Update # 4

With only 55 days until Salado, here's the latest news.

Russ at Keith Ace Hardware (Salado Eggfest Sponsor) came through with some great discounts on Demo Eggs in spite of an increase in prices from Big Green Egg.  Here it is for the 2014 Salado Eggfest:

Large BGE
Large Nest
Platesetter
Lump
Firestarters
$759+ tax

Mini BGE
Mini Nest
$299+ tax

I'm not doing any other sizes but if someone wants another size from my
regular stock I'll discount it 10%.


Let's do 20% off all accessories. Let's pre-order to insure I have it in stock. (added 1-18-14)

Refer to the Demo Egg purchase instructions:  http://demoeggs.blogspot.com/

Update # 3


Okay folks...  Thanksgiving is over and soon it will be Christmas, then the New Year. 

And that's what we need to talk about - The New Year, and more precisely, The Salado Eggfest.  It's only 104 days away.  Yes, we're almost down to two digits, and we all know how fast those go.

So while you're relaxing and enjoying new memories of having family and friends around with all that food, and of everyone smiling and enjoying the moment, why not say, "Hey, I've got an idea.  Let's all meet up again at the Salado Eggfest in March." 

And everyone will say, "Great idea!  Let's do it..."

And you can remind everyone that they have just over 100 days to make the arrangements.

And you can give them the link to the Salado Eggfest site where all their questions are already answered.


And everyone will thank you for your clear-headed thinking.

And you will forever be known as the "Smart One" in the family.

See what good ideas combined with good planning can do...

You're welcome.

See y'all in Salado.

Salado Update 7

The Salado Eggfest for 2013 is over but we made the local paper.  That way it will live on forever.

Take a look at the article and photos.

Salado Update # 6

As of this moment, we have 323 registered attendees, about 50 of whom are registered as Cooks.  Since many of these cooks have cooked at previous Salado Eggfests, we're in for a treat.

Also, it is important to note that only a limited number of plate setters will be available to use with the Demo Eggs during the Eggfest.  So if you need a plate setter, you might consider bringing your own or make arrangements to borrow one at the Eggfest.  Yes, the plate setters do come as part of the Demo Egg Accessory Kit and will be distributed when the new owner receives his Demo Egg at the end of the day.

Also, if you plan to register on-line using the handy cut & paste & email method instead of waiting until you arrive at the Eggfest, please do so no later than 5:00 PM, Wednesday, March 13th.  Judy and I will be preparing our own food, packing and loading all day Thursday so we can depart early on Friday.  Here's the link to the Registration form:

     http://saladoregistration.blogspot.com/

Also, if you had hopes of purchasing a Demo Egg but haven't made the arrangements yet, you may be too late.  Even so, it's worth a try.  Call Russ at Keith Ace Hardware.  Here's the link to the Demo Egg info:

     http://demoeggs.blogspot.com/

This will probably be the last update.  We're down to the wire and everyone is getting EGGcited to get it going.

Be sure to check in at the Check-In Desk when you arrive.  This is where you will receive your pre-printed name badges with your door prize ticket attached.  Just keep the ticket handy for the Door Prize drawings.  You could win some nice prizes including a Mini Big Green Egg.

There will be four Door Prize Drawings in all.  Three are for everyone and the fourth is for Cooks Only.  If we can stick to the schedule, they will be held on the hour starting at 1:00 PM, then 2:00 PM, then 3:00 PM and the Cooks Only Drawing at 4:00 PM.  You must be present to win.

Finally, the Village of Salado has been a wonderful host to our Gathering over the years.  And many of the shops have supported the Eggfest by donating prizes.  While you are there, visit some of the shops and restaurants.  You may find it a very interesting little place to visit.  We sure did.

And be sure to thank Mickey for putting together this fantastic opportunity for us Eggheads to have a really great time.

See you in Salado.
