2015 Spring ActiveRain MeetUp In Manchester, CT

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

This evening I had a great time at Eric Boucher's 2015 Spring ActiveRain MeetUp In Manchester, CT.  This was Eric's first time hosting an ActiveRain MeetUp and he handled it like he had done several ActiveRain Meetup's before.

Tonight's ActiveRain MeetUp was at CW's Chops "n" Catch in Manchester, CT.  The food was very good but the company was even better.  However, there was one thing different about this ActiveRain MeetUp than any other MeetUp I have been to in the past, this was an All Boys ActiveRain.  Some of the boys Conrad Allen, and Praful Thakkar drove several miles and across state lines to be there.

Below are a couple of pictures, of tonight's 2015 Spring ActiveRain MeetUp In Manchester, CT.  I would have taken more pictures but I was having to good of a time talking to everyone there.  Thank you Eric for hosting this MeetUp and doing such a great job.

It looks like every one is having a great time George Souto . Am I wrong but have some of these Rainers had two meet-ups in one day .  I admire the loyalty here . I really appreciate the pictures . Sharing the good times is what it is all about

Hannah Williams - to be fair, I haven't been to an AR meet-up...ever.  So to attend Praful and Larry's today and this one tonight was a slight attempt to make up for lost ground :)

I had a great time at the two events today.  It was super to meet in person those folks with whom I have communicated here in the 'Rain.

Thank you George for posting these pictures and the kind compliments.

I know some of those faces!  If I didn't know better, I'd think that was a bachelor party, where no girls were allowed.  It had to of been a great male bonding opportunity!

Hannah, Eric & Joe car pooled to Praful's MeetUp earlier today, so the two of them wer partying all day long :)

Eric thank you for hosting this MeetUp, and I look forward to attending the next one you host.

Joan the girls were invited to, but none showed up.  But that is OK we still had a good time.

Myrl, it does look a little bit like a bachelor party now that you mention it.

Ed I would have loved to have seen the look an Dagny's face when you showed up ....... LOL

George how fun the "all boys club" and you guys still behaved without having any of the women to keep you in line...looking at the pictures it appears only one person looked like he was going to miss behave and that was Praful Thakkar
