I'm sure I'm good for either date.  Would really enjoy doing this again.  Had a great time the first time and would have fun doing it again.  I will do everything I can to make sure I have my schedule cleared for this event.

One last suggestion for a location, Catoctin Mountain National Park, Chestnut Picnic Area.  I know some folks who work for NPS, I could check and see what would be involved but I know the picnic area and it would be a nice setup.

Catoctin mtn is a great area. I ventured up there to look into buying a performer from a guy heh (I passed on it). That'd be a pretty central location IMO.

I can't commit, unfortunately... Having a toddler really puts a wrench in weekend planning.

Let's see what WeberMD gets back from the park and see if that works. Otherwise I would like to check out the Catoctin location, but still open to other suggestions. It would be nice to be able to reserve a pavilion for sure. No rain dates, we're going to cook no matter what!

Awesome, can't wait. Kinder farm park is quite a nice place.

I would be good at Catoctin or in Millersville.  Either would be ok.  In the Catoctin setup I know from going to Frederick Md a good amount that they have the Catoctin Zoo.  Not sure how it is but heard its nice.

Any word MD? I notice their annual Harvest Festival is the 11th. Not a bad thing if we could grill up some fresh veggies, but the pavilions may be spoken for.

Marty,

A few unanswered email messages and telephone calls.  Customer service at this place is terrible - this idea may be a bust.  Did you have any luck reaching anyone?

Did not get a chance to call Friday - but will tomorrow. Not a bust yet, but let's agree on Plan B. Anyone have a place in mind? I can also do Sunday the 12th if everyone is flexible in that regard. Given the Harvest Fest on the 11th at Kinder, the next day might be more open. Will try to confirm tomorrow.

I will do the salmon, but only if someone brings me a 26.  ;-)

Mike, that would make a GREAT! door prize.

The salmon or the 26? I say both.

shhh, I kept that wording intentionally ambiguous so that I could make a play for instant ownership of someone's 26.  Especially if it's a flat-top.

Hey guys - Kinder Park is a bust for the 11th due to the Harvest Festival, but the 18th is open. I can make it that day, but want to see how many others can shift a week before we lock it in. If the group is less than 20 we don't have to rent a pavilion, (just saved $180!) just show up and use it with the possibility we may have to share it. No facilities to dispose of hot coals, so we'll have to let 'em cool off and take 'em with us. Shouldn't be a big deal.

If the 18th is a no-go, we'll have to find another place to play on the 11th. You are welcome to come back to my place in PA, and if it's raining we can grill under the car port. Won't be as formal as the last time, but that might be a good thing.
