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!
