Default Great to meet the Brethren at Banquet

After a very long and difficult Board meeting I walked into the bar at the Clarion, only to be greeted by so many friends from the Brethren, whom I had never met before. During the BOD meeting, I wondered about the BOD and the job. Then I began to meet the members of the Brethren. You all are not only supportive, but great to meet and become someone I can call my friend. Thank you very much. It was truly my pleasure to meet each of you.

Yours in BBQ

Merl, Thank you for all you do by serving on the BOD. Thank you to all the Brethren Brothers that attended the meetings also.. I was unable to attend but I would love to shake each and everybodys hands for attending. From serving on a few boards, I know what a frustrating and thank less job it turns into it seems at times. I know some folks had to travel a very long ways to attend.

Mike

As you know I am only one. But there are many on the board who see the vision, and not the "old ways". I hope the elections will further our vision.
Thank you Arlie.

Ditto for me, Merl. You are a class guy and cooker friendly. Keep up the good work.

Scotty - I enjoyed picking your brain on the hows/wheres to get heat in rubs even. And after we wore out security....we toasted you at about 2:30am in Chris Early's room -- He found a couple of your lab test bags of Jack Links he siad you had shared several contests ago - so we busted them open and chowed down. Gotta love that!!!

My brain is still trying to absorb the events of this weekend. what a great time! I, too, started meeting Brethren from about the moment I walked in to Paddy O'Quigleys. I had the pleasure of chatting with many of the Brethren's KC Chapter (is that right?) and really felt welcomed by everyone. (JeffinKC, MoKan, HoDeDo, Merl...too many to list) Thanks!

ALSO, the five of us who flew out from New England had decided not to get our own table...so we were scattered about the banquet. (It was my pleasure to invade the Rocky Mountain BBQ tables and they made me feel quite at home immediately) We weren't too sure if this would work out but, I have to say, I am glad we did that. We ALL got to meet new people and exchange ideas and info about our respective parts of the country. It worked out FAR better than we had hoped and now we have the opportunity to keep in touch and maintain these new BBQ friendships until we can meet up with them again somewhere down the long BBQ road.

I am already looking forward to our first roadtrip to the Royal this year when I can introduce y'all to my man and my lunchmates.

If anyone makes it out to New England this year, please look us up! I will happily pay you back for your genuine hospitality!


lunchlady

p.s.
Hey 512 ... Chris and Shannon?...can I get the plans for that margarita maker? Thanks so much for having us~!
good times... good times
