When taking a jab or two from my friend Billy about never getting to the river anymore I first suggested this as a joke but then after thinking more about it, why not?

Jack and I used to spend weeks at a time on the Ausable chasing those first cold run steelies and I can't tell you the years worth of BBQ we have cooked at Rib-offs all over the country. It's a natural fit.

Late October or early November over a weekend.
The Ausable river, Oscoda Michigan.
I can make the cabin arrangements cost will depend on how many we get to join in.
Entry to be determined but it will be minimal only to cover a few gag prizes and or supplement the booze fund.
Categories, don't expect the usual.

Before committing to this idea I would like to get some feel for the interested parties. I bet Ol Bear and Mr. Walt are in, maybe Slow Burn if anybody knows where to find him, who else?

A little get together sounds like lots of fun. I was telling my close friend Mike who helps me on the BBQ that we might be making a trip up to Billys for a couple of margaritas. It will depend on the dates have some hunting plans made and were making the trip to Jack Daniel's again.

I'm thinking margaritas ice cold beer and order out for BBQ, we could ask Billy if he know's where we could find some.......

Larry let me know what kind of plans your thinking send me an email......

Fellas I like how this all sounds for sure. I really need an excuse to get to force me to take the time to get to the river. Let's let this get legs and see if we can put some dates together.

Dave,
What weekend dates in November are definitely out for you?

Well Big Jack has chimed in as well and agrees the first weekend in November works for him.

As chairman, co-chair, secretary and janitor of this organization I hereby second the motion. November 5th thru the 7th is the date.

Jack and I are planning to leave Thursday evening for the cabin, boat and cooker in tow.

More details as they come available.

I will make the call to the cabin yet today and try to get us "the big house" to start with sleeps 6 comfortably which will keep costs down. I will also give them a heads up of possibly more cabins needed.

That's 4-6 guys that in for the day or the weekend. I don't call that a party I view that as more of a chance happening. Come on Ohio, Mich. folks get off the fence and come on North for some rod bending and or rib glazing. I bet we can get a dozen or better to join in.

I am thinking of asking Big Bear to host a BBQ clinic so as Billy and I can learn how to cook stuff. .

Billy,
I love the shore lunch idea and I think the little park area beside Whirlpool launch would be perfect for the idea as those of us that will have our boats in will likely be parked there anyway. It's coming together, nice.

I would ask our friends from AL but I am not so sure how they would do with ice freezing on the rod tips.... I am pretty sure they wouldn't call us "friends" after the weekend.
