Here is the summary of the Saturday and Sunday activities surrounding the Glle Club Meeting!
Despite a cold and snowy start to the day Saturday allmost all of the folks who planned to attend were able to make it to Owensboro by noon or so. By that time the Sun was shining although it was still only in the teens , temperature-wise.
The folks at the Moonlite welcomed us at about 2:30 pm (early!) to allow for moving some tables and setting up the door prizes etc. Fred Sauceman provided a Certificate of membership for all participants to show they were part of the Glee Club.
The room filled up rapidly after 3PM and folks made the rounds introducing themselves and getting settled. Pat Bosley led small groups on tours of the kitchen area and smokers before and after the meal. He also donated a bunch of Moonlite caps for everyone to share. Thanks Pat for a great visit.
Here are large chunks of Mutton about finished with their time in the smoker.
The Mutton seemed to be a big favorite this week and the new Soft-Serve ice cream is Outstanding!
We got everyone (I hope) into the room to do a round of introductions and thanks for the facility use etc. On the left in the red shirt is 6-Star, in the front in the blue dress shirt is Louis, across the table is PCDiva, In the Purple shirt is Z66Butch, Avalanche Driver is in the left rear, Hubert and Janice are friends of Pov Pete, Then Jill and Fred Sauceman, and finally The Bushies.
Butch and Mrs enjoy some great BBQ
Sundancer discusses the Session with Gail and John (Seafarer)
The Mayor was assisted by 6-Star's helper in delivering the door prizes. People seemed quite happy with the gifts. They ranged from recipe collections, some Panko, Country Bacon, and Fresh made maple syrup.
Apparently something Sundancer said caught the One-Iron family off-guard. They had to grab napkins... Wonder what was said???
Fred Sauceman shows off his doorprize, a compliation of hundreds of recipes from the Roadfood Website. What a great prize...and a labor of love for the recipe collector (6-Star)
On Sunday some of the travelers (Bushies, Mayor and Seafarer's met at Claudia Sanders Chicken Dinner House in Shelbyville to say farewell. As we sat down, in walked Fred and Jill Sauceman, who then joined us for Brunch. Our Brunch included some pretty good Roast Beef, Mrs Sanders Chicken and for me some great Harvard Beets!!
Seafarer had added a bottle of Buffalo Trace
Bourbon to his collection at that point.
As we left we took one last photo to remember the good time had at both meetings. Here we are Sunday afternoon.
Despite the weather at the start is appeared that everyone attending enjoyed themselves. Debbie One-Iron has sent me some photos and I will attempt to get them posted also shortly. We have heard from a number of folks who announced they arrived home safely and that makes this Glee Club Concert a resounding Success.
