drfish, with all the new people this year, dont forget to get..............NAME TAGS :)

Also, based on the list of who is bringing what, we still need some stuff....Veggies were the last unclaimed thing
I can stop when I get close and pick up a couple of trays....did that in the past.

What else do we need?

Indeed. Planning on sleeping outside in a tent this year, maybe even on the beach.

Name tags are already at the cottage, fresh Sharpies too. Got the board for the bracket and a number of other things there as well. More of anything on the list will be good but I think the essentials are pretty well covered and we're planning on making a GFS run tomorrow if needed. :)

Fyi, there will be some New Leaf action, if you have not yet left but want to share 3ds stuff.
Your ideas intrigue me; I would like to purchase stock in your company.

In town, have chairs, will get water & ice tomorrow AM as there's a Meijer's a block from my hotel. Anything else one might need from Meijer's is but a PM away.

I am about a half hour out. I do have some shopping to do upon arrival also I have to feed myself and my plus one.

Still we may end up at the brewery for a bit. Though I am not going to be staying late.

My little sister is just now being discharged from Holland Hospital, so I am out for this evening's activities. See y'all tomorrow.
I have nothing more to say about that.

Wife and I are definitely going to be there.
We are both kinda tired since we just moved a nice old lady to the other side of the state to get her out of bad situation.

I'll be bringing all the old computer crap the wife has been hounding me for years to get rid of at the parts swap.
Some of the machines have AT power supplies for anyone who is interested in machines that old. (Don't remember if they are 386's or 486's.)
Also lots of 350VA and other sized UPS's sans batteries if anyone wants. (Batteries have all been recycled.)

I'm really glad to be able to finally go, see you all there!
I wish to see things not as they are but as they should be.

I hate doing this at the last minute but I have to scrap the breakfast casserole idea. Meijer has been a disaster and I cannot find what I want. Sorry peeps. :(

Okay, I have a few parts and two laptops I'm going to bring, both professionally touched up (Inspiron 1505, Latitude E5500) in good shape, for sale or possible trade.

I'm planning on bringing dogs for the beach like last time and buns, and I'll see if I can grab a decent session beer and maybe some chips.

By the time the BBQ gets going I will be on the road myself. Here is my best wishes for great weather and a hugely successful TR BBQ X!

Assuming a fixed % of people participating the Cornhole Tourney, this one will be epic. The bracket should be the largest ever and the time to go through all the matches will be longer. You guys can probably calculate how many bags were thrown and all the other interesting stats. :o

Hmm, need to sign up an account to chat? Guess I am not talking then. Good thing you guys setting this up so early. I will be heading out soon myself. :)

Quality is pretty good!
