    I am not sure if we can make it. Will depend on a couple things.
  3. Phyllis and I would love to attend.
  4. Doug, it looks like about 3 couples from Lake City for now, possibly more as it gets closer.

    Guys there is plenty of room for RV or tent camping, a huge pavilion with restroom facilities, and a full kitchen.

    Room for the smokers under the roof too, so rain or shine the event will go on.

    Jeremy, just go ahead and plan on it and everything will work out.

    It will probably be just me coming for the day but I'll bring a tent just in case there are to many adult beverages consumed :biggrin:

    The issue is it falls right around our wedding anniversary and not sure if she is making plans and we are right in the middle of banquet season at that time.

    I'll mark it down. Just not sure yet on if we will be there. Wife and I, plus two small dogs.
  14. Hope to see you there Flash
  15. Getting close now, only 4 weeks away.

    I will have dinner prepared for those arriving on Friday evening, so arrive with an appetite.

    I will be posting directions to the event next week.

    Again, there are acres of area for camping, whether it be tent or RV, and if motel is your preference the are several within 3 miles.
  16. Doug if you will, please add Brian with total of two , and Darrell, also two. Both will arrive Friday.

    Updated the attendees list with Brian and Darrell. If anyone is coming that is not on the list please let me know, and what day youll be arriving and i'll add you to the list. 

    Also if you want to cook something Saturday and/or Sunday feel free...i figured it'll just be a solid day of food being prepped, smoked and served so no point in "planning meals". Also if you want to attend/cook and do not have a smoker or the room to bring a smoker your welcome to use smoker space on anyone's who will be there. Ron and I will both have plenty of room on our smokers for additional foods.

    If anyone wants to bring Beanbag Toss, Horseshoes, Ladder ball, or any other entertainment/games feel free!

    Can't Wait!
  18. Doug,

    I already have all three of those games here.

    Also, I have breakfast for Saturday covered, will just need a little help with prep.

    I also have extra smokers that will be available besides the big one that will be going all day.

    I have plenty of firewood for our bonfire so no need for anyone to bring any.

    I'm so looking forward to it.

    It looks like I should be good to show up on Saturday and hang out for the day. It will be just me this time. If anything gets in the way I'll be sure to let you guys know.
