MudBugs IX !

For those of you new to our board, this is, as the name suggests, the Ninth Annual Crawfish Boil of B&G.com. Hosted by the Hou-Dats- SETX Chapter of WhoDat Nation.

Just like our tailgates, we've had people come from all over WhoDat Nation:
New Orleans, Lafayette, Houston, San Antonio, and we've even had a B&G member drive from Michigan to be a part of this.

It all started when Hou-Yat, suggested we get together, and do what we do best, win or lose- Party! The first one was at his house, in Humble, TX, as well as the II, V, and VI. III and IV were at my old swamphouse in Old River, TX. Beastmode hosted VII at his home in Kingwood, TX, and Smashmouth Dazzled us all with his home in The Woodlands at MB VIII last year.

BTW, I cant find my pics. See if you guys can come up with a group shot from each one-- dont worry about exes, etc. - personnel changes are normal) I would like to show how ridiculous we are, so get some good ones of our excesses.

The first 2 things we'll need again this year, is Date & Venue.

DATE Obviously, we're going after Easter, planning around Jazzfest, & Mother's Day, I think our best dates are:

April 14
April 21 this would be my pick.
May 19 this is Armed Forces day, if this is a factor for you?
May 26

Since the Hou-Dats are a Cluster-Funk-Ocracy, everyone gets 2 cents.
My vote is April 21. I think this will be peak crawfish production time. It should be reasonably cool, as opposed to May 26. (Remember MudBugs III at my swamphouse, when the sky was cloudless & temp was perfect? - I think that one was in April) This is Amer'ca. You guys jump in and say what you think.

VENUE I'd like to be considered this year to host at my family's ranch in Dayton, TX. Pros: We have massive space, huge parking, multiple options for setup, awesome country view. (I have a very Louisiana-Like spot in mind) (See attached) We're 15 minutes from 2 small towns with hotels, & 30 min. from Humble, TX. I'll spring for a luxury port-a-john trailer for the girls. Cons: Its in the boonies from Houston. An hour from Downtown- (so is the Woodlands, when there's traffic) Excessive rain would be an issue, and we'd have to relocate in that case.

Do we have anyone else, who would like to host? Or anyone who would be
the backup location, if weather nixes the Ranch? This is America. I'm only
suggesting, but I'm happy to do whatever you guys want.

I dont remember what the cost was to attend last year, or how we collected, so Smash and guys, remind me what we've done in past years to fund it. I'll help. of course, whether I host, or someone else does. My only priority is getting us all together again. Post past pictures, Hou-Dats.

Thanks much for the help.
Everything's legal here. (except we cant do fireworks, because of the horses.)
We have plenty of cordage for power source, which is my house.
Also, two options for water, which our Cookers will need.

One thing I want to stress: It wont hurt my feelings, if yall vote another venue, over mine. Im just volunteering, and I
would love doing it here on the Ranch if the group is open to it. Whatever the will of the Group is, is good with me.

I almost scoffed at it like a French King at first then I thought it might be nice to have a portrait of me painted in the countryside.

Re: MudBugs IX !

How about The Boot? It's more centrally located and has the space and facilities needed. It's less work for a host and it makes it easier to manage. Or maybe a park or something.

Re: MudBugs IX !

I'm fine with any location. I would throw mine in the hat again but doing some major renovations right now. What is the boot? Our HOA community center was cheap but it flooded beyond repair. It even had a boat launch..meh. Maybe in a few years.
