Fourth of July party and barbeque

  • Jul 4, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • Janice Rinsky's House

My house is 2 blocks from Sugarhouse Park, so let's meet late afternoon, have some drinks, a barbeque, jump on the trampoline, play some ping pong, and walk over to the park about 8:30. Kids and friendly dogs (need to clean up after them) are welcome, but there will be alcohol. For those who want to continue the party later into the night, I'll set up a campfire in my backyard for after the fireworks. Bring your drinks, something for the grill and a dish to share. If you have a folding chair to bring, that would be great as well.

If you have any musical talent for singing/playing around the campfire, please bring your instruments for that after fireworks. I've got some friends who play guitar and sing who are going to break out the music for later in the evening. I have this posted on two meetups, so please only RSVP through one meetup. If you RSVP in two meetups, please change one of them, as I am trying to get a good idea as to how many people to expect. Thanks. :)

      Meg, don't fret, you will receive a warm welcome from all. Just come and expect the best! I live in CH, but am already carpooling with someone or I would have taken you up on the carpool offer.

    July 3, 2014

    • Lindsey

      Hey meg, I'm in the cottonwood heights area if ur still looking to carpool but I do have to work in the morning so I wouldn't be planning on staying too late.. Also was planning on heading out a little late but I could try to make it by 5 if u wanted to be there on time. Lemme know :)

    Hi all, this is kind of random but I know I saw a couple of other vegetarians in some groups, so if anyone else is vegetarian would you let me know and ill bring extra veggie grillers? And for all u meat eaters don't worry I won't freak out if meat touches my veggie burger... I'm not ThAT guy.. ;-)

    I see I cleared the waitlist, but I've made other plans. Have fun and hope to see you all the next time!

    Janice, the two URL's are
    http://www.meetup.com/wasatchhiking/events/189930652/ http://www.meetup.com/Outdoor-Sports/events/189680252/

    Notice the 2 vs. 6 in the 3rd digit from the left.

    Try and cancel one, I have not compared the lists but you may have 120 people who RSVP so maybe even 70 that show up:)

    June 27, 2014

    • Roger

      so the URL thing did not work, however what you really need to do is not ask everyone to RSVP for 1 only, because then you have 120 people, ask them to RSVP for BOTH, because then you have 60.

      June 27, 2014

    • Mark

      Mark

      The url's worked fine - I count 14 duplicates...more if you count the waitlist

      July 3, 2014

  • Janice

    One other thing (hopefully the last) If you play an instrument that you can bring to play/sing around the campfire for after the fireworks, that would be awesome.

    July 2, 2014

  • Janice

    To all the people who are not able to come, or who did get a spot through the other meetup, would you mind changing your RSVP so others on the wait list can get in? Also, people have asked what they can bring. The answer is folding chairs, ice, firewood, and a fun July 4th party spirit. Thanks. :)

    My son decided he wants to go with me to fireworks up here. So I'll see you next time

    July 2, 2014

  • Kevin

    Sounds like some fun. I wouldn't know a single person though

    June 18, 2014

    • Kevin

      Well let's all get to know each other

      June 23, 2014

    • Janice

      No worries. We all start somewhere

      June 26, 2014
