4th Annual Chicago Meetup 2016
« on: July 10, 2016, 09:48:15 AM »
Edited
Here is a group shot from this year's event.



@zavod44

Brian has once again extended the invite to his house for the Chicago meetup of 2016.

This is a rare opportunity to get to see some of the core members of this group and see some of the most treasured kettles in the midwest.

We have had members from other countries drive over 8 hours to attend this event, if you have not had the chance to attend I highly encourage it.

The event will take place on Aug 6th.  More details to follow in this thread as they become available.

I was wondering if there was gonna be a get together this year. Last years was awesome and Brian was a more than fantastic host. It will be great to see everyone this year and the FANTASTIC Webers everyone brings along. Oh yea...one more thing, the food was out of this world.

Looks like I'm on the every other year pace - I can't make the 6th unless a miracle happens. These meetups get better and better every year, and it hurts to miss one!

I'll provide, pop, water, coolers and of course plenty of grills to cook on.  I'll have some Kingsford around but if you like special charcoal bring it along.  Last year most people brought something to grill, but it's not necessary.  If you can make it please come, your not obligated to cook anything.  If you have grills you want to bring and show off please bring them.  If you have stuff to trade...that is always on the table too.  I'm sure I have some stuff that will be in the trading or selling block......

Initially, I am saying no but the wife was tossing out some ideas where I could justify making the trip.

We'll see.

For those sitting the fence, my wife and I made the trip last year and for me it was the highly of 2015.  To be able to mingle and with other like minded kettle heads it was such a pleasure.

As I said, We'll see

@LightningBoldtz I know in the past I may have said I would use your Lions grill as a commode, but if you show up, I'll even let you display that grill and vow that no harm will come to it, at least from Bears fans, can't speak for the Packer faithful.....

You are driving a hard bargain it is getting more tempting.  :)

Whoa, whoa, whoa!!!  The Packer faithful are a peaceful bunch. Unless someone's bringing a Vikings kettle, which might spark a little insanity. 
Schedule conflicts kept me away last year. This year looks golden though. Looking forward to it.
Obviously looking for a Glen Blue (who isnít?😂).

Looking for anything Happy Cooker, including any re-branded as Montgomery Ward.  Iíve amassed a nice collection, but Iím missing a few still.  Let me know if you can help a fella out🤞
