Boardie BBQ & Gathering
May 3, 2014 (Saturday)
Tourne Park, Boonton, NJ
9am-7pm, Rain or Shine


General:
My arrival is at 8:00am 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 either be a roaster based menu (Ex: Turkeys, Hams, Pork Roasts, Beef Roasts, Etc) or a grilled menu (Ex: Sausages, Burgers, HotDogs, Chicken, London broils).    "Served till it runs out" style.   Park closes by sunset, so 5:30/6:00pm is when the breakdown begins...

I'll Provide:
-Lite Breakfast for the Early Birds (Please RSVP specifically for Earlybird service)
-Full Lunch  
-Full Dinner

-Some Hot dogs for kids from a tiny tailgater grill
-Some Simple Sides & Vegetarian Specific items
-Soft Drinks & Ice Water
-All Equipment (Roaster/King Cooker/Iced Salad bar/paper products & plasticwares)
-Ice & Some Coolerspace

Please Bring:
-BYO Beer/Wine/Alcohol/mixers
-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??

-Extra clothing layers:    It can get brisk at that time of the year.

-Kid Support Stuff

Costs:
Includes Food/Soft Drinks & $150 park permits, which includes the alcohol permit:
-$17.00/Person PREPAID.  
-$20.00/Person DAY OF EVENT
-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 28th. 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 45 people, the budget is tight…

I'm going to be more available in the morning than I would be in the evening.  I'll most likely have to be home by 6:30 or 7:00.

 

IF I bring the family, or one of the girls, I'll be able to offer ALOT less in the kitchen. I'll keep in touch as we get closer, but I've got the day in the calendar!!

My acoustic guitar will be there :)

My stomach will be there :)

 

This is always such a strong vibes event.

I wanna bring my 3 year old, but I wanna be in the kitchen... these two things DO NOT MIX.

 

I've never asked Lisa if this is something she would enjoy, since I'm usually cooking, and she'd be alone with YOU FREAKS.

 

Maybe we'll all come (3 & 1 year old).  It's probably a better day for them playing with new kids than it is for me getting in Eddie's way on the roaster. :lol:

 

I'm torn.

Ah bring em'. We usually take turns anyway, watching and playing with them.

 

If all else fails, at least the bears get fed :cheesy:

Don't stress about it too much.   Bring the whole family, and break away for foodservice during crunch time, if you can.    Quite frankly, there's so many helpful people here that everything just seems to work out onsite. 

 

I do want to seriously pre-coordinate is the post event cleanup back at my home in Denville:  The 45 minute dish washing and cooler scrubbing party.         After everyone bails out, *that's* the mammoth chore that totally sucks to do alone..      That's the one that if left on my own, I probably won't do this.         Elder rocked this out a few times with me.   Last year, Roo did too!.

You wouldn't. Not since 1995, at least. Unless you need coffee and a place to relax with your thoughts at 3:30 am. That would be the only reason.
