I'll go ahead and put some of my ideas for this out there. To me KC has always been known for it's BBQ. So I'd like to see some world famous KC BBQ in the plans somewhere. We can meet at a restaurant or do our own at a lake or park somewhere.

I'm going to contact some companies for some prizes to give away.

Now this is just my idea and is not a rule or written in stone. Your ideas are just as important and please post if you have some.

This poll ends on the 25th and then we can start work on a place for the GTG.

Some more ideas I'd like to kick around. I will have some dash plaques made for this and will have packets for all who attend. Trying to get packet items now and I'd also like to have some prizes to give away at a drawing.

If any of the other CL's or members would like add to this please do. We could even have a design contest for a logo for this event.

Guess it's time for an update. Ken is sending me some goodies. I have others I will contact also. Dash plaques will be easy and I'll get working on those next month.

I'll get a location poll up after the date poll ends tomorrow.

Looks like Saturday October the 7th is the date. Now we need a location. It has been sugested that we go to Gates BBQ. I have never been there but Authur Bryant's was great when I went a few years ago. They say there is very little parking at the old original Bryant's location and I went to the one at the Ameristar Casino. They have TV so the football games will be on. First come and serve on the steating. You go through a line to get your food and they had some really great beer I had never heard of before. I'll call to see if they have a smoking section.


I found this link also: http://www.rbjb.com/rbjb/bbq.htm

Ok so far we have the locations lised below. Any other suggestions?

Gates web site: www.gatesbbq.com These locations have rooms we can reserver. There is no smoking (of cigars ect...) inside the restaurant. They have a full bar for drinks and beer.

Gates Paseo (Listed as 1325 E. Emanuel Clever Rd.)
http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp...y=US&geodiff=1

Gates Main St.
http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp...y=US&geodiff=1

Gates US 40
http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp...y=US&geodiff=1


Arthur Bryants web site: www.arthurbryantsbbq.com This is a cafeteria style place to get your food. They have Blvd. Pale Ale and Budweiser beer. They have a smoking section.


Arthur Bryants Ameristar
http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp...y=US&geodiff=1

I'll run a poll starting next week. I'll count all of the Gates BBG votes as a vote for Gates and we'll try to get the location with most votes. I'll put an other in also.

Last weekend for the poll. Right now it's tied between Arthur Bryants and Gates. So if you have been waiting to vote nows the time. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/52...tion-poll.html

I have stickers, 8 shirts, two books, stickers, tool accessories, video games/computer accessory, stickers, vehicle accessories, Koozies, stickers and some pins. I'll add a few gift certificates and dash plaques. And a few other items if I can.

I'll have packets with goodies for the first 15 trucks that show up. Packets will have a dash plaque for the event, stickers, and other items such as pens, or pins, key chains, koozie ect.... I will also enclose a raffle ticket in the packet for a drawing for the shirts and other items. Additional tickets will be available.

I plan to have the KS. chapter banner set up. Other chapters are welcome to display a banner.

I'm really looking forward to this.

I'm going to change what I posted earlier about the first 15 trucks. We had talked about car or truck pooling to this event so it should be the first 15 FTE members.

Looks to me that Gates won the poll. One vote for Paseo, two for Hwy 40 and one other for 103rd and State Line. I will call tomorrow and see what I can find out. Unless I get others that want to change it to 103rd and State Line Rd. I'll go ahead and make arangements for the Hwy 40 location.

I called Gates on Hwy 40 yesterday and was told I needed to call back today. Seems the person I needed to talk to did not work yesterday and will be in this morning.

I talked with Mrs. King at Gates on Hwy 40 Wednesday. She said the private room is available. It is reserved for us between Noon and 3:00 PM. We can stay inside longer than that if we want but they will open the room up for others after that. She also said we could have a section of the parking lot to park our trucks together and display the banner.

Let me know what you think.
