Okay Andviv- here it is! The start of something beautiful...and unappetizing. The first annual Fastlane Beer and Pancakes Breakfast Meetup! Who would be interested in meeting up for :smx7: and/or :cheers:? If all goes well it will lead to :banana: and :icon_super:.

With just sticking my finger in the wind, it seems that Phoenix would be a likely canidate. Any thoughts? How about a date? MJ- seems since you created this baby that you should have the honors...let me know if I can help in any way!

We helped organize the last 2 RD get togethers.

Sounds great - winter / early spring is probably the best time to do it so everyone can enjoy the nice weather. February-ish / early March are great times of year.

Great Idea.

Along the same lines, I have wanted to have a get get together/hang for those on the east coast, specifically the northeastern part part of the USA. I am currently in central NJ, an hour from NY, and an hour from philly. I know that Chris Piranha is from NJ/NY, and I believe there are also a couple others in the area.

Beer and pancakes....mmmmm :cheers:

....As a "Rank Newbie" (from SoCA) I'd be willing to endeavour to attend in PHX if newbies are included.

....I agree...early to mid Feb to early March is usually an excellent time in the desert!!!

As an FYI...might consider that '08 March Madness is in March too (go figure "March Madness" is held in "March")...and the better hotels/resorts will often get booked with party groups, etc. during the tourney.

Also, if not PHX, and you want to keep it in the SW...as an alternative, consider Vegas as well...if for no other reason than most every city has a multitude of flight choices to LAS.

Keep me posted.

How about we meet on March 4th. Get it? March 4th...(march forth) lol. God, I am so funny it hurts sometimes. :smilielol:

I vote for Phoenix, as I think we could all get in way too much trouble together in Vegas. MJ- do you know of a good meeting place- maybe a hotel? What did you guys do for the RD meetup last year? What worked, and what didn't work? What would you guys want to see different this time?

Phx, March 4th.
I'm in.

Now, what I propose? Everybody should present a deal that either they did or are working on in the six months previous to the event.
Also, more presentations as we did last time --thanks Russ for coordinating that one.

Anybody can think of a special guest to talk about a topic related to the financial path to wealth?

Jesse, you can't afford to miss this one. I suggest you rephrase that as "I will figure it out and will find a way to afford that trip". Positive thinking is a must.

As long as it is a weekend and I am not fighting the forces of evil, I am in. PHX is just a Jeep ride away from me here in Southern AZ.

I'll also be in Scottsdale for a meeting the weekend of Oct. 6th.

Hey isn't March 4th a Tuesday?

P.S. Russ, what is this Mondavi crap you guys make in Napa? I miss my Super-Tuscans for 20 Euro :( LOL!

Don't you be dissin' Bob, now.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_European_Jury_Wine_Tasting_of_1997

Dude makes some serious wine, yo. :icon_super:

Hey, do what I do, Lance-- enjoy wines from all over the world-- I can't wait to try out something new, or find an old fave.

Current fave: Bennet Lane White Feasting Wine . . . about $18 a bottle, for . . .ahem . . . those of us "in the industry".

Less than 20€ for all you pikers. ;)

And you all wondered why I wanted to run a B&B . . . spend a few million, and you, too, can save a few bucks on wine. :rolleyes:

Great idea about doing presentations. I would love to hear what others have cookin'. I hope to have a great story to share. I am SO excited for this- it probably isn't healthy.

If it's anytime between March and the end of May, I won't be able to join you all because of baseball. I'm sure I'll be able to make it out for a future one though. I guess it'd kinda be weird to have some random 16 year old in the mix anyway...especially with all of that alcoholic stuff (foreign substance to me! ;)).

As far as guest speakers go, are you thinking of someone here on this forum? 'Cause if you are, I can think of a couple people I would like to hear speak. :smxB:

well, I am already counting that all of us participating in the meeting will present something, as a way to give back to others.

By guest speaker I meant somebody that could provide useful, professional information to all the participants, for example an assets protection lawyer that would like to talk a little bit about his/her area of expertise, or a tax expert, or a big-time real estate developer, or an internet marketing specialist, a sales guru. Somebody that we all can be proud of meeting and having as speaker. Somebody like Sharon Lecter, Diane Kennedy, Tom Wheelwright, etc

I'll let you know what I come up with.

As it turns out myself and a few friends are planning our second annual trip to Vegas around the first week/weekend in March. If it works out, I'll bring some Canadian beer down with me for the meetup.

Wow, this board is moving super fasttttttt. It'd be nice if someone could record the guest speakers and upload/sell the video for those who are unable to attend.

Russ if you are taking orders how about some `01 Pine Ridge Cab. ;) My favorite wine!

We will have to do a little NAPA tour here in the future, I haven't been able to escape to down there in over a year!
