About our meetup in Providence, here are the details I have so far. The date is Sunday, August 5, at 5PM. The location is on the East Side of Providence but might move slightly depending on how many people plan to show up.
I have set up a disposable email address where you can contact me directly for more details. I'll just shut it off after plans are all set up. The email is
o77c-uty2 at spamex.com
I'll also respond via private message through the board.
This is just to get together and swap stories and experiences with other owners, no formal events or plans. We might all go out to dinner somewhere cheap afterwards.
Here are the details for the Insight owners meetup in Providence, RI, this Sunday, August 5, at 5PM. The original plans were to meet at someone's house, so I was being more private with the details. It turned out there was a last minute conflict there, so we're meeting in a restaurant parking lot. Therefore, there's no privacy of address to worry about, and I'm just putting out all the info for anyone who wants to attend.
We will be meeting in the parking lot of the Greggs Restaurant on North Main Street in Providence. It's a casual family restaurant, not expensive. The address is 1303 North Main Street, Providence, RI 02904. Since I'm expecting a small number of cars, I didn't talk to the restaurant about it. I figure if a few of us plan to have dinner there, they won't mind. If it turns into a big crowd, there's a much larger area a few blocks away.

Just wanted to say I posted the pictures to my Shutterfly account so you can view them or have them printed. These are partly mine and partly Gary's. You don't have to register to view them. Sorry for the delay in getting them posted. If you want the digital files let me know and we'll figure out a way to get them to you.
