The July 15th date is all but confirmed at this point. Will change the thread title once it's 100% certain. BTW, we'll have a fancy new two month other daughter by then. :D
TR BBQ XIV is coming soon. Mark your calendars for 7/15/17.

I'll mark off the weekend of the 15th on the calendar! Should be lots to talk about this year. 

I'll likely be clearing most of my test cases out of my attic this year, so if you want a free or nearly-free case (some sweating on the cornhole grounds might be involved), make plans to be there.

Right? I'm thinking we all sign up, choose an order, and grab one each till they're gone.

It's a good thing my motorcycle won't have a passenger and I have a large trunk. ;). Down side? I can't hit the broad side of a barn.

Unless anything unforeseen comes up between now and then that social norms dictate are unskippable, I should be able to attend again this year.

I have a great idea for a shirt, but they are so much hassle with so little payback, I just don't have the drive to do one this year. :(

I've had a few good ones, just 0 artistic bone in my body when it comes to drawing. I had a good buffalo logo done up last year. There is also a more universal one which would be just the TR logo but instead of the magnifying glass looking at a circuit board and traces it would be a grill with hot dogs.

Only half being a smartass, why not hit up cafepress, vistaprint, or zazzle?

That's possible, but I'm not sure I want to dig into how effective the could be a fund raising. Plus, that would open things up to non-attendees, which is fine I guess, but the BBQ is still in this weird official-unofficial status... Plus, I write for TR, but I'm not an employee. So, I don't want to cross any lines trying to "make" money on their name if it's not coming from people that I've hung out with in person. Just kind of a weird situation that I'd rather not complicate. I'm sure it would be fine with everyone involved, but I just don't even want to go there.

Edit: BTW, good thing the BBQ isn't today: Holland pier live stream & Local news link Our house is one of the many without power.

So set it up for 0$ profit pricing. I believe Cafepress allows that, and I'd imagine at least some of the others will.

Just an unofficial T-shart, for unofficial aficionados of this time-honored but unofficial event.

Bundle the shirt with a +6 month membership sub and put the profits back into the site. ;)

That's good. I'm hoping to make the trip on motorcycle this year, and those big Amoroso's cases aren't aerodynamic *at all*.

My friend and I are planning on making it out there on our bikes, too. I know parking there is limited, but can we arrange a spot for bikes to park at the cabin? We'd need something to put our kickstands on.

Forge, what kind of bike do you have?

Yeah, there's room for them wherever, and scrap wood we can use for kickstand weight distribution.

Losergamer04 - I have an ancient Suzi GS550L currently, but I'm hoping to have something a bit shinier by late July. The FJ-09 I was eyeballing just sold while I fiddled with my tax return, though. We will see.
