August 2015 Summer BBQ pics

Recommended Posts

 Well it was a great day for our summer BBQ Meet. It didn't get too hot until later in the day and even towards the end when the sun was shinning there was plenty of cover and nearby benches with overhanging trees. As mentioned before the smoke was not all that bad in the area and we were still able to use the charcoal grill provided by the park. Sasquatch and I ran the grill, thanks Squatch, it helps to have an extra set of eyes and hands when you want to mingle with the crowd. J-Man brought the burgers, dogs, and all the fixins. Emerald had some micro brews and cubed fruits, KKnight had some tasty baked beans, Sasquatch made some good old fashioned corn bread, and other good folks brought chips, salsa, brownies, pineapple, almond asian salad, and then some.

 

For Music J-Man got together some good ole boys that called themselves the Rose City Reefers and they had a whole "playlist" of aquatic related songs for out PNWMAS venue.Very Cool. Although as Emerald mentioned the Clownfish Baptism was different and the final song Dolphin Love was odd the music was all in all pretty decent, had a kinda funk thing going on.

The elusive Sasquatch made an appearance with his squirrel friend, take care of that little guy. Good seeing you there and once again thanks for the cooking assistance and good company.

Catfish got out and made it to the event, good thing too, it is always a good conversation with you and that makes for a pleasant trip especially during long distances\extended events. Hope the alkalinity issue gets solved and if I can help let me know.

Hamstern, my son and camera man, was not too sure what to think of the Dolphin love. Thank you for taking some photos of the meeting, you do not disappoint.

WingedRider it was great meeting you and your wife, sounds like you two have a nice system getting ironed out, just post up a question here on the forum about the controller\monitor and this way you can get some assistance along with any one else who may be having any similar problems. I look forward to chatting with you again in the not too distant future.

Emerald ran the raffle wich had a few goodies such as a zoanthid frag pack, LPS Frag Pack, Golden Basket Gift Certificate, Ocean Revive LED Light, and many other corals. I think the majority of the crowd won something.

It is nice to have an "Official" raffle drum to pull from, and a raffle girl to do the drawings.

Karen! KKnight brought some great baked beans that were so sweet and irresistible that even the wasps couldn't get enough. I might want to get that recipe from you if you don't mind.

All around good times were had I think, lots of conversations between friends and hobbyists alike.

 

Most certainly a good day.
