I was just wondering when are we going to make it happen? Who’s going? What in the world are we going to do this time.

It’d really be fun if we cooked some sort of meat this time... it’s a place to start anyway.

hahaha! yep, that'd be great! :beer:
From what I have heard leaked, "they" have a good idea where, just working out the confirmation. then I think they will advise the "Gathering Planning Commission", then it will be announced.

Our location has been set pending confirmation by our operations and sales manager.

He will be making the trip out there and checking on reservation dates.

Once this is complete we can proceed with a timeline.

Since I'll be traveling to St. Louis every month for the next 7 years, I don't have an excuse not to go! Would be a great opportunity!

wonder if you are ready to let the cat out of the bag yet and give us at least an idea of city/state? I have a cross country trip with the trailer tentatively planned for May but might be able to make things work.

Alternatively, is there a chance you might be doing something later in the may/june time frame that might work better for my trip? Either way, my route takes me right thru St Louis....might need to stop by and finally meet the crew.
