    I will bring a dessert to share. Hamish would like to come but he has to reschedule something in order to do so - I am waiting to hear if he has been successful. If so, I trust there is room for him?

    Does anyone know what time Sikome closes in the evening?

    June 25, 2014

    • Frank & L.

      Yes, it's 10 pm - last year the wardens were very friendly and they came down and gave us 30 minutes notice that they were locking up so we could use the washroom and get the fire out in plenty of time

      1 · June 26, 2014

  • Frank & L.

    Huge thank you to Darryl for suggesting we stop by Rona to get wood - we have lots now!!!

    1 · June 25, 2014

  • Frank & L.

    It's looking better for tomorrow evening - if it clears out the way it did tonight we will be fine.

    1 · June 25, 2014

  • Frank & L.

    I am monitoring the weather and will let you know if we need to postpone. Hopefully this rain will clear out today!

    June 25, 2014

    • Tom

      There is cook shacks west of there by Macleod Trail entrance if we want to move venue due to weather. Fishcreek LRT is right there as well.

      June 25, 2014

    "Don't Fry Bacon in the Nude" don't know who said it but I have to agree! "I'm bringing a cooler of ice, some cutlery, bowls and a Greek salad to share.

  • Diane J

    Maybe just partially cook burgers etc at home and then just brown the outside on the grill to keep the production line going at top speed? (:D

    1 · June 23, 2014

  • Frank & L.

    Hi, I have capped this to the 45 people who have signed up! Should be a blast. Weather forecast is for sun and 19. I will try to have two fire pits going, plus I will bring a small portable BBQ. It may take a while to get the food cooked for all, so please be patient :) I will be setting up a few tables, one for appetizers, one for desserts and a third for plates, napkins etc. We have one large grill that will cover one of the fire pits, if anyone has a similar grill they can provide for the other pit that would be appreciated.

    1 · June 23, 2014

    • Anne L

      I have a grill I'll bring, not huge but better than nothing.
