    Being just a little pig and not a hog, I don't know if my vote counts, but after seeing his answers to the spontaneous entrance exam he was given, I'd say he is certainly worth the title of Pellet Pig.

    Ok, I see you know where to find pellets and you have a stove, now please tell us what would convince the hogs that you would be a credit to the Honorable Order of Pellet Pigs. The hogs are not that easy to convince as they want to uphold the highest standards and provide a proper example for the general public.

    I take that as an appropriate second of the nomination.

    Once your a Pig, your vote means something. YOU are a part of the club.. So like Smokey, I see it fit as a second notion.
    And I will 3rd the notion for Eric.

    As for Veedo, Welcome to the Forums. As Smokey said, we need more details. And pics never hurt. This is just a little stash in the basement. Still a lot in the garage (about 4 ton). With about 4 ton in the basement. Keepin my options open;)

    Well veedo, I tried to have the hogs wait a bit more but they were running around grunting, squealing, and slurping the contents of the administrative supplies closet at Kinsman Stoves and otherwise getting polluted. Before they got that way they decided that ericofmaine would be admitted to the club, veedo there will likely be another meeting tomorrow evening so by all means answer the essay interview question and we can take it from there.

    ericofmaine please add the following to your signature:

    About your signature Eric.

    That think green and beer do not go together you see the brewing of the beer liberates CO2 and CO2 is a big greenie no no.

    I can't justify being a pellet pig. I get my pellets from a lumberyard about ten miles away, they always have many tons of Clean Burn pellets on hand, year round, for $199 a ton.

    When I get low, I go get another ton. I do cash and carry my pellets with my Ford F350.

    Looks like some piggy wanna bes are trying to get membership. First get your nominations and then tell us why you'd be a credit to the club.

    We need to see tonnage, how you got it, how many grandmas were run over in the process, did you get them prior to first frost (which first frost we don't care).

    Come on now shape up. It is very hard to keep the hogs on task this time of the year they are more interested in liquid refreshments known to be in the administrative supply closet.

    The meeting has been called for 9:00 PM Eastern, only completed applications with nominations will be considered.

    Dexter gets to hold the meeting and announce the new pigs (I haven't recovered from the last meeting).

    Meeting is about to be in session.

    Any other comments from Veedo, yulanchief, and quickrch?

    All things noted above will be considered, but any added info will help with the nominations into the Club!

    Us Pigs are fueling up and will be ready shortly for said meeting ;)
