The annual pig roast hosted by Tom and Jeannie Schmitz has become one of the regions must-do events. The three major British car enthusiast groups - South Alabama British Car Club, Panhandle British Car Association and the Mardi Gras MGs - get together at the Schmitz home in Lillian, Alabama every summer.
The attendees find lots to do there (besides eat too much) with Tom's extensive collection of British cars, various automotive die cast toys and a Sony Playstation running Gran Turismo 4. There's car related conversation and renewing old acquaintances along with enjoying the waterfront view from Tom and Jeannie's home.
Everyone brings a dish to share and Tom and Jeannie provide the roast pig.
The ever-helpful Ron Wolverton sent along a selection of photos of the event (yours truly was on call at work and couldn't stray quite that far) and I am pleased to post a few here. As you can see, everyone there was all smiles.
Thanks, Tom and Jeannie, for your warm hospitality! Rumor has it that the pig actually sent a thank you note for the invitation, too.
