Initial Smoke Stock Offering!

The initial date for Smoke Stock 2005 is the weekend of June 4th (Saturday). I assume a Friday arrival and Sunday depart might be needed for some! Hotel arrangements will be made as necessary.

We will hamer out the finite details (menu, drinks, cost) over the next few weeks, but, Woodrow and I will need an initial head-count!

So, jump in and say YES if you want to come...no one is obligated to stay the whole time...if you can only make it for the day then so be it!

Let's hear from you!!

Two questions?

1. Where? sorry must have missed this last I saw Bill was tryiing to pull us up somewhere north of Canada (not that that's a bad thing :-s

2. Any chance of pushing this till after June? I'd dearly love to help you guys have fun but June's tough for me for some business reasons.

Cheers.

No good for me, I'll be up in Canada on a fishing trip. I thought anything before September was bad for Wood-have-lots-of-cash-to-make.

I got good news................NO I DIDN'T SAVE ALOT ON MY INSURANCE! LOL But I did a mapquest from my house to the Hampton Inn in Wickliffe, Oh and it's only 382 miles! I thought Ohio was much further. Greg or Woody, how far is that Hampton in from Greggie Poo's house?

There is a Clarion in Wickliffe as well which is right off I-90 West...or East and is literally a straight shot to my house and is 4 minuets away...on a bad day 6 minuets!

Fatz, if you make the drive, you can stay the night at my house on both nights!

No one else is allowed!!

He must be giving you PigPowder if you are letting him stay. Man that is a long drive for Fatz, Virginia would be closer for him!

Damn Fatz, that sounds like a plan to me! With all of us working together someone is liable to win! Sounds like a plan to me!

Fatz...don't mess with the initial groundwork! It's going to be hard to get people to comitt to a weekend! So, I am going to start a new thread which will ask people to give an initial yes to the Smoke Stock Weekend already in motion!

Btw, should I post on the TVWB and TXBBQ Rub sites?

Greg you gotta look at Fatz point of view on this one and I see what he's talking about. I'm not saying to change it or anything but look at where he's coming from. He is going to have to drive twice, maybe three times further than most of us. I think what he's trying to do is make it at a halfway point for everyone. I don't know the specifics but I am guessing he's got close to a 1,000 mile drive ahead of him. Just my thoughts, please don't take them the wrong way. There is no way we're going to find a location that's close to everyone, but we could try to all get together (maybe on two different occassions if necessarry) to make it a little more convenient for everyone. I dunno, I'll go wherever but if I was coming from La. to Oh. I would have to really persuade myself to drive that far to meet a bunch of Schmo's!

I hear ya Larry! Two seperate times might be a good idea! Let's face it...there will be no ideal time or place...I agree with that...so now what?

We can either keep that date in June or start looking for a concensus time of year and then concensus place! Whatcha think!?

I suggest to start with a poll (I am setting myself up on that one) and go from there.

Well you could do that Fatz but I think the point of the whole thing is for all of us to be able to agree to get together at a mutually agreed upon location and as conveniently as possible for all involved. As long as it doesn't take over 8 hours to get to where ever it is I am in, anything more than that pushing it! If it's in Cleveland no problem with me, for once in my life I was thinking about others feelings!

I will agree with Fatz on this...this could start to get away from us really quickly...any date or time is going to be inconvenient for any number of us for any number of reasons. Inevitably, a hard line must be set in regards to place and date and for thoes who can make it, GREAT and for thoes that can't...well, that's the trade off. The other side is if we choose another date and place, other folks might not be available to go, right?

Let's be honest...ideally everyone on this BB would be able to attend and not have any conflict in schedule or location, but, that is never going to be the case! And there will always be other Smoke Stocks at other times at different locations!

So, June 4th in Cleveland, OH is how it going to be! Let's roll out from here and go forward with the planning!! Time is a wasteing!!

To be clear...not just because it's convenient for me!!
