    Alot of you folk know Dan... all-around great guy and mentor to many. Well, He's been dealt a tough hand, and the cards make it tough for a bluff. Anyway, putting together a local to MI-OH-IN-IL get together to help out and support the man- Date of Oct 17th in Columna, MI- West coast area

    http://www.michigan-sportsman.com/fo...d.php?t=302964

    Sooo anyway...
    about 3 weeks to go and tryin' to get details set up. I know many are busy and it's a close call on timing, but hey if ya can- by God it's appreciated!

    Looking for some sides...potato salad and slaw. Also anyone that can bring a cooker... hi-temp capable would be good. We got some yardbird and sausage already coming. I was hoping to have the Beast ready, but because of my stupidity with my body, I dunno...I cannot guarentee it.

    Also, just a roll call of those that can confirm they will be there for logistics purposes. Lotta Mi-IN-OH folks are pretty close... LOVE to have ya!

    Love ya Dan, and I'll be yer pitbitch- yes, Dan refuses NOT to cook. Whatta guy!

    Dang wish I could be there , I have talked to Dan many times and consider him a friend. Wish I could meet Him in person. And even though he is a Royal Oak Thief I'd still shake his hand. <----<<- in joke. [​IMG]

    I'll be heading back from a pinball expo in Chicago that day, probably passing through between 7-9 PM depending on how soon I get packed up at the show. Is that too late? I've never met anyone on here in person yet but I always enjoy putting face to a name, and everyone on here has been nothing but great. In fact, just about everyone I've met in MI. (outside of Detroit at least) has been cool since I moved here in '92 (against all advice from others lol).

    I would encourage you to stop by if you can. Rich and Dan were 2 of the 1st bbq forum folks I met in 'real' life back in early 08 along with several others and it is just great to get to know these folks better in person.

    Godspeed Dan.

    Allright peoples, it's down to the wire. At the risk of seeming a nag, is ANYONE from the SMF gonna make this event? We're prolly covered, as we have somewhere between 100-125 I hear confirmed, and will be able to feed 200 we figger.

    But it would be cool to know. Dan's a great guy, and I bet he's helped you at one time er another. If you can, he'd love to see yaz!
