RESTAURANT RSVP SIGNUP [Archive] - Fly Fishing Forum


04-29-2010, 09:07 AM
I spoke with the restaurant manager today and there is a change - he can not block off the area for us for less than $35.00 per person. Sorry about that screw-up on my part. The good news is we now have a dedicated room for the clave dinner. There will be slide presentations and other activities, like our own fly show. I'll talk to people about doing tying presentations over the projector etc. We'll also have a raffle drawing. Acoustic performances, whatever. It will be more fun and a longer time - but it will be $10 more bucks for the dinner and the room.

PRICE CHANGE $35.00 per head. I still need an accurate headcount to commit.

*** Please accept my apologies. All need to re-confirm at the new (final) price from the manager ***

(currently 19 confirmed)

Please RSVP to this thread if you are absolutely committing to attendance to the Spring Clave Fly Event
Saturday 7:30pm at Del Mar Bistro, 907 Main Street, Chatham MA.

Manager suggests 7:30p for cocktails. Dinner will follow. We need 35 people.

04-29-2010, 12:49 PM
I'm in. Is the bistro pet friendly?

04-29-2010, 12:51 PM
I don't think any restaurants allow pets in MA however it is a tent area (where the bands play) and if you wear dark glasses and a cane they might allow it :wink:

04-29-2010, 01:25 PM
I'll be there. Looking forward to it.

04-29-2010, 01:36 PM
I will be there and am sure that GMFlyfish will also attend. Convenient parking?

(I will be usual!) :hihi:

i'm in for dinner

04-30-2010, 12:42 PM

I spoke to the manager today and for this many people he can give us the entire function room but the fixed price menu will be $35 per person.

The good news is projectors, fly tying demos, raffles - are all fair game. Think of it as OUR fly show dinner.

I think it's worth it, and a great way to take things to the next level.

Please do me a favor and re-confirm your attendance.


04-30-2010, 01:19 PM
confirmed + yada yada to meet the darned 10 character posting minimum

04-30-2010, 01:39 PM
I am assuming this is on the 23 of May? Then I am in.

04-30-2010, 01:49 PM
Saturday, 22nd of May. Hope to see you Warren, thanks Jeff.

04-30-2010, 03:30 PM
Errr I meant the 22 Juro. My mind was most likely elsewhere when I posted that. OK Then I am definitely in unless the world stops turning.

04-30-2010, 05:09 PM
VTLoon and JimD still good to go! :)

Jim Miller
04-30-2010, 05:38 PM

Good Job Juro

Still in;)

05-01-2010, 09:22 AM
John - Can you do a fly tying demo? I will unlock the deepest darkest secrets of the deep eel :chuckle:

05-01-2010, 04:31 PM
Me? are you sure? I am flattered...sure....Only if you do the deep eel... I will do crab, flounder and some other eel. What about some of your Art work...I have seen. If Pete Gray is around he has a good explaination of the use of the new stuff..with the blue light which name escapes me for the moment.

Reconfirmed to be there.

05-02-2010, 09:51 PM
Yes - I am still IN :smokin:

05-04-2010, 11:50 AM
OK - we are still short of quota but I have confirmed the reservation at the $35 fixed price multi-course arrangement at DEL MAR on Main st, Chatham 7:15-7:30 for cocktails the weekend of the clave.

*** PLEASE RSVP HERE if you haven't already and are going to attend. ***

thanks and really looking forward to the 2010 season :smokin:

05-04-2010, 05:02 PM
Count me in.
Juro ,will you need the 35 up front ?

05-04-2010, 10:05 PM
Yes indeed, I'll be there.......

Mike Oliver
05-05-2010, 05:07 AM
Ok Juro, the three Brits me, Mike Cooper and Allan Hughes are re-confirmed for Saturday dinner.


05-05-2010, 07:51 PM
Count me in. I've got clearance from the "control tower"!

Mike Oliver
05-07-2010, 07:31 AM
How we doing for numbers.

05-07-2010, 08:21 AM
If we don't get the quota, they will have to put other parties in the function area so as not to waste tables. That will change the nature of the event from a mini-fly show to a nice dinner party with a great bar. Not so bad, but I would much prefer the mini-flyshow!

We have a little time


Mike Oliver
05-07-2010, 08:47 AM
I maybe able to get a few more Brits to come. Just how many short are we.


05-07-2010, 09:05 AM
More brits? - this could get raucous! :smokin: My tan shoes are still brown from Guiness the last time the brits invaded Chatham :)

We need 35-40 to totally reserve the entire function room. I will arrrange for display tables, projector etc - and turn it into a fly show if we can get the whole room. Possibly get Chris from FTC, I'll ask Jeff Smith if he's got a good slideshow, etc - so it would be a big advantage to get the 35-40 people and lock up the room!

Mike Oliver
05-07-2010, 12:19 PM
Racous, what us old past it Brits. We gave up on the dark brew except when in S. Ireland a while ago and moved on to Sam Adams Boston Lager. You get a paler stain on your Tan shoes Juro.

Lets hope we get the required numbers.


05-09-2010, 10:01 AM
I am planning on attending the dinner (and fly show?) on Saturday evening.
Thanks. GMflyfish

05-12-2010, 10:50 AM

05-13-2010, 08:01 AM
Put me down for a yes... I'm still somewhat up in the air but if I can't make it I'll mail you a check

05-15-2010, 06:15 PM
I'll be there with two others.
Can't wait to see everybody


05-16-2010, 06:42 AM
count me and judith in for the dinner

05-19-2010, 07:56 AM
Ok I'm a definite now. I'll actually be up there from Friday until the following Thursday.

Juro or Adrian,

Turns out I have to fly up so if one of you guys don't mind throwing in an extra acoustic...... :smokin:

05-19-2010, 08:03 AM
I've got you covered :smokin:

05-20-2010, 06:18 PM

I probably won't know until Friday night if I'll be able to make the trip, so I won't plan on attending the group dinner. But if I do make it out there I will try to join up with you guys at the restaurant after dinner time so I can participate in the rest of the festivities. I hope to cross paths with some of the crew during the day on Saturday as well. Not sure if any specific plans were made for meeting times/places on Saturday aside from the rip trip or other shuttle destinations. If so, then it would be great to meet up with some of you on Saturday morning. Send a PM if you don't want to broadcast the plans. If I don't hear from anyone, then I'll probably start at the refuge (hopefully before the first shuttle departs) and play it by ear from there.


05-20-2010, 07:35 PM
due to work emergency i will not be on the cape this weekend. Thanks Chuck
