33 Days and Counting
With only 33 days left to Salado, (March 15th), we have 123 Attendees Pre-registered. Among them, there are 53 Cooks/Cooks Helpers, or 25 Cook Teams.
So we're off to a good start. At this rate we can expect at least 300 Attendees, probably closer to 400. That number is important because I'm telling them to all come hungry. So Cooks... you can plan on a sizable crowd to provide your treats to. And no, you don't have to provide 400 servings of everything you cook. 50 to 100 servings is enough depending on what it is. Besides, by the time some of the Tasters get half way through the many tables offering a snack, they will be full as ticks and happy as clowns.
We have a special treat this year from our Egghead friend from Limerick, Ireland, Roger "IrishRog" Beck. He is 'crossing the pond' to attend his first American Eggfest. And that's not all, after a couple of days at the Chicken Ranch, he plans to cook some genuine Irish Pork Ribs provided by the American distributor out of Jacksonville, Florida. Yes, Roger must be one smooth talking Irishman to talk the company out of some pork ribs. If I recall my catechism classes, Adam was talked out of at least one of his ribs by a smooth-talking Someone in the Garden of Eden a long, long time ago. Could it be that Roger is that good???
And keep in mind, he wants to meet as many Eggheads as possible, see as much of Texas as possible, experience as much of the Salado Eggfest as possible, and have as much fun as possible while he's here. So let's all help make it possible for him go back home with plenty of stories to tell of his Texas Adventure. Maybe he'll like us so much he will visit again next year.
Meanwhile, I have it on good authority (from Roger himself) that he will be wearing a kilt so that he can take advantage of the cool, uplifting Salado breeze. Naturally, I'll be wearing mine, at least part of the time. I'm sure there will be a few others who are brave enough to be Salado Fashionable. If you're not up to wearing a kilt, you can surely wear some Irish Green. Everyone knows Irish Green is a fun color, and it helps keep the snakes away. After all, it is St. Patrick's Day Weekend.
So, if you're either thinking about coming to Salado, or definitely coming to Salado, now's as good'a time as any to Register. And as always, a team (namely me) is standing by to receive and process your registrations. Registering now will save you and us a lot of time later. For sure, those 33 days are clicking off 86,400 seconds at a time until it's time to play.
