Everything was the best from Franks awsome breakfasts to Happy Hour with Dave and Jane at their VIP camper! Don's Jumbalaya was out of this world...mmmmmm. It was fun putting faces to forum names. Thanks go out to the anonymous donor of the breakfast goodies! Looking forward to dancing our shoes off again next year!
Great pictures! I'm hoping Leon and I can attend next year.

Man, all the banter leading up to the rally and the fun of being there.... I am depressed. Guess it is time to plan for next year.

How does everyone feel about a huge cook out dinner each night. A potluck of sorts, just a little planned out so we cover all the bases.

Frank,
That sounds like a plan to me. I guess we can't do it Friday because that is the night for all the free gumbo and crawfish. So maybe Saturday evening?

I am already looking forward to the ninja infiltration of the fairgrounds late Thursday evening. Hopefully we will have better traveling weather next year.

huh. Reviewing this thread, many of the photos are gone. Mine were just bloody shots of Rocky and Fang's head banging. No need to see that again.

Except for this one:

Even after blood, wired teeth, stitches, ER, Dentists, ice, and swelling they still found time to hang together.

Skip,
Great picture. What's a little blood and loose teeth among buddies? Those are the kinds of buddies you want...The ones that will count you among their friends...even after you have inflicted bodily harm on them.

But just to be safe...Next year, let's keep them separated...at least until they get through the gates.

Count us in...

Frank, count us in. We were so happy with the event and had no preconceived notions about what to expect. Breakfast was wonderful and a great treat. A dinner would be awesome.

Chuck just made Jambalaya this week and we reminisced about the festival. Don has the top spot for 'best jambalaya' though. I think we are going to work on some other dishes to perfect so that we can contribute. I have Emeril's cookbook out on the countertop now.

Music was fantastic. Loved just milling around and listening to whichever band we wanted. Great Airstream people and lots of friendship. Awesome.

I'm not crazy about the idea.

I guess I need to hear more.

I just went back and looked at the schedule. http://www.crawfishfest.com/shedule.htm I really want to be where the music is playing on Friday and Saturday night. IHMO, breakfast potlucks may be the right way to go for this kind of gathering.

Next year I am planning on staying until Monday morning. (It won't be hard to talk Donal ["Fang"] into missing school Friday and Monday. Convincing Amanda is whole 'nother kettle of crawfish however.) I think others were talking about doing the same thing.

Leaving on that beautiful Sunday afternoon with the music still playing caused significant depression in the mistral blue camp. That, and all of the traffic we encountered on the way home made for a very long day. I am therefore strongly encouraging people to stay the extra night with us. By doing this, Sunday night becomes a nice opportunity to have a big potluck sendoff dinner.

Any other thoughts/suggestions?

Don,
We're already on board for taking Friday AND Monday off. As for Fang, just tell Amanda it's an educational trip. Where else can you learn about emergency dental procedures and subcutaneous stitches?.

If enough people take off and stay Sunday into Monday we could have a big Sunday evening send off after the last band finishes, which was 7:00 PM this year.

As an aside, some of our S.O.B. camping friends have showed and interest in joining us in 2010. Bringing more campers into the Crawfish Fold as it were.

We are in no matter what. Hoping to extend the weekend on both ends. I thought everything was perfect except I thought the vendors food was a little disappointing. Next year I'll be better prepared for the Saturday dinner thing or whatever we plan.
That weekend felt like the beginning and end of the summer all rolled into one....I was so pumped up...I know where your coming from Frank. Hated leaving early Sunday but we were able to see our son Ben off to a senior prom that night...it was worth the hustle home...we'll make up for that little bit of lost time next year!

p.s. love the pic of the fellas above..buds 4 life

I wish to stay until monday also. I really wanted to stay for the Radiators and was considering leaving after that, but Rocky was swelling up so much we decided to get him in the truck on ice and resting asap.

You make a good point, Blu about the music. I missed a bunch while cooking. I will prepare better for next year.

SO if we do all stay until Monday we could plan the cook out for Sunday.

What I'm trying to say is.

okay, I am totally sold on staying thru monday next year. I also would like to be your host again. Hope you all let me.

I am a guy to try and make everyone happy, so I have a solution for Mistral Blue blues.... we have a later dinner. The music is over so early that we still can do it without keeping anyone up too late. Friday is taken care of by the event. We can do it Saturday and Sunday. All we need to do is prepare a bit in advance and it will be a cake walk. I will make everyone breakfast Saturday, Sunday, and Monday morning.

I also want to compliment everyone on a great happy hour... 1-6 with so many multi course snacks. I think a new bench mark in happy hour was set. Thank you all for your participation.

Let you? I believe we would all be quite disappointed if you didn't. The bestest host ever. I only wish I could've helped more. And want to do much more next year.

Hey guys!!

Ready for next year.

We are open to whatever everybody wants.

So... Here is my vote -- we loved the 5 hour happy hour on Friday and think this is a good idea.

I also think that the idea of a potluck on Satursay sounds good and Sunday sounds GREAT. I hope that everybody plans on staying until Monday.

Of course the breakfast was awesome --

Thanks Frank for getting thinking about next year already.
