  • BBQ Update

    This is a place holder for this year’s official planning and information about the BBQ schedule location and general beat blitzkrieg.

    From the size of our BBQ last year we have had to make a couple changes mainly to the location we are currently bidding on renting out a section of park. By doing this we will increase the amount of room we have to spread out and try and give us dedicated room for the titanium chief and well as for our special meat grills and community grills. That and with a rented section they can’t shut us down (as fast). If you have any question or concerns that are vital to the planning or inner workings of the BBQ feel free to PM me.

    More to come….

    Bidding? You mean we may lose?

      Its more like getting them to agree to the terms we set.

              i pretty much haven't gotten my act together yet, and I know londo has been pre-occupied with life. godminus is so busy I haven't seen him around the ether for ages .. but we'll get there :) so no lists or concalls quite yet.

              to my knowledge the current location state is same spot as last year, if not a better spot than last year.
              if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

                Siviak has been busy too, but that guy is a douchebag and I say we count him out!

                  I just watched Apocalypse Now and had a great idea. Can we chop up a cow on the spot?

                    you know that water buffalo was actually killed during the shoot? that wasn't any special effect or prop mock-up... the crew just happened to be in the locals' village when they were performing a seasonal ritual and caught it all on film.

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

                        totally.

                        "we have no idea what all that fuss is about, officers. we just saw a bunch of people dancing in a circle around a pit of fire and hacking at a large moose. oh, these grills? well, we wouldn't want the meat to go to waste now, would we?"

                            Add me to the boat as well. After May 16th I'll have more time away from work, so I'll be more apt to getting on irc and the forums.

                              Shortly after last con, I did a remake of the Toxic BBQ website, its all ready to go, just lacking details as far as time, place, ect.. Past info that was still relevant has been move over into the new site. Assuming you guys still have the login info from last year, accounts are still valid and you should be able to login to update content.

                              The T-shirts were somewhat a bust last year.. I still have a box of them. So hopefully some of them left over will go this year.
