    I will post more details as they solidify.
    After this initial GTG, I have lined up watch maker's and Dealers for a dog-n-pony show and sponsorships for prizes and such. We will probably move to a more private location than Tylers so we can relax and communicate better.

    Maybe I am too sceptic but honestly I wouldn`t follow an invite of a member with 2 posts. At least I would expect some preliminary words. But this is only me......

    Hmmm, if this was a weekend, I'd be in. Weekday trips to the Triangle are a no-go for me...

    Tonight * Watch GTG in Triangle - NC - USA *

    Mike, you are entirely correct to be skeptical. Even worse on April fools day.
    I don't hang out here, but over on other watch boards.

    I will be there at Tyler's taproom in Durham. Since it will be small, I will only have a table reserved. I have already lined up sponsors and speakers for future meetings.

    Thumbs Up * Watch GTG in Triangle - NC - USA * Trip Report

    We had a good time.
    We met at Tyler's Taproom because I arranged the meeting, it was pint night ($5 Abita Turbo Dog, free glass), and I like beer.

    Location: Bar/Restaurant. Crowded but we had a table and dinner.
    Time: April fools day. Not the best time to hold a first meeting....
    Atmosphere: Surprisingly good. Plenty of room to spread out watches.

    Watches: Pam 111h, Pam 111e (swiss), Omega Railmaster, Omega SMP,Frank Mueller, Wenger, Lucian Picard, Breitling SOSF, Santos 100, etc.

    Raffle prize was a Bergeon movement holder which went to DariusP.


    Notes: Announce earlier, use Satisfaction's free room instead of TTR, get sponsors.

    Areas (for search to find): Raleigh Durham Oxford Cary Chapel Hill Wake Forest

    Thanks to all that attended!
