    By the way some of you forgot: A green spatula, a black handle pie server and a small corning bowl. Let us know if they are yours and we will figure out how to get them to you.

    It looks like the weather will be nice for the event this weekend. Not too cold and not too hot. Could everyone start posting what they plan on bringing? That way we don't end up with 30 Nacho dishes. We will have a BBQ grill and a stove and oven if anyone plans on bring something that needs to be heated up. Looking forward to meeting all of you.
