NorCal BF Holiday Dinner Pics

Thanks to all that came out for this. It was a lot of fun, and I'm glad everyone had such a great time. Thank you UmneyDurak, parity, rustydog, bostic, msincredible, blastradius, luludog, sanjosebob and taxi777. It was great to meet up with everyone, and significant others. It's also good to see everyone in normal street clothes ... for those that were wondering, there was no lycra to be found, but msincredible did ride her motorcycle over, so she was the only one that came in with a helmet

I forgot to mention, that Gumba's, in downtown Sunnyvale, is right across the street from the Sunnyvale Caltrain station.

Ok, some pics.

Henry (Blastradius), with body armor


luludog and taxi777

Take 2 (without glasses)

Wow you guys look great. Good to see faces with names.

Good to see you are doing better, Blast Radius. Hope you heal up 100 per cent.

I was hoping to celebrate the two mods too, but couldn't get you and x at the party. But I imagine we'll try to do more of these.

Hey, that body armor looks good on Henry. New fashion trend, perhaps?

Still waiting on pics that Henry and Pete took.

Blastradius was in an accident, and the body armour is a brace, to restrict movement. But Henry can explain a little better.

I was telling Jon that I was going to try to make it last min - if not to eat (reservations) at least to stop by and hang out with you guys. But when you had to change it more south it was going to be hard for me to attend.

Sorry, couldn't make reservations in Palo Alto. Still haven't met you, or Jon ... would have been cool.

Yeah, I probably could have made it had I been paying attention, really long drive or not.

"Oh, it's the 15th today?!"

Hey X. The next time that happens, if it's not too much trouble, maybe we can go in the same car and I can pitch in for gas?

Damn, that sucks.

Glad to see it isn't slowing him down too much though.

By the way, if he starts chanting "Destroy all humans" you might want to pull it off him.
