I have heard we may have more folks this year than we have had in the past. Last year we had about 75 and there are rumors we may have upwards to 100. This is forum members and not neighbors, so that will be one heck of a crowd. I have about 30 folding chairs in the barn that I use for gatherings when needed and have been wanting to add more. Today while cruising through craigslist I found a church that was selling 50 of their old chairs so I gave them a call. They turned out to be in great condition so I loaded them up.
I ended up with the chairs and they threw in a nifty cart. Actually they listed the cart for sale and said the chairs went with it. Either way, I got the whole shebang for less than it would have cost to rent the chairs.
I should be good to go with seats, now I will watch for a few tables.
Of course, if you have all those seats you need food. That is never a problem at the Bash. All the ladies, and a couple of the guys, always pitch and do a GREAT job in helping make sure everyone is fed. This year I recieved a call from a member who wants to volunteer to help with the cooking.Photo provided by Mike in Louisiana
What a great addition to the cooking staff. We just may have something to nibble on come Thursday night. Watch for more details.
Let me know if you plan to arrive early so I can figure out a Thursday evening meal of some sort.
