I've been considering hosting a SFFF potluck BBQ at my house in Los Gatos. This would be a general club get-together; a chance to hang out and have a nice afternoon together. I have a BBQ for grilling, a patio area and deck for hanging out and a TV if anyone wanted to throw on a DVD. Please note up front that there are some conditions that must be met for whether or not this can happen. First and foremost, the weather would need to be nice for being outside during the day. My house is small, and it would be too cramped for everyone to squeeze inside the whole time. We'd have to spread out over the patio and deck areas as well for this to work, and hence the weather must be amenable. So even if there is interest, the event will remain tentative until we get closer and have a better idea on what to expect for weather. (Unless there are only half a dozen people planning to come, in which case we'd be ok inside.) And if this fall doesn't work out... there's always next summer, once things warm up again. The second condition would be numbers; even spreading outside, my place still isn't huge. So I'm afraid I would need to limit to regular SFFF members and ask that you not extend the invite to friends-of-friends. The exception to this would be if significant others would like to attend. I'm also limited on parking, so carpooling is encouraged. The weekend under consideration is Oct 17/18 - the weekend after the concert. Our chances are getting dicy on the weather by that point, but this weekend is too soon (and several people are out of town) and the weekend after that is busy. So, please vote in the poll above to let me know if you'd like to attend, and if you have a preference on Sat vs Sun. At this point I'm pretty much gauging interest.
