Looking forward to seeing you again this year Joe.  I was thinking more of the core folks that recruit the rest of us for the Red Wing meet.  We need to support our group in all endeavors.

Hey all, Amber and I have just learned that Travis' wife Crystal will be turning 30 the weekend following the meet. We would like to surprise her with a cake probably Saturday night since we will be among good friends. Would anyone have a problem with it?

None at all! 
Brandon, remember that Courtney will likely be making a few runs back to the house that weekend (we're 25-30 minutes away).  If you want to make the arrangements, we can keep the cake at the house so it stays a surprise.

Well as luck would have it I'm not going to be able to be there Saturday now... We'll still show up Thursday evening and be there Friday, but we'll have to leave Friday night. I'm helping sponsor an event Saturday raising money for the Wounded Warriors Project, so at least I have a good excuse...

If anyone's needing a camping spot feel free to fight over ours after we leave. It's reserved through Saturday night.

It does look like a good group I'll need the weekend, by then.  Hopefully I won't be driving up from KC and it will be my last weekend as an Iowan.

I ordered the brisket today just like last time, it will be smoked on Thursday, we'll heat it over fire on Saturday.  Time to order a trophy.

Thank you, everyone, for participating.  I'm excited.

    Dan, I own a big turkey roaster, AKA a giant crock pot.   Should we consider putting the brisket in something like that in the morning, then it will be ready to go when the time comes?   Personally I'm hoping for some beach area next to the campground so I don't have to take the boat out at lunch.

Mike - we can do that if there's anyone or a group that doesn't want a little char on the meat.  My personal preference is to get it hot over fire and put a little char on it but I'm only one of many I bought three whole briskets last year that was somewhere around 26-28 lbs.  I have no objection to the roaster, especially if there are some who don't want a bit of "crust" ..

     I will toss it in the "Bus" and we could figure it out as we go.   Maybe char it then put in warmer?  I know better than to criticize a chef, just trying to help out the cause.   Probably use the same warmer for breakfast on Saturday morning anyway since folks may not all be up and ready at the same time.   Brandon, Tim, and I have a breakfast meet on 4/19 so hopefully all the breakfast plans will be laid out.   Anyone got a fair headcount? 40ish?   Teenagers count as two?

So far I think planning for 40 sounds about right.  We'll lose Jesse and Kurtis on Saturday, but may have some day-trippers on Saturday.

Finally have some time to work on a t-shirt graphic
The first year, I liked the quality of the print using solid colors
Second year, I used gradients and the color printing wasn't quite the same quality
This year, back to solid colors.  Throw some opinions my way I need the I'll do something to ID the club / Glastron/Carlson
