PDA

View Full Version : Fall Bash date is set

Looks like it needs to be September 15th,16th, and 17th, as a competition has sprung up on the following weekend that we may be wanting to do.


Sooooo..... Let the planning begin.

Anyone that is flying in needs to coordinate and we can't just get tickets willy-nilly as the airport is an hour away in good traffic. We first need to know who is flying in and what day. Thursday arrivals are welcome as well to help set up for Friday. I can make a run on Thursday to the airport and with any luck either Bill or Ron or both can make a run on Friday. Phil knows the way and has rented a vehicle in the past and maybe he will again.

Midway is the airport to fly into unless you have no other option and need to fly into Ohare if it eliminates a long hold over or something for you getting here.

Anyone that is thinking about making it should really try as this may be the last fall bash held at my house for two reasons. One is that we think that the size may get bigger and may need to start moving off site to a larger gathering area such as a cmpground. The second is that we are thinking about moving the midwest bash up and down the Mississippi valley in order to facilitate more members being able to attend. This is something that we can discuss this year at the bash.

So let's start planning first by getting some responses as to who is coming for a fact and which of those members are flying in or driving and what day they are planning on coming in.

Those that plan on driving and can offer up space for others, please do.

Any off topic stuff will be deleted as it will be hard enough trying to coordinate without sifting through. Leave off topic to the other fall bash threads.


OK, we're off!

I just booked. I'll be in thursday evening at 4:30. Will make a costco run on the way from the airport for last minute stuff and do some shopping, so make me a list. Should arrive at Gregs around 8.

I'm not sure I can make it before late night on Friday, maybe 11pm or so? Depends on my vacation I have left. I'll either be in late evening Friday or best case around noon on Friday. I'll be driving and once I know my schedule, I'll offer up the five or so other seats in my Q van (with the crooked decal lol!) to any Brethren I'll be passing on the way by.

Give it a 50/50 chance I’ll make it. Just got the wife’s blessing. Now I just have to shuffle a few work things and I can get the odds up to 80/20. Wish me luck.

You need to bring Doorbusters! Hold a seat in the crooked party van. If I sit in the front the letters will be straight!

Me, Doorbusters and Mark are coming... looks like we'll be leaving the KC area at Dawn's crack on Friday morning and arriving early afternoon Friday. We currently have up to three places available in the van. Let me know if we're coming by any of you and you need a ride.

Right now, I'm planning on picking up Doorbusters around 6:30 AM Friday and Mark in St. Peters around 10 or 10:30 AM. If that schedule works for you, let me know ASAP.

Im leaving Thursday morning about 9 am. I have room in my truck if anybody else from Mid-Michigan wants to ride with me. I have a cab and 1/2 Ford p/u. I can squeeze in 3 riders. Please let me know if you need a ride. Either on the forum or via PM.

Weather looks to be great! Nice cool nights for a bonfire to sacrifice more Spam?

I'm sure that there will be sacrificial Spam regardless of the weather!

Keep in mind that Gregg is close enough to Chicago to guarantee that the weather forecast will change at lest once per day until the bash. :-D

Although Morris is quite a ways out, I'll stretch the Chicagoland definition (just a little) to say bring clothes for 60* to 90*.

60 degree nights can easily be followed by an 80degree day, but 60% humidity might make it toasty. Shorts, jeans, light jacket, somethingwater proof (besides a condom), should be in order

It's like camp, plan on everything

Works for me Jeff. When you come back through St. Peters, slow down and I'll jump.

bbqbull: If you have any room in your truck and happen to accidently "run across" any Caribou or Moose, toss em in the back for me buddy.

I'd love it if Poobah would make his famous boneless babyback sandwich that he posted here once! That sucker looked phenominal!

I'll probably do my ribs I do at comps and hopefully some of you farkers can try 'em and tell me what I might try differently.

How about man meat? You guys want any brats or other sausage? I can go by a local meat market that makes great sausages.

Jeff - I'm not going to the bash this year. Spending some quality time with my son this weekend and looking forward to it.

I will miss the cameraderie, the spam-opening ceremony, any shine that makes it, but not the manboobs and man-meat. :shock:

As an artery-clearing antidote, I was planning on bringing some salsa, (add your own heat this time) and grilling some summer squash. Some onions and soft corn tortillas and eggs would be nice if its not too late. Otherwise I can bring some.

Don't worry guys: That gay $hit just ain't so. Just stay away from rocking trailers. However, the lawn games can get pretty rough. Drunks and bonfires kinda stuff.

Educational demos can also be interesting. I might display the flatulence combustion excess body hair removal technique iffin my meds and alcohol react strongly enuf.

So far so good though. There have been no medical crises and no arrests of any kind.

Oh yeah... I roast about 15 lbs of coffee for party favors and for us to drink on Saturday and Sunday morning.

I'm picking The Lord Of The Ring up at O'Scare at about 1:15 - 1:30, so assuming traffic cooperates, we whould be bashing by about 3:00!

I also have some jap nuts left to bring. Will be stopping by Columbia to pick up some Spicewine goodies too. Do I need to be bringing anything else? I have a 42 cup coffee maker... is that needed?? Got soccer practice with my daughter then I'll be loading. Someone let me know.

Don't rule Sweet T and me out yet.......we've talked about driving up half way Friday night after work and staying in a motel, then finish the drive on Sat. morning. If there's a motel close, maybe stay there Sat. night and drive home Sunday.....it's not a definite, but a thought at this time....what's holding me back is this is the last weekend until the first of Nov. that doesn't have something planned, I may just take it easy at home.......

Jeff... your fine with what you are bringing. That's why i said that I overshopped. I kept seeing things that sounded good! As far as coffee, last year we used Greg's home pot and it seemed to be OK. I have a 60 cupper if we think we need bigger.

Kick... It would be great to meat you and T, but we'll all understand if you decide to stay home and relax!
