This is just going to be a quick blog to get you to mark your calenders. I will post the rest of the details and a map in the very near future.

I have mentioned in a few PMs that I’ve been thinking about hosting a southeast Michigan LJs BBQ this spring or summer at our beach property in Novi, MI. Well, I’ve finally come up with a definite date. The BBQ will be on Saturday May 8th, 2010.

Here is what I’m hoping to have as far as activities:

- Pot luck meal and snacks (We should be able to keep track of who’s bringing what on here) I have a gas grill, charcoal grill and a fire pit for hot dogs.

- Lumber swap. Everybody will bring a nice piece of lumber and I have a fun idea of how we’ll so the swap. Each piece of wood will be numbered with a ticket and we will draw matching tickets from a hat. Then!!! We all have until July 8th (2months) to post a finished project with which we use the piece of wood that we took home. It will be in a contest fashion and the winner will receive a prize. Is this something that you guys/gals would be interested in?

- If you enjoy fishing, we will be on Walled Lake, so bring your rods.

- Any other suggestions are more than welcome. One way or another we should have a pretty good time.

Cheers,
Kristoffer H.

Sounds like a good time. I miss Michigan. I used to live in Marquette and my folks lived in the Detroit area.

It’s too far from Louisiana for me to make it, but I heard Mike’s doctor had him on a diet… so can you just UPS me his portion of the BBQ? :-)

I’d like to start around 2pm, but I know that most of you either have something going on in the morning or you have a little bit of a drive. If 3pm sounds better, please let me know.

If you would like to bring a dish or some meat to grill, please let me know in a private message and I will post names and dishes (hopefully) 2 weeks before the BBQ.

I will be sending Martin all of the info (including a map) by the end of this week so he can post it on the LJ calender.

-- Cheers and God Bless
