This year's TR BBQ, edition XI, is almost here. We'll be gathering in Holland, Michigan, on the shores of Lake Michigan, on Saturday, July 19 for barbecued ribs, a cornhole tourney, a hardware swap-meet, fireworks, and much more.
The folks at MSI have made sure several lucky BBQ-goers will come away with something special. They've kicked in some excellent PC hardware for us to give away, including the gorgeous Z97 Gaming 7 motherboard, a Twin Frozr Gaming GeForce GTX 760, and a swanky MSI shirt.
It doesn't get much better than that. Some of these prizes will go to the winners of the cornhole tourney, but we often find arbitrary reasons to give out others at random, too. If you show up, you'll have a chance to win something. And we have more prizes still in the works.
We'd very much like to have you join us at TR BBQ XI, if you can. This is a family-friendly event where you can watch our head forum moderator sample an enormous range of craft beers and still offer a cogent explanation of complex engineering principles. There's nothing else like it. All of the info you need to know is in this forum thread. Drop in and RSVP, if you would.
