Blogtoberfest 2007

It's official! V-man hath decreed it. It's the 4th Annual Blogtoberfest where the Blown-Eyed Blodgers descend on the Chalet Kristy (that for some unknown reason allows us to return every year), in beautiful Helen Georgia for two days of nonstop partying. This is where it all began for the Blown-Eyes.

See V-man terrorize tubers on the 'Hooch.

Drink Chatham Artillery Punch.

See Georgia demonstrate her bullwhip skills.

Eat at the Troll, on the banks of the 'Hooch.

Listen to the awesome guitar playing and singing of the Elderly Brothers (if Jimbo comes, otherwise it's just me).

Watch me try to get down the steps of a cabin after massive quantities of Chatham Artillery Punch.

Enjoy watching a game of half rubber.

Watch drunks push a cripple in a wheelchair.

When is this wondrous event you may ask? Why it is smack dab in the middle of Octoberfest, October 12 and 13 in beautiful Helen Georgia, a faux German town in the North Georgia Mountains. The air will be crisp and the leaves will be turning.

We will be staying at the Chalet Kristy, right on the banks of the 'Hooch. V-Man has already reserved two cabins and four rooms. I made my reservation today. Call the Kristy at 1-877-464-3536. This is smack dab in the middle of Octoberfest and rooms fill up quickly.

Heard at previous meets:

"Who is that asshole with the 'do rag standing in the middle of the river with the broom handle?" - Someone tubing the 'Hooch

"I can make it down those stairs by myself. Ooops! WTF?" - A drunken cripple.

"WTF are you and Dax doing in my room and where is my wife" - Some redheaded dude from Tennessee.

"Here Denny, have some more vodka." - The same redheaded dude, three hours earlier.

"WTF is this tree doing in the bathtub?" - Me.

"Who called the cops and where the fuck did everyone go?" - Some dude from North Carolina who was shooting off fireworks last year.

This is the chance to see Blown-Eyes in their natural element. If the Kristy runs out of rooms, there are other motels nearby. Join us! It's a blast!

Cool!!! We'll be there!

Oh you need that quote from Holder... when she called 'the Chalet' for reservations. Did you hear her say that at breakfast yesterday? It was something about, "Put those folks all together in the back, they really party." She can tell you. I was LMAO.

Bou - That really cracked me up when Holder said that. You should have seen the room I wound up in on the Friday night of the first Helen. It was Eric's but I was too drunk to get to my own room so I crashed there. Georgia left Eric a note to that effect. There were empty booze bottles and full ashtrays. We're noisy and boisterous and they still allow us to come back every year.

Damn, that sounds like a seriously fun time! I swear I'm gonna make it one of these times. I've never been to that part of these great United States, but you all seem like a fun group of folks to hang out with for a few days and party.

I might have to make the drive, though. I wanna bring back some fireworks! Will trade for ammo and/or beer. Heh-heh!

And Vicki promised me that she would show me around her part-'o-town and finally let me buy her a drink. ;)

CD - Vicki was supposed to show up last year but never did.

Do you think there will be fiesty primates?

My vacation-time is burned up for this year, but next year, I'm going to set aside some time to come and shake your hand, Denny. (Us SPF's need to plan ahead, instead of Fly By Night like you SRF's do!) I've met a lot of great folks because of you, and I thank you for that...

Posted by: CharlieDelta on July 17, 2007 12:41 AM

.. see you there, Denny....

Posted by: Eric on July 17, 2007 08:05 AM

My room is booked.

Bring on the Chatham Artillery Punch...and the half-rubber! Nothing like a bunch of drunken blodgers pretending to be athletic.

Posted by: Elisson on July 17, 2007 12:39 PM

Me and sweetthing will be there. I don't want to miss another performance of the Elderly Brothers

I'm working on Porkchop - hopefully I can make it down again this year...

Posted by: Chickie on July 17, 2007 08:33 PM

ARRRRRGH! It's scheduled at the exact same time as the Gunblogger Rendezvous II in Reno, NV.

Just Damn!

Posted by: Rivrdog on July 17, 2007 09:26 PM

Say, do you fellas ever hold any meets out west? If you're ever in southern Nevada, I'd definitely like to make a point of showing up.

(Rivrdog, I just might check out that Gunbloggers' meet in Reno as well. If I can make it up north, I'm there!)

Posted by: F. Jenkins on July 17, 2007 10:04 PM

Oh heck yeah. Now if I can just work out the schedule to get my ass off that weekend...

Posted by: Richard on July 17, 2007 10:24 PM

So far, so good. I may be able to make it this year.

BTW, Where the hell is Helen?

Posted by: Jerry on July 18, 2007 01:10 AM

I'm thinking of possibly driving to this one. From California all the way to Georgia and back. Anyone want to hitch a ride with me somewhere along the way and share the gas??? Let me know....this could be fun.

I need a holding pen for a zombie gator, any ideas? She is partial to Drewerys beer.

F Jenkins - About the furthest the Blown-Eyes roam is Texas. We did Kerrville this year and Austin last year. Those were in the Spring. Don't know yet what Texas (or midpoint between Texas and Jawja) we're planning on next year.

Jerry - Helen is in North Georgia near the headwaters of the Chatahoochie River. In Helen it's little more that a creek. Do a Mapquest or Yahoo Maps on the address of the Chalet Kristy.

Bringin' my guitar.
Fair warning.

Will there be any Shiner Bock there?

Will there be any Shiner Bock?

Posted by: mashby on August 27, 2007 11:03 PM

Matt -Everywhere there are Blown-Eyes, there's Shiner.
