The Summit Elks Club
That's where this function will ostensibly be. Has anyone ever been there? Did you even KNOW an Elk when you were growing up? Where they anything like this?

Hello Honeymooners. We're gathering venue info. for the main event on Saturday. Discussion at the first reunion meeting was to have the casual meet and greet at the Elks Lodge on Friday night, versus, say a bar like The Office, and someplace "fancier" for Saturday. And, no, I've never been inside the Elks Lodge.

What's fancier than the Elks Lodge? For all I know it has marble floors, crystal chandeliers, velvet curtains, and Louis XIV chairs. On the other hand, for all I know, it could be a windowless space with unfinished concrete floors, dented and rusted folding chairs, rickety card tables, and a slapped together plywood bar.

And for those of us who are geographically challenged: Where the heck is the Elk's Lodge? I don't know, when I think of Lodge I think of something like this.. Image

The Elks Lodge is located at 40 Maple Street – I believe near where Roy’s Toy and Hobby used to be in the good old days. It’s above a great restaurant called Fiorino’s. Having never darkened its doorstep I have no clue about the décor. Many classes have held their reunions here, which is why we’re looking into this spot. Great photo, Bruce!!

I live in Canada these days and we once had an elk-lodged between our fence and our garage. It worked itself free after about an hour.

Elk sure tastes good! I go Elk hunting in BC with a bunch of rowdy friends, and we always enjoy shootin'holes in stopsigns and such afterwards! Did you say you're in Ontario now Ted? When I used to live in Eastport Maine i spent a lot of time in New Brunswick. You can look south from Eastport and see Campobello Island NB, just across the channel. When I went to trade school for boatbuilding and yacht design in Eastport I had a BLAST! Canada is a cool place, except their Taxes suck and the RCMP are a buncha dorks. I've gotten about 379 warnings from the RCMP but no speeding tickets due to having Washington plates, so I never obey speed limits in Canada. As far as I'm concerned, the Trans Canada Highway is my own private autobahn, now I just need a car with a bit more power than a Geo Metro or this pickup truck of mine!!! Image

Damn! Roys Hobby and Toy shop- does THAT place ever bring back memories. I remember they used to have a huge Slot Car track in there where you could race full sized slot cars, anyone remember that? You could also buy wrist rocket sling shots there. There was this geek who lived on Canoe Brook Pky named Mr.Burger who hated all the kids in our neighborhood, especially if we stepped on his grass while walking down the sidewalk from the bus coming back from Junior high. He was a really eccentric guy who used to get down on hands and knees to pluck every blade of crab grass from his lawn, and he had a cat, that my dog sometimes got loose and chased. One time he heaved a steel rake at my dog and my dog bit him. Another time he threw a pitch fork at her. So I and another kid in our neighborhood collected a half a paper shopping bag full of dog shit off the center island in the street where everyone walked their dogs, and on Mischief night we dowsed that bad boy with gasoline and lit it on fire on his stoop and rang the bell. We each had Instamatic cameras with flash cubes and we hid in the bushes. He came out and started stomping out the flames and we could smell the dogshit and snapped our photos destroying his night vision while laughing our asses off! He chased us, and we led him to the brook, and jumped off the wall to the sandbar on the far side by the other wall which we climbed to escape, while he was blinder than a bat from the flash cubes destroying his night vision, and he broke his arm. After that happened he threw a rock at my dog, so I shot him in the ass with a ball bearing from my wrist rocket that I got at Roy's Hobby and toy shop! That was a USEFUL store! Am enclosing a photo of me with my sidekick today- I'm the taller of the two people in the photo below- stuff like that helped prepare me for my career of fighting the goverment! Image
