Hi Bert. I think everything turned out pretty well, but that's up to others to judge. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to take pictures, but a buddy of mine did. He said he'd get them to me today or tomorrow. I'll post when they get here.
I just ran into the house for my checkbook :) You guys are missing a great time. Still a good bit to go if you want to run over :) Del's knives are beautiful. A local Damascus maker made a surprise visit with some of his goods, Bob Eggerling (www.eggerlingdamascus.com). Butch has his tuna...
Hi Moogi :) There din't seem to be much interest this year in Friday night. I expect Eldon will be here, but everyone else was non-commital, so I didn't make any reservations. I'd guess Ian can make the tryout :)
I think we had "stuff" to cut the first year, but no one seemed to bother. I even had a case of whole chickens for folks to try out their debas... We'll have about 40# of beef for anyone to test ;) but hopefully that will be tender. I could easily pick up a 50# bag of onions if everyone...
Butch, not sure I understand. If you're asking if it's ok to drive your pickup to where the power is, yes, that's fine. Just be here early enough that you don't have to drive around anyone's tables, etc. Boy I hope this rain stops and it can dry out a bit.
Is this the one? :) Given his choice in knives, I'm not sure. Did you see him struggle to cut the zuc ?
Best price I found, including shipping is at Amazon... LINK
Butch, here's a picture of the 220 plug I had installed. If you need any adapters or extension cords, please post your needs as there are members willing to help out. This is installed behind the pergola.
There will be several off duty members of law enforcement in attendance.
I have no problem with cigars or cigarettes (actually, that's your problem), but I ask that you respect others and the property. Smoke in areas away from non-smoking attendees and don't throw any residue on the ground...
