Food for Event:  Ginny shared several recipes that sounded great.  Three finalists were:

It was thought sampling some of these at JW’s brew day would be a good idea.

Food for Campsite:  Friday night should be a BYO BBQ.  People are to bring whatever they would like to BBQ with some extra to share.  A potluck of side dishes should give enough food

 

Number of People Attending: Approx 20, probably need Jeff has reserved three campsites. Jeff, Chris and Dave volunteered to go Thursday and reserve camping spots.  We could use three EZ-up tents to be brought.

It was suggested that we have a Brew Day at JW’s to develop some recipes for event.
