Actually, we have a pretty high tolerance for people wearing bunny suits here in Vermont. So, not a problem...

Make sure you pack the right suit. Don't take the one with the cute slippers and the bunny ears. The east coast people may not understand your Kalifornicator ways :rolleyes:

You mean the one with the special bunny-flap? :rofl:

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Alright, NERDS Campfire decisions made.

First, the food and drink. :drinks: We're going with a fixed price of $6/person. That will cover whatever food and beverages you wish to consume at the campfire. If you want to bring your own and skip the $6, no problem.

We're going to have:
  • Hamburgers/Cheesburgers
  • Hot Dogs
  • Black Bean Burgers (for those of you who don't like to eat dead-animal parts)
  • My homemade, best-in-the-world, secret recipe 5-Beer Chili
  • Chips
  • Pickles
  • Watermelon
  • Soda
  • Beer
  • Water

No need to pay ahead of time. Just drop your $6 in the jar when you get here. (We trust ya...) ;)

Second, the Transportation. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the party bus idea is going to work out. :cray: Based on the Poll results, it doesn't look like we would have enough people committed to the bus to make it economical. So, transportation is not going to be provided from the hotel to the campfire and back. There will be directions to the campfire posted at the hotel. It's only about 11 miles and it's not that hard to find. If you plan to come here directly, PM me and I'll be glad to give you my address.

The option to arrange your own transportation using one of the local taxi/van companies is still open. If you get 5-6 people together, the costs would be pretty reasonable.

The campfire festivities will start about 6:30pm and go as long as people want to stay. If it rains (which I'm positive it won't so I shouldn't even bother mentioning this, but if it does...) then we will, unfortunately, have to cancel the campfire. (But it's not going to rain, so forget I even said that)

Ed.

Well I won't be there for it, but I do know one thing. If you eat that 5 beer chilli, you need to find another roommate.
