Wizard have you gone to the idos forum and post there? there are over 20 people who are idos members that live in Az? Maybe you can get some of them and see if you can get a chapter back up and going.

I've never been to a DOG either. Been to many Tear Drop Trailer gatherings that had DO potlucks, though. Thumbs Up

There was an informational event at Cabela's many years ago, before I got bit by the CI bug. Their parking lot may be a good place to host one. I hear they sell a lot of Camp Chef when they have had events such as these. Thumbs Up

I've never been to a DOG either. These events always seem to be on Saturdays, and I work every Saturday.

Have Your own DOG. Someone find a Place & let people know. THats how our club got started. Our club meets the First Sunday of each month 1 pm till 5 pm. 1 person hosts the DOG. They provide all paper plates,napkins,cups,forks & spoons, charcoal & drinks. We use community buildings. We've used My church building 4 times now & they Like Us & We can use it any time we want. Different hosts each time. I'm hosting March DOG & We are having a Theme DOG. All Mexican Food. I have a friend in Phoenix area & I;m trying to get a hold of Him. He does DOGs & Chuck Wagon cooking.

Good idea Wishbone. We don't have anything going on around here either but I thought, "Cook food, they will come". I love the theme idea. Any other pointers for a first time host would be greatly appreciated.

Wizard of the West,
I see that you have Mark's information now, send him an email and he will keep you posted about events in Arizona.

I been to several breakfast DOG's in Mesa and have participated in several cook-off’s in Phoenix and Payson. Would enjoy participating in more DOG’s in the Phoenix area.

Here are some thing’s to think about in hosting a DOG.
1. Need restrooms.
2. Need easy access to cooking area, parking lots are great (tailgating).
3. Need place for serving and eating, Ramada’s are nice.

Now some issues that I have come across or heard about and no I am not trying to be a spoil sport.
1. City parks are hard to use, it is easier to host a large birthday party than to host a DOG at most city parks. If you want to make sure that you have a Ramada, you have to rent it and then when you tell them that it is for a DOG (which you will have to explain to them what it is), they start throwing a lot of additional rules and regulations at you, with additional costs.
2. A few of the city parks can be used if you are willing to teach and serve the general public. Additionally these parks will want to advertise the event, so no telling how many people will attend that you will have to feed.
3. Business have issues with hosting DOG’s or having their parking lots used, because of liability issues and you will have the general public stopping by wanting samples, which gives you another set of problems, everyone cooking will need a permit from the health department and plan on a visit from a health inspector.

Now with that all that said, I might need to have a birthday party and invite a bunch of DO friends to help me celebrate.
