    Default 22 DAYS TO GO! It's coming! Bigsur's New Year's Day Karma Tradition january 1 2020

    Bigsur's New Years Day Tradition
    8th Year Anniversary!
    Wednesday January 1st 2020
    Official Announcement

    "The Great Smoky Mountains most highly anticipated event of the year is only 22 days away!"
    Wednesday, January 1st 2020 New Years Day
    at Metcalf Bottoms Picnic area in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

    "Yes, the New Year is just around the corner and the passing of another year! Once again I have maintained my youthful appearance and physique while the rest of my friends and cohorts have deteriorated and aged terribly."-Bigsur

    This is the 8th year officially for Big Sur's New Years Day Tradition and I invite everyone to stop by Metcalf Bottoms picnic area off Little River Rd between 12:00 and 4:00 pm Wednesday, January 1st, 2020 New Years Day, throw a line and get your fishing karma on for 2020. This is the very description of unorganized and unsponsored by any group, just fishin fanatics and friends gathering for a minute of casting, telling tall tales, outright lies and recounting the last year's escapades.

    As usual no event would be complete without a competition, and as tradition demands we will be competing for whoever catches the largest fish, uhh...make that any fish! Once again the winner will receive the coveted Herb's Welding Shop hat and braggin rights for a year, where he or she will than have their picture taken in the hat, which we immediately take back cause it's the only hat we have! In addition the winner receives a six pack of Armour's finest Vienna Sausage {DISCLOSURE: Armour denies any affiliation with this event and asks that we change to Hormel Potted Meat]
    "As we speak Duckypaddler is again hard at work in his secret underground lair creating the Big Sur's New Years Day winners 2020 plaque."

    Someone asked what to bring,...if you have never been to
    Bigsur's New Years Day Tradition food is a big part of it. Just like every year in we provide hot dog's on the grill with fixin's, and hot coffee, we bring 10 x 10 pop up canopies for those of a weaker nature to huddle under again! Why even the Mr. Buddy heaters may make an appearance again like last year. We just ask you to bring a side item or dessert to share along with your beverage of choice. We will have multiple grills and some have brought soups and chilli.

    Yeah, I've got you on my calendar. Haven't quite decided exactly which pot of hot steaming goodness I'll whip up this year, but I promise it will warm the cockles of any hearts that need warming! SC

    "No that is not a misspell, the real Stanta Claus has made his annual commitment to bringing a sleigh full of his cooking skills again to "BIGSUR'S NEW YEARS DAY KARMA"! Now a tradition unto himself when Stanta Claus and his Elf started appearing at this annual event with a steaming pot of real Cajun Gumbo or his special homestyle BBQ the whole joint got classed up. Now we use forks and spoons and wipe our mouths on napkins instead of our sleeves, and say thank you after a shot.
    ​Just like the addition of DuckyPaddler's Winners plaque a couple of years ago we got a little more respectable than before but trust me it's still a gathering of rogues and pirates. Some competing for the highly revered 'HERB'S WELDING SHOP" hat, while others cheer them on. Don't miss it!...if you can breath, walk or crawl you are welcome. Bring the family and kids all are invited. RAIN OR SHINE, WE ROLL!

    In reply to last year's winner Chris Turner's kind words on Facebook we want everyone to know that Chris,...sorry you are having to work. This year we have gone all out and in addition the winner will not only have their picture taken in the "Herbs Welding Shop" hat we have spared no expense as the winners 6 pack of Vienna sausage is the smoked version. This has added an additional .50 cents to the winners package!

    Bigsur's New Years Day Tradition
    8th Year Anniversary!
    Wednesday January 1st 2020


    "SOMETIMES YA EAT THE BEAR AND SOMETIMES THE BEAR EATS YOU.....OR JUST MAKE LEMONADE AND EAT!"

    This year was the first ever with no winner, that's right zero caught during the allotted time of competition. Chris Turner's record stays safe for one more year.
    So you do what comes best and eat! We have become famous for the culinary choices with this year being no exception.
    We consoled ourselves with everything from hot dogs and fixins to the more exotic selection of lamb and chickpea stew from Rich & Sue, and taco soup from Stanta Claus and his elfin helper. Starters included appetizers of every description from brie cheese and peach chutney to chips and salsa. A regular smorgasbord of food capped off by a salute of Kentucky's finest libeations.
    It was a beautiful day by the water and for those in attendance gave them guaranteed karma for the New Year and decade. "Thanks to all and see ya on the water!"







    ​"UN ASSEMBLY OF FLY FISHING OR DISCUSSION OF WHAT TO EAT FIRST!"



    "STANTA CLAUS SOON TO BE FAMOUS TACO SOUP WITH CAJUN HEAT"



    "YEP... THAT'S HARRY & DAVID'S KEY LIME CHEESECAKE!"


    "SEE YA NEXT YEAR!"
