Farewell to Jackie "The Recruiter" and Dennis' "Inside Out" Porky Roast

Ola Sports Fans,

We have two auspicious occasions to celebrate. The first is Jackie's "The Recruiter" (I assign nicknames, yet I have no idea why she was given this title) farewell Meetup. Jackie has been with us for at least two years. I met her at the Taste of Tacoma two years ago. And most recently and well documented...her part in Walla Walla II; We shall roast her in grand style so that she knows she is making the wrong move to the windy city.  Meanwhile, Brother Dennis has so generously offered up his crib and wanted to make a Meetup to remember. He is ordering a pig for roasting. The size depends on how many RSVP.

The cost for this event will be $15. Dennis is providing a keg (of good) beer and a wine tasting; we now have confirmation on the band - there will be ROCK-N-ROLL so bring your dancing shoes :).  This event will require those who intend to 'attend' to send their payment via PayPal before their RSVP is complete.

Den will have volleyball, croquet, hot tub, pitching contest for golfers (bring your clubs) :)

We need folks who are attending to bring a side dish or desert and LAWN CHAIRS. I am not assigning side dishes and deserts by the letter of you middle name. Totally up to you; meaning, if you everyone brings salsa and chips; veggie platter; chips; peanuts; caviar...that be what we be eating..so be creative...out of the box, eh :)

The address to Dennis' house will be provided at a later date closer to the event.

TTFN,

Grand Poobah.

It's important that you pre-register for this event.  I'm ordering the pig from Caveman Kitchens in Kent, and I will order appropriate to the number of guests we are expecting.  I will keep a list of guests, and if you are not pre-registered, and pre-paid, you will not be able to attend.  Sorry, it's the only reasonable way to handle it.  Thank you for registering :)

- Dennis (Inside Out)

    Ooops, one more item. Pam R. I think you told me that you originally signed up at the $15 dollar range; and for some reason would not let you in or something like that. And you mentioned you had to pay an additional 5$. I see the $15 but not the $5; I sent you a refund of $10. Lisa C...I see you are marked as paid, but I don't see it anywhere? The amount I sent to Dennis, does not incude yours. Can you send me via email your paypal receipt please.

      Steve, After we exchanged emails I was able to get signed up again without paying the extra $5. It must have been your Poobah powers. So, just $10 needs to be refunded. Thanks for taking care of this.

  • Steve D.

    Ok Sports Fans, I have adjusted what you paid and for those who paid the original $15, you will get $10 as a refund. It will take 3-4 days. If you are on the 5th day, let me know. Kelly, John+1, Leroy you paid the adjusted total of $5, so sorry, no refund. Inside Out! You need to establish a PayPal account. I am sending you $80, but you should receive an email from PayPal saying to establish a PayPal account or money will be transferred to the Poobah's beer fund :) Gordon, I believe you are a no-shows. Normally, we don't issue refunds to no-shows; however, you paid the original price of $15 with a +1, so you will be getting $20 back. Poobah

    Can you clarify the 2 occasions here...Is it Jackie leaving and then Dennis is hosting the event? He isnt actually going anywhere too, right? Im just not clear as to what the 2nd occasion is that we are celebrating. Just that Dennis is having a Pork Roast as the 2nd thing? :) Thanks. Im kinda of a nerd when it comes to details and Im a bit lost.

    sounds like fun but that's the old town blues fest which is a must around here. you all have a good time...will miss her, she was a good host

    Hey Sports Fans - I'm making one last change based on guest suggestions. We are going to a potluck menu completely - as in no pulled pork sandwiches. Those of you who've already paid will be reimbursed $10 per RSVP. The cost is $5 - and it covers the keg of beer. Hopefully that will encourage a few more folks to sign up. Again - you will be reimbursed if you paid already - going forward it is $5 each and everyone brings a dish to share. Thanks!

    One question will the sacrificial pig be in a spot where we don't have to view it? Sounds silly but just wondering if it'll be right out in the middle of it all.

    June 14, 2013

    • Carole

      I like that pulls pork idea and ewwww to the brain pickin'.

      June 15, 2013

    • Grace

      Lol@Carole:) I think I recall my ex's co-worker that lives in Roy did it in the ground on his property where he had horses and other livestock. Yeah, I'm not into the "whole" presentation either:)
