OK, John, Darrell and I are planning to drive up on Friday to the AR. We can only stay the day of the Invitational event. John has plans for Sat. and I have to work. (ain't looking forward to opening on Sat. at 7 am)

We know JMinion is cooking with Dr. BBQ, and I see that Buzz (2Fat) is entered. Anyone else cooking that I missed? I want to make sure I get a chance to see everyone on Friday I can, even if it's while your are setting up for the open event, and you aren't cooking in the Invitational.

Anyone else visiting Friday?

Anyone going Sat.?

Now be nice! You know it was a good thing to be prepared! Who knew the weather was going to change to 7 hours of rain and the temps drop into the 60's.......I guess I shoulda mixed it with my coffee.....BUT I couldn't get the damn thermos off the ground where I could pour some! :)

I say go to to orlando - Keep the family happy. You're gonna need that good will next year when you're competing at the royal.

Phil, there will be other AR's to go to, but your kids will be their current age only once. Orlando is an awsome place to take the family. Your family has been very supportive of all your Q trips lately, so you owe them this. Your bros will understand. You'll have a great time too.

I think I understand your thinking here, we are your brothers, "brothers in smoke", and you want to be with your brothers, But, without the support of your family, there probably wouldn't be any "brothers in smoke" to begin with. They've shared you with us many a time via the internet or by phone, or by bash.

You take the family on vacation.....there's always next year for the AR.
Maybe 4 or 5 "brothers in smoke" banners will be flying next year at the AR, you just never know.......

Have a good time in Orlando! Take pictures, your laptop and your cell phone.

Gotta give the family that opportunity!

We'll all be cooking at the AR next year and that will be the one you don't want to miss!!!!

Um, has anyone taken the well being of the children into consideration?

At such fragile times in their educational development, do you really think staying out of school at a crucial time when the kids are prepping for state exams (re: school funding) is a good idea?

Phil, the President wants to leave no child behind, so why would you do that to your own children?

Orlando will always be there. Please, for the sake of your children, don't throw their future away because you want to go to Florida.

I think the choice is clear.

Keep the kids in school.

And since your not busy, go to the Royale.

I checked the schedule and it doesn't look like we can get in the gates as general public until 11:00. There is a pancake breakfast thoug before hand in the governers building form 7 to 9am.

Do we want to meet up with anyone else that is going from this direction and caravan or eat breakfast on the way? Are there any St. Louis area brothers going? JT are you going? We probably have room for one in Kicks ride. Promise I won't let him drive! (He already asked me to drive as he doesn't like to on long road trips.)

If we don't hear anyhting I am guessing on leaving Columbia Around 8:00?????? Let me know !!!

Phil, I hope you opted for the Orlando trip. The weather forecast doesn't look promising and it would be a long trip to KC just to get rained on. Chance of rain starting at midnight (thurs night/fri moring) thru the morning hours Saturday, the balance of saturday cloudy, cool and windy. :(

Buzz called this evening, he's all set up @ 215.

Any other semi locals making the pilgrimage?

Planning on being there when the gates open at 11:00a tomorrow! Hope to see as many Brethren as possible.

Best of Luck to All.

Not that we wouldn't love to have you in Missouri, but I think you made a wise decision. I will and do expect a lot of pictures from the Jack.
I put new batteries in my camera this morning, so I'm ready to share this weekend's experience. From the weather report, it sounds like it's going to be a wet and cold one. I just hope my old knees hold out!

Good news on the weather front, supposed to be 75 today and the chance of rain is falling rapidly. Slight chance of scattered showers. Cool and windy tomorrow. Sounds like its gonna be a great day!

That's funny. On the serious side, my prayers will be with your brother Jt. My brother had the surgery last year and is doing great. They say there are two types of men when it comes to prostate cancer, those who've had it and those who will get it.
