    The cutoff date for '08 Gathering entries is MAY 15!

    The sooner you get them in the better so we know how many to plan for.
    You won't find a better time with better people or better food!

    Remember, this event is for YOU

    I'm probably not supposed to fill this announcement thread with this stuff, but I wanted to note that your efforts are not lost on the silent majority.

    I know from smaller organizing events that this is a PITA.

    But the end result always makes up for it (see posts on 2007 pics to SMF gathering)

    I tried my damndest, but I can't make it. Hope to meat you all one day somewhere down the road.

    We're all on a few boards it seams, and I would like to meat all of you!!

    Your hard work is not lost on those of us who cannot make it.

    Thank you, Mike

    I hope to see as many there as can possibly make it. I know from planning last years event that things happen. Shoot the price of fuel alone is enough to turn some away.

    If you can't make it to this year's event, then at least plan on smoking something over the weekend with us. We'd love to see YOUR pictures too.

    For anyone who is still on the maybe fence.. Don't be afraid to meet new people. Last year's meeting with the group of axe murderers turned out great. Even the seminar on axe grinding went great [​IMG]

    If you can - C'mon out and relax for the weekend with us. No pressures, just good times!

    Right now we are going to take off Thurs sometime to put us down there to set up camp before dark. Dunno yet if we are going to take in other adventures just yet, will have the 2 dogs and love to camp so when we get settled in we usually stay put.

    Travis, Enjoy it. Good idea to fast ahead of time.

    PeculiarMike: I will actually in Tulsa TWICE in June but will not be passing through Mizzou on the Gathering Dates or I would stop by for it. Bummer.
