My thanks to everyone who attended the big Planking Secrets book
launch event on May 16 at Vancouver's Hamilton Street Grill. What a
great party, enhanced greatly by HSG chef Neil Wyle's hospitality,

beverages from R&B Brewing and Appleton Estate rum.

Thanks also to Johnstone's BBQs & Parts for providing the Weber

Bryan O'Connor for taking the fab photos of the event (see them
