Since was sitting for most of the meal with the "guys" I just wonder if you all heard the feedback that I was hearing.

They really like bd's. It was good . . . but it seems expensive to me for just getting one vegetable bowl for supper. I've there a lot, but used to load up the meat and chicken. Just sayin' . . . ?

Donna/Slashpine, Thanks so much for coming to our dinner. Sometimes it is hard to meet new people especially when everyone else knows everyone else. Hope you'll come again. Glad you had a blast. Sure hope so. I enjoyed meeting you. Maybe next time I'll get to sit closer to you!! -Marsha West/Slenderella61

I am SO looking forward to tonight. I have been fairly absent from posting here. Bob had another surgery two weeks ago, but he is doing pretty good. I believe he plans to be there tonight.

THANKS to you all for the many goodies and note of encouragement this past month. It's been quite a year, but we both feel the tide is turning a bit. Hope abounds!

See you all tonight.

I'm REALLY looking forward to the team dinner. I was so sad to miss the January meeting. I agree with Eileen . . . they are too much fun! I haven't had one bit of fun since the December team dinner. (Lie.) Of course I've had fun . . . Christmas, New Years, and THE BRONCOS!!! But even my ecstacy over the Super Bowl pales next to the team dinners! And that's saying something! [go broncos] [tee hee]

Our next team dinner will be on Wednesday, January 8, 2014, at 6p.m., at the Hacienda Mexico Restaurante located on 195 E. Main Street in Bartow . Their phone number is 863-533-7600. There is a Facebook page but no web site so I can't give you any guidance on nutrition. I do know that they offer several delicious salads that should fit into our eating plans. The food is not Tex Mex but rather traditional Mexican fare. That means if you want it spicy, you. Have to request that it be made spicy. This is one of my favorite restaurants and I have never had anything there that I didn't like!

We hope that you will join us for an evening of fun and support!

Thanks for the sweet gifts. I think of all of you everytime I see them (often!) and I'm enjoying the smell of fresh fir trees. My articifial tree is getting a complex, as well it should!
Happy holidays to you all!

Team dinner was as much or more fun than usual. Thank you Jane so much for welcoming us to your home. We had so much fun don't think we discussed next one. My calendar says Weds. Jan 8th but I can't read my writing as to the where. Again, both Val & I enjoyed ourselves.

Again, I used the Spark Planner to schedule "appointments" for each of these days. Love that I can get reminders.
Will be kayaking in am next Weds. but should have no problem making dinner. Looking forward to it.
Thank you all for your work on these dinners. They are so much fun.

Thanks to my Spark friends who greeted me with hugs after an absence of two years from the team dinners. You are truly the best! The encouragement from you is priceless and it is so nice to know I have friends in the area. After seven years in Florida, I really don't have friends. Too busy working all this time. When you work out of your home you just don't have the connections to make friends. So it was therapeutic (to say the least) to see everyone and engage in chit chat. I'm so renewed! Thanks for that.

Val is coming with me. I have already used the SparkPeople planner to remind me. I will be doing a trail project early in the morning but will have more than enough time to come home & shower before. Look forward to seeing everyone again.

Our next team dinner will be held on Wednesday, September 11, at 6p.m. at Ruby Tuesdays in Bartow. This Ruby Tuesdays is located at 1710 N Broadway Ave, Bartow FL 33830. The telephone number at this location is (863) 519-9622.

Here is a link to their menu:

www.rubytuesday.com/menu

Please let one of the team leaders know if you plan to attend (and how many will be in your group). We do this so that we can call the restaurant in advance for parties of more than 6. Calling in advance usually cuts down on how long we have to wait to be seated.

So, mark September 11, at 6:00p.m., on your calendar. Prepare yourself for an evening filled with fun and support! Spouses and friends are welcome to attend with you!

Reminder - Team Dinner on 6/13/2013 at 6p.m.

Just a quick reminder that our June team dinner will be held in just a few weeks, on June 13, 2013, at 6p.m. We will be meeting at JFD's Seafood House, located at 315 E Main St. in Bartow, FL 33830. Phone: (863) 519-5337

Team dinners are a great time for face-to-face personal support. We have lots of fun too! So bring your spouse, your friend or your neighbor (or all three) with you. (We usually have several spouses) The larger the group, the more support and fun we have!

Please let one of the leaders know if you will be attending, no later than the day before the scheduled dinner. We like to let the restaurants know in advance that we will be coming especially if there are more than 7 in our party. This decreases the "wait time" before we get seated.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Sorry but I don't get out until 7:30pm. That's too late to expect other people to come. I will be back after I retire.

There was not website with a menu listed but I can tell you that they have a small salad bar, good pork chops and a nice 1950's family atmosphere. The prices are very reasonable; entrées are under $10.00. (At least they were the last time we were there!)

Come and join us for some personal support and fun. Team dinners are open to family and friends. If you haven't joined us before and are feeling a bit shy, please feel free to bring someone with you. The larger the group, the more fun and support we can experience! Mark your calendars now for Thursday, April 11 at 6p.m. and be ready to have a good time!

Please let one of the leaders know if you want to attend the dinner (and how many people will be coming with you) by Wednesday, April 10th. If we have a large number, we like to call ahead of time and let the restaurant know how many will be coming.

I'll be happy to Eileen, if I can remember! LOL It will be great to have to back, when you retire. We will certainly save a place for you and Val!

Let me know who good the food is. I'm curious.
Hope to retire around Labor Day (IF ALL GOES TO PLAN). Will be able to come to team dinners again after retire. Please save a place for me--seven months or so down the road.

Thanks, Cyndi! Gary and I will be there for sure, barring major caatastrophe. Last time I ordered a 6 oz sirloin, carrots/broccoli, and a plain sweet potato. (If you don't order your sweet potato plain you get honey butter and marshmallows, I think!) It was a very delicious and filling meal. I probably only eat red meat once a quarter, so I want it to be good, and this really was! There were non-beef choices as well. My vegan nephew went and ordered sides and was happy there, too.

This discussion thread is for announcements regarding our monthly team dinners. We will try (notice I said try) to post up-to-date information about the upcoming dinners. We will list the time, date and place where the dinner will take place. One of the leaders will send out a team email to all team members with the same information. I would like to request that team members let one of the leaders know if they will be attending so that we can call the restaurant ahead of time and let them know how many of us to expect. This cuts down on the amount of time we have to wait to be seated. We look forward to seeing you at the next team dinner!
