It is April 22 and 23 in Bellevue, Washington. We are already signed up. I’d be up for a meetup on the 23rd after the seminar is over, if anyone is interested. More

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. An Afternoon with Friends and Justice Thomas

 

Gary Robbins, Bob Thompson, and I held a Ricochet mini-meetup on Saturday in Scottsdale, AZ. We met at the Il Capo Restaurant for a nice Italian lunch — Gary’s treat, so thanks again, my friend. In our lunch discussion, we reached complete political agreement on all issues. Gary is now a confirmed, ardent Trump enthusiast who loves walls and Big Beautiful Coal and hates Adam Schiff. No, wait, not yet. (He will be, once the Gary pod growing in my garage is matured.)

After lunch, Gary and I watched the new documentary about Justice Thomas, called Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words. I enjoyed the movie, which was a touching and interesting presentation of the life of this outstanding Justice and American hero. There was little focus on his jurisprudence, and much focus on his extraordinary life story, from extreme rural poverty on the Georgia coast during the Jim Crow era, to his study in a Catholic seminary, his days as a student radical in the ’60s, and his eventual development into a Reagan Republican.

It’s time for another Chicago Ricochet Meetup. It’s been a few years, but I’m finally going to be able to go to the Chicago Auto Show again. We will have the meetup either Saturday, February 15th or Sunday, February 16th. I’ll be in town Friday night as well, but since that is Valentine’s Day I […]

If this isn’t the record for the earliest ever Ricochet Meetup announcement, I’d like to know what is. I don’t know who to blame for infecting me, but I clearly have Ricochet Meetup Fever. Among many smaller affairs, I co-hosted the big Montana Meetup in 2017, I put together a science fiction convention meetup in […]

Some of you are aware of the big Ricochet Meetup we held in 2017 in Bigfork, Montana. You can read @rushbabe49‘s reports here, here, and here. At the time, a few of us were thinking that we ought to do a similar meetup one day in the Black Hills. There are a lot of tourist […]

Due to the success of last year’s Milwaukee Meetup 1: The Sprecherung and by popular demand* we’ll be having another meetup in the Cream City. Following the pattern established last year, the tentative dates will be July 26-28. The itinerary, such as it is, will also be following last year’s patterns, though it is subject […]

I’ve got a contract to perform near (south of) Syracuse NY in the middle of August, which will leave evenings open for dinner Monday, August 13th to Thursday, August 16th. (August 17th is a travel evening to Maine, for the meetup there on the 18th.) I’m not opposed to driving an hour (from Cortland, NY) […]

Already posted in the RicochetMeetup group, but brought here for wider distribution: Another month, another Atlanta meetup. Next week has June’s third Thursday, and Bryan and I agree that it’s the NorthEast quadrant’s turn for a convenient location. Ippolito’s in Suwanee was such a nice spot back in February (with @spin and @jpark) that I […]

Yes, 2019. Of course it seems absurd to advertise an evening meetup so far in advance, but there is a reason. Some of us are going to be in Layton, Utah (a little north of Salt Lake City) for WesterCon 72, a fairly large science fiction convention that runs from July 4-7, 2019. Since many […]

All, I hope everyone enjoyed the meetup last night. Here are some photographs from the meeting. The lighting was a challenge, but I think the spirit of the evening was captured. I can send along the full resolution images to anyone who wants them. More

Last week, Ray and I flew to Colorado Springs for a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar. It was a whirlwind trip for us-we flew in Tuesday and out again on Wednesday. But in between we got to listen to speakers Dr. Larry Arnn (president of Hillsdale), Sharyl Atkisson, Frank Luntz, and our (formerly) own Mollie […]

Back in January I wrote this post about trying to put together a Ricochet Meetup in Seattle or thereabouts. Now that we have an actual plan I reckoned that I ought to write a fresh post so someone doesn’t have to read three pages of comments to get the latest (final?) iteration of the plan. […]

After consulting with @mattbalzer, @katiekoppelman, and @hankrhody we’ve chosen Saturday, April 7th as the date to hold a Ricochet Meetup in Alexandria, Minnesota. The venue will be Doolittles Woodfire Grill at 4409 State Highway 29 South. I suppose we’ll congregate at 6:00 pm unless someone wants to suggest a different starting time. Come join us. […]

I’m going to visit some family members in Seattle this summer and knowing that there are Ricochet members galore out there, I reckon we ought to have a Ricochet Meetup. I’ve consulted a few Ricochetti already and we figure Saturday, June 30th will be the day. We’re also thinking that instead of the usual evening-only […]

No, I am not falling over drunk in the picture . . . Last night, neutral observer and I hooked up with Blondie and MartyB for the mini-Meetup in Fuquay-Varina. Just like the first mini-Meetup in F-V, we ate at the Aviator Smokehouse (“Beer Is My Friend”). This time however, we ventured into higher realms […]

At last! It’s happening! And rest assured that it will definitely be happening!!!
