Cancel your plans, raid the bank account, and saddle up the family truckster on the weekend of August 11th so you can attend the ninth annual TR BBQ event on the shores of Lake Michigan. Dr. Fish has dropped all of the details into this forum thread, including a pledge of an even larger raft this year, which I find difficult to imagine.
The TR BBQ is a most excellent gathering of folks from the forums and fans of the site, complete with actual barbecued ribs, swimming, a baggo/cornhole tourney, a hardware swap meet, swimming, a campfire on the beach, and endless talk of PC hardware, techniques for brewing beer, and anything else you might see discussed regularly in the forums. Also, possibly flamethrowers. I was able to attend for the first time last year, and I'm hoping to make a return appearance, schedule willing. We should have some TR swag there for attendees again, as we did last time. The question is: can we coax Geoff or Cyril into attending? Hmm.
Anyhow, you should be making plans, because it's loads of fun with a great crowd of folks, with true midwestern hospitality and friendliness on constant display. People came from as far away as California last year, I believe, and I'd like to see us beat that record this time. If you have questions about anything, including logistics, where to stay, and the like, just hit the forum thread and ask away.
