    Followup : 2003 Taconics BBQ

    As usual, the bbq seems to be over quicker than it began. I got there a little before 10am and the place was packed with equipment. The fog that had covered the area before was lifting off and it turned out to be as nice of a day as it was two years ago.

    There were a lot of vendors, every major brand of plow was there along with some spreaders, caterpillar equipment, downester spreaders, st jacques enterprises and more. I met wxmn6, cardoctor, prosnow , snowplowjay, ct18fireman, john dimartino, chuck smith and his wife, alan and his wife, brimow525, Pelican, 99SDPSD and our host, Taconic and i'm sure there's others i forgot.



    My digital camera died half way through the show, so i'm going to compile a photo album with some other photos from plowsite members. Click on the link in my signature, and it will be the first photo album on the top.



    It was a great time, lots of laughs, and i hope to see everyone next year!



    Thanks again John Parker/ aka Taconic for hosting this event.

    Wow, what a great turnout! The weather have been cooperating all day, much better than last year! Alot of equipment on display, and alot of great Plowsite people. I met so many members that I lost tracking of. Met Jerre Heyer, Chuck and his wife Chris, Bryan (snow), Cardoctor, Pelican, SnowplowJay, Mick, Got Grass, Sonjaab, John Parker, ProSno, Brimow525, John DiMartino, JCurtis, Alan, and everyone else that I did not remember to mention. :waving:

    Saw a bunch of nice equipment on display and I will be posting pictures of them. I probably took pics of nearly every equipment that was there, but will post just some of them to allow some of you to post your own pics, just to be on fair side. ;)

    It was definitely a wonderful event and I, without a doubt, would be going there again next year! :D :nod:

    Thanks again John for hosting this great event! It would not have be possible without you, and Bryan (snow).

    Once again a big THANK YOU to John Parker and all the fine people at Taconic Maintenance for another wonderful snowplow BBQ.

    I just thought I would rush home and post a few of the many pics that were taken... ( I saw a whole mess of PLowsite guys and gals up there today) and a bunch of them had digital cameras, so there should be a whole s*** load of pics.:cool:

    See what I mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:eek:

    Yeah Mike, I told you several times that you really should have come, and that you would miss alot of stuff if you didn't come. Oh well, there always will be next year so you better come the next time! ;)

    Pics are coming up. I will be posting a few of them here, but Byran (snow) will have a photo album created after I sent him a batch of pics that I took, so you can view it from there. :)
