When and where?
Good morning!

This is Albert Rivera and would  like to kick off some type of gathering in North Alabama depending on interest.

My thoughts are that a few may express an interest and probably will become involved in the organizing effort.

I do not feel it will be successful unless others aside from me get involved with the planning; folk have to assume ownership in the decisions so it meets the expectations of the group.

I am not afraid to believe this is doable.

If this is like most projects 20% of the folk will join in and then only 20% of the folk that join in will do all the work... that is the way it is as with most things.

Pineywoods has already sent a PM to all the North Alabama members and we will probably get a few to respond; a few is all it is going to take.

To avoid folks getting discouraged I feel that a gathering needs to happen even if only 3 or four couples get together initially.

The common factor will be the love of outdoor cooking and the fellowship aspects, it should come together very nicely.

I am going to assume you may have an interest if the date, and place are good for you; follow this post and start asking specific questions and stating specific interests and suggestions.

Let's put this thing together and have some fun!

God bless you,

Albert Rivera

Kat and I tried this a while back and it fizzled out. She has since gone and I have been away. I asked Piney to start this Community in hopes of getting together. I hope it works out.
