I really hope to make it. Hopefully the weather will hold up but it's looking kinda ify. It will also depend on whether or not my truck is fixed by then.. it's been in the shop for one week and counting now :(

How was the turn out last year? How many LCOs from Lawnsite showed up?

All in all there were around 30 people in attendance. Around 8 were from LS and LF. I do expect to have a better turnout from LS and LF this year.

The Second Annual Maryland Cookout and Competition has been postponed until September 6, 2003.

The reason we are postponing it is because of weather. With the incredible amounts of rain this week (1.3" today alone) and rain forecast for tomorrow we felt it best to wait a while. We also called a few people who were going to attend and they said that they would rather use tomorrow to try to clear some of their backlog of work.

You can count on the event being held in September.

September will be much better for me to attend. Thanks for the update Richard and hopefully I will be able to make it this year!
