DFW WKC Meetup UPDATE: Postponed!
« on: July 11, 2014, 06:46:15 AM »
MiniGrillin and I have been talking about getting a meet up going for us Texas guys in the DFW area.  We would love to see some of the guys from Houston, Austin, and San Antonio try to make it as well.

Location Ideas:  At a centrally located DFW Lake sometime in September.  I'd prefer mid-morning, because it will still be hot in September.  Joe Pool Lake and Lewisville Lake are two good bets.  Ray Roberts Lake is a little further North but has some good parks that we could go to as well.  Maybe something on September 6th or 13th?

Anybody that is interested in going, post in this thread and throw out your ideas.

Gents, I am just getting settled in the area after a move from Chicago, but I will certainly block off the decided date to make it!  I don't know where anything is yet so I am afraid I can't help with suggestions.

Lake Lewisville has a really nice park area near sneaky Petes. On the west side of the lake. Disc golf course too

Lake whitney towards Waco is kinda nice and that way we could maybe get some Austin guys over.

Or even Waco. Near the zoo is a REALLY nice park. Name escapes me at the moment. Lol..! Also has a disc golf park.

Nice!  Glad to have you down here, TBS.

Lewisville sounds good to me.  It's pretty central for those of us in DFW and right off of I-35E for anybody coming from the south.

There's two nice Corps park on the Western side of the lake called West Lake park and Oakland Park.  There is a lot of picnic pavilions (we got to have some shade) and some rest rooms there too.  Check it out on google maps and tell me what you think.

Will be there. Wherever.

Lewisville, Grapevine, have nice parks. Never been to Joe Pool.

Just have to make sure the park doesnt have a ban on open or pit fires. Which some consider a charcoal grill.

Unless you want to just sit around and stare at each other.

I can go check these locations out for amenities and such. Bathrooms and kiddos play areas if needed.  Make sure about the open fire pit idea...good thought on that BTW. I'm gonna go with it probably won't be an issue because there is a grill in those pics Max posted.

How does this work? Is this a bring your favorite dish kinda thing? How do we make sure we don't have everyone bringing ribs?

just dont bring anything that was lying on the asphalt on the way to the meet.

Can't imagine you'll have any overlapping food Mini, just throw out (on the thread that is) what you like to make and others will work around that. At the mid-Atlantic meet we ended up with everything from salmon to buffalo. Long smokes are generally incompatible with meet ups, unless you make ahead, but then the fun of live grilling is compromised. Have a blast!
