Anyone interested in a Norcal BBQ? We just moved into our new home and I would love to host a BBQ.

I've got this nice pool, a fire pit, a good size lawn and some decent parking out front smile.gif

I was thinking July 14th weather permitting

jsharp.gif

First off Bring your own drinks. I'll have water available for everyone.

Things I need brought.
1. Deserts - Cookies (I have an unused 5gal jug of ice cream), smores, cake, ect. - Oakdale Curtis
2. Green salad or other vegetables as such.
3. Veggie tray -ValcoOscar
4. Fixins for burgers (Lettuce, Tomatoes, Onions)
5. Side dish (Pasta Dish) -ValcoOscar
6. Side dish
7. Chips and dip if desired
8. Second desert biggrin.gif

I will bring:
Burgers/Dogs/Corn/Buns/pool

If your going swimming bring your own towel, I have some, but not enough for everyone!

TIME! 3-9pm is what I think would be best. I'll serve food at 4pm and if anyone is still here when it cools down I'll get the fire going.

More of a feeler right now to gauge interest and time.

I was thinking July/August. smile.gif

I would love to attend if it coincides with the Werks reunion weekend August 25-26th. Kind of like a warm up for the 2nd annual SoCal Funday in Temecula, right Oscar?

July / August? I can't stay the whole 2 months, but maybe just lunch and then I'll drop a Baby Ruth candy bar in the pool for fun.

Nice place by the way! Congratulations!

Sounds Great Andy. Cathy and I slap.gif are about 1 1/2 hours south of you in Madera. Haven't connected with any other Teeners in the valley. Will be traveling some this summer. Post a date when you have it and I'll let you know if we can make it. BTW - valley heats no problem, we're acclimated. Besides, we'll be driving a 914 with A/C.

Sounds like there's enough interest to go through with this event.

If anyone has a particular date that doesn't work for them let me know and I'll do my best to work around it.

I'll setup some lawn games as well, giant Jenga, 914 triva contest, ect smile.gif

Andyrew
Double post.
Justinp71

Sounds like fun, I'd be interested to go as well.

Comfy CRX, is that what they call an oxymoron?
biggrin.gif


Anywho, as long as one does not get stuck in traffic, your 914 should be just fine in the cool 110 degree valley morning breeze ...

I'm interested.
I don't see any problem with July/August compared to staying home in Sacramento.

No CRX. The wife made me get rid of it a few years back. I have a 2012 MINI Cooper now.

The 914 might be, but I wouldn't be!!!!

I am tentatively in. A lot will depend on the whole pool thing. That does look like a nice pool. The only thing I want to see topless there is a 914 though. A bunch of fat old geezers strutting their stuff shirtless would affect me eating any BBQ you might make. I do include myself in that group that I'd rather not see topless aktion035.gif
Andyrew
Let's talk about a tentative date of Saturday July 14th. beerchug.gif

The pool is fully shaded about 6pm, but the backyard patio is fully shaded about 2pm. I am leaning towards a later BBQ but I want to be conscious of all the driver's that will be driving in the heat. We have the fire pit and I don't mind pushing the party till 9 or 930pm (Alina goes to sleep around there) so we could make smores or just enjoy the fire. I am also not apposed to a 10am BBQ and doing a lunch and pushing it to dinner for those that want to stay.

When it gets closer we can check the weather to see if the temps will be decent (mid to low 90s). If it's a 100+ day or worse a 110 plus day we can reschedule it.

Let me know your thoughts everyone!

Thanks!

Andrew, cool idea of a bbq, after all of these years still don't have a running teener.

After an electrical fire was the last straw for my 73, sold it as a shell to someone doing a chevy v8 implant. The closest thing I have now to a running teener is my daughter's 70.

I quoted DD's comment because she also just got a mini cooper of the running variety.

Love to attend to see you guys. biggrin.gif

Ooooh! Loved Jamaica. PM me when your in Jamaica so I can schedule around if the weather is too hot or I get to many cant go's because of that date. (I cant accommodate everyone, but I'll try my best!)

14th is open for me
jcd914
Just as a data point, neither the 14th or 21st of July work for me.

Jim
Andyrew
Watching the temps. If it stays over 100 we'll push it a week and see.
Andyrew
As a side note, I was working on the backyard yesterday morning and the pool was 82deg at 8am and the weather was up to 102 yesterday. Also it was 88 around 3pm. I didnt take a swim but my wife and daughter put their feet in for 20 mins and enjoyed it smile.gif Pool umbrella helped.

Let me know your guys' thoughts.
oakdalecurtis
14th in, 21st out...
Andyrew
Weather has changed its mind again. Its showing 95 for the 14th (Next Saturday). Thats perfectly acceptable weather for a pool party/BBQ, in fact should be really good!

We had the 4th here and it was 90, and it was very cool and relaxing in the back yard. We even had a bonfire going as it was a bit chilly from the pool.

So, lets talk the food menu.

First off Bring your own drinks. I'll have water available for everyone.

Things I need brought.
1. Deserts - Cookies (I have an unused 5gal jug of ice cream), smores, cake, ect. - Oakdale Curtis
2. Green salad or other vegetables as such.
3. Veggie tray
4. Fixins for burgers (Lettuce, Tomatoes, Onions)
5. Side dish
6. Side dish
7. Chips and dip if desired
8. Second desert biggrin.gif

I will bring:
Burgers/Dogs/Corn/Buns/pool

If your going swimming bring your own towel, I have some, but not enough for everyone!

TIME! 3-9pm is what I think would be best. I'll serve food at 4pm and if anyone is still here when it cools down I'll get the fire going.

By some random coincidence I will be driving back up from LA. Had a quick trip planned to visit my daughter. Am flying down thursday & was flying home Saturday night. Now I'm skipping my flight. Buying a Subaru forester to haul a motor back. Plus serve as a temporary driver until I can get my truck fixed. Picking up a new long block for my truck in Rio Linda CA. So how far away are you from there Andrew?
jcd914
Jamie,
Modesto is about 1 1/2 hours south of Rio Linda on highway 99, not accounting for traffic.
If you are driving up from LA and come up on 99 you will go through Modesto but I don't know where Andrew's house is in relation to the highway.

Jim
oakdalecurtis
Andy moved recently moved to Riverbank, next to Modesto, about 20 minutes east of 99. Pm Andrew for address n directions. beerchug.gif
