June BBQ & Pool Party

  • to
  • Anna Carlsson's House

    To be announced to Yes RSVP's, Wells, ME (map)

    43.321850 -70.590927

  • You'll get an email....
  • Winter is gone, but the spring and early summer are sure changeable. SO WEATHER MY CHANGE DATE.

    ANOTHER DATE CHANGE FROM ACCUWEATHER FORECAST FOR JUNE: THE WARMEST DAY OF THE MONTH WILL BE FRIDAY JUNE 20TH. I HOPE SOME PEOPLE CAN COME.

    The former weekend dates keep changing to NOT good.

    The above ground pool will be in; the Weber and picnic table are set up.

    Whoever came over on 5/24 earned a "ticket" to the start of summer celebration. For them I'll supply the beer, drinks, hamburgers, hot dogs, and other goodies since they helped create my personal summer fun.

    My place is on 2.6 acres. You can be in shade or sun for the afternoon/evening! Weather forecast has dictated this change in date since 6/15  and 6/22 don't look great for an outside event

    For those who don't help on 5/24, it's bring your own meat, BYOB and a favorite side dish or snack.

    If you have them please bring folding tables and people NEED to bring their folding or beach chairs.

    A fire in the natural stone fire pit to keep the bugs away would be great, and Rig did that so maybe some more kindling would be nice to add to the wood that I've piled there. 

    So come on over and sorry about the date changes.

    I have hurt my bad shoulder doing the paver patio outside my French doors so am going to have to put this off until sometime in July. So sorry.

      Sorry to hear that Anna. Hope you give yourself more time to recover, before tackling something so strenuous. Maybe you could have a "patio paver party"!

      A pool and BBQ is no fun in wet cool weather. Talk to the weather gods.

      Since that is my birthday, I'll be at my favorite naturist resort, so I can't make it. Sorry! Later in the Summer, maybe. Let me know if you change the date to one later than June 22nd.

      May 31, 2014

    • Anna

      Well, Happy Birthday! Now the original date looks better. This has been a frustrating start to summer. Working on paver patio today. I've hooked up the filters and pumps and the pool is to the fill line but I don't know what else to do.

    Cant come on that date. Daughter is getting married.

    May 30, 2014

  • Anna

    WEATHER MAY CHANGE THE DATE AGAIN, DARN IT.

    May 23, 2014

  • Anna

    DON'T FORGET: IF YOU HELPED ON 5/24, JUST BRING YOURSELF. IF YOU WERE NOT PART OF THE WORK PARTY, IT'S BRING YOUR OWN MEAT TO BBQ, BYOB, AND BRING A FAVORITE SNACK OR SIDE DISH.
    OH, AND GAMES: BADMINTON SET, ANYONE? OTHER GAMES?

    May 14, 2014

  • Anna

    Great advice, Rick. I'll talk to Dana about a grounded outlet in the garage, which is closest to the pool. I was kind of thinking of the salt/chlorine combination but I know so little. Maybe I should go to the store now.

    I've done three other pools like this. They are a bit of work to take down and assemble each year, but I think worth it. You might have to check your town ordinance on above ground pools. Requires plugging into a grounded outlet (like you have around sinks and tubs). You may want to hire an electrician to run an underground line to the pool area, if it's far from the house. The pump system usually has a short cord. Also, you'll want to read up on chlorination and PH balance and pool maintenance practices. Hope you don't get discouraged by all this! Rick

    I've assembled pools like this before. Sounds like a fun time! When is your "assembly" party?

      May 18th, 2pm sounds perfect. Gives it two weeks to warm up under a solar cover. You do have a level spot? Or will that be the first challenge? Rick

    Or should I have the official christening on the first official day of summer on 6/21???

    April 7, 2014

  • Anna

    OK, for some reason the questions aren't popping up when you RSVP so here they are: have you done this before? when is most convenient for you? Add questions that you think would help....
