Alrighty...its that time again to start thinking about the Annual Commonwealth Cantina Cookout. This time around, Randy and I are taking on the task of where and when. We would like at this point to try and decide on a date. The 2 dates on the board that are available are August 2nd and August 9th. Both are Saturdays We are going to be at Nags Head the following 2 Saturdays and then there is Dragon Con the last weekend in August, so it seemed the first 2 weekends would be the best bet. We need to poll which Saturday works better for all. The one with the most votes over the next month will win out We are also going to invite our buddies from Tyrannus as well as Freedom Base if everyone is ok with that? Family, including Kids are invited as we have a huge back yard, a huge playroom for teh kids, Basketball hoop, deck and if it is nice and warm, we can break out the little pool for the kids. We will have outside stuff and inside stuff and of course if it rains we have room in the house. The only thing we dont have is any gaming consoles and if we are to do any games, we can work that our when the time comes. Maybe Tony and I will go for a repeat win with the Star Wars Lego competition. New members, old members, come on out and have a dang good time. And just as last year Tony will get thrown into the playroom with the kiddies. We will be doing some sort of participation meal, as in you'll be bringing something, and we just haven't decided quite yet what that will be. I'll have the basic menu down and ready for sign-ups soon. If you all have any input you'd like to give, any food suggestions, any themes for this year's party, feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Some possible theme ideas rolled over from the last time around are.... Mexican Fiesta Traditional hamburgers and hotdogs Luau... Texas Style... lots of beef! Straight up pot luck and whatever else anyone would like to throw out. If there are any Star Wars themes that we want to work with, let me know. We live in the West End near Innsbrook and 295, and are accessible from Chesterfield and points south and west via 288 and 295, from Fredericksburg and points north via 295. Looking forward to another great party and hoping we have a good turnout.
