The Woodlands Forum Member Meeting

Anyone in The Woodlands area care to meet a Goose Acres for lunch on 2 March? Either reply to this message or send me a personal message.

If another day would be better, let me know that too.

I'm planning on it. Will have family from Wisconsin with us then, but should not be a problem for that day.

(anyone check in with LOL?? I think he is somewhere in the area)

I didn't realize (or have forgotten) that he lived up this way.

I've just sent him a PM with a link to this thread.

I can probably make it. March 2 is a Monday, so that works for me.

I'll be at w*rk, so count me out.

Glad to see you are confident that you'll be available on a Monday, 2B.

I'll be out of town then.

Anyone interested in meeting up in central Houston in March?

Oh yea of little faith.

We're not particularly busy right now and there are people available from the Upstream group. Right after I turned in my resignation the initial thought was keeping me on another three months. That soon changed to a couple days but changed back quickly to the end of February to maintain continuity with the client. Supposedly, HR has been informed that 27 February is my last day. I won't be missed from a staffing standpoint.

I didn't think you were anywhere close to The Woodlands.

I don't know central Houston at all, I rarely leave The Woodlands, but would be more than happy to attend a meeting downtown if someone went to the effort to set it up.

I might be in town for something in March but won't know until very shortly beforehand.

For those that doubt me, I now have my exit interview scheduled for Wednesday, 25 February. Only six more in-office days left.

I'm reposting to see if anyone else plans on coming. Right now I have Alan, aja888 and LOL! coming.

I wish you could be there as well.

Maybe once 2B retires he could change his name to Not2B
