Default Rough River 2008 - Personal Problem

My wife is sick, far too sick for me to leave for a weekend.

I have the money for the lunch and can buy ALL the food and supplies for it. People were very generous last year!

I have 2 volunteers, doug and neverquit.

doug lives in a different city and greg is driving a sports car.

Getting Volunteers in past years was painful and many tried to cancel after volunteering, but, if lunch is desired I need a driver to get the supplies to Rough River and Volunteers to serve it.

I am just north of Detroit

I too will not be going. I will be out of the country most likely.

I hate to miss this and would have gladly brought down the Kowalski's, etc. in my veggie burner.

However, I will not be, but my thoughts and prayers will be going out to dust and his wife that they will endure this bump in the road of life and that we see dust and Max at RR next year with wide grins on both.

Dust,

I'm truly sorry to hear of the illness in the family. RR will always be around, obviously. Take care of yourself and the Mrs... See you next year.

Remi

Well, the lunch plans are moving along quite well, steve, doug and neverquit are handling it.

A huge cooking pot and burner is needed and i am buying one and having it dropped shipped to doug to take to the lunch. He conveniently will supply the propane tank.

Hopefully i can just leave it with him to bring each year, I'm quite sure that i will be back next year.

For those of you that are concerned about money, cause i am making millions on this lunch.

i am taking the three hundred out of the money collected last year to partly reimburse me for money spent, i am buying the pot for 70 bucks. I spent 200 or more each of the prior years on the lunch.

I will buy the kowalski dawgs, send them with neverquit and send ALL of the money, including my reimbursement money for last year for the supplies for this year.

In other words, i will still have paid 300 bucks out of my pocket for last years lunch.

I am buying the pot with my own funds.

When done, Steve will send me any money collected so i can fund next years lunch.

OK, here it is

last year i collected 485, 60 went to reimburse the pop guy, that leaves 425
i am sending 300 to steve to get the food listed and i am spending 120+6% on dawgs.

Note that there is no ice, water or beer, if you wants it bring it! It would be nice if someone could ice the pop down at 10:30, that is about the time that steve should show up with the food.

Neverquit will have the dawgs

Doug will have the cooker and propane for the dawgs

Ed will have the stove and pots for the chili

Steve or doug or rick or ed will send me the collections this year and i will see to it that there is lunch next year. This is the 4th year of the lunch. As i have paid for 90% of the lunch each of the past 3 years it became expensive. Now that the contributions pay for the food - it can continue.
