    1. A support group for members of the Alaska Outdoors Directory. Though one time thought to be a fictional support group dedicated to helping fellow members addicted with this forum, the efforts of a few vocal supporters of late have made their presence be known. There are thought to be FA chapters present now in Ketchikan, North Pole, Fairbanks, The Valley, Big Lake/Houston, Butte/Sutton, the Kenai Peninsula, and Anchorage.
    2. A way for members of the Alaska Outdoors Directory to meet in person, and put a face to that name.

    The Valley Chapter of FA is proud to announce that their first fellowship meeting will be held on Dec 1 at the time and location noted above.
    We wanted to have it earlier but we had to postpone it till the 1st of the month so our Big Lake/Houston chapter members could attend. We were concerned that Glacier Canyon Grill in Wasilla would not honor our Houston friends' Quest cards for appetizers and libations, after all, the dividends are spent and the state social services checks don't come in till the 1st.

    Although the notorious AlaskaChuck, chairman of the Anchorage FA Chapter was going to have his group meet about this same time, he has postponed his meeting in favor of being able to attend this one, since many other chapters are coming from far across the cold dark tundra for this Valley Chapter FA
    The infamous Kingfisherktn, chairman of the Southern Alaska FA Chapter and well know for his hunting prowess, elderly nature yet boyish attitude, and good humor, will travel well over 1,000 miles to attend this FA Valley chapter meeting.
    The less famous yet much nicer COtoAK, representing the North Pole FA Chapter, is rumored (though not to be condfirmed) to be traveling well over 300 miles to attend this FA chapter meeting as well. COtoAK has well established herself as a climber, hiker, hunter, outdoorswoman, trapper, and as a real Alaska outdoorswoman..
    I'd like everybody to encourage our Butte/Sutton chapter members that they are more than welcome, but due to forum charters and legal issues we're disappointed to announce tentatively our 1st F.A. meeting is Not 420 friendly. This is under scrutiny however and we're gonna leave the ultimate decision up to whomever at the FA meeting is the loudest.

    There will be no soliciting at our meeting to join any side groups like the SCADA for instance (thewhop2000) unless said solicitation is consensual in nature. If you would like to purchase high Alaskan wild salmon do not look up fullbush after the meeting. ;-) ;-)
    If there are any questions, please direct them to “acting” Valley FA Chapter chairman FamilyMan. The “acting” is because in the only election held, only fullbush voted, so FamilyMan won, by a margin of one vote (see????, write in votes do matter!).

    Default Q & a

    And I tried to be so very complete on the invite... guess not. OK, your answers are:

    Just the normal FA agenda: To help and support each other's forum addiction (along these lines, I'll be bringing my MTA bill for you to pay, for me). And the normal greeting, as you walk thru the door, everyone is to say "HI, AKRES!"

    Yes.

    Yes, right behind the car parking lot by the door (at the rear of the building; drive around) there is a very large empty lot that does not seem to be posted. Of course there's like 500 rooms at the hotel upstairs, so the lot is pretty substantial to begin with.
    Quote Originally Posted by Akres View Post

    Good idea, bring some good ones. Best hunting story that contains no blatant lies wins.
    Quote Originally Posted by Akres View Post

    Yes to the former and no to the latter. Although, with prior permission, even moderators are welcome to attend.
    This meeting is rated R, so you'll have to leave your x-rated stuff at home.

    I spoke with their mgmt last night, and just for us they will waive their normal group policy of requiring a common check and computed tip. Separate checks for us. I'd suggest arriving hungry; I've never had a bad dish there, and there isn't anything on the appetizer menu that I have not tried. Click on the menu link provided (and remember to figure appetizers at 1/2 the posted price until 6pm).

    I took Drifter there awhile back and he's right about the smoked salmon&crab dip. Most times I go there I get one of those to go, and spread it on a half-baked salmon fillet, then finish baking it. It is superb.

    And if you're going to get take out appetizers to share with a sig other later make sure to order it before the price goes back to normal at 6pm. I'm pretty sure the wing special and rib eye dinner special go all night though.

    ....Unfortunately I will be unable to attend, as I will actually be hunting instead of telling half true stories about hunting :-) But I will be sure to enjoy my time in the woods for everyone.... Crab dip sounds really good maybe I can get some to go!
    60% of men don't know what they have until they lose it
    15% aren't sure but figure it's better than nothing
    25% know exactly what they have and would do anything to lose it or give it to someone else

    Drop by there any day M-F, 4-6pm and get yourself some. They have some fine cold beverages for while you wait too. Tell Ruthie I sent you! (The guy with the 12/1 happy hour reservation)
