Star Wars Empire Pool Party

The last Star Wars Pool Party was a hit. So come back to swim and watch The Empire Strikes Back on the big screen! Its a BYOB potluck with a somewhat functional propane grill for your hamburgers and hot dogs. Bring your lawn/camp chairs, swimsuit and towels.

And remember, May the Force Be With You.

I will provide carrot and celery sticks with dip and condiments, paper plates, napkins, cups and silverware.

Suggested items to bring to the party:

hamburgers and hamburger buns

beverages

chips and dip/salsa

salad

lettuce, tomatoes and onions for the burgers

desert

a dinner dish

snacks

Everyone attending the party needs to bring at least one of the items on the above list. Please post what you are going to bring so we don't have two different people bringing the same item.

    Did anyone happen to find an ankle bracelet in or near the pool? I noticed mine was missing after I got home from the party. It's cream-colored shell with some small polished stone beads. No monetary value, but tons of sentimental value.

      Actually I was there. I will also be at the Jedi party so we can "do" our Force-based rescue plan then. Missed you at the party last night! I vouched for you by bringing a party sized bag of Doritos chips. See you at the next event!
