2011 Pigroast Video feed and photo thread.
« on: July 31, 2011, 09:15:45 AM »
Just getting prepared a couple days ahead of time. I'm embedding the video feed in this post. You will be able to watch here when we have the camera on-line.  So far so good on the weather forecast hope it holds true as it's a lot less work if we don't have to set up a bunch of awnings for rain. Warm for here, but should be cooler for our southern friends.  :)

Cooler is mid 90's and lower.  Cool would be mid 80's and lower.
Do I need to bring a jacket for evenings?

Nope shorts and a tank top should be fine.  :)












Pay back for your little board gag the other year.  ;)
They are showing low 60's at night in the forecast.

I think everything is relative. I about Froze to death last time I went to Florida.  

You might want a jacket, but I think its going to be perfect and a real breath of fresh air for everyone as we have been in the 90's as well. 91 right now at our bank.

As you are setting this up so much in advance, don't forget the facial recognition technology so that the thread can identify for us those in attendance.

Sure Tammy.  But why go cheap?  Why not have every FF attendee wear a T-shirt with a number and their name printed across their shoulders, like a football jersey? :D

Here is a blast from the past. From our First Forestry Forum Gathering. Back in August of 2003. We are standing in front of the statue at the CCC Museum.

That one was not a pigroast. It was a picnic where the Forestry Forum had an invitation from the state of Michigan to join them for the 100th anniversary of State Forestry. Those of us there consider it the first pigroast although technically it was not. Several of us met up here at our house the night before, just like we still do to this day.

I'd like to add, that everyone in that photo other than two, is still an active forum member. One that was not a member then, but was the father-in-law of Whitepe which he still is, and the other is Mike P's grandson which he still is too. :)

I was going to test the video feed this morning, but the weather is kinda crappy. Tomorrow we'll be mowing and getting the yard ready to start moving in tables and the food awning and stuff like that. Thats when I'll probably put the camera our for awhile.  Burlkraft arrives later today. He's my right arm this year. :D

Ya know, for us stay at homes, a walking line up would be cool.  Say, 11:00 have folks line up and walk past the camera, stating their board name.

It could work. 8)

Maybe we could have a soul train theme and they could come up through the dance line with a name tag.
