Hey Guys

Well that time is fast approaching once again!!! This year it will be Saturday April 13th, 2013. I will be renting out the clubhouse again as I did the last few years which can house around 200 people. This year I will try to setup some known good electrical outlets beforehand, vice finding out after we setup a bunch of amps!! LOL. For any that are interested, just drop a line here. I will send out a few personal invites to the local builders again....over the years we had quite a list!! Ron Thorn flew in, Jack Briggs, Ossie and Greg from 3 Monkeys Amps, Stike from Rowyco Custom paint and a few others I cant remember off the top of my head...the entire Maryland contingent made the trek, we had my buddy Dave drive down all the way from New Hampshire!! We have had some truly a GREAT times and and it seems to get bigger and better every single year!

We like to say its about the guitars, but honestly its more about meeting up, having a few beers, having some good BBQ, and just kicking off the summer with a handful of mojo!! Anyone is welcome to join in....if anyone needs ANY HELP I am more than happy to do all I can!!

Few years of group photos

For those not familiar, I live within 5 minutes of RDU airport anf htere are probably 10 - 15 hotels all within 5 miles of the house that are less than 75 bucks a night. We will usually have a get together at my house on friday night with some of the regulars that come every year and hang out drinking while I cook 100 lbs of pork for 24 hours on a BGE and a competition pellet smoker. On Saturday around 11 am or so people all just start rolling in and the get together is usually over around 6-7 pm and we hit one of the local establishments up that has a live band that day. I will try to keep an active roll call of who all is coming so we know about how much food to make and just roll with it.

Hey Shawn, next time you are around Paul ask him about the BBQ at the roadshow he was at when Fatsound hosted it. I brought 30 lbs of it and it disappeared so fast that all he got was the smell of it. Lolol. I am pretty sure that Grissom got some but Paul missed out cuz he hesitated...he came up to me and have me his card and we had a conversation about the proper way to BBQ. Lolol. I don't do Carolina BBQ, it's all dry rubs cuz I hate the taste of vinegar that they put in southern sauces...

Had a few people asking about hotels, so here is the quick list...pretty much anywhere near RDU airport is within 5 miles of my house.

Here is a quick cut and past of a list of hotels...

we had people crash all over the area...with assorted price ranges..LOL. I am literally 5 minutes from RDU airport so there are a BUNCH of different hotels.

Ed and Wayne stayed at the Courtyard Marriott for under 70 bucks and there is a Hooters right across the street!! LOL

Marriott Residence Inn - 2020 Hospitality Court Morrisville, NC 27560
http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/rduap-residence-inn-raleigh-durham-airport/


Fairfield Inn - 2750 Slater Road Morrisville, North Carolina 27560 USA

Courtyard Marriott - 2001 Hospitality Court Morrisville, NC 27560

Sheraton Hotel - 4700 Emperor Blvd | Durham NC, US 27703

The Hyatt is a little more upscale but is an extra 20 dollars...

I know that one of the guys last year stayed less than 3 miles from my house for under 60 bucks...cant remember which one it was. If you search for hotels near RDU airport, pretty much ANY of them listed that are in Morrisville are less than 5 minutes from my house. Also, if anyone flies in and needs a ride, I am more than happy to be your taxi for the day.

I used to work for a company based in Raleigh. Is the 42nd Street Oyster Bar still there? My wife loved that place. Maybe I can work out a deal with her since it's the weekend of our anniversary. :D

I also have to bow out this year due to a conflict over which I have no control. I'm real bummed too, but I won't be able to make it this year. I was really looking forward to it, too. :( Have fun guys!

Guys, I really don't know how to say this but I have a family emergency hitting right now as we speak and truly won't be able to pull this off this year. I apologize for the short notice, but this literally hit less than an hour ago and we are in a bit of panic mode right now. We are all ok and I will send a personal note to all who rsvp'd to his as soon as I get home this weekend.

I truly am sorry and really can't believe I have to do this

Hey Guys

Just wanted to ensure everyone that we are fine....its not a health or financial emergency....just something TOTALLY unexpected that we have to deal with and I dont want to put the burden of the BBQ on top of my wife and family while also dealing with this other highly volatile situation...its all good, just have to get this other crap dealt with once and for all....

For those that have been to previous BBQ's, you all realize that I put the wife through the ringer that week..LOLOLOL....I just cant do it to her on top of this other crap.
