Well, @aigheadish , I'll be there in "Spirit"! When you notice an image of a Cowboy warming his hands by a fire, that's where I'll be.....
Have fun, y'all- and travel safely!

yes, I still will not be able to attend.  In years past we always played games and got prizes.  My daughter won a game, and we got some great leg-rite legs for a bench.  last time several of us also brought gifts to serve as prizes.  I plan to mail some and for those new to the pig roast, assuming Jeff and Tami still plan to give away prizes, you could all bring something for a prize.  If able.  It adds to the fun, and everyone loves to go home with something.

The raffle was great fun, and they kept calling numbers until all the prizes were gone if I remember right. All good stuff too! I am still enjoying my WM suspenders on a regular basis. :wink_2:
 But surely the highlight for me was the Gal that won the small bench I donated, she was over the moon happy and had her eye on it since she came in. I had not been sure how it would go over, being our first time there, but she extremely pleased. IIRC, Georgia won the table runner that my wife donated and it was something she too had her eye on.
 It's really nice to donate something and have it land with someone who really likes it.

Yeah, I remember raffles to as part of the fun, now that you mention it. It had been 10 years. :wink_2:

Well, I was sure hoping for a response on maybe some folks heading on up to our beloved U.P.  postroast.

Tammy and I are going to get started on Tammy's requested project. A screen enclosed "fish shack" by the edge of the pond. Its going to be built on 4 piers using materials we can find on the property. We'll pick out some trees, cut some logs, and mill out what we need. I have enough reclaimed steel to roof, and short side a structure. I may even have enough screen. I have no design either. Anyhow, anyone that wants to come hang is welcome.

I'd be there if I had the time Jeff, I'd love to discuss your pond some, while looking at it.

I am going to do my DanGdest to get to the pig roast.  I was looking at the Hidden Hills Campground website and noticed that they have the option of adding a tent to a camper campsite for an additional fee.  That is looking like a good option for me since I'll be traveling alone and the nightly temperatures in Michigan in August seem like a welcomed respite from what we have.  If anyone staying at Hidden Hills is open to me crashing their party, send me a PM or give me a call at 863-640-5726.  I think that I'll plan to stay Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.  

Thanks, Kyle

I assume there'd be room on my site @caveman, if you don't stay at the VIP location.

I'll see how time goes when I head back home on Sunday. If I can I'll make a detour to Detour for a tour. :thumbsup:

I would sure love to go up north.  the concert we are attending that has been planned for 6 months is in KC on the 2nd.  We could head up north, but I only have about 5 days off after and have to get there and back, and that makes a short turnaround.  but we will see.

Played a campfire gig yesterday with some friends of mine, made me look forward to the Pig Roast. Only a couple weeks away...  smiley_wavy

Well, its getting real!  ffcool  

Today upon inspection I found the bottom of the pigroaster had corroded through. Didnt take but a couple years of non use. i found some sheet metal scraps and made a big overlay patch so the burner has a perch. I ran it full tilt at +500° for about an hour so I think we're good.

A critical piece of infrastructure! Of course, you could always switch over to wood fired as we always did, but the construction may not be compatible for that. Either way, we will have a good time. We don't know any other way. ffcheesy
