Let me see if I can find an approximate area. OBR doesn't usually give a location since they don't want people to self deploy. But I know LA is a huge area.

Woo Hoo! Thanks for volunteering! I think once you register at the link and they confirm, they'll send you the exact location. But please don't post the exact location.

Also as an FYI, if someone else wants to volunteer and come along with you, wife, hubby, significant other, random friend... They will need to register as well or they will be turned away.

Thanks to anyone that can help.

I was told that it's NEAR Dodger Stadium. What near means is open to interpretation.

I didn't take any pics.

It was really fun though. BBQ folks are great - you can show up, not really know anybody, and have a great time 'cause everyone's so cool. Beautiful day, lotsa eats & people having a good time.

It was an event for first responders that featured a BBQ contest between 3 LAPD teams and 3 LAFD teams and there were local BBQ notables (Kevin Bludso, the Slab BBQ guy, Andy S. - can't remember what team he's from but he def. knows what's up) mentoring the teams. There was also a large feed but I didn't see much of that 'cause I was helping out one of the LAFD teams who was shorthanded. The meats were pork tenderloin, ribeyes, and baby backs. The guy I was working with didn't do too well on scores but we had a great time. There was awesome eats rolling off of grills and smokers for the teams to sample throughout the day.

The traveling OBR guys and the locals were all killer and I'll definitely be making it to whatever events/deployments they have any time I can.

I imagine there'd be some pix on FB, but I'm not on there so it's just a guess.

I'd encourage any SoCal farkers to get registered with OBR - it's a great organization, the people are really cool and they're definitely doing important things.
