Blogcrawl '08!

Okay folks, because of my predicament with Tulsa, I wasn't sure this was going to happen this year. Now that I'm coming home predominantly, it sure the heck is! I'd like to get as many people as possible to join the Blogcrawl this year. The Date is September 20th!

What is the Blogcrawl?

The Blogcrawlis a night that you are supposed to get intoxicated to a level of personal comfort and make comments on blogs. Why? Because I love reading drunken comments. Of course there are some rules with the blog crawl and they go like this:

A) You have to be 21 years old to participate and drink. I donít want some minorís parents coming back and saying I told them to get pissed drunk and go on the Internet. If you are under 21, you may still participate as a designated blogger. If you don't want to drink but still make stupid comments, be my quest!

2) Drink as much as you comfortably feel you should. This is for fun, I donít want to have blog fodder stories involving charcoal slurries and ER visits. Be responsible, especially if you have to drive. Iím saying right now that if you do something stupid and hurt yourself I will make fun of you. I am neither legally, morally nor ethically responsible for anything you do either in the real world or on the Internet. You are all adults and responsible for your own actions.

D) Please attempt to limit the Blog Crawl comments to the hours of 7:00PM September 20 and 7:00 AM CST September 21th. Just so itís easier to track and the time zone differences for all the participants. Not that Iím going to link to every single post that has a comment on it, I just donít want to search for them Sunday to see what everyone said. Oh, and a drunken post on your own blog is perfectly acceptable and encouraged. Same with day after posts.

4) Try to leave a comment on every blog in the Bad Example and Frizzen Sparks family. You may use my side bar as a reference if you donít know who they are. Do not feel limited to these blogs only, go ahead and hit any other blog you would like as well. Oh, and a drunken post on your own blog is perfectly acceptable and encouraged.

The day's activities will start off with the second annual BlogCrawl shooting fest at the Buffalo Range in Ottawa, IL. This is open to anyone that wants to go shooting, even if you don't want to do the rest of the activities. If you are interested in carpooling with me, we'll make arrangements when the time gets closer.

After shooting we can all get together for a Beer Tasting. Taking in some of the lessons I learned from the last event, we'll only be tasting six beers before getting to business. The actual Beer Tasting will be RSVP. You need to let me know if you want to participate in the beer tasting and if you want to supply one of the beers. Please let me know by September 18th. If you want to come and socialize and just hang out, you are more then welcome and you don't need to RSVP.

After the Beer Tasting we will have an open party. In stead of going to a bar, we'll be building a fire and drinking beer here. I have a computer and wireless so we can all comment together for the actual BlogCrawl. Depending on the weather. If it's really crappy we'll be inside.

So come, have fun, lets do it right!

I'll probably participate for the day's social events (assuming folks will still be nice enough to let me handle their firearms), beer tasting, etc - probably won't do the drunk-off-my-ass thing as I have a strong suspicion I'll end up doing an early morning road-trip with family the next morning. LabGirl would probably be interested in tagging along with me for the beer tasting again too, if not for the shooting stuff part (so go ahead and put us both on the beer bringers list please ;) )

Oh, it is on! I have a gun raffle all day - all you can drink and a mortgage burning party in the evening for a friend of mine. I never drink, I should be well and toasted by then.
