No Dposcorp, no vids.


Sheldon got some vids on his phone, but he has a super crappy connection at home so probably won't upload them until he can get to my house next. I'll be sure to post them.

Just wanted to say that this was my 1st TRBBQ experience. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to attend this year after a few years of sis_of_fish trying to get me to attend. It was something I hope to be able to make a yearly thing now. I'm also really glad Laura and I were able to give everyone the enjoyment of being able to remember the BBQ through the pictures we took. Next year I think I'll bring my good tripod for the group photos and maybe even have a remote for the shutter so we don't have to race a timer. I look forward to seeing everyone again next year and hopefully get to know some of you better than just a quick introduction. Thanks to everyone who made this great time a possibility, and see you all next year hopefully.

Yeah, Friday night Gleek proclaimed that I was the lamest of them all.

http://www.kissmeinannarbor.com/ committed to helping back in February, you guys couldn't have asked for a better weekend...On Sunday I grilled 144 burgers, 120 hot dogs, and 48 veggie burgers...so aside from being totally different it was exactly the same!

You had already won when I "rage quit" - let me just make sure that's understood. ("but if you got the next two in the hole!" - gimmie a break)
Playing you is the pinnacle of frustration for me, and I feel after all these years that I don't have to hide my dismay. If that comes off as "poor sport" I apologize.
That's not my intent. Maybe I'm wrong? You already *know* you will win every time you play. Having "hope" is a mistake to begin with when it comes time to play you. In my head in order to play a game, I have to know going in that I have a chance to win. To pretend to have a chance against you is a mental denial I have to engage in. I don't normally behave like that, ever. Just for you Kelli :)

Ned - sorry about that. (maglight)

Hide your dismay? Every year, I stand next to shoes while you play and we laugh at how pissed you get. LOL I missed it this year, but the "rage quit" story makes up for it.

Oh, almost forgot to give a shout out to gleek treating me, JBI, and sheldomaus to a tasty mexican breakfast before we left. Oh and also sheldomaus almost rolling his blazer when taking a sharp turn without braking :o

same. i love playing against more skilled players then myself and kelli is at the top of that list. one day in the near future i have hopes of winning against her in a tournament. i scored at least 9 points which is an accomplishment in itself.

and np on the mexi-b'fast, it's become a tradition going years back with just myself and sheldon. so much fun. glad we could add +2 to the list!

No I had not "won" scoring does not take place until after all the bags have been thrown. I have been ahead numerous times against people and ended up with no scoring taking place.

I completely understand that and have absolutely no issue with you venting all you want. It is actually quite entertaining. :D

You do whatever it is that you need to do. I completely understand how difficult it is to play against me. However the rage quit, while funny, might have been a bit much. ;) :D

Look I understand I am incredibly difficult to play against. I just love to play so I welcome the opportunity to do so and I have lost a couple of times at the BBQ.

It is possible I am not infallible. :D

You make it sound ominous. :lol:

But yeah... provided the handle isn't already taken, changing it is just a PM away.

OK so here's a question. I took the Wasson Cup on a 2000+ mile roadtrip that hit 6 US states and Ontario. Should I post the WC pics from the trip now, or put them on ClickClick's USB drive to save for BBQ2015?

Both, but I suggest keeping the best ones to the USB drive to entice people to come for the cup next year. ;)

The Wasson Cup came to Denver and the locals weren't invited for a viewing?

that cup is like TR's holy grail (literally too! lol), and everywhere it goes, the locals should be allowed for a viewing and photo op's! :P

I think what I'll do is sit on the pics and post them post TRBBQ2015. I got some good ones on this trip, but I forgot to get a few more that I had planned :cry:
