Yo Mike, I posted this story almost ten years ago as a reply to one of Ford's posts........
I will never forget our very first time cooking at the AR back in 1989. On Friday night, the team next to us, got mad at their "fireman" who was supposed to pull night duty. When the team captain/head cook woke up in the middle of the night, he found the cooking fires had almost gone out. The fireman who was supposed to be watching the cookers was dead asleep in his lawn chair. Passed out would be a better description as there was a half empty bottle of whiskey by his side as well as several empty beer cans.
So the head cook, after re-stoking the fires decides to punish the passed out night watchman. The head cook got a roll of duct tape and wrapped the tape around the fireman's legs and the chair. Once this was done, each arm of the fireman was wrapped to the arms of the chair.
About daybreak, the fireman woke up because all the beverages he had consumed during the night were ready to come out. He screamed and yelled for someone to cut him loose. Nobody on his team would help him out so I decided to be a good Samaritan, and used a knife to cut him away from his chair. The only reason I helped him out was to shut him up.
So the fireman goes to the Porta-potty to do his business and he is having trouble again. Seems he cannot get his zipper down. Meanwhile his teammates, who are now all awake because of his yelling for someone to cut him out of his chair, are all rolling on the ground laughing as hard as they can. They know why the fireman cannot get his zipper down. The reason was, while he was passed out and after he had been duct taped to his chair, somebody had "Super-glued" the fireman's zipper shut!
The fireman had to use a pair of pliers to get his zipper down. He had to borrow the pliers from me because his teammates once again refused to help him. The fireman damn near wet himself before he finally got the zipper to break loose. Break loose indeed! He BROKE the zipper trying to get his pants down.
This was my very first KCBS contest. I learned a lot that weekend. The most important thing I learned was to make sure if you have night duty, DON'T fall asleep!
Beers and deers to you,
