Who knew this place existed? Well, apparently Bill Hall did.
We had a great time at the Fly-In Cafe, home of the WV Skydivers. The place was packed with customers but our table was ready and waiting, just as promised. We had about 10 folks there, which seems to be about average for this get together. We had 20 at the first one but we've settled into a routine number of 10 people.
We had some great food and the folks at the Cafe couldn't have been more gracious. The Cafe started out as just some place for the skydivers and campers to get a bite to eat but now it has evolved into a full blown restaurant. If you are looking for a...
This is an e-mail I received from a very interesting British Car owner. He and his son have been traveling the country in their MGA and have visited the lower 48 states. Check out his e-mail below. I'm also including a link to his website and I have invited him to our Pistons & Pints get together this month.
This from Barney:
I own one 1958 MGA with almost half a million miles on it. I have owned this one since 1977. As of early 2014 it is the only car I own.
I don't necessarily want to "join" your club as a regular member.
I would like to attend at least one club meeting or other club activity.
We had a great time at Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee and Deitzler law firm. We all thank them very much for allowing us to use their building for this month's Pistons & Pints.
Hosted by Charles and Cindy Justice, this was an event to be remembered. The Bar-B-Que was great as well as all the other food. Drinks were plentiful, including Falcor wine from law partners Jim Peterson and Mike Bee's vineyard in California, and our own Bob Wright's wine that he makes right here in the hills of West Virginia.
What a beautiful facility they have. From the handmade woodwork to the finely crafted conference table made by Dennis Peterson, brother...
Pistons & Pints was not as well attended as the first one we had. The first one at Fat Patty's had 20 attendees. The next one was a Happy Days Cafe and we had 10 people. We thought that the lack of pints may have kept the attendance down so we added the pints back by having it at Fat Patty's again this month. The attendance was still at 10.
Next month will be more popular because we are planning a cookout at St. Albans Roadside Park. It's scheduled for Tuesday June 14th. at the usual hour of 6 PM. Kevin Roberts has graciously volunteered to do the cooking. The club will provide the burgers, buns, chips, condiments, etc. and you ge...
We had light attendance but some great car talk. Larry Kopelman was back from Florida and it was great to see him. Kevin Roberts and his daughter were there. Steve Ewing was also there and we talked about the Myaberry's cruise in Friday night. I'll be there and Kevin, Larry and Steve said they may be there. Mark Mason and Connie were there and Mark said he might come to Mayberry's as well.
Dave Neil and Barry McCoy were also there and talking cars. Dan Blackwood talked about his transmission rebuild. Specifically lining up the two sets of splines. That seemed to be a great discovery. I also had a grea...
What a great time everyone had at Fat Paddy's last night. Notice that I spelled it with Ds instead of Ts. Well, it was St. Patrick's Day and we like to do things British. Hence the spelling.
We had 20 people at this event. They were: Bill Michael, Robbie Chenoweth, Angie Chenoweth, Jamie Chenoweth, Charles Justice, Cindy Justice, Connie Mason, Mark Mason, Earl Arentz, Richard Stephenson, Larry Stonestreet, Thomas Stratton, Mark White, Connie White, Pam Blackwood, Dan Blackwood, Todd File, Kevin Roberts, Dave Neil, and Steve Ewing.
We talked about everything from politics to cars. We welcomed our new...
