_____________________________________________________________________________Ok, a lot of ground to cover, lets start with supplies we still need:
A veggie platter or two
Burger toppings besides ketchup and mustard
Bonfire friendly foods (brats, more hot dogs/buns, etc)
~food roasting sticks~
More drinks, soda and waterOther details:
TR BBQ Pre-party: Tomorrow 8/10/12 @ New Holland Brewing
in downtown Holland - for anyone arriving on Friday night we can meet up early. My wife and I will be there at 7:30 and stay for about an hour, obviously you all can come as early and stay as late as you want. I'll be wearing a navy Tech Report shirt and a tan baseball cap with a fish on it. Txt me if you get there and can't find our table.
TR BBQ: The main event! Show up between noon and 1:00 - food around 2:00. Everything else will happen at some point, not even going to try to schedule it, but we'll start the cornhole tournament when everyone from the confirmed list has arrived.
TR BBQ After dark: Saturday after 9:00 down at the beach, we'll have a fire, more eats, and $350+ worth of fireworks!
TR BBQ Walk of Shame: Sunday morning 8/12/12 - for anyone that is staying at the cottage or in town and wants to come back for some reason (forgot your camera or lost keys on the beach, etc) - yard and beach cleanup and maybe some breakfast if anyone feels like cooking. We'll probably be there around 9:00.
Phew... This is gettin' real now! Shoes and I bought the fireworks a couple hours ago, its quite the haul! He'll post a picture soon. We even got 20 of those cool paper balloons
to launch at some point after the crazy fireworks are all gone.
I'm seriously wondering how we are going to top this year's BBQ next year for the big 10 year event. This thing is just getting insane
, I simply can't picture more loot, a bigger raft, a fancier fireworks display, tastier food, or mostly importantly better company than what is lined up this time. Its. Just. Crazy.
If there is any possibility at all that you can jump in your car and drive to Holland before Saturday I highly
recommend you do so.
