From which direction on Rt 140 is best and which lane is best to get into the lot efficiently?
We'll probably be hitting the exit ramp on 495 at 1030 AM.

Thanks in advance.
As you go into the lot off of 140, regardless of what direction you come you want to be in the left lane as you look at the venue.

MITCH?????? is it you ????? I thought you lost BN many moons ago...Welcome Back !!!
Never lost it. :wink: :wink:
WOO HOO! Mitchie!

I can bring a table if needed, I don't have a tent. I am coming with two others who are first-timers and they will bring a dish to share. We should just do a potluck and put the food out on a table. Everyone bring something. Simple enough!

For those of us travelling from a distance that is way harder. We don't all want to show up with potato salad or something. I can do pretty good at things in the kitchen but if I do not have one I am left with little. That being said I may come up with something to share with the group, (non alcohol) that is easily done in my hotel room or on site. I think we need to make sure that there is enough gas for Tig's grill to start. How big is it? I can buy one bigger and ship it if needed.

You can pick up something at the Shaw's before you caravan in. You can probably even call ahead and pre-order something like a sandwich platter or wings or something. :P
You only have two options - havin' fun or freakin' out...

Good question. How big is the grill. I can bring something to toss on the grill and there is Shaw's and we'll have time before heading in to get things. If people are traveling from far away just hold off and see what is needed and buy it at Shaw's before we head into the venue.

And can I assume that we are not going to car-a-van in with any of the clubs? I don't want to get stuck in that random parking lot again.

It's a Coleman camping grill that uses the small propane tank. To give you an idea of size, I can fit about 6-8 burgers on mine. Tig said anyone is welcome to use it.

Anyone remember seeing that guy walking around the tailgate letting people sign his t-shirt? I think his name was Greyhound. That guy is awesome. Hope he's there again this year!

Open Invite - Great Woods 8/20/16

Post by opsoff1 »

Open invite to all you BN members - swing by our tailgate and say hi / introduce yourselves. We are in the Premium lot - two 4 ft blue sharks flying & floating over our tent/tiki bar. We do a prize wheel and funny games with free lei's, beads, tattoo's and shots - lots of shots...LOL. We'll be cookin', laughin' and sippin' all day. There when the gates open!
Hope to meet new folks, see old friends and make new ones.

Oh boy
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Life is short, live long!!

I'd rather be a wiseass than a dumbass.
