New Date- Dec 8th Group Hayride and Bonfire!

Only 30 spots available so sign-up today!

Let's do something different and head out to Butler's Orchard in Germantown, MD for a group hayride and bonfire. I did this a few years ago and it was a good time. The initial arrival was pretty chaotic because they have so many groups there at one time but then it will be a pretty relaxing evening. We could potentially carpool from Shady Grove if there's interest.

This is not a halloween hayride, just a relaxing trip around the farm.

For the bonfire I will bring vegan dogs and skewers from the $2 RSVP fund. Anyone have tips for vegan-friendly smores?

Cost - I will take a $2 deposit with your RSVP.  Estimate the cost of the bonfire/hayride to be about $30/person. The more people we get the cheaper it will be. I will let everyone know the exact cost during the last week of October.

I have to prepay so prepayment from members will be required. Please sign up as early as possible so I can calculate the cost per person.

6pm is the earliest possible arrival time. We may be meeting later than this.

Refunds: Payments are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled.

    Thanks for getting back to me so fast. I can meet up with you on Saturday before 3pm. I live in Millersville. What about you?

    Kim, I am so so sorry, but I cannot come to the bonfire, which means you will have to replace that chocolate that was going to pay my way. If we can't do that, it's too late, I will get it to you somehow. My daughter bought me a concert ticket for my birthday which falls on that night. So even though I REALLY want to go to the bonfire, I just can't. Thank you so much and let me know about the chocolate. I can still get it to you if you need it. I know you were counting on me for it and I don't want to let you down and leave you hanging. Thanks and have fun! Eat a smore for me!

    Kim, I really would like to go to this, but I can't pay online! I have kept myself out of debt by not having a credit card and I don't bank with anything but a debit card which won't work online. Is there any way I can get you cash - the day of or even before the event so I can go with you guys??? Please let me know!

    November 21, 2012

    • Kim

      Hi Theresa (and anyone else unable to pay online) - I do need people to pay in advance because I have to pay in advance. If people no-show or cancel I would end up paying for their spots in addition to mine. So there are a few options...pay in cash at the holiday party or by mail. If this doesn't work there is one other option for the first person who claims it - purchase $27 worth of vegan chocolate bars at Trader Joes to bring to the event - I think the first two on the list (under candy and chocolates) were the best size and about $2 each- http://www.traderjoes...­

      November 21, 2012

    • Theresa S.

      Okay, Kim. I'm going to claim that. I'll go to Trader Joe's tomorrow and pick them up. Thank you so much. I'm really excited about getting to finally meet you guys and find some friends who are as committed to veganism as I am.

    I got the best vegan marshmallows and vegan smores at sticky fingers bakery in DC. Im not sure how they make the smores vegan, but as for the marshmallows, we can get them there and they deliver online orders if you're not close.

    November 13, 2012

    • Kim

      Thanks Theresa, I have 4 lbs of marshmallows from the same supplier as sticky fingers (sweet and sara) and 4 boxes of graham crackers from them as well. I'm going to get the chocolate at Trader Joes. Are you coming? We need more people!

      November 14, 2012

  • Chip

    Don't fret Kim... I'll send my payment tonight. Sorry for the delay. I thought that I might have a schedule conflict and that I might not be able to attend.

    November 8, 2012

    • Chip

      I just sent you my payment. I look forward to seeing everyone!

      November 8, 2012

    • Kim

      I did receive yours and someone elses. I will update the paid list next to my rsvp when I get on a computer. New date is December 8.

      November 9, 2012

  • Kim

    All- The hayride is now set for December 8th. We were a couple hundred dollars short so I have to push the date back with the hope that more payments come ink. Of ourse if you paid and cannot make the new date please let me know and you will get a refund.

    I live in NW DC and would definitely be interested in carpooling if it's on the table. Thanks!

      I don't have a car- do you? I'd need a ride... ;)

      November 6, 2012

  • Elizabeth J. Y.

    Hi, Kim, any more updates on this? I'm really looking forward to it! The last hayride I took was in Hungary around 1995--loved it.
    1. Do we need to send more money at this point?
    2. Is there an alternate location in case of inclement weather?
    Thanks again.

    November 3, 2012

    • Kim

      I'm out of town right now and will send an email when I get back mid-week. Unfortunately they do not have an inclement weather policy unless they close. Sevim has a group of about 5 coming so that brings the price down to about $25/person. We were at about $32/person without her group. .

      November 4, 2012

  • Sevim

    Great, I'll try to bring a guest or two

    October 16, 2012

  • Sevim

    Hi Kim, I would've loved to come but I don't have a Paypal account. Let me know if I can pay you other way I live in Centreville

    October 16, 2012

    • Kim

      Sevim,

      October 16, 2012

    • Kim

      Sevim, Sure we can figure it out once we hit about 11 RSVPs you can send me a check or pay at another meetup.

      October 16, 2012

  • Chip

    Hey guys, I can get a bunch of goodies from Sticky Fingers if someone could pick me up in or around DC. I'll be downtown for another function otherwise I'd drive.
