State of Michgian Barbecue Association 1st Meeting

(copied from e-mail I received)

Good Evening All,

I am sorry for the delay in getting this out, but we have arranged for our first meeting. It is scheduled for January 27th at 3:00pm at the offices of WBCT/WBFX in Grand Rapids. Thanks to Rich Berry for allowing us the use of his meeting room. I do apologize for those on the east side of the state, we will reciprocate!! I will also send out an agenda as soon as I complete it, I wanted to get this info out now so people can make plans. Please let me know if you will be able to attend. Address is below. Also please pass this on to anyone who may be interested. I will try and hit the major web boards by tomorrow (hopefully)!!

Thanks again for the interest.

WBCT-FM & WBFX-FM
77 Monroe Center, Suite 1000
Grand Rapids, Michigan 49503

Regards,

Mike

It was an informational post, wasn't expecting responses. But I can see where someone from Ohio couldn't figure that out.

Hey Puff, it appears that Mr. Svelt didn't figure that out.

I believe there is one in Silver Lake as well. I think there is one other, but I am not certain where it is. They had one two years running at Cabelas in Dundee, but I believe they have put the kaibosh on that one.

For those who are interested in the meeting notes, please PM me with your email address and I will forward them to you, that way we won't have to bore the rest of the folk here, especially the one's from Ohio.

It was decided at the meeting that the name of the orgainzation will be the Great Lakes BBQ Association.
