2nd Annual North Carolina Smokers Gathering April 26th, 27th and 28th 2013 (Now with lots of pix)

Discussion in 'Events' started by alelover, Jan 13, 2013.

  1. An official date has been chosen for the 2nd annual NC gathering. Once again the event will take place at my "sprawling estate" in Concord, NC. This event is open for anyone who would like to attend whether you live in NC or elsewhere. Spend the whole weekend or just a few hours.  We will have several smokers available to cook on and we have room for some tents to be pitched on. There are also lots of lodging options around the area.

    We have not come up with a menu just yet and that is where you come in. If you are planning on attending and would like to cook something for the group, please post it up or you can PM Solaryellow or myself.

    For those who have not attended a SMF gathering before it will be a weekend of relaxing, eating, and fellowship. It is a chance to meet some of the great SMF'ers you interact with everyday. You won't find a nicer group of people or better food. Last years gathering was a great success and we hope for an even better turnout this year. This year we plan on some surprise giveaways too. So please make time for a great weekend you will remember for years to come.

    Please post up if you plan to attend so we can can keep track of how many to expect. Solaryellow and I both look forward to meeting some wonderful new people! And seeing the great friends we made last year.

    Here is a link to last years great event.
