Oklahoma Bash
 
1 Attachment(s)
Who all in the great state of Oklahoma, or those that live close enough to visit, would be interested in startig a OK Bash? We have a decent amount of members spread throughout our great state. Not to mention our greatest contribution, Cowgirl!

Hotch 10-28-2020 10:16 AM

As with most I'm interested, depending on date and location.
My calendar can get quite busy! :mrgreen:

Hotch 10-28-2020 10:19 AM

Any areas around Lake Eufaula with RV parking/camping and a pavilion to cook at? :mrgreen:

Honestly never been to Eufaula myself, I just looked at it from a proximity standpoint. There is a state park there however.

frognot 10-28-2020 12:23 PM

Hope y'all make this happen. Would love to add it my Bash list (done 3 states but have 47 to go).

One of the suckiest things about 2020 was having attended zero bashes which just ain't right!

4ever3 10-28-2020 02:47 PM

Set the date far enough out and we’re in!

Why did this bash thread get moved from Qtalk when the other bash threads stay there?

Not sure I think Hotch may have moved it. This would be the more appropriate place for it but not much exposure

LYU370 10-28-2020 04:53 PM

If you plan one they will come. Unless it's Dennis that is planning one for SC, then for some reason no one wants to come. :noidea:

But I'm a definite maybe.

Makes no sense to move it to me...

Have you ever driven up Rt 69 pulling a 5W? :rant: :mrgreen:

That would be conveniently straight up the road for me too. Depends on when and where, I could be in.

Only 2 states for us, only 14.5 hours from home and 4 hours from family in TX. Definitely a possibility for a road trip! Need to keep up with Charles and try to beat Andy!

Robert 10-29-2020 09:25 AM

We need to pick a date and location. Also we must remain aware of how sketchy the weather is. May is usually good temperature wise, but also a bad month for planning due to graduations. June can be good as well.

The thread in QTalk was the Picture posting for the 2020 Fall Texas Bash.
I did not move it. I simply suggested it would be more appropriate to create a new thread in the "Brethren Bash" forum dedicated to an Oklahoma Bash.

If we keep posting on the OK Bash thread it will stay up top when most look at the "Today's Posts" on the Quick Links drop down menu. That's how we have done it for the past 4-5 years.

Once date and location for the Texas Bash are selected I would let Ron_L and or Phil know that I'll be posting an "Invite" post on the QTalk Thread about 60 days before the Bash. As not to post against the QTalk rules without approval.

As QTalk is all about:
"*ON TOPIC ONLY* QUALITY ON TOPIC discussion of Backyard BBQ, grilling, equipment and outdoor cookin' . ** Other cooking techniques are welcomed for when your cookin' in the kitchen. Post your hints, tips, tricks & techniques, success, failures, but stay on topic and watch for that hijacking."

okiesmokie78 10-29-2020 01:45 PM

Seems like we have a lot of folks in the Tulsa area and quite a bit in the OKC area, with a handfull of us stragglers here and there. What would be a good central location everyone would be willing to travel to? I know for me, If Im going to Tulsa and making a full day out of it, I better have a place to lay my head for the night, lol!

Could even start as a Fall bash as long as we dont have any crazy weather like we did this past week! :shocked:

I agree great idea. But first let's try to shoot for a Spring Bash. I think we are going to have to get some of the Tulsa area folks to help scout out and secure a location unless someone owns some acreage that would like to host.


Robert

okiej 11-01-2020 07:39 PM

I'd sure come if date is one I can make.

Happy Hapgood 11-02-2020 12:05 AM

I could make that Bash! May bring LuzziAnn if there is a hotel nearby where she could plug in her hot rollers. :grin: Once y'all decide on a location and date we'll look into it.

okiesmokie78 11-04-2020 12:31 PM

Gonna bump this a little! I don't know if its Election fear or Covid related but we sure aren't getting any traction on this thing.

Any luck with the BBQ Brethren map?

Looked at it and seen that our biggest concentration of folks is in Tulsa and OKC area. That being said Eufala would be fairly close to both, and the outliers like myself would just have to trek a little farther. Problem is that we've had more out of staters say that theyd be interested, than in state folks.

Hotch 11-04-2020 02:49 PM

If you have some that want to attend, go ahead and create a signup sheet so you know who will be going, maybe going or cancels.
I put the link in my signature line so it is easy to hit it!
(I have one for Texas. I can set one up for Ok if you like)
Pick a date and location.
Then post an Invite about 60 days out in the QTalk.
You can then work the post it the QTalk forum.
I've pm'd the ones on the BBQ Brethren map around the DFW area in years past to see if they were interested in attending.
Let me know if I can help. :mrgreen:

okiesmokie78 11-04-2020 03:48 PM

Thanks Hotch! Appreciate the help and insight!

Bill-Chicago 11-04-2020 05:03 PM

Hope Fatback Joe can make it so he can put up a video to "I'm Coming Home" on his Tik Tok page

What's the problem? Sounds like people want to come out. I think Dennis has tried to get a SC bash going but has only had s few folks show up. I think the NM folks are about the same. STL had a good amount show up but then haven't had one since. The Ohio bash was rather surprising, whole bunch of people showed up for the first one.

I think when the Chicago bash started, there were very few people, heck we only get around 15 people every year and it's been going on for years. But it's a bunch of fun.

Fatback Joe 11-05-2020 01:16 PM

Only if it is clothing optional.........well, with a mask, of course.

Arlin_MacRae 11-05-2020 01:39 PM

We're there! A warm March might be good if we get one, and April-May are always iffy because of the twisters.
Sounds good!

Not saying its a bad thing that others want to come, just wish more Okies would respond. Being an OK bash and all! lol

okiej 11-06-2020 06:00 PM

I plan to be there! As much as I can without knowing when, where, or what else is happening in the world at the time:-D:-D:-D

cowboyupbbq 11-16-2020 10:41 PM

There is a member and good friend here that has not been active in awhile. He and this site taught me to BBQ. He now lives in Tulsa. I can give him a call to see if he can scout locations in SW OK. if you want.

Yeah Lake Murray is nice! Was afraid it would be too far south for the Tulsans however. I have NOT been but heard from a lot of people who have that its good. Just always forget about it being there when I think of places to go for dinner! lol

frognot 11-21-2020 05:30 AM

Any bash that can bring Arlin out of hibernation is off to a good start!

Met him a couple of time at restaurant get-togethers when it was taking us Texas farkers years to get a bash organized.
