SOCIAL - Second Annual All-Club BBQ - 17 July
« on: Jun 07, 2016, 02:48 PM »
Last year was a lot of fun but a little cramped.    In the spirit of keeping it accessible to as many Mercs, Troopers, Rebels, Jedi, and Nerf Hearders,  I'm moving it to Central Park in Burnaby right next to Patterson Skytrain Station.  Central Park is pretty huge so I'll scout a good spot out and leave some breadcrumbs ahead of time.

It'll be a potluck again.  I'll be bringing a propane grill and a picnic blanket, bring your own beverages and munchies and maybe a little something to share with a friend.

First we'll pick a date, then we can start a signup sheet if you folks want.  So pick the dates that work for you here and the date with the most votes wins.  Feel free to invite anyone, this is on to all clubs, official members, recruits, roadies, groupies, and hangers-on. 

What are you bringing?

No clue, and no clue.  I haven't been to Central Park in years.    On my phone at Waves waiting for Eileen to get out of a meeting so looking it up will have to wait.   Last year a few people brought portable camping bbqs and it worked well.

I don't know the rules on that; may have to keep an ear out about fire band with charcoal?   Anyone know for sure?

I thought the deciding factor was that gas can be turned off and charcoal can't.    Who knows.

In california it depends on where the charcoal is used, in a contained environment (AKA bbq) its cool, in a pit it depends on fire conditions.
