I realize that the 2005 season is just winding down, but I was wondering what y'all were thinking about for next year. I have offered a couple of times to host a bash down here, but I would also like to make one of the larger bashes this year. The more warning I have, the more likely I will be able to attend. I would really like to meet some of you next year, and share a cold drink.

Funny I was thinking about this today. It is getting close to time I have to put in for vacation days for next year. I am going to attend a Bash this year, if I have to call in sick to do it.

I have been pushing 80 hours a week since the hurricanes, and although the money has been great, I'm looking forward to blowing off some steam. After this, I will have no problem calling in sick!

Last weekend in June for Mecca Bash here on Long Island. I have a feeling it may be a big one this year. :biggrin:

Count me in if you can find a place for me to crash! Also, not to offend the hosts, but these engagements are estrogen free right?

Depends on how much testostorone the estrogen person has http://bbq-brethren.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif

Never brave enough myself--maybe in 2006 http://bbq-brethren.com/forum/images/smilies/redface.gif

There's always the trailer!!

It's mostly estrogen free - excepting Sharon and Jackie. Some of the local wives show up on Saturday evening - otherwise we're free to scratch and fart as neede.

If I can get to a bash (hope Hope HOPE) can I bring wifey? The Fragile Flower has been known to fart and scratch!

There is nothing of course written in stone, but the rule of thumb has been no lady types doing the allnight thing. It is great to meet a new brother for a few hours, if that is all that they can stay, and if wifey is there that is fine. So far there have been no lady over nighters. We tend to get pretty drunk, rowdy, loud, and crude come night fall.

Let's see, a chance to party with some guys who love to BBQ, drink, and chew the fat. No wife, No kids, No problem. Wife will be happy to be rid of me for a couple of days.

I'm looking forward to it, especially since i live on LI and read all the great things about some of the other recent Brethren bashes.

I'll definitely do my share (clean up, prep, bring beer - whatever is needed !!)

A long day/evening away from the wife and daughter is well deserved......

Bashes go for 3-4 days. Mini bashes are 1. People start arriving late thursday thru to midday Friday, and leave sunday afternoon. Required airport for local pickup is Islip Macarthur. Otherwise JFK and LaGuardia are about an hour away, and anyone coming in there is on there own to get here. Friday night is party night and all day saturday and saturday night. There are several local hotels/motels within 15-20 mins for anyone who wants a bed and privacy.

Although no one has ever said not to bring family, the overnight stuff/early morning hours would make for a little bit of uncomfortable situations and its probably best avoided. During the day/evening the locals come by with anyone/everyone thats fine and encouraged, but come 2-3am it starts looking like a locker room. Sharon always makes herself very scarce except for the evening partying where she the one giving out the shots.

We have them in the summer so sleeping arrangments are.... crash where ever you can find a spot. For the NY bash, i have a trailer that sleeps 4, then 3 couches, 2 recliners and the rest are just spots on the floors or outside in the hammock and patio lounges. Even tents. Sleep is not much of something we think about.

Food.. 2 full fridges.. we usually cook more than we can eat.
Drink... 4 full 150 qt coolers.
Cabo.. one bottle each. :shock: :twisted:

We usually start talking bash around february. Think this one is gonna be a big one. Last count there was about 15 of us on long island alone.

This is just my opinion:

I go to a Bash for ME. I drink too much, cuss to much, smoke cigars, and have MY TIME at least one weekend of the year.

I love my wife dearly - she's my best friend. I WILL NOT EVER expose her to the inner sanctum of the Brethren. She knows I go to a Bash to let loose.

Ladies at a Bash put a real crimp in the festivities - again, this is my opinion. They don't really want to be part of a 96 hour frat party.

This "coed" question has come up before - and my answer now is what is was then - I won't attend a coed Bash - it would be a waste of my time.

Selfish, maybe. But it's the way I feel about it. I don't know about the rest of you but my wife get's a lot more evenings out with the girls and girl weekends than I do time out with the guys. This one weekend a year is mine and mine alone.

Mista, I was just cheking flights, and they are ranging from 261 outta LAX. Considering how close to the 4th of july weekend that will be, will need to get tickets early.

You are right about that. Was that a flight into Islip? Southwest goes there...

If the TXFO's really want a bash--plan one to celebrate Vance's son's graduation from college.

Phil, just to be sure, are we looking at the weekend of June 23rd-25th, or June 30th-July 2nd? Also, are these dates pretty much set in stone? I am going to go ahead and make plans to attend, but I still have to figure out transportation. I would like to make a road trip out of it, but it wouldn't be much fun alone. However, you can bring a lot of fun things in a car that you can't bring on a plane!:twisted: If you want, PM me with any requests from us Southerners, or we should be able to pick up some roadkill on the way.

Figured I'd check the calendar in an attempt to not make myself look too stupid, and I noticed that BRD will be 97 this year. He must just look younger sitting on his stool:shock: !

as of now, its 23-25, but arlie brag may be having a competition in here that weekend, with a $100,000 purse. So We may push the bash to june 30. So, the set in stone part is it IS one of those weekends. Next question would be is that considered a 4th of july weekend to the airlines where they blackout and pump the prices. if so, then we can make it the weekend before the 23-25.

how about MOAB...MOTHER OF ALL BASHES July 4th weekend. What a blowout that would be. Like a 5 day bash. Holy crap!!! I think it's a once in a lifetime thing. Lets set that date so people can lock in tickets. "Hello Newsday? Come on over with a camera"

11-16-2005, 09:57 AM
4th of july would be bad for me, being able to get away from the family for a weekend is one thing, but to do it on a holiday is next to impossible, if I want peace and quiet in my life.

11-16-2005, 10:01 AM
agree with that... to many families would be left behind. For me, June 27 is my wedding anniversary. So its tricky enuf taking my wedding anniversary weekend every year to do this, but to top it off with the 4th would be a killer.

11-16-2005, 11:46 AM
How about the weekend of June 16th-18th, as this would give a week off before the holiday weekend?

BBQchef33
11-16-2005, 12:04 PM
this is definately a show of growth to our little world on the net.. :mrgreen: bash talk usually starts in February.. its only November!!! :rolleyes: we cant even book flights this far ahead, so we have a month or 2.

So june 29 to july 2 is definately out becase of the holiday.

June 23-25 is tentativly set awaiting word from Arlie if that big $$ competition is gonna go. he was in CT a couple weeks ago talking to the casino where it will be held. We should now soon, he may even chime in here.

June 16-18 is the Fallback date if 6/23 falls thru.

Don't mean to be a pain, but I have the chance to take the time off now, when later in the year I might not be able to. Now that we have a handle on it, we can start day-dreaming and stocking up on bourbon!

What's the status of the midwest Bash being at Kankakee at the contest where Brethren were promised 20 acres to party all weekend AND compete? I thought that was a GREAT idea!

Although no one has ever said not to bring family,

And bringing your farking dog or pet is a definite no.

"Can I bring my dog in the yard?" "No"

"Can I just tie him up to that tree?" "No"

"That tree, the one right there." "What part of no are you not getting"

"No really, can I just keep my dog in the yard"

"Alex, can I buy a clue for $100?"

I still laugh at that whole episode, and the look on Phils face. Guy just didnt understand no means no.

Yeah, these things are a ball. Here are some photos of Q-fest II. Anybody wanting to attend that next year, it is the first weekend in November. We tour a couple of great 100 year old Q-joints in Lockhart Texas. Smitty's and Kreuz's .Check out the pit photos at Smitty's. The fires are right on the ground next to the pit! We have the event at the "Ranch" of Texas BBQ Rub Owner Bill Cannon. Zilla was there. I'm sure it is alot like ya'll bashes! I'll try and make it! I'm the one smoking the cigars in the photo's Woody

I'd like to get the dates hammered down ASAP so I can book the flight. My credits on SWA expire sometime in June, so if we can't figure it out soon I'll make a mini bash in some brother's yard in TX or IL before then.
