    I love the idea. If we don't have someone in the group I vote to have it catered. Raffle money will pay for it.

    Not to rain on anyone's parade, but something to possibly consider... Pig roasts are extremely aromatic. That means it may well attract visitors. I'm not talking about 4 legged critters. What is the vision that would be in operation in such an event? A donation is requested of the hangers to cover cost. Would visitors be welcomed in as guests or would they be subject to the donation request? I'm not suggesting one is right or wrong. But it is somewhat different than a pot luck picnic kind of thing. It could be important to have every one on the same page.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    ZQ here...You could never rain on anyone's parade! It is always good to consider all aspects. The pig roast would be for the HF's MAHHA group only. PGFST has had several private groups having a pig roast. We would have a sign on the pavilion, so anyone walking by would see it is a private gathering.

    The cost of the roast would be incorporated in with the raffle donation. Again, the cost of having a pig roast will be a big factor in the decision to have one. We probably would not cook any hamburgers, unless there is anyone that didn't want the pork...we could have a count ahead of time, and only cook a small number of hamburgers...and veggie burgers. We could still cook the hotdogs if everyone thought that was a good idea. If the food is as it has been at these MAHHA's...there will be plenty of other food to eat!

    This is still in the planning stages...so any input...positive or negative is very welcome! Thanks!

    So no name tag = No Pork 4U! Easy way to keep track once the food starts being passed out.

    Did I hear right that last year you guys had about 100 people there?

    I would recommend Pork Butts for pulled pork sandwiches, instead of whole hog.
    More even cooking, easy to shred quickly, easier to serve, no carcus to deal with afterward.

    ---- Edit ----
    My numbers were off. These are the updated numbers.
    Here in Ohio a 12-14 lb butts will go for approx $2.09/lb = $27.17 each
    At around 1/3 lb (cooked weight) per person, you'd be able to feed about 20 people with each one.
    So for say 100 people..... 5 butts at $27.17 each = $135.85

    How many people do we expect?
    If you like, I can talk to my butt guy.
    What if the pork were donated.... say by Dream Hammock?

    Good idea....the name tag would be good, but I'm not sure everyone will have a name tag...some might decide to come at the last minute. When the raffle tickets are purchased, if you don't have a name tag, a special tag could be given so the server knows you are part of the MAHHA group. [O]tter is bringing the name tags, maybe he could bring blank ones that could have the name hand written on at the time.

    Testing my memory....I beleive we had about 100 at the 2011 spring MAHHA. Last year we had about 80...I think! Someone correct me if I am wrong...Tim might when he gets home from work! ZQ

    Great suggestion....sure, check with your butt guy!
    Would the Pork Butts cook on site? Hope so...part of the fun!

    Not sure of the number...if we go by previous attendance...80-100

    Would also need a sizable supply of local, clean (poison ivy free) firewood or lots of charcoal.
