It's nice that you guys are discussing how to best help us that won't be there live vicariously through you all at the BBQ, but don't spend more time, effort (and possibly money) than you think it's worth. I'm sure we'll all live if we don't get any pics until a few days after the event. A few regular text updates will be fine. You guys need to enjoy yourselves and not worry so much about the rest of us.
For those that fought for it, freedom has a taste that the protected will never know.

You will all live. But if I see one post on saturday by someone who is not here about where the updates are I'll want to shoot someone.

You knew the date, you had ample notice, maybe and I could be reaching here, YOU SHOULD COME!!

Then you would get the updates in real time. :D :D

Heh :lol:

Fish, are there any supermarkets nearby?

So like, if I wanted to bring something like a veggie tray and potato salad, etc. I could just buy them nearby and bring them directly to the party instead of messing with a cooler?

Ugh... :o

Anyway, all I'm planning on at this point is picking up the cost of the grill and supplying plates/silverware... However if anything gets missed I can run out and get it really fast...

Since BerserkeringBen :) is riding with me, put us down for deserts/sweets.

I don't know if the ride will cause any issues, so i dont want people waiting on food coming with us........sweets, however, can be munched on all day long.

Also, if someone is bringing a few rolls of paper towel, i'll bring the ALWAYS forgotten waterless HAND Cleaners. That and paper towels go a long way towards keeping people from running in and out of the cottage to wash up.

Don't sweat it, I asked so that someone who didn't know what to bring could bring something.

Everyone should PM fish with what they intend to bring and he can update the attendee posting with that info. Then everyone can see it and work from that.

Onions? Gotta have both tomatos and onions for the burgers.

I can get both if you like. I think I'm going to stop at a supermarket in Holland.

Mustard, Ketchup, Lettuce, Onion, Relish, tomatoes. How many onions and tomatoes? I don't eat them, so I have no idea how many is a good number.

I saw it once here at a Trader Joe's. I've been back several times with no luck finding it again. Plus, IIRC PRIME has to drive by Bells on his way there so....

Stiffie is not from Michigan. It's harder to find outside the state.

Kind of like "Old Style" is hard to find here.

Neither do I. But I know people like them. I would say 3-4 Tomatoes, 2-3 onions, 1-2 heads of lettuce. Should be good I would imagine.

I'm taking tomorrow off as well. We'll be driving to St. Joseph's tomorrow and staying tomorrow night there. Then the rest of the way Saturday morning.

I'm really thinking hard about renting a boat on Sunday for a couple hours.

Fish, can my wife's friends stop by for a bit? They live right there.

Sorry, forgot to reply before, sure no problem! :)

Edit: My mom said she's willing to keep an eye on any children that might want to snooze if their parents want to stay late enough to enjoy the sunset and a bonfire. :)

Mmmm, smores

Thu Jul 26, 2007 5:32 pm

Hey, who can I plan on staying late to have a bonfire and smores with?


Hell yeah!

Saturday's weather is supposed to be superb, and I have not made smores on the beach since high school!

Today has been an incredibly long day... Got up at 3:30 to get to the airport on time. Fortunately, I had good seats and small people in the seats next to me... :)
I have nothing more to say about that.

Got your PM... I'll let you know if anything needs to be done that I can't handle... BTW, you asked about doing something tomorrow night... Since Gleek and his crew will be here too maybe we could do something... Gleek will actually be sleeping on the beach Friday night, and I'll be at the cottage then as well, we could start the party early if you want... 8) z-man will be there dropping off food to stash in the fridge so there will be a decent crowd... I'm going to have a long day at work tomorrow but if nothing else we could just hang at the cottage... Thoughts? I'll post in Gleek's forum about the idea...
