The eleventh annual TR BBQ is coming soon! The date is a little earlier than usual this year, on July 19, and I'm hoping that means even more TR readers and forum-dwellers will be able to attend.
For the uninitiated, the BBQ venue is Dr. Fish's lake house in Holland, Michigan, on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan. The BBQ has grown over the years into an epic, day-long event that features some truly excellent barbecued pork ribs, a cornhole tournament, a PC hardware swap-meet, a massive raft on the lake, fireworks, and a campfire on the beach in the evening. Plus lots of great conversation and as much giveaway hardware and apparel as I can cram into the back of my car. Also, flamethrowers and a potato cannon, usually.
Here's the group shot from last year:
And a look at the fireworks selection, which turned into an exceptional display:
Here's the prize table from last year, with hardware from several of our sponsors:
Perhaps you're getting the idea? Seems like nearly everyone who attends once ends up making the BBQ an annual tradition. It's a great way to spend a summer weekend.
The BBQ is an inclusive, family-friendly event, and we'd love to have you join us this year. If you're interested, drop into the TR BBQ XI thread in the forums to get more info and to let our hosts know you're planning to attend. Hope to see you there!
