Yep, it's that time of year again. Summer's coming, and so is the annual TR BBQ on the shores of Lake Michigan, hosted by long-time TR Forums fixture drfish. Here's his pitch for this year's event, which sounds better than ever.
Clear your calendar and come to Holland, Michigan on August 6th for the eighth annual Tech Report BBQ! 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, check out the forum thread for more info.
No word yet on whether the flamethrower will be back, but we can all hope.
We haven't done much in the way of real-life meet-ups over TR's history, so this annual event is a very exclusive opportunity to see folks in person. Dive into the forum thread for suggestions on travel and hotel arrangements and such.
