Summer Geek Bash!

  • Aug 18, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Activities:  Let's have a Geek summer bash!  Any suggestions for activities are welcome.  Do you want to have an epic Super Soaker slash Nerf gun battle?  Frisbee?  Trivia games?  Badminton? Water balloons?  I have a large-ish yard, around half an acre of open grass.  If it rains, we can play games inside and watch a movie.

 

Food:  There will definitely be lots of food involved.  I will provide hot dogs, hamburgers, and watermelon, and we can fill in with sides, desserts, and assorted geeky foods.  If the weather cooperates, we can also do a fire pit with s'mores.  If anyone has any special requests (vegetarian, gluten free, etc.) just comment below.

 

Parking:  There is plenty of parking at the dentist's office beside my house.

 

Directions:  Take exit 227 on I-81 and head toward Rt. 11.  About a mile after the exit you will see Burger King.  Continue straight onto Quicks Mill Rd past Burger King for about 1/10th of a mile.  Look for the two story grey house on the left with a stone wall just past the dentist.

    okay so what time is everyone planning on getting together?

    • Wes D.

      Fearless Leader indicated 4. I suspect any time before 4 would catch her running around cleaning things and trying to baby-proof her back yard... which would be hilarious, but rude.

      2 · August 17, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      Ha ha, you would be exactly right! It's from 4:00 until whenever, so feel free to come and go as you wish.

    I will bring potato salad if no one else is. Haven't decided what else yet.

    1 · August 18, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      Thanks, Stacey! I have heard macaroni salad, but no potato salad yet.

    Official weather announcement: The picnic is ON, despite the fact that it's raining now. It is supposed to clear up significantly by this afternoon, and if not I'm willing to risk having to stuff 20 people in my living room. Just in case we have to move activities inside or to the porch, those with favorite videos or board games are welcome to bring them as a backup.

    1 · August 18, 2013

  • Wes D.

    Andrea: smoked pulled chicken with Wes' Awful Sauce or something more side-y?

    1 · August 16, 2013

    • Wes D.

      Well... since you're hosting, do you like sweet or vinegar sauces?

      1 · August 16, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      Either one sounds great!

      August 17, 2013

  • Ana C.

    What can I bring other than wAter balloons??

    2 · August 13, 2013

  • Elizabeth S.

    Will hope for good weather and bring veggie burgers and a side.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to make this awesome event. I will be going to Gen Con this weekend for the first time.

    1 · July 11, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      Have fun! Gen Con sounds fantastic.

      1 · July 28, 2013

      Have a great trip and take photos!

    Is this a rain or shine event? Weather looks kinda crummy for Sunday. :( (There's still time for it to improve, though! *fingers crossed*)

    1 · August 14, 2013

    • Derek M.

      I specifically asked for Sunday off from work for this event, so it figures that rain is in the forecast. Grrrrr. I'm still holding out hope though that the weather will be OK enough and your geek bash can proceed as planned! (Will be on the lookout for your final call Sunday morning)

      1 · August 16, 2013

    • JoelWB

      I am willing to come rain or shine.

      1 · August 16, 2013

  • JoelWB

    I'll bring crackers, hummus, cheeses, pepperoni/salami.

    1 · August 14, 2013

  • Wes D.

    Trying to make it, though I probably won't have any water or nerf guns in tow...

    1 · August 14, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      That just leaves you defenseless and open for target practice :)

      2 · August 15, 2013

  • Mack C

    scheduled to work that day, might come by in the evening if people are still around and I'm not completely zapped.

    1 · August 14, 2013

    Sorry - it's my niece's birthday.

    August 12, 2013

  • Libby B.

    My working weekend so most likely no, I'm afraid.

    1 · August 11, 2013

  • Derek M.

    Megan and I are in and looking forward to it! :)

    1 · August 12, 2013

  • John

    okay so are we still looking to have a water gun battle?

    1 · July 11, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      Absolutely! I was going to say bring all your weaponry, but that might be dangerous to say to an SCA person. We will have a nerf gun slash water gun slash water balloon free for all.

      1 · July 28, 2013

  • Andrea N.

    Hey guys - Just a heads up, I need to move this to August because of my travel schedule for work. This just gives us more time to plan world domination!

    1 · July 6, 2013

    • John

      HAHA!!!! PERFECT!!! I am THERE!!

      1 · July 7, 2013

  • Lisa A.

    Maybe plus two ..Wanda for sure and maybe Ron if there is not a race !

    I can always bring a selection of fun board games and my light saber to deflect any stray nerf fire.

    1 · June 24, 2013

  • Roberta W.

    Teresa just got some inflatable batting batons (?, not sure what to call them, but they're very large). Fun for pretend battle! :) So I'm saying I'll be there, unless something comes up.

    1 · June 24, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      That sounds so fantastic!

      June 24, 2013

  • Lisa A.

    I really want to come Andrea ..you know how my schedule is from week to week so I will have to let you know a "for sure" a little closer to time but for now I am saying yes and I may bring Wanda too !

    1 · June 22, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      Yay! Ron is welcome to come, too! (Just tell him there will be food)

      1 · June 22, 2013

  • Emily G.

    I'll just have to "borrow" the boyfrahn's modified nerf gun to this ^_^

    1 · June 22, 2013

  • Mack C

    I'm scheduled to work that day, but if we're not running or I get off early, I'll try to make it.

    Darn I wish this was on the 14 or the 4 :( I will be at Pennsic July 19-Aug 2... maybe next time I guess

    1 · June 16, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      That's okay - I'm going to try to do one of these every two or three months. The fall one will probably be in September or October while it is still nice enough to be outside.

      June 17, 2013

  • JoelWB

    As we get closer, let me know if there is anything specific you want me to bring, food-wise. Otherwise I will come up with something and post it here within the upcoming weeks.
