Due to the continuing problem with second
hand smoke at the Canadian Legion Post 84 keeping many members
from attending, the Club has started looking at new venues for
The May 8, 2012 meeting
will be held at the BRASS
POINTE RESTAURANT in Farmington Hills.
The restaurant is located at 24234 Orchard Lake Rd., just north
of 10 Mile Rd. There is easy access to I-696 about 1/2 mile further
As well as being conveniently located and smoke-free, the Brass
Pointe has given us a separate room at no charge (we are currently
paying to use the Legion hall,) starting at
6:00 pm. They have very good food at reasonable prices, as well
as Newcastle Brown on draft.
The Windsor-Detroit MG Club has held their US meetings at this
spot for several years and have nothing but praise for the Brass
Pointe. A group of our members went for dinner after the March
Tech Session to check out the site and were very pleased with
the food and service. In fact, the manager made a point of telling
us they had no problem with our carrying drinks into the parking
lot for "tire-kicking sessions" before the meetings.
For those coming from the East Side (as I am,) the drive is about
15 minutes longer, but well worth the extra time to enjoy a smoke-free
meeting. We certainly hope this move will bring members back to
the meetings and look forward to seeing you there.
Finally, this location is NOT "etched in stone" and
we will consider making it permanent on the basis of attendance
and/or members' input and/or finding other suitable sites.
