Hey Guys,

Time to celebrate the end of summer :( with an epic party at Aaron's house.

There will be yard and house games, food, drink, music and jovial people.

This will be a pot luck style feast, so bring some food and/or drink of your choosing.

If you have any games (both yard and house) that you would like to bring, please feel free.

Parking will be on the street, and at the communal parking across the street at the library.

So come out and party  with us!

Hey you guys!


This is Dee. The above message was from Aaron's. Just FYI. I went over to Aaron's house to check the place and location. So I have a good idea where it is.

 

For those who are asking me for directions. I have no clue where you guys live. I'm using Google Map for the directions. Your starting point will be from the XL center. As for the destination, I did two different destinations [ONE TO AARON'S HOUSE AND THE OTHER IS TO PORTLAND LIBRARY]. The Portland Library has a large parking lot.

If anyone is allergic to an ingredient or is a vegetarian, please let me know. Please change your status if you decide not to go before Friday so I can have an estimate how much to buy for food.

 

That's all I could think of. See you guys on Saturday!

    I am so sorry that I could not come but I was wondering if people would be up for another party sometime around september 6,7,or 8 at my place? I even have a hot tub! I was wondering what date people would prefer?

      Sadly I do not think I would be able to do it another weekend for a while. I am very busy and tend to not have a lot of spare time and it just so happens to be that I could host it that weekend or anytime during the week of Sunday September 1 through Monday September 9.

    in response to Dee's suggestion, I will make an offer to hold meetup part at my house, as long as someone commits to help as an admin to organize... any takers? as soon as someone offers, we will talk, get a date, and make an event :) I have a big house that would be very suitable for such an event.
