Post by: GoldBowTie on 06/11/18 02:53 AM
It is time again to plan to attend our annual Avalanche Pizza GTG.

I called Pastor Jim to make arrangements to once again use the church parking lot and restrooms.
We are set to use the First Baptist Church parking lot from 10:00 until 4:00.
The church will be open for us to use the restrooms.

Meet at the First Baptist Church in Athens at your leisure.
The First Baptist Church is located across the street from Avalanche Pizza.
336 East State Street
Athens, OH 45701


Please place your pizza order as early as possible once you arrive.
Or maybe call ahead while driving in?
Check out their on-line menu in the link and call 740-594-4664 to order.

Thank you.  Will do.
Right now this GTG is looking like a "Maybe."
Title: Re: Avalanche Pizza, October 13 2018
Post by: OldVMer on 08/16/18 03:43 PM
Hate to turn this GTG into even more of a "maybe", but those other October plans I mentioned in my previous post have materialized and overlap this GTG.  We won't be able to make it for Avalanche Pizza in October.

There are eight weeks remaining until this GTG.
I will wait to see if any others might confirm attending.
If not, it only takes a phone call from me to the church to cancel.

Post by: frito on 08/31/18 04:16 PM
What is Bridge Day?
The New River bridge in WV.  The one day of the year where anything goes - bungee jumping, base parachuting, etc.  It's the tallest bridge in the US.

Maybe it's the tallest single span bridge.  It held some US record when we went in the early 90's.  Was the second largest at that time since the no. 2 was built in early 2000's. 

Regardless, a lot of crazy schinanigans happen on bridge day.  I don't recall, is that the same weekend they typically have the major water release I to the Gaulley?

You may meet me at Summit Racing about 7:30 if it is not out of your way.
Then the usual meeting at the Subway/Dairy Queen/gas station at exit 93 off I77 and planning to leave there by 8:15.
We will stop again for bathroom break at the gas station at exit 6 off I77 around 9:30.
Then across 550 to Athens.

This breaks my heart to say this but for the first time since 2002 it looks like we are going to miss a AV pizza GTG.  :needhug:
 Taney has been in the hospital the last couple days for atrial flutter. They fixed that and his heart is doing good and he feels good, but now his Potassium is too high. They had gotten it down last night so we were still hoping they would discharge him this morning and we could make it today, but his last results showed it back up so I guess we aren't gonna be there.  :'( We will miss seeing you all so much. Have a great day and a safe trip everyone.  :needhug:

I'd have to say this was the coldest since I've been coming to Avalanche Pizza GAG, but always fun to hang out with great friends, and also have some good pizza, and for my first pizza in 8 months, that Rainbow veggie was really good, the chicken and waffles was only so-so.

For those who couldn't make it but wanted to, you were missed.  For those who didn't want to come, you missed it!  For those who made, it was a wonderful time had by all.  I am very grateful to those who put the effort in this to make it happen.  This was my one year anniversary as an AVI owner and what  a way to celebrate.  I had a great time.  the pizza was good and the company even better.  I look forward to many more gatherings.  Thank you so very much for the warm welcome (What cold?).  Just a great time overall.
