75
01-21-2012, 06:54 AM
Only like 2-3 inches here in old bridge and it looks like its changing over to rain. I will still be attending today

BonzoHansen
01-21-2012, 06:55 AM
We have about 2 inches here. I have to go out at 830 so I'll see what the roads are like. Remaining weather should be out by lunch. Unless I am totally surprised when I go out I'd say we are on.

edit: it is sleeting here. I am going to call and see if we can delay. no guarantees until I talk to them.

anyone out there just be safe and keep long following distances. This is NJ not SC, we can handle 2" of snowy stuff.

88WS-6
01-21-2012, 07:36 AM
It would have been nice if they had plowed even just a little last night or this morning. I drove in at 5:30am and every road was untouched.

BonzoHansen
01-21-2012, 08:22 AM
Roads are quite passable but you gotta take your time. Rt295 and then main local roads I was on were plowed. some sleet in the air so be safe.

I have not got an answer yet from firkin but I want to delay lunch from 1 to 230. As soon as I know I'll report back.

If not remember lunch is served at 1 so take your time!

Blackbirdws6
01-21-2012, 08:23 AM
Taking the wife's SUV so travel won't be a problem.

BonzoHansen
01-21-2012, 08:25 AM
Lunch is delayed until 230 so maybe plan being there around 2. Take your time and be safe!

JL8Jeff
01-21-2012, 08:35 AM
Looks like the snow here is done and they just plowed my road. So the 2:30 delay should work out well for the roads to get cleaned up before most people need to head out. Take it easy and give yourself extra time. I've seen too many accidents the last 3 days and that was in good weather!

LTb1ow
01-21-2012, 08:47 AM
So what time should we shoot to get there?

PolarBear
01-21-2012, 08:54 AM

I don't think they allow shooting at Firkin

LTb1ow
01-21-2012, 08:57 AM
I do believe they have a variant of big buck hunter so yes good sir, they do allow a form of shooting on their premises, now please stop being lame troll and answer the question perhaps if you could?

Been working in the area this morning, most of the roads are nicely cleared and nothing more then wet UNITL you get to Ewing. Scotch and Lower Ferry look untouched, so allot of slush, so a bit messy but you can certainly get through.
