MRE Meet Up 2019 August 17th!

Post by BlackDogBob » Wed May 15, 2019 5:28 pm

Hey Everyone! The Meetup for 2019 is all set!!!

We will host it on Saturday, August 17th, 2019 at MRE Nation in Simpsonville, KY.

Louisville is the closest airport. For those driving, we have a very large parking area. For those bringing a camper, PM me and we will get you hooked up with an awesome campground.

Across the street from us is a brand new Hampton Inn, and behind the Hampton Inn is a Cigar Bar that we are members of. Less than a quarter mile from us is an Outlets Mall that is only a couple years old, so bring your spouses with you.

We are negotiating rates with the Hampton Inn for those dates.

We will have a couple seminars on topics like:
Maintaining your collection
YouTube reviews
and manufacturing MREs.

Also, all who attend will get:
A free commemorative T Shirt
Design and Build your OWN MRE for FREE

There is NO CHARGE to attend! Come as you are and bring a friend!

If you are planning to attend, please comment in this thread. When you have confirmed your attendance, PM me your T-Shirt size.

Hope to see you all here!
Have German,Russian,Canadian,Lithuanian,Dutch, Israeli,Spanish,HDRs,LRPs,French,US RCWs,FSRs,Italian,Croatian, Polish,Aussie, Czech, Malaysian, Swedish, Australian and Norwegian Arctics.

Amazing! This would be my first get together! I'm going to double check my work schedule, and as long as the refinery I work at doesnt have any turnarounds scheduled I will be there for sure! So I'm a maybe at the moment! Thanks Bob! You guys rock!

A tip for anyone renting a car at Loovle "Hey, that's how we pronounce it" Airport...

I booked with Enterprise, where sub-compact cars start at $80/day and go up. Except for "luxury" grade cars, which are only $57/day. Nutso, but who am I to turn down a deal like that?

The Hotel runs about $120/night unless we get a group discount price. AAA rate is $115. I haven't booked there yet, in case we do get a reduced rate.

I'm getting in about Happy Hour Friday. First round's on me.

Looks like it's about a 7 hour drive for me from North Carolina - so I can take my car and load it up with whatever goodies I can put together between now and then.

I'll get there Friday so will definitely be up for Happy Hour!
