    Dutch, Monty, Ron, Joe - could this become a sticky so it stays around a bit???

    As the end of 2007 approaches it is time to think about putting together the 2008 2nd Annual SMF Gathering.
    The 2007 1st Annual Gathering was a resounding success, though lightly attended.
    We would like to see SMF member attendance increase and put some faces with those names, build new friendships, do some SERIOUS smokin', and help us eat all that fine food.
    Those of you who are gainfully employed (not all of us are) will soon begin scheduling your 2008 vacation time. I will post more information as soon as it becomes available so you can work this event into your plans.
    Generally, I think we will look at about the same time frame and location area -June and someplace south of Kansas City. I am beginning to explore possibilities.
    More as I get it! Stay tuned.

    If we all are to be happy with the location, then we will all have to be appointed Event Coordinator and hold our own little pow wows! I hope that the alternative will bring enough people together for 2008.

    Perhaps we should look into a regional appointment of coordinators for the different geographical areas.
