Boardie BBQ & Gathering
April 20, 2013 (Saturday)
Tourne Park, Denville, NJ
9am-7pm, Rain or Shine
My arrival is at 8:30am or so...with a light breakfast for those who show up early. Lunch to be served around 12:00pm, with lunch blurring into dinner, roughly 5pm. There will be dinner specific items. The menu is TBD, but it’ll most likely be a roaster based dinner menu (Ex: Turkeys, Hams, Pork Roasts, Beef Roasts, Etc) with potentially a grilled lunch menu (Ex: Sausages, burgers, dogs, Chicken, London broils). "Served till it runs out" style. Park closes by sunset, so 5:30/6:00pm is when the breakdown begins...
-Lite Breakfast for the Early Birds (Please RSVP specifically for Earlybird service)
-Some Hot dogs for kids
-Some Simple Sides & Vegetarian Specific items
-Soft Drinks & Ice Water
-All Equipment (Roaster/King Cooker/Iced Salad bar/paper products & plasticwares)
-Ice & Some Coolerspace
-If you feel so moved, Please bring desserts/apps/snacks/chips/vegetarian items, etc. Although I always have plenty of food, the limited budget keeps my focus on the main stuff.
-Comfortable shoes (some really nice trails around).
-Sports equipment: Softball field close by. Open fields for frisbees, wiffle ball. There's bike trails too.
-Acoustic Instruments for the cosmic jam out??
Includes Food/Soft Drinks & $150 park permits, which includes the alcohol permit:
-$20.00/Person DAY OF EVENT (I might consider a reduced fee for late arrivals).
-Children under 6: Free. Children 7-10: $7/child
-"Just Hang" no Food/Beverage: $5/each to help pay for the $150 grove rental fee & Alcohol permit.
-Please Prepay By April 12th. There's a great potential for me to take a bath on this, especially if I pre-purchase food for the people who "YES" me to death, but flake out and "no show".
-No refunds offered. With an expected 25-30 people, the budget is very tight…
