edit: who do we pay for fireworks, SHOES? How much?
I'll also be on stand by to bring anything we need as I get close; I usually make multiple calls to drfish while enroute........if nothing is needed, then Ben and I usually make a cash donation, hopefully from cash I get selling the stuff I bring.
If your phone # ends in 38, then I still have it and will call / txt as usual while driving.
One thing I want to mention that we always seem to be light on it: Small tables and chairs
If a few people could bring one extra here and there, we will be all set.
We always seem to have a lot of people standing around, especially while we eat. I drive a small car, but can usually fit a small folding table and some chairs in it. Simple folding chairs and small tables to put the food and drink on will go a long way.
Here is a pic of the type of table and chairs I bring.http://techreport.com/image.x/2011_8_8_ ... inners.jpg
Here is a video of showing whats it like when we are all starting to throw down on the food.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeAgBnBJhGM
It looks like a lot of chairs, but I think we will have more people this year, and not everyone drives in with a bunch of stuff. Those that fly in and others who cant bring furniture
will appreciate those of us who can bring something.
Same cell number.
Yes, SHOES will be taking in the cash for the fireworks. We tried to buy them a few weeks ago but the place closed before we go there (stupid post 4th of July hours). If he hasn't gotten them already we'll get them sometime this week. I think we're up to about $400 between everyone so far but any
additional amount will be spend on more.
If I knew for sure I was coming, I would have got the fireworks wholesale
It would have been really cheap too since the wholesaler I know does not want to sit on his leftover for a whole year after the Fourth. Keep this in mind for the future.
