Celebrating CAP's Smokin' Career

We (Melissa and us) are Grillin' up a Smokin' idea to celebrate Tony Caparella's 22 year Air Force career.  Cap loves to grill almost as much as he loves to fly.  You can find him every weekend on his deck smoking or grilling meats with a beer in his hand. 

What better way to commemorate his awesome career than an epic surprise!  In lieu of a individual retirement gifts (because we all know Cap doesn't need another bottle), we are hoping to raise enough funds to gift Cap with something he would never purchase for himself. 

We would love to surprise him with an XL Green Egg and grilling table upon his return from his formal retirement ceremony on September 15, 2017.  Our plan is to have the "egg" delivered and set up ready to fire up and party.

We have purchased a "manly" apron on which Melissa will paint the names of all grill gifters. 

We have spoken with our local Green Egg supplier and we need a week (Sept 7) to finalize our plans, if possible.

Thank you for considering donating to Cap's retirement gift.  He is absolutely going to LOVE IT!  

Please "keep a lid on it"  (haha) since this is a suprise:)
