2nd Anual AMCA BBQ in Red Deer 2012


Our 2nd annual BBQ came on Sept 15, 2012. Some of the Calgary group convoy'ed up at about 10:20 am. When we got there, quite a few members (Edmonton and Calgary) were already there.

Everyone went around and checked out other's cars. Dean and Ken did the usual trading parts, and Keith BBQ'd the food. Everyone pitched in.

We started eating early, and filled up in no time. The plan was, to have lunch, and then have supper after our official meeting. By the time the meeting came, we were all too full to eat again.

AND Then Don won again (we want a re-count), so he sent his wife up...

Thank God somebody else won... I was getting worried there...

Why is everyone staring at me??


All Joking aside, there were several winners of the draw (but Don did rake it in) Keith Butler and Jen won, Steve, the other Keith, Charlene, Kevin, and a few others.


Pam joking around and being funny. She really helped out a lot, but still took time out to be silly.

Is it a baby sitter? is it a cross-walk attendant? is it Gordon Ramsey? NNOOOOO!!! IT'S Super Chef...

Kevin and 'Uncle Rich'
