    Okay, here is the deal. I am going to be booking a Picnic Shelter for this event in Rotary Park in Red Deer. It is going to cost about $60, but knowing Alberta weather, I would hate to get rained out for this event. If anybody knows somebody who lives in Red Deer and can book this for us, it will be MUCH cheaper - have them contact me by friday to work something out.

    I am also going to be buying and bringing all the main food for this event. This means I will be supplying:

    burgers and buns
    hot dogs and buns
    salads
    all condiments
    drinks
    potato chips and pretzels
    plates/forks/spoons/napkins etc


    So here is what I need from each person who is attending:

    Your choice of main course, your choice of salad, your choice of drink

    Please choose one each from the following lists. If you plan on bringing your own of something, please indicate "none" by the category so I can buy accordingly.

    Main

    Burgers
    Hot Dogs
    Other (specify) NOTE: this is for people with special dietary needs only

    Salads

    Coleslaw
    Macaroni
    Potato

    Drinks

    Cola
    Ginger Ale
    Iced Tea

    Snack

    Chips
    Pretzels



    [blockquote][hl=white]Since I am paying for the shelter and food out of my own pocket, I am going to be operating this BBQ as a "Donations Hoped For" basis. You don't have to pay any certain amount, but I would really appreciate a donation to help cover the costs of food and facility.[/hl][/blockquote]


    I also need people to bring some big bowls for chips as well as I need a few volunteers to cook, as I burn water... ;) We may also need some firewood (can't hurt to bring) and cooking utensils.

    Anything else I have forgotten?

    Same for the wife. Thanks Indy, this is nice of you to front all the supplies but I suppose it is easier for one person to do at the beginning. I'm sure you'll be able to get back all your costs.;-)

    Also, anyone from Calgary that want's to go, I have room for two in my nice comfortable Intrepid.

    If I can make it I'll give you whatever I can spare, Indy.

    I'll try and bring Shanna as well, so that's two more. :)

    As for food, I'll eat anything.

    SHELTER IS BOOKED!!! :)

    The time that was available that day is 11:45am to 1:45pm. So if you get there around 11:30-11:45 that would be great. Weather permitting, we will be able to move out of the shelter when our time is up and move to a picnic area, as they have tables and such available. Even if it is nice out at the time we get there, we can forgo the shelter altogether and just picnic in the sun. The shelter is a "it'll probably rain" contingency plan... :)

    The shelter is in Rotary Park in Red Deer, and should be under the name of "FanForce BBQ"

    Rotary park is located at 43 St & 48 Ave.

    I can bring some wood... if I come.

    I would also prefer a ride (no I need a ride) since gas it too high and I'm living off of what they call 'living allowance' :(

    I can still bring wood if you have a tarp so I don't get bark and splinters all over the inside of your trunk, John.

    Dooks will likely get a ride with me and Veritate, providing we come up. With all the rain, the driving conditions have been really cruddy here. If the roads are as bad on Sunday as they were on Saturday, it will be a risky drive.
