    I'm going to throw this out again......

    I would be happy to try to organize a GTT "get together", complete with a food cook-off, if enough were interested. However, I cannot do this long distance, so it would have to be within driving distance of me. (Not flying in and getting a rental car to tie up all details!) I mentioned before that I could likely get a location near the Red River, near the TX-OK line at some fairgrounds. The place would have camping facilities. Even mentioned getting the local Deere dealer to come out and set up.

    Anyone wanting to enter the food cook-off could, and everyone else could be judges.

    Last time I mentioned this, it fell flat. I will not spend the time or effort, much less money to reserve the grounds, if there is not a true interest. 3 people said they would like to come, one offering to enter the cook-off. I can't get busy over that. And the timing would need to be Fall, as Spring brings storms the non "Tornado Alley" folks are not going to like, and Summer is too hot.

    So, if we want a consolidated, GTT meet up, I'll get after it and plan for Fall 2016. But if it meets with no better response than my last attempt, someone else can put it together and pick me up and return me to the local airport, and I'll show up for food and fun, but no drinks. And if you are not serious about attending, do not say that you are "In', because I do not want to be left holding the bag if no one shows up, or claims they have to cancel at the last minute. In fact, I might ask for a $50 deposit from everyone offering to attend, that will be refunded if you actually show up.

    And this way, wives, girlfriends, etc. would all be able to attend too, and it could be lots of fun. But it will be work and expense, so who all is "in" now?
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    I'm interested in attending. It all depends on the date. I've got some vacation time I have to burn-up by the end of the year. At this point I've tentatively slated the last week of September and October for vacation along with Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks. I could juggle the September and October weeks though.

    As far as the cook-off is concerned I'd be happy to bring an assortment of Portuguese sausage, cheese, wine and sweetbread. It's always a hit at cookouts and get togethers!!

    Frank, did you see that this is tentatively planned for fall 2016?


    I try to plan ahead, but I'm nowhere near as efficient as you are if you plan that far ahead.

    You can't pay me. Actually it's an Italian thing. That part of me requires me to bring food wherever I go. Last week on my way to Dearborn I dropped off 50# of Chourico, 50# of Linguica (Hot & Mild Portuguese sausage) , 25# of Velho Cheese and a case of Portuguese wine to my daughter in Ohio to distribute among friends of ours.

    I've got a huge cooler that's made plenty of long road trips!!

    Depending on the date next Fall, I'd be interested in attending; and maybe enter the cooking how-ya-call-it. Could also bring some Cajun goodies. You know, Boudin, Hog Cracklins, Smoked Pork and Alligator Sausage.
