8th Annual Chicago meetup date announced
« on: January 03, 2020, 01:22:13 PM »
There are many meetups that take place around the country all throughout the year, none match the big daddy in Chicago.  Nothing against the others but this one gets members from all over the country and from around the world.

The location will be the same as last year @No1Agent 's house in Elgin, Ill

The date is July 18th.

Hoping to get some members who have never made the trip make it this year.   

Also maybe we can get @AnotherPintPlease to maybe come out and photo document the occasion.  I told you Mike we would let you know when the event is taking place.

... so the 8th anual Chicago meetup falls on my birthday this year. Hmmm Grill Therapy has got to find away out to Chi town for this.

I've been to a few of those Chicago meetups. Hosted a couple and been to a few others out here in the Mid Atlantic. From what I've seen out of SoCal, NE, St Louis and other locals, I think they all match up pretty damn well, and the effort that goes into each one deserves the same level of respect. The traveling banner has members signatures from all over on it. Not sure it's ever been to Chicago. Maybe it's time.

Nothing against the big daddy, but in my opinion the best meetup is the next one - wherever you are.

Marty,  I knew my comments would be taken wrong, really no disrespect to any meetup, they all are good.

Would be awesome to partake in a session with a professional Grill Therapist.  Hopefully weíll be able to celebrate your birthday with you[emoji1696]

I agree that the next one is the best one.  One day I'm hoping to make it out to the "Big Daddy" or Mid West meet up

THIS is one of my favorite days of the year.   It'll be nice to see friends, old and new. If you're on the fence about coming, just do it. Come with an empty stomach and a grill or 2 to show off. It's ALWAYS a GRATE time.
