    Sorry submitted before I finished.......

    What do you guys think? Personally i like our location because we had that whole corner to ourselves and had a buffer away from those other sites that were all tents and closer together. Being closer to the wash house would be convenient but we'd be closer to the general population LOL

    In case there is any questions about me booking the site Ron had last year. Yes I contacted him before booking. Yes if things change I will gladly give up the site for him.

    I was looking forward to redeeming my self from the pitiful performance of throwing the bean bags.

    I was expecting to learn how to cook this time...... I think if we do the side dish one again ill have to just put a bag of chocolate candy out. Don loved the decorating job his girls did with the last one.

    Howdy everyone, Sorry i've been out of town and haven't had a chance to get all caught up on this. I'm also going to book the same site i had last year as well as the one across that held the tent so we have that communal area reserved like last year.

    Don - i probably wont get that site next to me again that you stayed in since i'm already getting 2 sites....your welcome to stay in my site unless you wanna book that one you were in last year.

    Joe - you going for the same spot you were in or possibly closer?

    What are everyone's thoughts on canceling the chicken comp and just doing a communal lunch? And adding a Cornhole (beanbag toss) tourny?

    I am game for almost any comp. I am looking forward to just chilling out and not having to stress about anything. So whatever the group wants to do is good for me. The bean bag toss might be a good one so the better halves and any kids that show up can join in........ the wife has been wanting me to makeone, so maybe I will have too so I can practice and not embarrass myself again.....

    Ive never been to one of these so just wanted to ask, have there been a good # of kids that have come to these? If i can convince the wifey to come it'd be us and 4 kids ranging from a 13 y/o to a newborn lol.

    If there is a spot open closer I will book it. I was pretty happy with the spot I had last year. I will book it as soon as my funds replenish.. Just bought a harley davidson electra glide ultra classic with cash so I'm broke as in broke broke...lol

    i should have my new board as well that my uncle is making me so we can have 2 games at once!
    SushiTampa we'd love to have you and your family join us. I believe we've had kids, every year, ranging from small children to middle/highschool age. This group has always been a very tame one and everyone is super friendly so you and the family would have no problem fitting in :) 
    Joe....that is wayyy to many names for any bike/vehicle haha:) Are you bring that down as well?  Also whatever spot works best for you is fine, just couldn't remember if you booked before most of us last year or not

Sushi.. your more than welcome to come bub... there's plenty of kids running around ... tell your wife to ask Mrs. Boykjo if she liked coming to the N FL.

    I've got a EZ-up as well as a smaller version of the fixed frame like Ron had last year. i bought the 10x10 version. we can use that as well.

    Chicken for Friday night could work...i was thinking Friday night we might make a dinner for people as they are pulling in. Since i'll be there in the AM we could throw some stufff on my smoker to cook allday. 

    What thoughts does everyone else have?

    Our ez up was destroyed in a storm. We are looking for a new one. So a maybe for us on that one.
    I have the propane burner, pots and pans.
    We picked up 1 6' table and most likely will get another 1 or 2 by then.
    I may have to come up with another option for a smoker. It looks like the one I used is getting relocated. I was looking for an excuse to make a mini or jumbo mini.......:biggrin:

    So I was telling Charlyn about the bean bag and needing to build one, well now I have to make one for the school and one for home now.....good thing you can get 4 boards out 1 sheet of plywood.....

    I am down with doing the chicken or another on Friday. Weather I get there in the morning or at night again will be a week of decision. It really depends on the girls and Charlyn. If they drive seperate I may stay the night Sunday, not real sure it might be a decision while we are there. We do have the spot for 3 days......
