Hi everyone! Time to start getting a count for the Saturday night cookout/potluck dinner. Pedro and I are doing the organizing of the dinner. (Please post to poll if you are pretty sure you can make it because you can’t remove your name later. Of course you can post on the thread that you can’t come but it gets difficult to track after a while.)
So here’s what we know. Dinner will be at 6 PM on Saturday, April 30 at the pavilion where all things hammocky take place during the day. Cost is $10 for dinner and a raffle ticket. The money helps pay for burgers, hotdogs, veggie burgers, buns, plates, plasticware, napkins etc. After expenses, part of the money will be donated to AT Musuem and the rest will go to Hammock Forums! Last year the fall JRB raffle donated over $800 to Hammock Forums. (Hammockers are very generous!) Extra raffle tickets can be purchased if you want. Try to bring exact change because it's difficult to make change if everyone hands us $20 bills.
A potluck wouldn’t be a potluck without people bringing food and drink. Please post what you plan to bring. It helps others decide what the will or won’t bring. MAHHA people have been outstanding with their side dishes! Side dishes have been creative and delicious!! Mmmmmmhhhh. Can’t wait!
I’m listing a few things we’ll need people to volunteer for. I put my name next to the stuff I usually bring. Please post if you can bring any of the other items listed
Drinks – will need multiple volunteers depending on count
Salt and Pepper
Another burger flipper
Large ice chest with ice (someone close by coming in just for dinner??)
Ketchup, Mustard, Relish
Onion & Tomatoes for bugers and dogs
Trash bags – Happy Camper
