We are going to mix things up this year for the Xmas herf.  It might not be ideal for everybody but something new to try.  

I will be hosting it at my house this year.  We are looking at Decmember 6-8.  I have hotels within 5 minutes of my house, there is an airport in Appleton (sometimes pricier, 10 minute drive) also Green bay (30 minutes to me) or Milwaukee (1.5 hours).

Friday depending on arrivals and what not I was thinking we could go out for a dinner (fish fry or supper club) otherwise I can cook as well and then Saturday we will have the smoker and grill going and cook up something nice.

I have 2 bathrooms in the house, garage will be the area of smoking, welcome to relax in the house as well but no smoking in the house.  I have a tv and dart board in the garage for things to do, also can keep it warm with a heater.

I would like to try and get a head count to see who is open to making this work.  I know it is sort of a change and moving from Chicago will rule it out for some.  I hope anybody that wants to can figure out a way to make it up.

    ^^^^^^^^^^ LOL?  Also just move the Christmas party to Brads house.  Two birds one stone, conundrum solved.

    On call that weekend so I won't be able to make it.  
    I'm still troubled by what I did for that Klondike bar...

    Well hell, if I can talk Brad into the following weekend can you make it?  Same question Larry.

    Not sure Gena would be able to make it then either. Probably have to count her out this year.

    Very generous offer Brad. Have weekends off now but they generally consist of late Saturday afternoon and Sunday, will see if I can work something out.

    Bumping this up to see if there is interest in doing it. I have no problem if it's 2 people or 20

    I’d love to join but that weekend I’m scheduled Friday and Saturday and the next weekends my anniversary. Sounds like a blast though. :/
  • CalvinAndHoboCalvinAndHobo IowaPosts: 1,561 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Room is booked. I'll get there sometime around 1:00 pm on Saturday most likely.

    Can't make this one but I really would like to make one next year. 
    Now this is not the end of the cigar. It is not even the beginning of the end of the cigar. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning of the cigar.
