That sounds good to us.... But we'll likely have the kiddos in tow if it is Easter weekend. (Grandparents might be willing to take them)
I'll be towing a 5th Wheel from KC - but it appears they have 140 RV spots. I couldnt tell the difference between a Standard and Deluxe spot.

So far it looks like my wife and I and your family with the possibility
of Arlin driving down.

We've put a call into our family down there, and as long as they weren't coming up here - we were planning on attending.

I'm going to rename it the South KS/OK bash, if some other Texans don't show:twisted: hehehe

Is there a weekend that would get some more folks?

KS/OK is fine with me.......I just want to make the best of it.

I'm actually getting pretty frustrated with this whole thing.
I worked on locating a place last year a little further North and got
negative response from some down south so I thought it might
work out to have something in Central Texas.
2 major airports in either direction.
I have written PM's asking for ideas, I have sent out messages
for suggestions and only a couple of responses.
We do a better job with doing our local brethren lunches.

I have NO IDEA what else to do.

Sorry for venting ... it is just frustrating.

We are going to go down there and kick back and enjoy the weekend.

No problem on the venting. I can understand the frustration. Sounds like you are going to enjoy the weekend either way :wink: We'll know what ours is going to look like soon enough.

If it wasn't for my layoff last month, I'd be there. And this was the year I planned on making at least one bash. Hopefully I won't be job hunting for long. Hope those that do make it have a blast! Drink a couple for me.

I understand your frustration. I've been following the thread just out of curiosity, and no one has come out and said this, but I wonder if a lot of guys aren't interested since it's Easter weekend. For us, that's a time to spend with relatives, and if I even suggested going to a bash on that weekend I would be boiled and dyed bright colors :shock:

Just my $.02.

I'm not sutre if I'll be in Texas yet....Moving sometime in April, just don't have dates firm yet....otherwise I'd love to come ...
BTW I would have to agree with Ron_L on the Easter weekend thing,I think you may not be getting the response you'd like to see, because of Family obligations for lots of folks..just a thought.

Based off of PM's and opinions posted.
Easter Weekend is a bad weekend for a large percentage of us.
I have cancelled my reservations.

I must commend Andy "HoDeDo" as he was going to visit relatives and
drive an additional 3 hours and have his relatives spend some time
down there with us.
Andy.... save the gas and have a great Easter Weekend with kinfolk.

Anyone else want to take a stab at something ???

10-4 Over and OUT !!

Just for clarification of new members, FatDad quoted my "moderator merge request" while we where having fun in Texas Mega Bash thread back in January

But this thread appears on the surface to be an attack on FatDad. It is not. The more recent comments about FatDad's sister, was a veiled reference to an off line conversation in email that involved a picture that I cannot post here, that I now find out was just sent to me by FatDad, and was actually Quinn's sister.

Mark, I don't think you were pissed at me per se (or, maybe a little) but it had nothing to do with you planning an event.

My religious comments were meant to stir discussion, not controversy.

Like this one:

Hey Druids: You worship trees? I am burning your God to flavor my brisket!

HoDeDo
03-08-2007, 08:27 PM
Bill, Can I get an AMEN please?

I'll need to go to church, since I gave up eating fish on Friday for Beef Tenderloin.:|

Oh, WAIT! I'm not catholic, so I guess I just need to hug a tree before I burn it. :twisted:

HoDeDo
03-08-2007, 08:31 PM
Mark - It was a good try man. Jellystone had some good kid activities for Easter morning - so we would have had a blast either way. We put the offer out to Kim's cousin, so if she wants us to come on down - I'll still let ya know. Maybe we could have a couple cold ones at Lake Whitney!

Andy

I apologize if I had a negative impact on your meating.

I actually nearly made it to one of them Texas luncheons, a fly in/out thing. Jorge was trying to help me make it, but my SWA expired before I got her done.

When all is said and done, I hope you OK/KC/TX brothers do pull something off at some point. It should be fun.

But I also think you might be missing the point, or missing the perspective.

I have Q joints around. Good ones? Non Chains? Its a trek, not a leisurely drive.

You people in the South, they're like cockleburrs, always close and stuck to your ankles.

So we travel 600 miles to NY to eat meat for 3 days.

You farkers eat it daily.

Don;t misconceive a "bash" for missing out. I would trade 4 of my bashes for just the concept that we could meet as you have locally in the past.

HoDeDo
03-08-2007, 10:12 PM
Bill - You are right about that - we can pull together an impromtu lunch in KC area with 10-20 guys without much more than an email, and call or two. If we wanted to get really crazy... we could snag a handfull heading east from KS, end up in Columbia, and really put a hurtin on the lil town of Columbia.

Lunch in KC is great - if we get Aloha boy out, and get a few beers in him - he'll use gentle coaxing to get us in the kitchen. Lines like " Well since my Que is way better than this, I'd love to see the kooker you have in your kitchen. Maybe I could figure out why your food is so average!8-)

Ok, he'd never do that.... at least not until we have put up his Brethern banner and taken over 1/2 of thier joint :twisted: (Just kidding Jeff, you are usually very modest.):wink:

To me the whole point is to get together... Have yet to meet an a-hole brother. I mean part of the fun of going 12 hrs away for some "bash" time - is because you do it "just cuz" - we could have a mini bash here weekly, driving to tex, or ga, or Chi-town.... well thats just part of the fun, regardless of the que available in a 10 mile radius of my house (Rosedale BBQ, Okie Joes, Gates, Bryants, Jones BBQ, etc, etc....)
