Title: Kegtoberfest 2014.... A Keg Owner Get Together!!! It's HERE!!
Post by: Cajunate on June 20, 2014, 09:26:49 AM
For years now we have been talking about having a Keg owners "Get Together" or a "Kegfest" so to say. In order to organize such an event it takes time(yeah I know.... Years?)and knowing how many would seriously attend. I'm thinking about the central sort of eastern part of the U.S. possibly Tennessee. Ideally I'd like to see this happen in the Fall of this year.

Please let me know the following things.
 
So, how many of you think you can commit to attending?
Driving?
Flying in?
Bringing Keg or not?
Motel room?
How many days could you get away for? Thinking about Thursday evening through Sunday about noonish and then departing.
Trying to get an idea of what type of place we would need.

It's quite possible some of our past active members might be interested in this so if you still stay in contact with them please let them know.

Alright, It's official!!!
We are booked for the first ever Broil King "Kegtoberfest" at Goose Pond Colony Resort in Scottsboro Alabama for Friday October 24 and Saturday Oct. 25 2014.
Actually I plan to be there October 23-26 and possibly a day earlier or later.

I tried to get them to hold the lodge rooms and cottages for about a week to give people time to make reservations but that was iffy at this point. That said I suggest if you know you are definitely coming that you make your reservations ASAP.

Call Kelly at 256-912-0592 and mention "Kegtoberfest" to make your reservations.

Lodge Rooms....... http://goosepond.org/facilities/lodge/  Single Lodge Room Nightly Rate $72

Cottages....... http://goosepond.org/facilities/cottages/ Cottage Rates March - Oct. Nightly Rate $200 per night

I've reserved the Pavilion are for That Friday and Saturday. It has water and electricity and usually grilling is done along the perimeter edge of the sheltered area. The Lodge consists of six separate rooms and if we as a group booked the whole lodge we could actually have our event in the parking area there. Not sure about running water right there except for in the rooms.

I plan to make a scout trip up there next week to make sure everything is still as I remember it and to discuss any other needs or issues.

If you missed it the link below is for the Goose Pond Colony.

Not many will be able to advise without a location.  It the chicken egg thing.  Pick a spot first or see who wants to go and then pick one more central too them.

Motels are a must or cabins at a campground.  Some wont come if they have to camp.  Others may want to bring a camper so having water and power hook ups would be a plus.  I'd like to see the the rooms onsite so people dont have to drive back to the hotel at night.

Some may fly in but then how do you bring your keg?  I'd have to drive as I'd need some grills.

Consider lodging that is family friendly.  More may come if they can make a family vacation out of it.

I thought we already had a beer sponsor!

Im in for sure.  I've vote for central part of the country though lie Missouri or Kentucky for obvious reason.

I like the idea of campground with cabins. Maybe Yanknrebel might have some ideas since he lives up that way.

Post by: Cajunate on June 20, 2014, 12:21:35 PM
Let's face it, a campground would be ideal especially if they had a pavillion where you could host a party. There may only be so many cabins available and thus motels will be the second option. The fact is that trying to pull something like this together in a short amount of time is difficult when other people probably have things booked a long time ago. It's quite possible that not everyone would be able to make it as what's good for one isn't for another.

Let me throw this out there by stating I'm NOT doing this somewhere convenient only to me!

Post by: K'man on June 20, 2014, 02:52:39 PM
I would consider coming from Ontario and probably would drive if in Tennessee otherwise I would likely fly.  I'm not into camping, so a hotel would work for me.  I can be pretty flexible with times.  If I drove I could bring a Keg but likely might prefer not to.  I have a trailer and an Outback do it's doable for me.  Not sure at this point if I'd be coming alone or not. 
Maybe I could pick up a Lientisserie!

I can look around and see whats available in this area.  Memphis itself isn't a good choice, but the surrounding areas are much more appealing.  Hypothetical time frame?

This is what I sent to Caj.  Guess there is no reason not to share it with everyone
http://www.memphisjellystone.com/index.php (http://www.memphisjellystone.com/index.php)
Cabins sleep 6 and there is a group of 7 cabins with a pavillion.  $130/night on weekends $200 deposit/cabin.
Plus there is full facillity RV spots and Tent spots too.  Pool and etc, fun stuff for the kids.  5 miles from Memphis, but out of the "city".  10 minutes to Graceland, maybe 20-25 to the Memphis Zoo.(Very nice Zoo). Beale Street and downtown memphis are about 15 minutes.  Kinda has what we need, I have no Idea about availability.  Thoughts?

I like that. The only issue I see is making sure we get all the cabins reserved just for us.

Yeah, dont know if we'd need all 7 that are around the pavillion, there are other cabins too.  Those few are just convinient to the pavillion.  Plus I'm sure if we are gonna rent 5 or 6 cabins, we can ask for favors and special consideration.  If we avoid holiday weekends, it may not be that big of a deal.  Maybe we can negotiate a group rate if there are enough of us.

Im thinking a campground with a bunch of cabins would be the ideal spot.  Something like what Corey linked.  It would be ideal for cooking as there will be power and water available.  If we go with a hotel type setting there might be issues cooking on site?

Wonder if we try to get together this summer yet or just plan one for next summer.  I'm thinking more people would come in the summer when  kids are out of school.



Title: Re: Seriously.... A Keg Get Together!!!
Post by: Steph on June 24, 2014, 06:35:00 AM
Yes, that would be ideal. That link I posted was actually a whole lodge to be rented so the cooking wouldn't have been an issue but it is too far east anyway, so it wouldn't work. But yes, we need a date and then the amount of people going before moving forward. Where is our Cajun when we need him? Cajunator, please report to the kegtogether thread. ;D

Title: Re: Seriously.... A Keg Get Together!!!
Post by: Cajunate on June 24, 2014, 10:01:11 AM
I'm here and I'm listening(or rather reading). Since I posed this question about a "Get Together" in 2011 I've felt like I let many down. I'm the kind of guy that likes to do things right and I appreciate that so many are interested in something like this. I want for us to have the best possible event we can have. The problem is it's sort of the chicken and the egg thing. You need to know where and when and I need to know how many and your needed accomodations. Campground vs cabins and or motel rooms. At least a shelter type facility is necessary to gather and grill, eat, drink and cut up.  ;D I'd like to be able to do this where we can grow it and make it an annual event somewhere where we can become familiar with the area and have other things to do. It's much easier pulling something like this off when you are familiar with the area. And at a time of year that is comfortable and enjoyable.
Please bare with me as I am still researching and as soon as I have something I will let you all know. I do hope we end up having something that you will go home and talk about to your friends and family. I need to talk with Rich too.


Title: Re: Seriously.... A Keg Get Together!!!
Post by: Vindii on June 24, 2014, 10:12:23 AM
At one point Rich mentioned possibly having it at OMC's warehouse.  I forget if that was in Georgia or Indiana or someplace else?

I think it would be hard to attempt it this year.  Unless we just throw it together and see how it goes and make it bigger and better next year.  I'd suspect we would only have about 20 or so if we tried it this year.  Just a guess though.


Title: Re: Seriously.... A Keg Get Together!!!
Post by: BBQRich on June 24, 2014, 01:36:10 PM
I've been batting some stuff back and forth with Caj in the background on this - the warehouse venue (Dickson, TN, or Huntington, IN) poses problems because overnights aren't a reality.

Some campground / resort ideas have been in play too.  I'm prepared to get behind this wherever we end up.  Should be fun.

Title: Re: Seriously.... A Keg Get Together!!!
Post by: Vindii on June 24, 2014, 02:19:44 PM
I say let not worry about getting it perfect.  Lets just get it done!  Once we do one there will be things to tweak for the next year.  Im thinking if we set it up like a BBQ comp we should be ok.  We need spots with shelter, water, and power. If its not a campground then we need to consider power sources, overnight stays, outdoor cooking, local health dept regs, etc.

Maybe even doing it near a KCBS contest might attract more people?  I'd do a contest on Friday/Saturday and stay for the weekend.

We should keep the conversation in this thread instead of PM's.  Gets everyone's opinion.  Kick around some ideas.


Title: Re:
Post by: TAURUS BBQ on June 24, 2014, 03:27:36 PM
If it is a private event no health regs required.. we are all camping and cooking for each other... unless we serve the public

My grandfather used to go into Canada every year on a fishing trip. At that time you had to stay in Canada for 72 hours to be able to bring liquor back.

One of the main reasons for the trip was to bring back a case of Canadian Club  ;D

One year, my uncle dropped the case taking it out of the car and all but one bottle broke. He wasn't happy  ;)

Selfishly - weekend of the 19th is out - tentatively booked into Talladega for the fall race.  Nothing productive to be done there.

Canadian Thanksgiving is on the weekend prior - in an effort to prove that I'm not a deadbeat son, I will be at my parents' farm.

Post by: Cajunate on July 07, 2014, 08:27:38 AM
Alright so here's what I've come up with yet nothing is definite yet. I haven't had a whole lot of luck with finding a place that I think would be right in my mind. I tried getting some help from the Memphis TN Chamber and they suggest hiring a professional in the area to help.

I will throw this out there even though I know many will think it's too far south but take my word for it that this is a beautiful place. Goose Pond Colony It's a municipally owned resort about a five minute drive out of the town of Scottsboro Alabama. It's a beautiful area that I've been to many times and in fact it's where my family and I spent a month when we had to evacuate from hurricane Katrina.

http://goosepond.org/

If you take the time to look closely at the web site you see all the amenities available. You play golf? You'd enjoy playing the courses there. I really think that at that time of the year when the leaves are changing and with the cool nights everyone would truly enjoy this place.  

I'm familiar with Scottsboro and Goose Pond and feel totally comfortable suggesting this as a great starter location for a start of what I think can be an annual event and even spur others to have such get together's elsewhere in the U.S., Canada and wherever else groups of Keg owners can get together and celebrate their pride in owning and cooking on steel Keg grills.

I have a couple of different ideas but I'd like to start the first event calling it the first ever "Kegtoberfest" if we can start with this first get together this October.

I had intended to drive up there last week but had several obstacles that prevented that and this week is out of the question. I might be able to get up there next week to do a scout trip to be positive it would work for us. Actually I know it would work. Out of curiosity last week I called to check on accommodations and they had only a couple of cottages and lodge room booked. There is a pavilion that is available. A bar and restaurant that I've actually cooked at while on evacuation for a evacuee get together where we had good 'ol Louisiana food(red beans & rice, gumbo, jambalaya and more). If you would need anything there are three supermarkets not ten minutes away or you can hit the Wal Mart or Lowe's for supplies.

If you want to do a lil fishing Lake Guntersville is known for hosting many bass fishing tournaments and you can even rent boats there at the marina.
I can't stress how strongly I feel about how great Goose Pond is for having our first ever get together.

Oh, btw if you want to camp they have a site for tent camping or if you have an RV they have a place for that.

My thoughts are for us to do this either the weekend of October 16-19 or the following weekend of Oct. 23-26.

I wish you all could see in my mind of how nice this could be if we can pull it off.  Lets hear some feedback. I know this might not be the ideal area to host this even but it's a place I'm familiar with and I truly feel this is an important factor in having a successful event.
Now of course time is something we need to take seriously as they can book up soon and even if they did there are several hotels nearby should we need more accommodations that they have available.

Looks like a nice place Caj.  Options for nicer cabins, looks like they have something along the lines of hotel rooms, and camping nearby.  Have you spoke with them about what we plan to do to make sure they are ok with us gathering outside and cooking, drinking, etc.

Might have to rent a pontoon boat and put a couple kegs on that!

I like it.   ;D ;D

Only downside for me is a need a day for driving each direction.  And with the kids in school Im not sure how early in the week we could leave.  I'll make it work though.

Vin, I did discuss what I have in mind with someone but I really want to nail down an exact date , drive up there and discuss more thoroughly and finalize plans. It is a lil over a seven hour drive for me so I hope no one thinks I'm trying to do this in my backyard. Heck Memphis is actually closer but we have to start somewhere.
And it really is a beautiful place. I love the evenings and early morning coffe outdoors there.
They have camping in the colony and motels down the road maybe like 10 inutes away.

That's a long ride for a scout run especially if you've been there already.  Unless your heading that way for something else?  Can't you get what you need over the phone?  The only thing I could think of is that some places might not like people grilling outdoors.  If there good with that we should be ok.

Thanks for putting some time into this.  Even if the turnout is small we will at least set the groundwork for the future.

Yep, flying is definitly an option. Huntsville airport is only 45 minutes away. We should have enough Kegs for cooking on.
Only in a real bind I could borrow a different brand of grill but I think it would be big enough.
Of course we want to keep it just a Keg event though.

I used the cooker above to cook chicken thighs when I went up there and cooked jambalaya and gumbo for about 700 triathlon participants.

I came across this picture from a few years ago.

25 gallons of chicken and andouille gumbo.

No, I think it would be best for everyone to make their own arrangements. I can't financially guarantee so much.
I hope we get more interested when the date is set. In case they do run out of rooms at Goose Pond I'll try and find the best deal as close to there as possible as well as quality accommodations.

Post by: Cajunate on July 09, 2014, 01:12:24 PM
Alright, It's official!!!
We are booked for the first ever Broil King "Kegtoberfest" at Goose Pond Colony Resort in Scottsboro Alabama for Friday October 24 and Saturday Oct. 25 2014.
Actually I plan to be there October 23-26 and possibly a day earlier or later.

I tried to get them to hold the lodge rooms and cottages for about a week to give people time to make reservations but that was iffy at this point. That said I suggest if you know you are definitely coming that you make your reservations ASAP.

Call Kelly at 256-912-0592 and mention "Kegtoberfest" to make your reservations.

Lodge Rooms....... http://goosepond.org/facilities/lodge/  Single Lodge Room Nightly Rate $72

Cottages....... http://goosepond.org/facilities/cottages/ Cottage Rates March - Oct. Nightly Rate $200 per night

I've reserved the Pavilion are for That Friday and Saturday. It has water and electricity and usually grilling is done along the perimeter edge of the sheltered area. The Lodge consists of six separate rooms and if we as a group booked the whole lodge we could actually have our event in the parking area there. Not sure about running water right there except for in the rooms.

I plan to make a scout trip up there next week to make sure everything is still as I remember it and to discuss any other needs or issues.

If you missed it the link below is for the Goose Pond Colony.

Well, I just recieved a phone call from Kelly at Goose Pond and she suggested the following.  

Instead of having the event at the pavilion, that we book the whole lodge area and rent a tent, tables and chairs and have our thing right beside the lodge. It would be closer to the cottages and being right by the lodge we would be in a more private area and we can grill to our hearts content. Just need to pass the cost of the rental stuff by Rich.
See, this is why I want to go up there next week and check on specifics and ideas like this.

Please let me know if you have or are going to be making your reservations in the next couple of days. I asked her to hold the whole lodge reserved as a block for the next week to see what happens next.

Vin, I was going to get with you on that. Since you are the official Broil King Keg competitor would you like to be in charge of a lil throwdown or something similar?

Doing a little research I found out that at these types of events held by other kamado grill brands they cook and give samples of foods cooked on their grill. I don't know if we can do that just yet. I know it's usually held at a dealers storefront or nearby and people pay to do so and they use new grills. Those grills are then sold as demo grills at a discounted price. It's more about an event to introduce potential buyers to the grill or to help new owners with what can be done on them. There are other factors that make that type of event almost cost prohibitive for us at this point. Maybe something like that can be done in the future.
Right now I'm trying to make this about fellow Keg owners getting together and enjoying each others company and cooking.

If anyone has ideas and suggestions please pm me.

Thanks all!!

If the lodge rooms or cottages get filled keep in mind that there are hotels nearby. By nearby I mean maybe a ten minute drive away.
When I go up there next week I will check out what is closest but keep in mind that the lodge rooms will go fast.

Cool!

I'm thinking seriously about maybe doing the tent, tables and chairs thing either beside the lodge or in the lodge parking lot. Last time I was there I saw it was somewhat shady and we could run extension cords for electricity from the lodge. That's one of the things I will look into when I go next week.

If my family comes we will get cottage and anyone is welcome to use the kitchen or anything else they need.  If I come alone I'll just grab a room.

I'll be bringing my trailer with all my comp stuff in it.  I have 2 broil king canopies we can set up along with a bunch of power cords and coolers/hotboxes.  Along with all the rest of the supplies (alum pans, cutting boards, etc.).

It would be nice to not have to tear down our set up Friday night.

I was just about to post the same thing. Yeah, that would be much easier. I think he said she will hold them for a week so let's get those last three rooms rented so we can have the whole parking lot.

I will check to see how much a nice tent with tables and chairs rented would cost. Would be better than renting the pavilion without having to worry about taking stuff back to rooms. If too cost prohibitive maybe Rich can bring a few canopies and along with Vindi's we would only need tables and chairs. Of course people can always bring folding chairs from home too. We are working here with -0- startup funding.

Maybe I should do like the guy that wanted to make a potato salad and get donations for over $30,000.00.  ;D I need to explore that!

I'm working on some giveaways for those attending.
If anyone has a connection with a business or person that sells BBQ related stuff maybe you could hit them up for donations. PM me if you know anyone willing to do soemthing like this. I hope to have some good stuff!

You can clearly see the parking lot, the dock out on water and a walking trail between the water and the lodge. If you back out you'll see the Goose Pond Plantation Golf Course clubhouse. Right across from there are the cottages with their docks on the water. Pretty cool huh?

...well it's not me.  I'd love to come but the cost of airfare plus accommodation is more than I want to spend.  Driving for two days or the best part of two days each way is a lot too so I will hang on the sidelines, smell the aromas if they drift this far North and wish all the best to everyone for the two day visit.  This is a great opportunity to promote the Keg so hope you folks make the best of it!  It will be interesting for all to reveal their true identities. :)

Come on Suzanne, you can make it. I can see you wheeling your Keg onto the airplane and buckling her in right next to you.  ;D
It might end up being just like Woodstock and you'd be sorry if you missed that right?
Besides, just consider it an early vacation for next year.
Beautiful weather, country where you see animals(I have seen deer tracks while playing golf on the beautiful courses), wonderful colors of the changing of the leaves, beautiful people both inside and out, great food and the smell of smoke wafting out of the top of all those Kegs chugging away. Come onnnnnnnn................!!!! There will be prizes too!!!!!

By Woodstock, I mean this...... People calling the police saying "that group of people up there there smoking something over there". The 911 operator,, "Yeah, they're smoking pork!" . Lol.........

Maybe next year we'll call the event "Kegstock" Loud music, partying, drinking and smoking!

Anyone want to do some research and send them invites? Maybe they have email addresses in their profiles.

Not a clear picture but check out the temps for the next few days in Scottsboro. I'll be headed up that way tomorrow morning.
Going to a be a beautiful couple of days while I'm there.
BTW, Goose Pond is booked solid so I can't stay there on this trip.

Hmmm...... I may reconsider that idea. Cut the lawn out front and vacuumed my truck and before I could finsh it started raining. Get inside and the sky has opened up. Coming down in buckets with lots of wind, lightning and thunder. I see there's an 80% chance of rain Friday and I hate to put the Keg through that.

I'll try to find out when I get up there. Got several things to take care of there.
I don't know if any of you have a cocktail, beer or glas of wine but in Alabama you have to buy hard liquor from the ABC stores. You might plan to bring your beverage of choice. Now they do sell Yuengling there and the Sam's in Huntsville has a fantastic price on cases. If I have the time I'll look into what a Keg would cost. Oh, Fat Tire too!

I thought about that but I think the cottages are more spread out so I don't know if they have the outdoor space. Besides I think at least two of the cottages are rented to non Kegtoberfest people. See, this is why I'm going to check on things.
Another thing is IF there should be some rain(hopefully not)the lodge parking lot would makes for a less sloppy time.

Whats the keg count at?  Is Rich having any kegs sent down?  I was planning to bring my trailer and 4 kegs but I can save a fair amount in fuel if I don't bring the trailer.  I could bring 2 kegs then or maybe all four with 2 in the truck but that won't leave much room for anything else.

Got two or three stops to make before I head back home. One to pick something up for either the start of a cold or an allergy attack.
I was hopping to get on the road before then rain started but too late for that.

One of my stops is to check onut a meat market. People tell me they have great meats so I'm going to check to see what they have and if they'll work with us on some good steaks for Kegtoberfest.

Okay, so I got back home yesterday evening and I consider the trip a success. I took care of some arrangements that not being done in person would have left me wondering about the outcome. Found out that there was an extra lodge room available. BtW, if someone booked it or switched rooms please let me know. I was better able to see where to set things up. Took care of what might seem like minor things but really aren't. I do need to get back with some people next week to almost finalize something.
Overall I do think the trip helped  to better organize this event.
Heck, I even peaked some people's interest in the Broil King Keg. Working on getting someone up there to even sells Kegs. Lol....
I'm pretty sure I can get that same person to contribute some rubs and or sauces to Kegtoberfest.

Oh, if anyone wants to come to Ketoberfest and there are no rooms or cottages available at Goose Pond, there is a really nice Quality Inn about ten minutes away from GP.  

While there I stopped at the Foodland supermarket and picked up some things I can't find around my area.

I even bought a couple of(grown local to the area)cantelopes that are huge. They are every bit as big as a one gallon water jug.

This morning I took a drive accross the 24 mile long Lake Ponchartrain Causeway to pick up one of the prizes to be given away at "Kegtoberfest 2014". I got home to find another one of the prizes was delivered to my house.

First up is a dozen SOS stainless steel Oyster Shells. http://sosoystershells.com/

(http://i1183.photobucket.com/albums/x475/Cajunate/Cajunate133/DSC04316-1.jpg)

These are verry versatle!
 I might have a lil demo there to show what you can do with these. The three loose ones you see in the picture are some of mine that my kids gave me. Heck, thinking about it now, I'm overdue for some delicious char broiled oysters. I need to do some soon!

Second is something I came accross and I liked it so much I ordered one for myself. While placing the order I sent the owner a message and asked if he would be so kind as to donate one to be used as a prize at our Kegtoberfest and he quickly agreed to donate one and even showed interest in coming to Kegtoberfest himself if we have a good showing of attendees.

The "Kick Ash Basket"  http://www.kickashbasket.com/

(http://i1183.photobucket.com/albums/x475/Cajunate/Cajunate133/DSC04320.jpg)

Very cool accessory!

I have something else that should come in soon and I'm working on some other things as well.

It depends on how we make out with storms in the Gulf. Crawfish is available peeled and frozen in 1 lb packages. Prices vary so I wn't know that until we get closer to October. Oysters and shrimp will depend on if any storms get close to Louisiana and screw up the habitat.

I would love to get a bunch of these to bring but the running cash register in my mind for this get together is adding up. Lol....

Nah, no need to get her after me. I am looking forward to going, a little nervous I must admit. I imagine that is the case with the rest of you, meeting people in person that you chat with on the interwebs isn't something that is normally done. We hide behind our computer screens saying snarky stuff trying to be relatively intelligent and witty and then you get to meet them and find out it's all a big sham! LOL! Other than the impending ruining of my Keg Forum rep, it ought to be a blast!!

I am a salesman when you really break it down, so talking to people is what I do, I forsee no issues there. Nervous might not be the right word, anxious is a better fit I think.

We're gonna have a lot of fun, especially with Dan, Corey, Bob and Alex all showing up too! I think Rich might even be tolerable too ;)

Well, that's just $hitty! I understand that it takes money from everyone, time, travel, etc...So I can't beat'em up over it. To be honest, if it were not so close, I wouldn't be coming. Doesn't mean that I wouldn't WANT to come, it would just be very difficult. Rich coming all the way from the Great White North is impressive I must admit.

Steph, that is music to my ears.  Lost my SOG Trident Tanto 3.5" last year and have downgraded to a stainless kershaw 2" spring assist.  Much more of a 'pocket' knife, but the Trident Tanto was ideal.  May have to replace it.

Shoot.  Now I'm just thinking of ways to spend money.

Of course the most obvious..... Kegs!

So far I'm still in.  Just hoping that work duties don't get in the way.

I found this here in a local beer store, good stuff.  Not far from Goose Colony.  1 hour
The name fits the occasion!!!   :D :D

On the way for me, might stop in to check them out.  Hey, maybe they would be willing to bring some kegs.

Caj, have you ever fished at Goose Pond?

I have but mostly on the piers in the boat storage marina area. A friend had a boat docked over there. Caught lots of white perch and sun prech as well as bass. Only caught bass behind the lodge but should have white perch there too. We'll have to find out what artificial they're biting on and they seel monnows at a Chevron station down  the road towards Scottsboro.

Not sure if I posted this but I decide to not bring the trailer to save some fuel money.  I'll only have 2 kegs then.  Not sure if I'll be able to fit the canopies either.  If theirs a pavilion we can use I'll maybe just plan to use that instead of canopies if it should rain.

So whats the people count at.  I'm thinking it at 8 confirmed forum members?

I will say this. I wish there was more being done to promote better attendance but they aren't completely ignoring this. This is something new for them and maybe they aren't exactly sure what we're doing and how it will turn out. They don't know me and I wish I could make them understand that personally I want this to be somewhat of a seed for future events like this. I am trying to do this as well as can be done considering the light attendance we may end up having. I have and continue to try to plan for something that when you all leave and get home you will be glad you came to Kegtoberfest and will talk about it and hopefully garner interest to do it all over again in bigger and better fashion.
I hate having to crawl before walking but we have to start somewhere.

I will be the first to want better attendance but I want everyone that plans to come to NOT get disappointed if there is a large turnout.

I only wish it could be a longer weekend for us all!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and make a bold statement!

 I may be speaking prematurely but what if you had a chance to win a brand new Broil King Keg? Would you come to Kegtoberfest 2014 then? What about a cash prize to offset traveling expenses? Again, I am saying this prematurely but what if.......?


Alright, It's official!!!
We are booked for the first ever Broil King "Kegtoberfest" at Goose Pond Colony Resort in Scottsboro Alabama for Friday October 24 and Saturday Oct. 25 2014.
Actually I plan to be there October 23-26 and possibly a day earlier or later.

I tried to get them to hold the lodge rooms and cottages for about a week to give people time to make reservations but that was iffy at this point. That said I suggest if you know you are definitely coming that you make your reservations ASAP.

Call Kelly at 256-912-0592 and mention "Kegtoberfest" to make your reservations.

Lodge Rooms....... http://goosepond.org/facilities/lodge/  Single Lodge Room Nightly Rate $72

Cottages....... http://goosepond.org/facilities/cottages/ Cottage Rates March - Oct. Nightly Rate $200 per night

I've reserved the Pavilion are for That Friday and Saturday. It has water and electricity and usually grilling is done along the perimeter edge of the sheltered area. The Lodge consists of six separate rooms and if we as a group booked the whole lodge we could actually have our event in the parking area there. Not sure about running water right there except for in the rooms.

I plan to make a scout trip up there next week to make sure everything is still as I remember it and to discuss any other needs or issues.

If you missed it the link below is for the Goose Pond Colony.

Right now at home just outside of New Orleans it's already 86 degrees with a high expected of 92 which will probably be higher and a low of 78 with a 50% chance of rain.
In Scottsboro right now it's 77 degrees still a 50% chance of rain but a low of 72.
I want some cooler less humid weather NOW!!!!

Nah, no need to get her after me. I am looking forward to going, a little nervous I must admit. I imagine that is the case with the rest of you, meeting people in person that you chat with on the interwebs isn't something that is normally done. We hide behind our computer screens saying snarky stuff trying to be relatively intelligent and witty and then you get to meet them and find out it's all a big sham! LOL! Other than the impending ruining of my Keg Forum rep, it ought to be a blast!!

I am a fat bald short man who is married to a hot chick who is with me for my money :o (all $152.47 that's in the bank!)

Today I got another delivery from an awesome guy. Kurt of Ash Dragon donated one of his firepit charcoal dividers. I can honestly say that anyone attending Kegtoberfest will have a chance to win this or one of the other fantastic items. Of course I will exclude myself from these giveaways so as to show no impropriety but I am totally excited to be the one handing something as nice as this to one of the attendees.

(http://i1183.photobucket.com/albums/x475/Cajunate/Cajunate159/DSC04400.jpg)

I didn't want to put it in my Keg to try it as I was afraid it wouldn't come out.  ;) ;) ;) ;D

I think I'll have to order one for myself when I'm working again.

Man!

Oh, and for any of you that will NOT be attending Kegtoberfest 2014 please don't hesitate to order yourself and Ash Dragon http://www.ashdragon.com/products/  if you are the slightest bit interested in being able to cook indirectly on one half saide of your Keg. Well, made will last forever i'm sure.

I personally think that the weekend will fly by and we'll wish it were longer but I want you all to have gotten more than a full belly and a hangover ;D from Kegtoberfest.

Steph, I wish it was a pink keg but then everyone would know who was getting that prize.
Hey, if I win the lottery tonight I will have one specially painted for you and it will come with abottle of Pepto Bismol for RG for when he looks at it. Lol.......
Hey doesn't Mary Kay give pink cars away. Maybe one day that will be the Throwdown prize. Lol........

Anyone have thoughts one a throwdown of some sorts?  I wanted to do one but at least for me its really only one day long.  I'll be traveling Friday and Sunday.  Not sure we all want to have to cook something topic specific instead of maybe some things we really want to cook for the group.

Just want to get everyone thoughts.


Title: Re: Kegtoberfest 2014.... A Keg Owner Get Together!!!
Post by: Yanknrebel on August 13, 2014, 11:08:21 AM
Not everyone is bringing Kegs.  I think we just split up the menu and of course anyone is welcome to cook their specialties.  Thats prolly gonna reduce the amount of extra stuff to tote along.  JMHO. A "live" throwdown is a great idea, though.  Actually getting to taste everyone creations is tempting.  We do a "mystery" ancillary at the MBN invitational every year where the basic inredient(s) are provided, you get about 3 hours to come up with and prepare an entry.  Really is kinda fun.

Alrighty now! I hope we have good attendance because we have some great prizes/giveaways. This may sound silly but I THINK we have another nice product to giveaway. I'll only say that this will be an enLIGHTENING prize. ;D Maybe! The reply was not very exact but if we get it it will be a nice addition to someone's grilling gear.

Hey folks... well at noon today, I gave my two weeks resignation notice at work. After 14 years (almost to the day), I am finished here and starting with a new company on September 2nd.  Although this new position will work mainly from a home office, there is a lot of product learning required at the beginning. They want me onsite at head office (2 hours away) 4 days a week for the first 3 months.

Unfortunately that now means I will not be able to make Kegtoberfest, which is very upsetting!

Anyway, I wish nothing but good success on the first attempt. Nathan thanks for all of your hard work! I have been looking forward to something like this for a long time!  Enjoy everyone, I think it will be epic!

Call and ask for Kelly  http://goosepond.org/facilities/lodge/
There MIGHT be a cottage left. If not and there are no lodge rooms you might have to stay about 10 minutes away in town. Ask kelly what would be the best place other that Goose Pond.

The Quality Inn I stayed in a few weeks ago wasn't bad at all.

After reaching out to a buddy on another forum he offered a couple of ideas. One of them that I think will make for a little fun is a homemade BBQ sauce competition. I think that would be a bit of fun and the winner gets bragging rights and a prize.
So if you're coming to Kegtoberfest start thinking or tinkering in the kitchen for your best homemade sauce.

I'd wait until a week or two before the event to make your entry though. This should be fun!

Not a bad idea. I guess we would need outside judges otherwise everyone will be voting for themselves like in the throwdowns. ;D

I'd be up for a grill-off on the Friday night for dinner.  I've cooked a steak or two in my day.  And I like to eat, so.......

Thoughts?

Also, how great is Caj?  He needs more than a t-shirt for this.  Long sleeve T maybe?

How about a regular tee and a long sleeve? Yeah, that ought to do it.  ;D For real though, he has put a lot of time and effort into this and thanks just doesn't seem like enough. With all he's done, it would have been nice to have a bigger turnout but this is just a starting point.

Alright, I have been exchanging emails with one of our newest members here on the forum. Now I want to say that what I'm about to write here comes unsolicited from me and I want to send out a huge thanks to focuspuller!
He wrote me telling me that he wanted to send a few necessities we will be needing for Kegtoberfest. I actaully tried to discourage him but he insisted on doing something because he wants to do something and be a part of our Keg owning celebration and hopes to be able to attend but might be able to do so.

Just about ten minutes ago I hear a knock on my door and it's FedEx. They just delivered the first of four boxes of stuff coming from a generous and thoughtful gentleman. Stuff we will need for our first ever organized Kegtoberfest 2014. I can tell you that it warms my heart to know a new member can want to see us have a successful event and contribute necessary items that I had actually planned to buy as we get closer to the event.

Here's a picture of what came today.

(http://i1183.photobucket.com/albums/x475/Cajunate/Cajunate168/DSC04508.jpg)

Thank you focuspuller for your contribution and I do hope you are able to join us in October!!!

See what Caj has on his list.

Hope to make it to "Kegtoberfest" and and meet all of you.

I'd say agood mix. Oldies, Country(good stuff), Cowboy Mouth, some Jimmy Buffet.........
Wait! Maybe we can get Jimmy Buffet to come to Kegtoberfest! He bring Kenny Chesney.


Title: Re: Kegtoberfest 2014.... A Keg Owner Get Together!!!
Post by: Regular Guy on August 21, 2014, 03:37:46 PM
Country music makes me vomit as does cRap. Given the choice between Kenny Chesney or Jay Z I guess I'd have to choose Kenny. That's like waterboard torture for me. I know people in bands, nobody famous but they can play. It's a shame I can't get them to come out and jam for us :( If they did, it'd be Van Halen, Scorpions, Def Leppard, Zeppelin, that kinda stuff. No country or Jimmy Buffet on their set list.

I'm still curious as to the eats. I am going to make some Brunswick Stew and some Brisket Chili to bring and will smoke something on site, Steph wants to do a brisket, I may do that but then again I may do a butt depending on what else y'all are cooking. Caj, you're doing Gumbo or Jambalaya still? I also plan on making some sauce to bring so y'all will be getting a jar of that from me.

Yeah, I will make separate thread so we can be on one page with food. I do SERIOUSLY want to have a steak dinner/meat and greet on Friday evening with a couple of sides but not too complicated. Salad, baked potato, one MAYBE two veggies.
I would like to make an authenis Louisiana gumbo and or jambalaya.

I'd appreciate it if when I post the thread we keep on topic so as to not get too long and confused as to what's really happening. Working on POSSIBLY getting some beer donated. My mind doesn't stop!
Rich can vouch for that. Lol.....

I'm already thinking about the NEXT event. I wish BK would just go ahead and hire me!
Just exchanged emails about a place in Baton Rouge about looking into selling the BK Keg! Whoohooooooo....................!!!!!!!!

About the closest thing I like to Rap is old school rap, Run DMC maybe. Before it got all crazy about killing and drugs. As a matter of fact, you can thank Run DMC for bringing Aerosmith back to relevance in the 80s.

It's a grate removal tool. Great for removing hot grates even if they have food on them. Some lucky Kegtoberfest 2014 attendee will love winning this tool.

And for anyone not attending I urge you to check out the website and order one or two for yourself! Things like these make fantastic gifts for you grilling friends and relatives!

Is that an awesomely generous gesture or what?

Alright, the Saints game is over(They won BTW!)and imbibing cold alcoholic beverages has lead me to a wild and crazy idea(I told you all, my mind doesn't stop!)or Kegtoberfest. Ready? Here goes!!
Since the reason I chose the name "Kegtoberfest 2014" is somewhat of  a celebration of our Keg get together and of course the famous Octoberfests. I thought it would be fun to maybe dress the part of those in Octoberfestland. Yes, of course I'm not sure what the women wear but I do recall as a teenager I worked at one of the fanct restaurants in New Orleans the Sazerac. In the Fall/ Winter - Christmastime they would decorate the restaurant elaborately and we had to wear costumes. The one that stood out most was the Alpine village decorations and the lederhosen we wore as uniforms. Lol..... I can't think of a more appropiate form of dress/costumes for Kegtoberfest. Afterall the Keg is an idea from the beer keg and it is in October and we are having a Kegtoberfest right?
What do you guys think? Sound like a fun idea? I'm, already laughing at my own self!!!!!!

The costumes in the link below will NOT be allowed! Especially by RG! Lol...........

So we'll celebrate "OKTOBERFEST" and "HALLOWEEN"

It was enough that I dressed up as Sandra Dee for a fifties theme party lunch....

And shorts is not my style...

Whew! I had what I consider to be a mini catastrophe yesterday. Somehow the computer automatically did a download/upgrade and I lost a bunch of stuff including my Kegtoberfest 2014 folder with all contacts of contributors and ideas. Having tried yesterday several time to retrieve it I was still unable to find any of it. I don't know if it's the cooking or what but while making 2 gallons of fresh lemon curd for my wife's women's organization for their tea tommorrow I had an idea that I wanted to try. I'm no computer genius but this morning I was able to retrieve all of my data. Woo...hoooooo.......
Now I can back to a couple of ideas I'm working on.

Outstanding job Caj. I haven't been to involved on the forums as of late, but still use the ole bubba keg on a regular basis and will certainly attend this great event. I live close to the location of the kegtoberfest up on the mountain and get down to the river where this is located frequently. Reminds me of my neighbors from Ft. Payne's song.

Depending on if we need to be close to a full kitchen we might want to set up kegs in front of one of the cabins?  Having close access to running water and a stove may be needed.  Not sure whats available in the lodge.

I'm not nervous as in wringing hands nervous but moreso in the sense that I hope for those that do attend that I've at least met your expectations of what I want this event to be. Of course being the first of it's kind for the Keg I'd like for it to be BETTER than what I have in my mind. Does that make sense? Lol......

I have no expectations so it can't help but be good. I am sure nobody is going to leave thinking it wasn't a good time. You've done yeoman's work putting this together so you've got nothing to be nervous about. I don't think anybody else here would've done half the job you have! I know I couldn't have done better.

No time to wast for the weary. Just got home from a meeting and I'm whooped! Today I sent out still yet more emails and got some more contributions of stuff for Kegtoberfest.
My wife thinks the pain in my hand/thumb is from typing. Gotta go for an injection bright and early Monday morning. But I don't think the hunt and peck method of typing can cause this pain. At least not in the base of my thumb.

I was just tested for ULNAR Nerve damage.
I have one in a compressed state in the right elbow.  Test also showed some carpal tunnel issues.

Both nerves can cause numbness or pain in the fingers and hand.

Find a hand orthopedic doctor.  If recommended get an EMG test to see if it is nerve damage.  The test is annoying but not painful.

Doing to try to get all the seasonings chopped here. I need to go pick up stuff like tie wraps and other small stuff we'll need.

How much do you want to spend?

I'd like more andouille than boudin.  My wife and kids wont eat the boudin due to the texture.  They cant get past the different texture vs pork sausage.  Maybe 5lbs of andouille and 5-10 links of boudin?  Not sure how much 5lb is?

Anything else you can think of that will travel well Im open too.  Some great stuff down by you.

It'shere finally!
There was shaking and loud noise as the day turned and it was as if the world knew this day finally came. It felt like I would imagine it feels like when the space shuttle would re-enter the atmoshere. You didn't realize it but the world stopped and only us that were here at Kegtoberfest knew what was happening. And so Kegtoberfest 2014 begins with a beautiful morning. Angels are singing!

It begins! The plans are in motion and they can't be reversed! Great company was had yesterday afternoon as we trickled in and gradually there were nine of us here. More to arrive later todasy. A few cold beers and talk of the bonfire became action and so it was.   

More to come after I have some coffee and get day one of Kegttoberfest rolling.

I hope there will be another in the future that I will be able to attend.
So that being said I will be praying for safe travel for all and that you all have a great time.
When it comes time to hoist a few, remember me as I will be thinking of you all after Friday night football when I pour myself a cocktail.

WISH I WAS THERE

Steph is on camera duty, so yes, there will be pics at some point. I can tell you that tonight we all ate like kings and queens. Rich and his accomplice Taylor made some nice NY strips and ABTs, Larry (Focuspuller) made the best scallops ever, Bamabob and Mrs. Bamabob made some stuffed peppadews and twice baked taters that were killer. Billsfan, Mrs. Bills and Bills Jr. had salad duty, Caj made some seafood gumbo that was incredible, there was kegged rattlesnake, boudin, just a kegged food paradise! For dessert Focuspuller made some fireball whisky pumpkin pies. All in all, it was just ridiculous! And that was just day one. ;D

We're having a great time here in Scottsboro, Alabama.  Thanks Caj for making this finally happen.  Great people, great food, great drinks, good good times being had by all.

As I entered the event this morning still groggy, I was greeted by the incredible smells of Regular Guy's pork shoulder and Vindii's brisket.
This is going to be another fantastic day.

Because he is feeding us the absolute best scallops ever!  I think we all had a half dozen of these monsters, they were so good!
Kegged perfectly with an incredible seasoning Larry brought that formed an incredible crust.

That's it...I can't handle it...I'm on my way. I'll just run it by my wife real quick and then hit the road.   ;D

Looks like an amazing experience! Steph...Could you add a few pictures... with the stories included. For example: So then Bama said to Vindii, "That's what she said!"...We laughed until it hurt! Or...RG was pulling his pork and a squirrel came out of nowhere... Then we Kegged it! Or...Cajunate rolled out a huge cake and Skins jumped out with aged beef in each hand! I'm sure you have a fun story or two by now.  ;)

Thank you in advance,

Well, it's around 11:00 PM here, what a day.  I think I've eaten a weeks worth of food in one day.  No, that is not an exaggeration.  We've had it all, I've tried it all.  Damn it was good. 
But the best part was the incredible people I've met and the friends I've made.  The memories will last a lifetime.

As Mrs. Bama and I sit here on the deck of the cabin listening to the occasional bass jump in the lake and a pine cone fall from a tree as the squirrels scurry about, we're reflecting on the good times we've had this weekend and the fine people we've met.  Thanks Nate for all the hard work you did to make this happen, and thanks OMC for all the work & effort BBQ Rich & Taylor did this weekend.

Me and the other half of Team RG made home! Just nuked some of Vindii's pizza and now the recovery of the food coma begins! We had an absolute blast! For those that did not come due to distance or not being to take time off, I understand completely. For those that were on the fence about coming, you missed one hell of an event! You know how we sit on here and look at each other's cooks and wonder what it tastes like? This is the equivalent of looking at your monitor and pulling out a bowl of Caj's gumbo or Vindii's brisket or Bills' hotdog (not THAT one!).

It was incredible! As Bama said, Rich and Taylor did a great job and you already know what the Crazy Cajun did :P Nate was the instigator, got the ball rolling and along with Rich and Taylor did the first Kegtoberfest proud!

I am glad to have met all of y'all finally and Steph and I talked about y'all all the way home, LOL! Still smiling from the "Fest" high ;)

I don't know the official name for these but I couldn't stop eating them.  Oysters cooked on the keg in Caj's special vessels with his special sauce on them for dipping his special bread in.

Yanknrebel showed up Saturday after the Jack with a load of BBQ from the competition.  What a feast.

some of the gifts provided by OMC.  What a great time we all had, oh and the Naked Pig was the unofficial beer of the first ever Kegtoberfest.  After drinking one everyone looked at the bottle for the alcohol content, "is this one of those high alcohol beers?"  LOL  may explain how the chairs got broke   :D :D

Three words for y'all. Uh, uh, uh! What a time! Fun to the max, stuffed to the max and tired to the max but it was so worth it. I actually would have liked to stay a couple of more days. Such a beautiful place. I don't think the spot could have been any better. I know everybody is dying for pics and we have a good many but just hang on to your tots and we'll get them up. It would have been nice to have had some video but now that I think about it, it was probably for the best. ;D  I wish everybody could have been there but I know it's hard. Maybe next year, eh?
 It's funny, I already felt like I knew some of these guys and getting to meet them in person, it was like I have known them forever. Good times and good people!

Couldn't believe how thoughtful everyone was.  Rich & I had our birthdays shortly before and after the fest, a special keg cake was presented.  What a great group.

One of the desserts we enjoyed was Focuspuller's (Larry), special pumpkin pie.  Made with a secret Cinnamon Whiskey.   ;)  There was some Apple Pie Moonshine available to wash it down.  Thanks Larry!!

Stopped for the night...Still have another 8 hours drive tomorrow.

Will post pictures, recipes and where to buy when I settle in back home.

This was some weekend...best time I've had in years...and the fun part was meeting so many people I didn't know but knew them only here on the forum and yet still felt like we knew each other for years and even recognized each other as we drove up to the Lodge and we greeted each other.

Alright! Finally have a minute to really relax and get some rest. Still here at Goose Pond. Rich, Taylor, Darren and myself finsihed packing the BK van, pickingup the last of the small trash and the site was back to just to like it was before we got here. Lol...... I'm glad I stayed to get a lil rest this evening. I plan to get on the road somewhat early tomorrow depending on how bad the fog is.

Rich and Taylor left abouit 12:30 pm and I was finally able to jump into the shower right before 4:00pm. Got my trailer loaded with everything along with my new Keg. ;D Yes, I was given a Keg for my works to organize the Kegtoberfest! I will say it again that I didn't do this with any expectations of anything in return but I do love and appreciate the Keg.

I also want to thank all of you who contributed to the Grill Grates surprise I recieved from those who attended Kegtoberfest 2014. Thank you all !!!!!!

I have pictures that I'll post when I get home and get them uploaded to the computer.

Darren just left to go home a few minutes ago. He stayed here to watch the Saints/Packers game and we endulged in some more of the delicious foods that were left. Mmmmm.........

Thanks again to all who came outto share there weekend with us and iam happy to have finally met every one of you! I had a great weekend.

BTW, I've had at least a half doxen people already tell me they are looking forward to the next get together. Lol......

Wow!  What a great time.  It was great to finally meet you all.  Many of the people on this forum I consider friends but having never met them you just dont know.  I can say now I have a bunch of new friends.  And some of the best people I've met!

And then there was food!  I left Sunday before breakfast and didn't stop until 2:00 to eat lunch because I was so full from Saturday night.  You would not believe how much food we made.  It was awesome! 

Rich and Taylor from Broil King really stepped it up.  The had tents, flags, keg accessories, kegs, literature, steaks, along with other stuff.  Great to see them drive all that way and really make it into a top notch factory backed event.  Thanks for the gifts and support guys!

Huge thanks to Nathan for organizing this.  To put together the first ever event, mostly alone, is a big undertaking.  You did great!  Thanks again!  Glad to see Broil King give you a nice thank you.

Here's the pic I got.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda done that Steph.  We had lunch at the Shed, quite a unique place.  Relaxing now at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi.  15th floor overlooking the Gulf.  LIFE IS GOOD.   ;D

Rich and Taylor from Broil King really stepped it up.  The had tents, flags, keg accessories, kegs, literature, steaks, along with other stuff.  Great to see them drive all that way and really make it into a top notch factory backed event.  Thanks for the gifts and support guys!

Huge thanks to Nathan for organizing this.  To put together the first ever event, mostly alone, is a big undertaking.  You did great!  Thanks again!  Glad to see Broil King give you a nice thank you

Just got home about 15 minutes ago! Just got to go drop off the tables and chairs and drop of the trailer then I can unpack my truck.  ;D
I was NOT supposed to come home with as much as I put in there last night and this morning. Oh, it's also pretty hot here compared to Scottsboro.
I'll try to post some pictures this evening.

Well the trip is over, I'm back in CT. Got in today after a two day drive at 5PM.

Did a little over 2,100 miles round trip for Kegtoberfest.
And it was a "SMILE EVERY MILE"
Worth every bit of the travel time.
My daughter came in from Oregon. And my nephew, shortest distance to the Fest, from Chattanooga, TN.

I'll be posting more later this week once my head is down from the clouds.

Taylor and I made it back to Canada in one piece. 3052 km, about 87,000 calories and an overnight stop in Louisville. FYI - I had a Caesar salad for dinner. Uncertain what lettuce actually tasted like before that, I'm pleased to report it was delicious.

Spent nearly two hours parked on I-65 south of Louisville. I took RG's advice and tried to outsmart my GPS leading to a delightful detour onto some of Kentucky's narrowest roads.

In any case, really glad we got the chance to meet everyone and I will be updating images and such tomorrow.

I can't thank Caj enough for all of the amazing work he did to pull this off. Incredible stuff.

Made a quick stop at Lockhart's BBQS in Detroit for a late lunch. Always worth it. Sausage and cheese plate plus a cup (not bowl) of child and some cornbread. Killer stuff!

Talk about your Keg exposure at Kegtoberfest 2014. The lady that made the birthday cake for Rich and Bob replied to a Thank You message I sent her.
Cakes done by Betty
"You are so welcome. Im glad everyone enjoyed it. It was nice meeting you when I dropped it off.  It was funny yesterday I was heading into work and seen a truck that had one of those grills strapped to it. Thank you again!"

That's funny!!! I wonder who it was that she saw.
We also had several people that were walking on the walking path behind the lodge and Kegtoberfest area to inquire about the Keg.

Well, I'm feeling much better after 11 hours of sleep. Not aching as much today. Last night even my finger tips were hurting. Lol....... That was from jamming them on bolts that I was removing from the trailer jack I put on the trailer tongue to be able to unhitch it from my truck.

I just cut the cheese for my wife! No, not what you're thinking! She has a meeting tonight and I just cut into cubes some Tillamook(Oregon made)Vintage over two year aged Wite Cheddar. Pretty good and would be better with a good red wine.

That sucks! I'm glad you made it home to. That would have made for a sour note to Kegtoberfest 2014!

I just ordered an new cover for the back of my truck. The other ripped up in I 75 on the way there. I went to the dentist yesterday to get them to glue the crown back on that fell out Sat night. Not enough tooth left. Off Monday for a root canal and then a post and new crown. The d@mn tooth will cost more than the truck cover.  :-\

Shoot! That sucks Dan. That's life though isn't it? There's always bad to counter the good. In the end you just hope that there's way more good than bad.

It's just little crap. I am working hard not to get upset about the little stuff. I'm not always successful but I'm trying.

I consider it a win that I wasn't stuck in Kentucky for a couple days while the dealer had to fix it!  They want $800 to put the pump in and that with a discount from  friend I have that works there.  May have been more someplace else.  I'm getting the pump for $315 and pulling the tank this weekend.

Drain it to nearly empty first if you can.  sometimes a smack to the bottom of the tank in the are of the pump will get them working for a bit.

Ya.  I'm hoping I can hit it a few time to make it run to get it to my buddys shop.  Otherwise its getting towed with a chain.  Damn tank is almost full.

Alright! I went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror to see if I look crazy and I can't tell if I look any crazier than I did six months ago. You know, before I took on the challenge of organizing Kegtoberfest 2014. Lol.....
And since everyone has nothing but good stuff to say about this past weekend's Kegtoberfest event. I can think of no better time than the present to consider organizing for next year's(dare I say it?) "Kegtoberfest 2015"!!! Lol..........

What say you Kegsters? Am I crazy? You all up to it?
No time like the present and it's best to grill while the grates are hot!
Awaiting a return call from Goose Pond. ;D ;D

I'll start preparing the "Libation Station"  It will be bigger than the last one.  I'll take suggestions for items to add.  If our Keggers from north of the US border are coming I will add some type of Canadian Whiskey. πŸ˜†

I think we should have a bar setup where we have barstools and room for a bartender behind it. We can call that area the BAR-bque Pit. Lol....

She was set to come.  Could not take the boys out of school and my so-in-laws off work schedule did not coincide with the date.

Now after seeing what a good time her sister, cousin and I had she is planning way ahead.

No problem with the Bar Tendering...she worked as one when in College.

So plan for the BAR-bque Pit!

Look at the bright side. When you're old and...well old it will be a great story for the Saturday night bingo games..

I am looking at the bright side. The new cover and one less tooth weighing to down will improve the gas mileage of my Tundra  ;D
