Wow. Some things have come together at the last minute, and we have significant news about a pair of local TR events coming up in the next week.
First, there's the long-planned TR BBQ VIII, hosted by drfish of the forums, in Holland, Michigan this coming weekend. This event has been going on for years, and sadly, I've never been able to attend. Happily, it turns out there's a bit of an opening in my schedule this year, and if all goes as planned, you'll see me at the BBQ on Saturday, along with TR's biz guy, Adam. We'll try to bring a bag full of shirts and things to give away, if we can swing it.
Next, we're having an impromptu TR meetup here in the Kansas City metro area this coming Thursday evening, at a local watering hole, from ~5-7PM. I haven't yet decided on the exact location, but we should get that nailed down shortly. I'll post an update once we know. Any TR readers in the area are welcome to come. I'll be there, along with Adam, and we're going to try to rope David Morgan into coming, as well. I'd like to hear from you if you plan on coming, so we know how many folks we'll need to accommodate. Drop me a line via email or @scottwasson on Twitter, if you would. Thanks!
Update: We're going to have the KC area meetup at The Peanut in Lee's Summit. Follow the link for directions. I'll probably arrive a little bit early and stay a little past 7PM. I'll be wearing my navy-blue TR shirt with the old-school logo on it, and I'll try to rope Adam into wearing his TR garb, as well. Hope to see you there!
