I plan to come unless something unexpected comes up.  Jeff, you need any more cedar paneling?   I can get a bunch of 4' in the Ford Edge. My youngest son Ian, mentioned he might want to come.

I've not found a home yet for what I have here. I did our laundry area, and still have quite a bit left. :)

Sounds like you need to add an addition, or another cabin out back in the other corner of the yard.  ;D

I went to click "report post to a moderator", but I realized the culprit is one!

Maybe Marcel could donate his riding buddy as a door prize.

Jeff-I'm coming. Let me know what I can bring or if there's anything I can do once I get there. I have many relatives less than 5 minutes from you. Look's like you're less than 80 miles from me, and I've driven a lot farther than that for a good meal.

Certainly :)

Looking forward to it Marty. No need to bring anything unless you feel the urge. Some people bring a door prize, some bring a dish to pass, but its totally unnecessary to bring anything but yourself and family. :)

Wow!  That will be two years in a row that Australia will be represented at the pig roast! 

Note to American's:  "Pop the boot" translated, means "open the trunk" of the car.   :D

Jeff, sorry to say I will not make it this year. I am having my right knee replaced and will not be mobile enough to come. Someone from here will be there though.

Jeff and Tammy

The Stump Jumpers would of have loved to be there this year.  But we will not be able to make it.

May you all have a great time.

You will have an extra camper spot for someone who needs it.

We need to start getting a count on how many people might attend. So far its looking kinda bleak looking back at this thread.  Its only about a month to go and I don't have a clue this year on what the attendance might look like. I've had very few people tell me they are coming but lots of people tell me they are not. So far I don't have a single request for a camping spot.

So, lets get a count. Please update the number as you add yourself.  :)

Jeff, Tammy and Stacy. Dogman Pete and Lynda,

The Number is now  5

With only a month to go, I'm thinking we need to cancel the pig and get a couple chickens.

I can't believe this is all that are comin'....

There's gotta be more.....Is the Southern Chapter gonna be represented?

It's worth the trip just for the door prizes let alone the grub and the great conversations  :D :D
