Wow, what an incredible response to the bonfire potluck for this weekend! I hope you are all looking forward to it as much as I am. Let's just hope the weather holds out. Right now they are predicting Saturday to be sunny with a high of 69 and a low of 48. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed!
Let's plan to meet at Shelter #1. This is the one at first entrance to the park if you are coming up from Blue Mounds. According to the online park shelter availability calendar, neither shelter is reserved at Brigham for this Saturday.
In the absence of reservations, the shelters are available on a first come first served basis. Of course, there's always the chance that someone will reserve it between now and Saturday, but I'm taking a gamble and hoping we can get by without paying the $85 fee. There are plenty of picnic tables around the rest of the park, so we will still be able to accommodate our group if someone grabs it ahead of us. There is also a second shelter if my first choice is occupied.
Couple of things...first, thanks to those of you who have said you will bring wood. Sounds like we will have more than enough. Will you be bringing kindling, etc. as well?
Second, can anyone bring charcoal/starter for the grills? There are a number of small grills available at the park for whomever wishes to cook burgers or whatever.
Third, don't forget to bring chairs! There are a lot of picnic tables scattered around the park, but you may find yourself wanting a chair. You will probably also want to remember jackets and/or blankets. It could be chilly up there.
Finally, PLEASE keep your RSVP's up to date. We seem to be getting a lot of no shows lately and it's disappointing to other group members (and me!) to arrive an event expecting a certain number of folks that aren't there.
Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you all Saturday!!
