Trailer Upgrade Fundraiser
Trailer upgrade fundraiser
As many of our regular fanclub members know, over the last two seasons we have moved from a Uhaul rental in 2009-10 to our own 16ft trailer in 2011. The 16ft Haulmark is a great trailer and worked well for us, but it was still on the small side. As we look forward to 2012, we want to really take the great party and great food we serve and kick it up a notch. We started the upgrade process with our 6ft long 159,000 btu grill purchase at the end of the 2010 season. For next season, we want to add some equipment that will allow us to prepare and serve some great real deal bbq. We are talking genuine bbq smoking ribs, brisket, and pork butts.
To be able to cook this kind of stuff for the large groups TGJ sees requires an upgrade to a new trailer and some serious smokers. As virtually all of the donations collected on game day go toward the great spread we put out for everyone, all the equipment purchases, including the last trailer we bought, comes out of pocket. The upgrade we are looking to make this time is quite substantial, and frankly, just not something I can absorb all on my own. I figured with all the buzz with “crowd funding” on the internet, it might be a possibility to give that a try to raise the money, offering some fun rewards.
