CU will be chained to the big "D" both days that weekend supporting some crap in the warehouse. I am feeling comfortable enough with the AG process to do a brew on the road soon though.

Dammit! Now Troy and Rachael will be coming and I can't make it!

I mentioned to the wife and she said the owner of her place of employment is expecting her to attend a "firefighters competition". They build hydraulic generators and apparently there is some big event and it's pretty much mandatory that the company has some big faces there. My wife is a big face I guess.

I think it sounds like a ton of fun, except the owner is going to be there. He's a decent enough guy if you like arrogant, controlling, jerks!

So personally, I wont' mind going to the firefighters competition, but my wife can't stand hanging out with this old fossil. He has a thing for her too, just like all the other ladies. You would have thought at 70 he'd be done with all of that.

Enough rambling. I just need to support the wife on this one. The company needs her to be there, and we just have to try and have a good time even if the owner is going to be there too. Hopefully I will be able to see the electric "jaws of life" that the company provides power for. (It's called the Liberator).

Yeah, whatever. Hey, she's pretty cool; send her so you can get that work done.

I'll be a newcomer to your party... I had a Predators brew day at my house in May and it was really fun!

I'll bring something good to eat...I'm not sure what yet...
HotBreakHotel, you have a PM.
Best things are some kinda meat to put on the grill, but even munchies or a salad that is beer compatible work. I'll make another pot of chili from tomatoes and peppers out of the hop garden.

Actually, Z was the lead instigator on that, as usual.

OK, one bedroom down, one to go. There's an actual bedroom in the basement, too. Bob will enjoy it, and earlier is just fine. I tell people 9AM, just to get them here by 11AM.

So put me down, Think I may bring a tent and just stay there this year. We got home really late last year and the wives were not so impressed.
Gosh, priority over a pig roast. I'll throw in a breakfast for the overnighters.

Sucks you and the wife won't be able to make it, but there will be other gatherings. Sounds like her boss could use a sharp nut slap.

I beg to differ; in this case an open hand slap would be less preferable to a direct cock punch. It may be merely a matter of technique, but I think you can't go wrong with a good cock punch.

Hey All-

I'm interested in attending and maybe brewing. I don't have many posts under my belt but I have brewed about 40 gallons this summer (paltry I know compared to some of you--but I just started AG on April 30) and I follow the board quite regularly. I'd love to attend and put some faces with names and learn more about brewing.

Thanks,
Dtrain

Tell you what- I'm NOT brewing. It's just too far and my car is too small to haul my stuff. But, if you want, you could bring your stuff and I could "help" you brew? I drink, though, so I don't know how helpful I'll be...............

Hey, Henry Hill- could you PM me the directions again? I sort of remember where you live but not the exact turn off.
