    Hey guys. Since the Southern California fanforces are having a fanforce beach day on August 12, this is where you post what you're bringing, since it is Pot-luck.

    I'll be updating the list as people post, so we don't wind up with 15 sides of potato salad and no plates. :p

    Below is just a guestimation of what people can bring. For things like soda, chips, meat, more than one person bringing something would be great. Either sign up for something, or say you're bringing something else! :)


    NOTE: Since we had several different groups with different policies, we would ask that no alcohol be brought to the event, mostly since the beach we will be having it on does not permit alcohol. :)


    *Location*

    Huntington Beach City Beach
    Corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Beach Blvd.

    Directions:

    I'll bring a package of Polish Sausage and hot dog buns.

    You need to add buns to the list; unless you're on the Atkins diet. ;)

    Don't forget we'll need some tables, and everyone should bring a chair for themselves, or blankets, and all the usually beach stuff. Sunblock, towels, sunglasses etc.

    You people don't realize how much Coke Lowbacca can drink in one day. I bet it is close to his own body weight. I'll bring some meats.

    sweet. You've saved me from buying something I have no room for in my apartment. Introduce yourself to me at the event and I'll grill up a really good piece of carne asada for you.
