Wow what a great two days. Eggheads came to serve and they stepped up well.

I want to thank my competition partner Chip Long (12 Step) for helping out and letting me stay at his home. Doug Vozza ("Sparky") for bringing his XL and the small to help cook the food.

Ted Kipreos who almost didn't get in. Apparently the Air Force was thinking he was a Greek bearing gifts LOL

Lynn Joseph who kept getting lost hehe..

Kevin Ricks and his lady.. I think he was thinking we were going to play golf... :P

Jim Robertson who by virtue of being Retire Military didn't have any issues getting on post..

The gate had a list, than it didn't have a list, than it did and left Ted's name off it..

Air Force was just jealous of the Marines.

Any rate Sparky has pictures and as soon as he figures out how to get them off the camera I am sure he'll post some.. In the mean time cook something :woohoo:

Thanks Ya'll for a great day..

    Glad to lend a hand Pete. Too bad those badass Marines don't want to deal with a crazy Greek Egger. Seriously, it is great to give back to these fine Americans who defend our freedom daily.

    Pete,

    We were glad to be able to help out. For anyone who has the opportunity to help Celtic Wolf for one of these I highly recommend it. Everyone is so appreciative of the food and the effort. It is a humbling and very gratifying experience.
