Cookout ***The most anticipated event of the year! **

Ok Family, many of you may remember we used to do an annual cookout many years ago. Well, due to popular demand, we are going to bring it back this year. This event requires lots of resources and planning, so this event is limited to the first 200 paid participants. Also due to the fact that we are having it catered and having to rent the venue, we are not able to offer any refunds if your plans change. This event is rain or shine, the shelter is outdoors but it is covered. Food, tea, water, lemonade and dessert will be provided. Music will be provided. Bring any games you would like to play (card games, taboo, etc). It is outside, we can also have active games. We have invited another meetup (Line Dance Fever and Fitness), so you can count on some line dancing going down as well. Kids 5 and over are welcomed, must also pay. 

The price per person for this event is $10.59 (includes paypal fee). This fee must be prepaid via paypal. Check the pay online box when you RSVP. Note in the comment section if your payment includes anyone other than yourself. Remember this fee is non-refundable (unless the event is cancelled).  

Food provided by caterer: bbq pork and turkey, fried chicken, green beans and boiled potatoes, hushpuppies, tea, lemonade. Items provided by planners: dessert and water.

We are planning to serve the food before 2pm, so come early while it's hot!

There are two grills available at the shelter, we do not plan to use them since the event is catered. However, it is available for paid participants to use if you would like to use it (at your expense). 

Alcohol is strictly prohibited. 

There is a huge grassy field next to the shelter. We are working to arrange a good ole fashion game of kickball for adults so come dressed appropriately if you plan to play. 

Limited parking- parking next to the shelter is limited to about 55 spaces. Additional parking is available just over the bridge at the Neuse trail (about 100 spaces). Please carpool if  you can. Additional parking up the road at Food Lion. 

Restrooms are also available. 

Any questions feel free to post a comment or reach out to Cali, Esta, or Tene directly.

Excited! Let's have some fun!

    Here are a couple of updates: 1. We do not have enough funds to hire a DJ due to less than expected participation. We will be playing music from Ipod/Iphone. 2. Food will be served until 2:30, then we will allow folks to get seconds if anything is left. So be there before 2:30 to ensure you get some food. 3. Don't forget to bring games. We will have Taboo, playing cards, and kickball.

    Hi All,

    Just wanted to remind everyone that today is the last day to get $10 tickets for the annual cookout. The price increases to $15 tomorrow. You are still able to pay online via Paypal today. If you prefer to pay cash, there are two opportunities today to pay with cash.

    1. Meet Rykae at the Starbucks on Davis Drive in Morrisville between 4:30pm - 6:00pm. 2. Meet Cali at Buffalo Lanes (Raleigh) for tonight's bowling event 10:45pm-1am

    Please bring exact change. Questions, contact Cali[masked]

    BTW, for the Football Diehards like me, I am planning to bring a TV so that games broadcasted on network channels can be watched during the cookout. So now, you have nothing to hold you back from attending! :-)

  • Esta

    If anyone planned to purchase tickets from me today, please send me a private message thru Meetup before 5pm, so that I can plan to meet with you at Pullen Park. IF I AM NOT CONTACTED BY ANYONE BY 5PM, I WILL NOT BE IN PULLEN PARK.

    Please check with me first, before making a trip over there. Thank you kindly!
