BTW,

Masstoberfest takes flight rain or shine. I'm going to have a fairly large hunk-o-hawg in the back of my truck on Friday. It's getting cooked one way or the other. Just as insurance, who has portable awnings? I have a 10 X 10 portable and the gazebo on the porch. Unfortunately the gazebo got hammered when that wind storm came thru last week and the roof ripped at every point where it attached to the frame. So if you have a portable awning please consider bringing it. Just thinking ahead.

Is that an example of the shenanigans of which you speak? Cause I gotta tell ya, I'd give a year off Yeagers life for a picture of the look on his face when he realized she'd been listening in for the last hour. Babalu was laughing so hard he nearly peed himself at those shenanigans.

Oh, one other thing. Don't leave your camera lying around. Ask Colby why.

LOL!! Oh man... BOTH of those times were effin histerical. I thought Babalu was gonna puke he was laughing so hard over the camera thing.

And man, I dont think I've ever been as stone cold busted like that time with my phone. "hi Honey pookins, I'm ON THE ROAD, I'm be home shortly. Hopefully there wont be any traffic". (THINK I hang up the phone) "phew!!! Now i can have another beer! Meh, I'll just tell her there was an accidwnt or something"

.... Go to pick up my phone two minutes later... And hear my wife say... "I'M STILL HERE MORON. I have been listening to you for the last two minutes. How's the accident??? Cleared up yet?"

Buuuuuuuusted. Bwaaaw bwaaw bwaaaaaaaaaw

Good times. Good times.

I have one (10x10). If it survives this weekend's camping trip, it will be there.

Do you need anything else? Paper supplies? Is this a "pot luck"? Should I make something?

Paul.... just a thought... you might want to post another thread that is basically just the webcast annoucement telling folks that this disaster will be for everyone to view if they want.

Unless folks are specifically following this thread, they wouldn't know and I think you'll get a few folks that wouldn't mind watching this train wreck.

Me and my girlfriend will be there. I don't have an awning, but should folks bring camp chairs and the like? I have at least two.

Chairs are good. I have a bunch of plastic ones but probably not enough for everyone coming.

Will, that is great about the awning. I appreciate it. Even if it's nice and sunny it is still a good idea to have a few up. I believe Rick has one also, I'll put the arm on him, too.

And as far as what to bring, I'm just asking that if you are coming you bring a dish of something. Anything. Don't matter to me. Appetizer, desert, whatever. If you like it, bring it. I promise you, the hungry hoards there will be grateful and enjoy whatever is there on the communal table. I do know that for main course meat type stuff, I'm BBQing a whold hawg and both Yeager and Melana are bringing Brisket. I'll probably make up a batch of ABT's and Alice is planning on going in to the Haymarket on Sat morning so I assure you that she will try to balance out the lipid levels with a salad of some sort.

I'll get either Yeager or Joos on that.

Any rough idea of how many people will be there? We will likely be bringing a desert, but I want to make sure there's enough.

I'm bringing 2 full briskets that I am smoking this Sunday, so we will definitely have enough protein.

I will be broadcasting this, and will be using ptn's iphone. That way if I drop it in one of the brews it won't be mine.
