Casey Gorman and myself are going again to SWW, this year back to Dallas Texas!

 

 

Not much has changed in the endeavors to acquire your BBH ribbon, but as always follow the directions!

 

 

Using Twitter: (or someone you know can post for you)

 

  • You MUST be in DALLAS and Attending #SWW19 at the time of the picture
  • You need to take a selfie with something bacon RELATED. (yes, you must be IN the photo – it’s a selfie)
  • This can be food, a sign, or a picture with one or both of us. (both gets you bragging rights) Be creative!

 

  • You MUST post on Twitter with #baconbrotherhood and #sww19
  • You MUST also TAG us @CaseyG_FL and @WMASS_SWUG
  • Then find either Casey or myself to collect your ribbon!
  • 2 styles of Ribbons will be available this year again (BUT IN LIMITED QUANTITY AS WE ARE ONLY GIVING OUT WHAT'S LEFT !!!)
    • A few Regular ribbons based on prior years
    • Ribbons honoring Wayne Tiffany that feature his initial “WT”

This year, there are no monetary donations of any kind, instead this will be a more personal gift. I'll be carrying a Journal around for anyone to write a note to the family of Wayne Tiffany. What I'm really looking for are any stories you'd like to share in your own words about Wayne, especially any memories of how you knew him or were helped by him. While talking with his son Josh, and how much everyone donated last year and the wonderful stories that people told me, he remembered one of the names I mentioned from when him and his brother got to attend SWW in Orlando. That led to finding a video of his dad doing a presentation. This journal I hope can be filled up with as many stories we can fit in it and then be gifted to the family. Please help us make this happen!

Casey Gorman has stepped in this year for Ed Gebo.  Ed is launching a campaign around a passion of his and many others of the “hops” variety.   For details on what Ed is up to follow him on Twitter @edsonius

 

Don’t know Casey Gorman?  You should! Casey has been attending SWW since the early days, and was part of the original cast of Bacon Knights when we started. Here is a little about Casey if you are interested, and you should be!

What else is new for SWW18 and BBH?  Beside Casey taking over for Ed, we will again be making donations using the ribbons above.  No shirts this year, those are now collector items.  This will all go to a fund on behalf of someone that was close to us and the community.  ALL donations will go entirely to the Colon Cancer Coalition in memory of Wayne Tiffany. We don’t need to tell you that Wayne meant a great deal to us and he will not be forgotten.  This is one small way to keep him with us always.

Another year has gone by, and the Bacon Brotherhood is trying to bring a little fun, some learning, and a bit of fund raising as well.   Did you go last year to SWW16?  Did you get a ribbon?

 

Come see us Tuesday Morning for our Tips and Tricks from the Bacon Brotherhood session!

 

Here's your RIBBON chance again!   Using Twitter:

 

  • You need to take a selfie with something bacon RELATED. (yes, you must be IN the photo)
  • This can be food, a sign, or a pic with one or both of us.  (both gets you bragging rights)
  • You need to be in LA and Attending SWW17
  • You Must post on Twitter with #BaconBrotherhood and #SWW17
  • You Must also TAG us @Edsonius and @WMass_SWUG
  • Then find either of us to collect your ribbon!

 

What's new for SWW17?   Slightly new logo, with enhanced Baconess on the main logo.   We  will again be making donations to two funds that are close to us and the community.  For every shirt sold $10 per shirt will be split between the American Cancer Society in memory of Wayne Tiffany and the Erica Leafquist Fund (Dana Farber Cancer Institute).   We don’t need to go into details about each, but just know that both stories will touch your heart as they did ours.  The T-shirt website is up now after a few delays, but it will be available until the end of February.

 

If you order by Jan 31st, the shirt may get to you in time for World!  (sorry, for the short notice)

 

Thanks again to everyone for sharing in the fun!!
