My mom has agreed to feed the geeks this year, so attendees are in for a treat! The premier athletic event is our traditional Baggo tournament where, unlike in years past, anyone has a chance to win!* The conversation and the people you'll have it with are top-notch, and you can count on them to supply some sweet deals at the inevitable hardware swap as well. Stay until dark, and we'll have a bonfire and obligatory smores on the beach.
All TR readers and their families are welcome!
Posting this now because I'm pretty sure of the dates already, either July 30th or August 6th.
TRBBQ VIII will be August 6th! Mark your calendars!
OMG we gots teh interwebs! We'll be Livestreaming the BBQ for the first time ever, it'll be almost like being there!* Start watching at http://www.livestream.com/sheldomaus around 11:00 or so. I'll have the webcam on my laptop doing the streaming so I can move it around occasionally.
* - not really, we're talking highly compressed ultra crappy steaming webcam footage here... You should still try to be there in person. Also, you'll miss the smells, the food, swimming, hardware swapping, etc...
BTW, here's a link to the official BBQ hardware swap thread.
Edit 6/1/11: Looking for a rough idea of total attendees; please post and let me know.
