The only way they could stop you from winning lowell for the 6th straight year was to cancel it... so now you feel the need to go to Harvard?

No one lend him stamps please...

Don't worry, we'll do everything we can to ensure that she has a good time so you can keep hanging with us all!

This event was great, especially since it was a first year event. This year should be even betterer! The band (the Joshua Tree) is supposed to be awesome, the fireworks were FANTASTIC, the potluck dinner on Saturday wea really yummy with everyone bringing something, and the whole feel is one of team comraderie (?) with lots of good, old-fashioned smack-talk thrown in too!! Set on an enormous farm out in the boonies, isn't this what it's all about?

See ya there!

Really looking forward to next weekend, as long as we don't get threated by any other hurricanes or tropical storms.
It has been a long month off for me and Bob, since we last cooked at Harpoon.:rolleyes:
My knees are a little better, I will be able to walk around and see the other teams as I always enjoyed so much before.:eusa_clap
The students are looking forward also, as well as one of the kids Dad.

For those that didn't see the email... Andy is asking for 1/2 sheet pans for pot luck items.

Who is doing the people's choice?

Bastey Boy
09-11-2008, 09:35 AM
Yes, I'll have chafing trays and sterno, so half-sized aluminum pans will be perfect.

Eric and Cindi gave me a bunch of fresh jalapenos, so I guess I'll make chili.

We are doing the People's Choice. Turn in is 11 A.M. at the People's Choice tent, NOT the Judging tent. It's only a few hundred feet away.

Looks like a bit-o-weather too, so bring your galoshes!
