    Thanks everyone for coming out, the weather was nice and those who came had a fun time playing ultimate, soccer, badminton and Rock Paper Scissors Team edition!

    It was too bad 80 people (60%) were-no shows. We still have 80+ hotdogs/burgers in the cooler that went to waste. Please cancel your RSVP you cannot come in the future, there were 30 people waitlisted who could've come by.

      Too bad I had to work and wasn't able to attend. It sucks to hear that there were so many no-shows. Something needs to be done about the NS. Ed and the other organizers spend lots of time to plan these events.

  • Yujin

    hi Ed! I can only join you guys after 3pm if I get lucky to find a parking. Since there are a lot of ppl on the waiting list I have some guilty feelings:-) Why don't you let some more ppl in for this kind situation. I'm pretty sure some ppl will show up late.

    June 7, 2013

    • Mako

      I totally agree with Yujin as well. I know 2 other people are coming late so the RSVPS may not need to be capped.

    it is IMPARITIVE that you list All ingreadients on a card or paper and bring it WITH YOUR DISH. it MUST be listed visibly for the BBQ.

  • Tammy S

    I hereby declare a butter chicken throw down. =)
    If you can do better?. ..bring it! you have another dish the can top it? A favorite dish connected to your heritage? . .. it let's have it! Come on people it's time to step up.I heard a lot of talk. I'm going to bring my Coleman camp stove it has two burners. I'm bringing it to cook the rice and warm the chicken. anyone is welcome to borrow it. (but a couple more might be good if anyone else has one)

    Let's make this worthwhile for everybody! if at all possible bring food not money the more people to bring food the more we have to go around.
    :) imho

    1 · May 27, 2013

    • Tammy S

      You're right. It's an impossible lack of a plan. Addison has one and there will be lots of heat to go around. I will not bring the old camp stove :) If that's ok?

      June 3, 2013

    • Ed

      You're bring a dish already so don't overload yourself. Addison and Ivy will be bringing a grill (Steven can bring one too) so we have 3 grills. I'll be bringing over 100 burgers and hotdogs. The BBQ is gonna be LEGEN-waitforit-DARY, Legendary!
