    The Globetrotting Pitmaster Club Birthday Hat

    I'm starting a new tradition for the Pitmaster Club. I'll make up the rules as we go but the gist is that we're going to pass a funny hat around and I hope it spans the globe!

    The gist so far:
    1) The Pitmaster Club members will pass around chef hats to wear on their birthday for a photo.
    2) Once member has properly displayed the adornment, on his/her head on his/her day of birth celebrations, he/she will send it to the next club member that wants to participate.
    3) Next member recipient's birthday should be far enough away the hat can be sent using a reasonable shipping method.
    4) Once you've made arrangements (via Private Messaging) with the person you're shipping the hat to, make a post in this thread and we'll update the list below.
    5) The hat pic MUST be posted in this thread, and MUST become your avatar as well (for at least a week or two​​.)
    6) So you have to commit to wearing the hat, on your birthday, taking a photo, sharing it in The Pit, making it your avatar, and then shipping it to the next person brave, or naive, enough to participate.
    7) BONUS POINTS if the photo gives you great, but legal, embarrassment. See my tips and techniques thread for the rules on cashing in bonus points. They can really stack up if you do it right.
    8) International members may participate if they can arrange shipping with the person sending it to them as well as the next recipient, so this will be a case by case basis based on member's desire to participate.

    fuzzydaddy has a 4th hat that he'll ship as needed to handle upcoming birthdays

    Here is the list of folks signed up for the hat.
    2017













    2018








    Mr. Bones tbob4 please edit this post as needed with new member birthdates as they chime in wanting to participate.

        Hey, I'm in! My birthday is on New Year's Eve, so I might beat you to it! Will just have to find a silly hat to wear.

                    Well, if you were to use Breadhead hat, it would be a renewable resource.

                    Then again, there's nothing like a "Panama" for stylish BBQ-ers:

                    Or maybe a "Yosemite Sam"?

                      At work, we have something called "The Ears of Shame" - Mickey Mouse ears that people get to wear when they screw something up big-time. And haven't we all done that with BBQ?

                        We have a couple of hats on board the jet for when the boss feels like that last landing just wasn't good enough. Said pilot has to wear until boss approves latest landing. So much fun!

                        Is it too late to get the turkey hat for December 23? It'll be the big 60.
