Once again, it’s that time when the weather gets right, the moon gets full, BBQ smoke fills the air, and the beer runs cold.

Judy & I will be hosting another get-together Saturday May 1st on our little slice of heaven just outside McIntosh.
Folks will begin arriving around 11:00 am and we’ll party as long as we can still stand.

This is a family oriented gathering, so families and children are welcome.
Bring your wife or girlfriend BUT don’t bring both at the same time—it gets a little hairy when ya do that.
Heavy drinkers shall surrender their keys; overnight guests will be welcome; on-site camping is permitted.

Brokenbit has committed to bring his Green Egg with slabs of ribs and several birds.
Bud, my bud from work, is likely to bring his trailerable BBQ pit.

McIntosh is halfway between Liberal Gainesville and Conservative Ocala and lies on the spectrum some might still call the wild, wild west.
Please RSVP so we know how much ice to buy and how many hay bales we’ll need for sleeping quarters.

If you’re coming, please bring something to share: your favorite beverage, dessert, or a side dish. Methinks we’ve got enough meats for main courses.
Bring a chair too.

-- Gary, Florida

Thanks for the invite Gary but the missus and I will be shooting rapids up in the mountains that week. I’m sure it will be a blast. Tip one back for me.

Alright you Floridians, Saturday is the day if you want to come to a get-together. So far, one Jock has responded. Some from the IAP and Woodnet will be there as well as members of our WWing Club.
I hope some from Jacksonville, Orlando, and the Tampa area can make it as I’m centrally located to all 3.

Hey Gary,

How did it turn out? Sounded like a great chance to meet some fellow LJs!
