Hello Folks. We had a GREAT turn out for the Smoking Weekend! FANTASTIC! And we have grown the "core" group of members. Better still.
Now you have been there, done that and have the T-Shirt!
So! Now you folks have seen what it takes to pull off the "FEAST". Quality paper pates ( folks are standing or eating off their lap ), good plastic cutlery, plastic serving spoons ( which we did not have enough of this year ), bowls, paper towels, black bin bags, tin foil, food handling gloves, serving dishes ( aluminium or plastic ). Condiments! What about S&P? Please bring EVERYTHING you need to cook your food and serve it. As if NOTHING else would be provided. Of course folks will bring extra and the SMALL details might get missed but do try to have what you need. Chairs? Do folks have some? Tables? ( we needed more ). Gazebos? It rained this year.
We are now using the heated serving trays. As we should. I left early Saturday. This was not my year for this ( back now! ); personal problems but we also need to think about clean up. Maybe this year went well, I don't know but after all the fun we also need to pitch in and do the clean up.
This is growing guys. Glad to see it! One or two people should not take on the expense as was pointed at the members meeting. So if all do a bit of planning it should not be a problem. Just some thoughts.
