Thanks Tim, we'll catch you next time.  Looks like nice weather ahead for Saturday, and I'm looking forward to the gathering. Low key is the order of the day - just grillin' and chillin'. I'll try to get over to the park in the next few days to scope out a pavilion, and will let everyone know where to meet.

See you there!

Stopped by the park after work today. Nice place. Let's plan to meet at the first pavilion Saturday around Noonish - the one called Black Oak. Just past the playground on the left side of the road. Parking will cost you $6.00 at the gate. Should be parking in front of the pavilion for easy unloading. I'll be there early to stake a claim.



Do bring:

Whatever kettle(s), charcoal, lump and misc. you need to cook your stuff.
Your stuff. For you, To share. Whatever. No rules. No minimum. No limits.
Drinks - No alcohol allowed in at the park, so bring something else to drink.
Comfortable chair - unless you like to sit on a wood bench all day. 
A bucket of some kind for charcoal - or wait of them to cool off and leave them in the kettle. No hot coal disposal at the park.
Kids, Spouses, SOs, MILss, SILs, siblings, first dates, newbies and an appetite.
Stuff to sell, trade, show off or give away. I'm bringing my Mod Month entry, and plan to cook on it.
Camera - to prove it happened.

What am I missing? Address?

I was putting the kids to bed tonight, and mentioned in passing that I was bummed that it looked like we wouldn't be able to squeeze in the Weber event-- just too many moving pieces tomorrow, and our best-case arrival time would be mid-afternoon anyway. 

My 5-year old daughter immediately burst into tears (real tears!), sobbing and completely sad.  I asked why she was so disappointed?

"Because I love the Weber Kettle Club," she said, her shoulders shaking and huge tears rolling down her cheeks.

So, uh, I think we might just make the trip tomorrow.  Dad will certainly do his best, because he also loves the WKC and doesn't want to discourage any emerging kettle devotion in the household.

...and on a related note, @Troy , how small do the WKC t-shirts run?

Sorry guys. Looks like I'm going to miss another one. I'm still trying to juggle this newborn with everything else going on. For some reasonI thought it was on Sunday.  I haven't had a chance to wire up my trailer yet. Have fun.

Good times on a nice Fall day in Maryland. With meetups, it's not the quantity, it's the quality, and I want to recognize two of our areas nicest members for making the day memorable. Shane (Peaspurple), Mike (Stavlund) and myself, along with assorted family and friends met this afternoon for some great food and good company. The park was very nice, even though Ranger 1 did not see eye to eye with Ranger 2 when it came to the pavilion rules. After dodging jail time, we were able to proceed with the set up.
My Mod-Month rig made it's first public appearance, along with my '79 18.5 for it's first cook.

A little chimney action on the crimson Joe got things started:

Things got a little messy.  :o Good thing I had table space!

The colored kettles competed well with the falling leaves.

Of course, Mike seems to think red kettles are just a little more perfect than any other color.  8)

And his daughter agrees. (And after last night's waterworks  :'( she was NOT going to be denied this meetup!)

Look Ma - No Grills! Maybe my best shot of the day - thanks to Mike's girls.


Nice way to end the meetup season, but we'll be back strong in the Mid Atlantic next year. And of course we'll be grilling through the Winter months. Keep the kettles warm WKC!
