WKC in 2017
« on: February 22, 2017, 03:01:51 AM »
So the statesmen have been discussing 2017 and we realize that this year marks 65 years of the inception of the kettle.

2017 is also 5 years since the Weber Kettle Club has been around the interwebs.

The statesmen are planning events and special give away's throughout the year below is a quick list of things going on.  Additionally, we are in development of a WKC 5 years special handle that we will be giving away through the year, you will not be able to purchase these as there will only be a limited supply of them.

March - WKC had a Pat Pending avocado 22 donated and it will be auctioned off the proceeds will go to help fund special events.  The winner of the auction will also get a WKC 5 years limited edition handle.



May - May is National Burger month and Sunday May 28th is National Burger Day we will have an e-cook taking place and it will have a sponsor from a company friendly to WKC that will be giving away a griddle as the prize.

June - @Shoestringshop is hosting a meetup in Friendship WI http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/meetups-events/friendship-wi-meetup-2017/

July -  We have July 8th for the 5th annual Chicago meetup, Brian @zavod44 has decided to host once again, it is a great time for all.


Sept - Mod Month document your cook mods now so you can submit them in September.

Nov/Dec - Secret Santa - This was a huge success in 2016, let's make it better in 2017.

I am sure we will have other things to add, if you have ideas and would like to help organize events like e-cooks or meetups let us know and we will talk it through.

@zavod44 @LightningBoldtz

Just wondering if the July 8 date for the Chicago meetup is still tentative, or if it has been made concrete?  Trying to get my ducks in a row so that I can attend again this year.
