    It was great and nice meeting everyone. Thanks to those who were willing to teach the games, and run them too. I love that this is a friendly crowd....Thanks to Jason and the other leaders, and I'll see many of you at a future meetup

    Hey Sarah, how did we do fundraising wise?

    July 21, 2013

    • Sarah

      Very well! I haven't counted up a total yet as we planned to have the donation jar out next week during board games at our place since we'll have a slightly different crowd. I'll post an update next week. You guys always impress us with your generosity. :)

    Since this is a BBQ I'm starting a sign-up for food & supplies. If you plan on bringing anything over please respond to this comment so Jason will have a general idea of what to expect. While we generously appreciate all the snacks like veggie trays or chips & dip people bring over to events like this, we're also looking to see if some folks wouldn't mind volunteering to bring over a few liters of pop, plastic ware, napkins and paper plates. Thanks!

      I'll bring some pop, certainly. Is there anything else we need that I should grab on my way over?

      July 20, 2013

    • Jason Q.

      Case of water perhaps... And Miller lite :-) or whatever adult beverage suits your taste

      July 20, 2013

  • Ben R.

    Remember to bring games! We're bringing several but variety is the spice of life. And we need plenty to cover 25 people.

    **PARKING** Please park on the street just outside the house or past the mailbox. This is will keep the neighbor aggro down.

    I was debating bringing either a roast or ribs, but I didn't know if anyone would be interested. I can also bring potato salad if that's a go.

    July 19, 2013

    • Richard M.

      You can never go wrong with ribs my friend!

      July 19, 2013

    • Ben R.

      I will eat the ribs. There will be much rejoicing.

    July 19, 2013

    • Brian C.

      Whole Foods isn't too close to downtown. I don't mind swinging by downtown Wheaton on the way. My cell is[masked] if you'd like to coordinate something.

    • Elizabee J B.

    Hey all, I'll be bringing some veggie food to barbeque, black bean burgers and possibly also italian sausages. Just want to get a rough idea of how many people will want to partake. So far, I have Richard, Kris and myself.

  • Robert A. W.

    I have a table in my CRV

    July 2, 2013

  • Jason Q.

    Could defibately use some more folding chairs and maybe a card table or two. I have a total of 4 tables that can be used to play on. Are there any food allergies out there that I need to know of...if so lease let me know.

    July 2, 2013

    • Sarah

      Ben and I might be able to bring a card table with four folding chairs as long as no one needs to carpool with us. I'll give you a definite answer closer to the 20th.

      July 2, 2013

  • Jason Q.

    You guys can bring whatever games you want...no particular games are planned.

    June 23, 2013

  • Robert A. W.

    I am thinking of going to the BBQ I have some old D&D and Dr Who role playing game also the Dr. Who Monopoly game should I bring them?

    June 22, 2013

  • Paul H

    I have something going that day until 5:00 or so. But if it's all right to come late, I'll be there.

    June 22, 2013

  • Jason Q.

    I'm really looking forward to hosting you guys again...the wine tasting party was alot if fun. We can probably run 4-5 games throughout the house...especially if its nice then we can open up the garage. Perhaps some Kinect sports as well. Some folding chairs may be in order. If anyone has any diet restrictions (vegan or veg) let me know and I'll be more than happy to accomodate.
