    Now that we are only a couple of weeks away I did want to remind some of you of the Rules and Highlights to be aware of.



    Nowka will be bringing the donkey and we only have room for one. - My sister will not be bringing Hers.

    [​IMG]



    Frank Dux will not be coming again this year

    [​IMG]



    Parker will be giving a quick Class Friday evening on How to Kill with a rubber chicken - Last time he put this on the attendance was Epic

    [​IMG]



    Do not invite the lady with that Huge Pussy again - Ron Still Can't Find his Car Keys.

    [​IMG]



    Again this year - You will see Pan Flutes strategically placed throughout the plant - Do Not Touch Them

    [​IMG]



    Kevin Estella will not be there this year to give the Next Session on Filipino Vacuum Cleaner Defensive Tactics

    [​IMG]



    Do not attempt to make a Copy of this knife - It will disrupt the Space-Time Continuum.

    [​IMG]



    Since it is Fall do not let seeing this in the Escanaba River Bother you and For God's Sake don't ask any of the Locals about it.

    [​IMG]



    In Case some of you did not know - The Hotel Shuttle suffered a Blown Crankcase so we will be using alternate transportation between the plant and the hotel

    [​IMG]



    When Going to the Local Market here remember to use the proper name for Bananas. (Local Trailer Park Fire Alarms are in the Background of the Picture)

    [​IMG]



    Do Not put Strange Items in your Carry On Bag - they look at that stuff - We will Issue you some when you get here

    [​IMG]



    We have had the Septic System Fixed since last year so you will not need these this year.

    [​IMG]



    The Rumors are indeed True - Ron LaBella and Mike Grasso Will be doing their Famous Sonata of the "Little Buttercup Song" During the Saturday Evening Banquet.(It is Marvelous with a Sicilian Accent)

    [​IMG]



    If You see this while driving here - Do not Stop and get out of the Car. The Locals Take the Kilted Deer Dance very seriously.

    [​IMG]



    I didn't even want to bring this up considering what happened last year but here it is again - Please heed the warning.

    [​IMG]



    When You see this kind of sign - Stay out unless you have at least a 6 foot Frog Gig with you.

    [​IMG]



    These Signs are meant for the Locals - You can usually ignore them

    [​IMG]



    Mike Grasso has had to cancel the Pony Rides behind the plant for this year - the Little Brown lady that usually leads you around has contracted a local version of Leprosy and is under quarantine until her fingers grow back.

    [​IMG]



    While not Strictly Illegal in Michigan we strongly recommend not brushing any local Fruit Bats with a toothbrush - they tend to not like it.

    [​IMG]



    In lieu of the Complaints we got from the Animal Rights Folks we have to ban Cat shaving from the Event this year.

    [​IMG]



    After What happened at the 2007 JD grind-In we have to keep this Rule in effect. there will be no Triceratops Riding allowed again This year.

    [​IMG]



    This Rule in a Indoor Rule

    [​IMG]



    Ending on a More Positive Note - we are again Able to Offer Free Puppet Parking. Just Follow the Signs.

    [​IMG]


    It will be a real pleasure to see all of you.


    Mike

    I'm beside myself with anticipation

    I hunger to hear the duet of Mike and Ron. Maybe Mike can wear his Kilt and one or more of the locals will dance with him. LMAO

    John,

    He will not be coming this year but when You tried to play that thing last year - it sounded Horrible and we later found two dead raccoons behind the plant that had all their blood coming out their ears.

    It was a huge mess.

    Please don't touch them again. I hate to say this publicly but you do not have a future career in Pan Flute Playing.

    Sorry to dash your hopes on that path.

    (I did want to add that you are well aware of why we had to cancel to scrotum bungee jumping contest from the Escanaba Dam - That was very messy and it was you Idea in the first place)

    Is it true that after the young British fellow that attended last year went home and Fenlored his grandfather's shoulder, you have implemented strict non-Fenloring regulations for this year?

    We shall attempt to do that but it will be difficult without Fenlore here to stop it.

    I am indeed bringing my Kilt and will be wearing it as I BBQ, If you attempt to dance with me without asking politely first you will end up wearing a Bolo as a headdress...

    This:
    this:
    and this :
    are the main reasons I can't make it.


    However this:
    almost changed my mind.

    I will however make a valiant attempt to meet up with those coming through Southern MN on their way through, Thursday evening. I have an apprentice on tap to stand in for me (performing official duties), thus the cat will likely have to stay behind and supervise. I will touch base with the banana-belt ringleader (Mr. tar) to find out the most opportune moment to pounce. No doubt RonL will break my heart again by delaying his arrival until after I have to return to northern regions. That's how he is...; mysterious, aloof, and unavailable.
    all da best,
    rats...
