Like last year we were under the threat of inclement weather. Fortunately, the thunderstorms held off and we had warmth and even sunshine! People descended to Bowmanville for the fifth year in a row for (once) a true BBQ meal consisting of pulled pork, slaw and pickles. We didn’t keep to our schedule terribly well, but all the things we had planned managed to get done. In the end, the whole point is to get together for fun, food, conversation and smoking — and on all points it was a great success.
A big thanks to Michael Parks who, once again, opened up his home and workshop for the event; to Mike J. for providing the beverages and raffle items; Matt for selling raffle tickets; Smokingpipes.com for the generous tobacco donations and associated swag; John for offering (and providing) rides; Jack for his help as part of the organizing committee and everyone else for coming out and being a part of it!
