Summer Solstice Celebration

Hey Sports Fans, thought it was time to add some deets to this event. We are still a go but I am changing the time to accommodate the Happy Hour which is from[masked] (I use international time to make you think :)). This Meetup was/is scheduled for 1700 and the HH will be over. I met the new General Manager and while he is more then willing to accommodate he can't extend the HH time. Soooo, I will change the start time by one hour to 1600. If you can arrive sooner, please do and start saving seats. That said, the Manager will save a portion of the deck for us...not all, just a portion. I am fairly certain if everyone who says they are going, shows, we can occupy the entire deck. The manager will save the far left side of the deck, closest to Vashon Island.

Regarding who will be attending, if your plans change please update your RSVP; with this many saying they will be there, Shenanigans will be adding more staff and ordering more supplies to accommodate our numbers. I will be giving the GM a weekly update on our numbers.

I also talked to the GM about having wine tasting; I just threw out $5 for 5-6 wines. He is pondering that and will see what he can do. They have their own Sommelier (Rabbit - that means the guy knows a lot about wine :))

    MMmmmm sunshine, wine & fellow wine-o's... what more could a girl want?! After viewing the posted pics I'd have to say it looks like everyone had fun, ...and I photograph much better with a Poobah on my lap than alone! Thanks for not sending the blackmail bill...

    Hey Grand Poobah, I was worried for a while there, but you really came through with the weather! As I look out at the grey weather this morning, can you please sprinkle some more of your magic dust?
