The Quest for a 6-Piece (KFC) VIII
Calendar: Social Events
 
06.08.2011 20:30 to 23:30
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Müllhaus (France)
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: To be decided

I have decided to take it upon myself to organise the next KFC run. It shall be a run away success and I will not flounce my own event.

Meeting place can be decided. I understand it's difficult for some to come into the mighty Basel in their cars so we could meet at the KFC itself.

The rules created by our previous fearless leader will apply (i.e. no farting yada yada yada)

Looking forward to seeing lots of chicken lovers.

Please indicate if you have a car and how many people you will be willing to transport in said car.

Event is ramadhan friendly. Chicken is halal!

with the strong CHF, i wondered if there were other shops nearby for us to spend our cash and if so, i might bring some extra €s
There's a HUGE Carrefour not so far away. It shuts at 20.30 on a Saturday.

Re: The Quest for a 6-Piece (KFC) VIII

OK, I am in after Paintballing. I have a mobility Car, and 2/3 seats spare departing from Balgrist (S18/T11) (but could pick up at Stadelhofen).

P.S.

Does KFC freeze or reheat after refrigerating ? (Normal hygiene rules apply, 170deg for 20 minutes ?)

Is it worth it, I mean does quality/consistency still make it worthwhile after freezing ?

Okay troops. This is a question to the drivers rather than anyone else to be honest.

Meeting point. I think the best idea is to meet up at KFC. There are far too many cars to coordinate a meet up at Basel SBB...and to be honest there isn't enough space.

So we can say to meet up at the latest 8.30pm at the KFC in Mulhouse.

It would be excellent if everyone could be on time so we can eat together. Of course there are always extenuating circumstances that can prevent this.

So if all the drivers could send me their mobile number and I will mine so that we can be in touch if there is any change of plan etc.

71, rue de Mulhouse
68790 Morschwiller Le Bas


This is the address for the KFC. They close 22h30 so it's another reason for us to be on time.


(the emphasis on organisation and time keeping has made me realise I've been in this blasted country too long)

Myself and CJ will be travelling. I will leave earlier, and do some shopping at Carrefoure.

This is the most badly organised KFC I've ever been too.


Me and Castro stood at the counter at the front of the queue for about 30 minutes before anyone even took our order.

Once they gave a zinger without a bun

The one in houssen is much better but also about 30 mins further away.

Re: The Quest for a 6-Piece (KFC) VIII

So do you reckon we should warn them or will that only prompt a strike?

I have a feeling they will be quite busy with Muslims breaking their fast anyway

You're welcome to phone and see what they say...my French isn't nearly good enough

Don't warn them. The look on their faces when 20+ English speakers invade is priceless
