Well both the bosses (TulsaJeff and my wife) said it's so much fun let's do it again so it will be April 13th, 14th and 15th, 2012. We look forward to seeing all our old friends and making some new ones. If you've been a member forever or just joined today you are more than welcome to attend
The property is just outside of Quincy, Fl just west of Tallahassee and just south of Bainbridge, Ga any and all are more than welcome. Its not a bad drive from a lot of places and is not far off of I-10. You can fly into Tallahassee and we can arrange pickup there. We will have camping on site we have lots of space for tents and have power and water for several RV's as well. There is a campground with cabins and many motels not far away I'll post some info about them soon. This property is out in the sticks but we do have water and power and a few other amenities the camp area is a couple acres of cleared land with some buildings. We have several pole barns and a building with a kitchen. Last year we had three large reverse flow smokers running with lots of food coming off them you won't go hungry we promise ya.
