Organization, or any form of the word is a far stretch for me. Just go to Mojo's April 8-9th, good drink, good smokes, fire, malts, big stories, etc.

And Sean, if you have any of that barrel of Sierra Nevada Seasonal left, bring it.

Two handed rods, swung flies, bird dogs and the 45th parallel. That's my happy place.

Sorry bro, I was off Thur. and Fri. last week. Have to maintain my obligations this week. I will be hitting the R_g_e this week after work. I do plan to start hitting the lower Mo after work everyday here soon, the days are a gettin' longer.

I think I will be sportin' a few cases of Seirra Nevada at Mojes place, maybe some Founders, depends if I can make it into the big city in the days before it all goes down.

I think we met briefly at the last clave. About the camping, bring a tent and a sleeping bag.

Starting to look like we might have quite the crowd up there, bound to be a good time.

If everybody planning to go can drop me an email at [email protected], I will compile a mailing list and send out a mass mail w/ directions a couple weeks before it happens. Please title the email "mojo".

My plan is to leave from work and get up there about 4:30pm or so on Friday.

I got a request about a grill, if anybody has another one, it may help.

hey,

I plan to be there. I can bring a 20+ gallon crock pot i got from bushia. this can cook up 20+ pounds of keilbasa and kapusta. it'll give you gas for the whole weekend if you wash it down with stroh's! lol. i can get with dave delski (s.w. side) or franks (n.w. side) or st. isadore's benevolent society (n.e. side) for the sausage. btw, all of these guys make primo keilbasa! all you polska folks know what i mean!!! i need to know the head count. figure $5 per person for all the gas you can conjure up during the evening! i'm not sure but maybe i can talk benny or eddie into bringin up the accordian for some music. we would need to bribe these guys big time! they are true musicians!!!!

ok, i'm out

Talking Details.........Details........

I'm glad to see some interest in our April festivities!!!! Heron,I need your autograph on a magazine cover I have.......

I have two full size regular gas grill here------still using gas that Rambo and others so kindly bought last year in one of them!!!I think we have grills covered,unless someone insists on charcoal that is.

There is a complete kitchen here,so really only bring what you think you'll need----MEGA crocks or whatever.
Tents are only needed for those that don't want to sleep inside......Plenty of floor space,couches........I'm not guaranteeing a bed to anyone but my self.If you would like to sleep inside,please bring your own sleeping bag and pillow.NO AXE MURDERERS PLEASE!!! !!! Early April tenting is unpredictable....house is warm and dry.......I know what I'd do.

Any questions.........just ask.

Cool Things are shaping up...

It looks like things are shaping up. Hopefully I can save some of this Pyramid Snow Cap that I drinking right now for you boys...but don't bet on it!
Jamey, give me a shout when you get a firm ###, so I can factor the Shorts.http://shortsbrewing.com. Those Polish guys can drink all of the Stroh's, us Celtic folk will be drinking hoppy ales!!! If you guys bring up some accordian players, we might have to counter with the bagpipes...
I am fishing the PM in the am...gotta go.

Heron,

BEK knows how to get there, he can navigate. You and Kalinka (VDF) will get along great.

John,

Looking to be about 15 or so, so far, its early. I'll probably spring for a few jugs of Founders, in a variety of colors. I'll give you a shout sometime soon, down w/ disease right now, not feeling all that social.

I am looking forward to being there. I am going to be fishing the PM or BM on March 26 and 27th. I hope I will have good stories to tell.

Jamey, since I will be coming from the "Big City", if there is anything you want me to bring, just let me know.

Blue Moon.???????

Does Founders or Shorts make anything close to Blue Moon-----My All-Time favorite beer?

I'm told by an actual beer judge that I work with it's a Belgian whit style beer.

This guy LOOKS like a beer judge(350++lbs.!!!)So he's quite experienced at "tasting" beer.

Just wondering what the options are.....let me know about cost.
