Greetings from the flatlands.

It is looking like I will be in Armstrong with my wife and, for a change, smart car for Easter weekend to visit the inlaws. Anyone up for a coffee/tea get-together, probably Saturday afternoon? I have no problem driving to Kelowna if that's where people want to meet, I just vote against the StarBucks in Orchard Mall (went there last year; man was it ever crowded!!!!)

Other suggestions welcome.

Hi from Chilliwack. Would like to meet up with you on Saturday. Just say where.

I might be ready for a little trip to Armstrong by then. You guys decide where you like. Is there some kind of "heritage" cafe in Armstrong? I like old-fashioned stuff wink.gif

I don't really know of any heritage type cafes in Armstrong. If there were any, they would probably be faux type tourist traps now.

Anyone have any suggestions? There is always the DQ in Armstrong, or Vernon, or I know of at least one in Kelowna. Coffee, ice cream, or other real food.

Any place is fine with me. Coffee, ice cream and pie or soup and sandwich. Havent been to Armstrong since 1965 so it may have changed a little since then. My youngest son and I will be coming. See you all on the 7th once I know where.

By the way my son's name is Matt. We will see you at 3PM in beautiful downtown Armstrong.

Greetings.

Change of plan: it would seem from my local contact that "Brenda's Bistro" has been closed since september. So, right downtown, in the Armstrong Hotel, is Beemers Bistro.

Any of the rest of the Okanogan crowd going to make it?

I'm heading to the Kootenays tomorrow for work and will be home late Thursday or Friday. Pending any family plans for Easter (none yet but may go to Revelstoke to see my mom) I should be available for Saturday afternoon.

Hmmmm, did not see this thread till Bil showed me. Thanks Bil. I would like to be there because that is my Birthday but the problem is we have already been invited to a friends because it is my B-day and unless things change will have to go there. If for some reason something does change we will be there tho so don't totally count us out. Too bad one can't be in two places at one time, would have been nice to see all you guys on my one day of the year.

I also had not seen this post until Bil showed me:) I'd really like to attend but our family is having Easter Sunday brunch on Saturday this year. I believe it's around 12, don't know if I can get there in time but I'm definitely going to try:) Hopefully see you all there:) doublethumb.gif

Glad you can make it RubyRedRacers!

Have to remember to save some room on the calendar because Doris&Shorty get back from AZ in a couple of weeks and we need to have a "Return of the Snowbirds" GTG! South end of the Valley next time wink.gif The Princeton, Osoyoos, Oliver, Penticton, Grand Forks gang!

We will be leaving here around noon. Is there a meeting place in Kelowna to continue the trip to Armstrong? If not see you there. Beemers Bistro

How about calling my cell @ 250-869-5889 when you get to Westbank and I'll catch up to you? Maybe meet at the Dilworth DQ parking lot just past Orchard Park. Sounds like smartsally and DaNa, if they can make it, will be a bit late.

Danno's in Vernon. Not sure if Roy and Matt are coming through Kelowna from CHWK or straight up #1 to Kamloops and down to Armstrong that way...

Weather is expected to be awesome - sunny and 23*C... Man, if the Starlight http://www.starlightdrivein.ca/ was open for the season, I'd hit Enderby later for a drive-in movie! opens May 4th.

Matt and I will be coming up the Coke and Connector then through Kelowna. If you can give us a time to meet in Kelowna we will try to make it.

Well if RRR leaves Penticton at noon, they'll get to K-town around 1pm. Now we know you're coming this way, we can have a coffee and wait for you in DQ. I'll likely get there first.

Come over the bridge and straight through town. A fair piece along on your right you'll see the big Orchard Park Mall. Dilworth Centre is just past that, right after Skogie's Car Wash, also on the right.

Don't rely on me for directions to the Armstrong Hotel - I guess it'll just be on the main drag in Armstrong...

I've been to Armstrong probably a couple hundred times (not counting times I've just driven past on the highway). There's an Armstrong Hotel? dunno.gif Shows how much I pay attention. I'm sure we'll find it.

Is it one of the ones on the road parallel to the highway, or more downtown?

Yes, I looked that up as well. It just doesn't seem right from what I know of Armstrong. That seems like it is right by the golf course, and I don't recall a hotel there, unless it is in an old house. I could very certainly be wrong.

Will be leaving Chilliwack at 9am. See you in Kelowna at the DQ at ONE
Matt and Roy

Greetings.

We are over at the in laws right now. I checked out the location of the hotel earlier today. It is beside the railway tracks in downtown Armstrong, like Bil's map shows. To get to it, you will have to take the one-way street on the wrong side of the tracks, then cross at Okanogan Street. We will hit there a bit early, so look for the blue smart out front.

See you all shortly.

It was good to meet everyone, except Bil of course. Beautiful day for a drive - 23 degrees and clear skies.
Not that it wasn't good to meet Bil, it's just that we had already met, so in this case "it was good seeing you again, Bil"!
All the pics I took are posted below.

It was great meeting everyone, and glad to hear that everyone made it back home safely. We have a couple more pictures to add, but just got home, and haven't unpacked the camera yet. Tomorrow after work. (which happens to be now)
