Default *** Get Your Wild Game On! Northern Illinois

Made up of a couple of brethren. We haven't done anything fantastic yet, but are hoping to eventually. Anybody is welcome to tag along and hang out the whole event. We use my buddy Bob's homemade cooker/trailor. It is a very nice rig. It has running hot and cold water as well.

Haven't even thought about this year's schedule yet. We always do Shannon, IL and a few more have popped up in the area this year and I will post the ones that we will be trying to attend.

Ron is always in charge of coffee, so you know it is the best coffee available at the competition.

We have nothing fancy for sleeping quarters, we just throw out on the ground. So bring a bedroll, bag, tarp, cot, whatever you need for sleeping comfort.

Anybody wanting to tag along will get fed and be able to drink from the Cabo bottle, but will need to bring their own beer or soft drink choice. Everyone on the team has their own drink cooler.

A good time is promised as well as some good starting tips for a competitor. We may even be able to learn something from you as well. We are a mellow camp at night and not the loud party types. If we feel like being like that there is generally a nearby tent to hang out in. If you are looking for an all night party, we are not your team, but do stop by and say hi.

Ronelle may be able to add some things.

The coffee is always free, too! (Unless you whine and moan too much. Then it's $3.00 a cup. Still cheaper than *$'s

Yeah, but it's an on topic forum...

We love to have Brethren visit us, but be prepared to be put to work. Right, Pimp? Ciret? Harbormaster?
