I know this was not one of the larger fests, but it was my first, and I had a great time! The weather could have cooperated a little more, as it was a bit cool and windy most of the day. I met lots of people that share my obsession with egging, and also met several new egg owners who seemed very happy with their new rigs.

Doug Ashmore making an announcement. He and his wife Laurel are the owners of Smokn' Buddies and were excellent hosts.

And of course, you don't do anything in Nebraska without including Cornhusker fans.

Here's one with me, Rich and his son Austin. Rich was cooking ribs for the first time on his new LBGE. They came out great!

The rest are general shots of the going's on. I was lucky enough to cook next to Doug's Competition partner John. All in all, it was really a good time. I'll be back again next year!

    Great pics Frank. It looks to be a little chilly there.

    It was! I was lucky enough to have a windbreak, so my area wasn't too bad, but some of the other areas were very chilly!

    I used to live in your area, down in Vail, AZ. Spent 5 years there. I know you'll find this hard to believe, but I'm really happier in a four season climate. I had a really hard time with the heat...just never got used to it.

    Maybe we'll meet at another fest...I'm thinking that Oklahoma is drivable. We'll see!

    There were 23 eggs going, and I would say at least 100 people visited throughout the day. Not bad, considering Norfolk is kinda out of the way. OTOH, it was a nice, relaxing drive, through some very nice little farm towns.
