The TR BBQ XV is tomorrow, and Corsair hooked us up!

It's a bit of a dreary day out on the big lake, but I've got a smile on my face anyway. The 15th TR BBQ is tomorrow, and I just unboxed a boatload of goodies that our friends at Corsair sent our way to give away to attendees.  That boatload includes no less than five HS70 wireless headsets, two Dark Core RGB SE mice, one K63 wireless keyboard, and a massive pile of t-shirts. Whoa. Corsair's own Justin Ocbina will be joining the party tomorrow to help us give away all the goods, too.

I'm short on time putting the finishing touches on the event, and I'm expecting a tent to be delivered soon, so I'm going to wrap this up with a big thank you to Corsair for all the great loot and one final plug for the BBQ tomorrow. This year we might be staring down a little more precipitation than normal, and we've definitely got a lot less beach than normal, but I'm just as excited as ever to hang out with everyone and chow down on zgirl's amazing food.

If there's any chance at all that you can drop what you're doing and get to Holland, MI before tomorrow afternoon, I can't recommend it highly enough. Just post in the thread and I'll get you the details. For those of you already on your way—or about to be, like TR honcho Adam Eiberger and the gear in the front-page image for this post—see you soon.

    Two epic Corsair-related stories…

    Justin and Henry are waving goodbye to everyone as they walk down the driveway, one of the kids shouts, “bye Corsair guys!” and Justin says “we have names too you know!” Too funny.

    My niece wins third place in the kids bean bag tournament, after agonizing first over which solar-powered bobble head to chose as her trophy, she then picks an HS70 as her main prize. Fast forward a few hours later after she’s back at home, I get a text with a picture of her smiling and wearing the headset, it says, “Soooo happy playing Diablo listening to Taylor Swift :D” – she’s 5. Priceless, completely priceless.

    Thanks Corsair guys!

    wait, what do you mean you got a lot less beach than normal? what happened to it?

      Lake levels are way higher this year than last.

      Yup, as drfish said, the lake is really high right now; a couple of feet above normal, give or take. The upper Midwest has had a very wet spring this year.

      If I’m estimating things correctly, a 2 foot rise in Lake Michigan and Huron (they are connected and so are always at the same level) corresponds to something on the order of 20 [i<]trillion[/i<] gallons. That's a [i<]lot[/i<] of extra water!

        BTW, literally the day after the BBQ, after the wind the attendees experienced was finished with it’s work, another two FEET of sand was washed away from the bottom of the seawall and down the coast. It’s an even dicier drop than it was before – even though the water level is the same.

          Heh. So ~2 feet water level increase over previous years, and 2 feet less sand. How deep is the water at the bottom of the seawall now? 3 feet or thereabouts?

      I googled this and found the RCR video. I’m so glad I found that.

    Yah know,
    There are yearly festivals that take up city blocks and live bands play in huge outdoor venues that started out as a guy and a BBQ with some friends.

    Here’s to what this may be in 10 years! 🙂
