Actually, I do believe we've always left this as a general consensus of the board. So whatever you guys opt for a date, is what we shoot for. I know I've missed a couple because of dates (and passing of family too), Chris has missed some as well with conflicting dates. No use lots of people missing it because of the few (I know life goes on without my food LOL).
Jerry, thanks for the link. Wow! Sounds like a great time and that you put on a spread that is beyond description. Don't have any idea what my schedule will be next spring, but I would love to attend the Hohdown if possible. I'd be more than willing to help you in the camp kitchen even if it is just washing dishes. As a newbie, I'm happy to do whatever to help.
