Postby Alcoman » Mon Jan 27, 2014 8:55 pm

I am please to announce that The Friends Of The ALCO Locomotive will sponsor a sit down Dinner at the Shaker Ridge Country Club in Loudonville, New York on Saturday, April 12, 2014 at 5pm.

The guest speaker for this event will be Richard Steinbrenner; author of the ALCO history book; "A Centennial Remembrance" as well as other books on ALCO locomotives.

The full course meal is $40.00 per person. Choice of entree include: Prime Rib, Haddock or Turkey. Please contact John Mech: jmech2@juno.com for detail information.

This area is near Albany, NY and has plenty of train watching areas, motels, and is easy to get to by car, train or plane.(very close to airport).

If you have been in Albany, NY before, its right off of the Interstates. Directions can be provided.

Limited seating at this event. Place your reservations by March 28, 2014.

Sounds awesome. But still a long 12,000km drive from here. Wish I could be there and I wish you well for the dinner.
cheers

Steve,
Maybe some day you can attend. I agree that 6,000+ miles is a little bit of a trip for you.Thanks for commenting.

The Dinner is a little over 3 weeks away and reservations are due by the 28th of March. Get them in soon as you would not miss a fine evening with Rich Steinbrenner and his talk and video and of course the delicious food.

Hi John
Please let me know as soon as you have a date. Laura and I are hoping to be in New Jersey sometime round May next year, so only a short drive away, compared to Alexandra, New Zealand!!!!
Cheers

The ALCO Dinner for 2015 has been postponed due to ongoing health issues. I have scheduled a dinner for APRIL 2016. Details later.
