Nice quiet little resort, eh?

Anyone in charge of the fire yet?

The lure of the campfire was too great.  We left Barber at 3pm or so and took a scenic ride back to Talladega.  Campfire is going, steaks are going on soon, hope the BBQ is good, two people should get to eat free since I pre-paid.

Just rolled into the garage after returning from Barber. Had a great time! Thanks to Allen Chew for putting together the BBQ! It was excellent!

I especially liked the Ace Corner Cafe!

Note to Chew:   Thank you for putting together a good time, updates and food for Barber!
AND it was your first event planning for us too.

I did not know initially that you prepared the food and the Lodge cooked it!
I heard lots of riders compliment you on the food and event-yeah :great:

Let me add my thanks to Allen here for the great COG-B-Q he put together. It's folks like this that make COG special. Here are a few pictures I took at the dinner. Please excuse the poor quality as I was "shooting from the hip":

Made it home back to the land of Oz!  Barry and I had a great time; special thanks to Allen Chew for putting together the BBQ!  It was nice meeting some new folks and also hanging out with some familiar faces.  Thanks again Allen!

Yup.....fun time being with the gang. Allen went above and beyond the call, and we really had too much food, but it was really good what I could stuff in. Weather held up for us nicely, and the fire every night really felt good. We had a successful raffle, with John Owen taking home $115.00. Consumed a few adult beverages, no hiccups or misadventures, all and all a typical "good time had by all" COG event.         Al
