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.

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!!!!

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.

This is my favourite. You really need to pace yourself. You can hallucinate if you are not careful. It might be best not to bring this one unless MOJO is well insured!!!!

Gary


Devil Dancer

Founders most complex, most innovative, most feared and yet most revered ale produced. Massive in complexity the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alpha’s used to create this monster. More IBU’s than any brewery has documented, more than you would believe and dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties. Dangerously drinkable and deliciously evil. We dare you to dance with the Devil.

Specs:
13% ABV
200+ IBU’s
Color: Dark mahogany Unfiltered
Cellar: 1 year
Availability: Quarterly (limited production, pre-order only)
Serving temperature: 42 f
Glassware: Bubble glass

So Many Beers..........Such Little Time..........

Just think........We actually should FISH also:hihi: !!!

I'm really thinking this will be a great little "gathering".------I'm sipping a Blue Moon as I type this.:)

A few Questions:

1) Are we looking at big feast meals,every one fending for themselves,......What does everyone prefer??

As I posted earlier,I have two regular full size gas grills,Full kitchen----pots,pans,a stove with an oven,coleman stove----you never know----and enough fire wood to roast a herd of cattle.

2)Are people going to want to tie flys?I can arrange to get some tables set up before the "gathering".This way the stuff can stay out and not have to be moved for meals and what not.

3)For those not familiar with the Muskegon----It is a POWERFULL river,especially when it's running high----common in April.Felt soles help,ALOT!!Should we get a boat count going? I'll probably play host and stay nearby,but everyone traveling any distance to attend should definitely fish.We can work out spotting as needed.

Early April is coming fast!!!!

I have a 1436 Jon boat w/ a motor that I plan to bring, would cover me and one other. Have yet to cast the big sticks in it, probably tricky with 2 people going at the same time. I talked to one other board member that said he is bringing his also. Wasn't planning on bringing tyiing stuff this year, felt I had way too much stuff last year.

Mojo,

You going to be home Thursday and Friday during the day? I will be in the area for work both days and may cruise by.
