Salado - The Movie

It took a while but I finally finished it.

First, let me say that Salado is a great place for a gathering of Eggheads. The people there openly welcomed us and supported us in every way possible. We were even presented a Proclamation by the Mayor. I thnk that may be a first for an Eggfest.

Salado's park along the creek was perfect for us. Mickey had been saying so for some time and he was right.

The Eggheads who came all had a great time, shared some great food and enjoyed great company among old friends and new.

The After Party was just as nice.

There are a lot of people to thank including:

The Village of Salado
Big Green Egg
Paragon Distributing
Keith's Ace Hardware
All Custom Shirts
Bad Byron's Specialty Food Products
BBQ Outfitters
Bone Suckin Sauce
Ceramic Grill Store
Charlotte's of Salado
Fred's Music and BBQ
FrogMats
Inn on The Creek (Host Bed & Breakfast)
Lawn Ranger BBQ Tools
Magnolias of Salado
Richard Florida
Ronnie Stark and the Downtowners Band
Salado Wine Seller
Simply Texas Gourmet Foods
Strawberry Patch
Stubbs BBQ
Super Peel
The Dizzy Pig BBQ Company
The Naked Whiz
Third Eye BBQ
Toyota of Killeen
TranQuil Gardens RV Park
and others who pitched in when asked...


I'm sure there are other names that I don't recall.

But a very special Thanks goes to our own Mickey Rawls who put it all together.

Perhaps you can enjoy the magic again through this video.

I'll start working on the Salado Recipe Collection now. It will be posted on the Salado Egghead Gathering Blog site.

Enjoy...

    No toddy. Just coffee, but I have the NASA live feed going in the corner of my screen.

    I hope all goes well with the mission.

    Thanks.

    The "next" Coop Fest is not even in my dreams yet. With all the other Eggfests (4 in Texas alone), we think we might coast a bit and just go visiting.

    Pretty much all night. Up 'til midnight and back up at 4:00. Wasn't sure of the liftoff time and didn't want to miss it. Still 20 minutes away.

    I'm sure the RV Park opens for business before 9:00 AM. I would if I owned one.

    See you in Athens.

    When I got the news that you were hosting the after party we signed up.
    A few things turned around the middle of last week and we signed up. OK, a freelance check showed up early. :laugh:
    Sounds like it will be a great event.
    See you Friday my friend.
    Thank you,

    Ribs are so hit and miss. Not like ABTs. They are always the best.
    Are you still heading up Thursday?
    Safe travels.

    Thanks.

    As for the after party in Athens, we will just have to wing it unless the hotel is friendly. No problem for Eggheads to "wing it."

    Leroy, your video was fantastic. It really took me back to Salado and the great Eggfest Mickey produced. Love your choice of background music. Thanks for all the work you put into the video. Now we will expect a similar effort for all future eggfests.
