The wife and I are toying with the idea of hosting Saturday night dinner after the contest at our house (about 3 miles from the field).

We are thinking of having a BBQ - burgers, dogs, sausage, possibly some marinated flank steaks or london broil, roasted potatoes, corn, salad.

Nothing set in stone but I am fishing for ideas and if anyone is interested.

We could have bring your own beer or steaks or whatever you want us to grill. Down the block from us is a Fairway supermarket so you could grab some really good stuff there. Top quality produce.

I figure this might be a good way to reduce the cost of coming to the Island and for all of us to get together after flying.

One idea was no charge(just the offering of a donation) IF we reached a certain number of contestants like say 20, the otehr might be to just chage $5 or $10 for all you can eat for it or might just put out a donation jar to help offset the cost for us. Not sure.

What do you guys think?????

Just trying to get some feelers out about the idea......

Frank

Ok, eventhough I can cook, how's about we all meet at Major's steakhouse?

menu
http://www.majorssteakhouse.com/Home.html

you want exotic, we have thai, japanese, Chinese, Greek, Indian, Afgani, and more I am sure.

Let's come up with a consensus and I'll look into if they can give us a single large room or table.

But I need input!!

Frank,great idea; I would have liked to stay for dinner but I need to get back to 'the mainland'.

BTW, what is the policy for timer/watch malfunctions?

I believe it is if it is your timer, you are SOL. If it is the window timer, we will refly the round.

I always make it a point that I have not seen this addressed in the rules thus far. I may have missed it too.

I usually ask both timer and pilot to have their own watches so they would only lose a few seconds turning on the spare.

I am open to suggestions as to how to handle this.......

The date is about 3 weeks away.

Does everyone want to all go out for dinner on Sat?

Suggestions would be appreciated. I haven't eaten out as much and do not have a very discriminating pallate . I'll eat almost anything!!
