Pot luck lunch, games, and whatever at the beach

  • Jul 25, 2013 · 11:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Okay ladies. I have tentatively booked the Pelican Beach Clubhouse for a Gal Pal lunch / get together. I have booked the facility for 3 hours. Part of the time will be used for setting up and putting away tables and chairs and the rest of the time will be for us having fun, sharing a pot luck lunch and doing whatever else we can fit into the allotted time. It will cost about $80.00 to rent the facility for that time so there will be charge to attend this meetup (probably $5.00 depending on how many people sign up.) I will pay the $100 deposit myself.

I already have us on their calendar but won't give them the money until I've had a chance to look at the facility. But feel free to go ahead and sign up for this meetup so I can get an idea of how many might attend.

Who's Bringing What? I decided to put this on a separate page so everyone doesn't keep getting emails everytime I update it. You can see the food list here:

    I'm still eating dessert! And I did not bring home NEARLY enough food. Darn!! Everything was great. Loved meeting everyone. Loved the food. Wish I had some more Mexican salad, deviled eggs, and lots more dessert!! I hope the rest of you are having as much fun making new friends as I am.

    I hate to have to change my RSVP but I just have too much work to get done to take a break right now! Things are really busy with my business and I have a big consulting project right now, plus we are going out of town tomorrow afternoon so I have to do laundry and pack. If someone else can bring an iPod dock or music solution that would be great!

    July 25, 2013

      Thanks Betsy! Unfortunately this isn't a fun one. My husband's family dog from when he was growing up drowned this week. We are going over to Sarasota to try to cheer his mom up :(

      I'm AWFUL with names. I bought some nametags today and some felt pens to write on them. Also a few little pads of paper and pens for people who want to exchange phone numbers and a pad of paper for people to write down meet-up ideas.

    Some of the ladies at bunco were talking of this so Ive decided to take a few hours off work to join you all as it sound like too much fun to miss :).

    Okay. I just updated the food list and tried to put it in a LITTLE bit of order so we can see what we have. We already have tons of food, so be sure and check the list before you go to a lot of trouble or expense to add anything else to the menu. I, for one, will bring some plastic containers to take my hubby a doggy bag and everyone else should probably do the same. Also, I checked the weather and its about the same as it has been for the last few weeks. That might keep us inside rather than out on the deck.

    Does anyone know if there is an oven at the Clubhouse? My dish has to be served hot & if I have no way to heat it up I will have to bring it in one of those dishes with the candles underneath (forgot what they call them) LOL

    Hi ladies. I'm glad to see that more people are signing up for this. I went and checked out the Clubhouse today and I love it but it looked BIG. It made me wonder whether it was really the right location for this meetup but I love the fact that it is right on the beach. I have uploaded some photos for you guys to look at: http://www.meetup.com/SpaceCoast-Gal-Pals/photos/15726642/

    It is way bigger than we need unless we can encourage more of our members to show up, but I still like it. So check out the photos and let me know what you think. I told them I would let them know for sure by Friday whether we want it. They have tables and chairs which we will have to setup ourselves but we could also bring lawn chairs to sit on the deck. Anyway, let me know. I will probably email more of the members individually and see if I can get some more people to come out. Remember, this particular event is women only. Feel free to bring a friend or two but no males and no kids.

      Hi Leslie. I need to collect enough money to cover the cost of the room. I originally said $5.00 per person but it could be less, depending on how many people we end up with.
