Just a reminder that we are hosting the Smokey in the Ozarks, a Central Regional Get Together, on Saturday, June 10, 2017, at our home outside of Neosho, Missouri. This meeting is open to all members regardless of which region you live in. Since we are centrally located, I would love to have members from all regions attend. If you are planning to attend the Western district meeting, you could come to Missouri on your way to Oregon!! We will plan to start our meeting at 9:00.
We will have some fun door prizes, buy and sell tables, as well as give away tables. Everyone is welcome to bring a door prize, and any items you wish to sell, trade, or give away. There will be plenty of time to get reacquainted with all of your Smokey friends that you haven’t seen in a while. We will be cooking burgers for lunch and smoked brisket for dinner, all from Smokey’s BBQ shack.
Since we live ten miles outside of Neosho, and approximately 20 miles from Joplin, I would suggest that you stay in Joplin. They have a great variety of motels and eating establishments, all conveniently located off of I-44. If you need any help picking a motel, let us know, and we will be more than happy to assist. There is only one motel in Neosho that I would recommend, and that would be the Best Western. Once we have a tentative list of attendees, we will be sending out a map of how to get to our home.
Weather permitting, we will be inside, outside by the pool, or in the picnic pavilion. Anyone wishing to swim, feel free to bring a suit.
Should you have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to let us know, since we are new to hosting this meeting! You can contact us at either of the numbers listed below.
Please let us know if you plan on attending so we know how much food to prepare. We certainly are looking forward to hearing from all of our Smokey friends!!! .
