2017 SWFMAS Holiday Party / Potluck BBQ and Christmas Boat Parade

26 posts in this topic

RickO has generously offered to host the cookout at his home to coincide with the Fort Myers Beach Boat Parade again this year.
 
The parade starts at 6:00 pm and ends at 8:00 pm. It usually runs a little late and they should be by the house between 7:00 to 7:30. The weather, winds, amount of boats and how much the captains of the boats have to drink will have effects on the time so it is not carved in stone.
 
We will be eating before the parade, so please arrive between 5:00 pm and 5:30 pm.
As usual, the club will provide the meat and sodas. This year we will be catering the BBQ meat from Mission BBQ.

We are also adding an ugly holiday sweater/outfit contest this year. Prizes TBD. 
 

Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.
Please also bring a lawn chair with you.
 
There is a $5 per person charge for those attending that are not paid club members to cover food expenses.
 
Parking will be at a premium in the subdivision.
It has been recommended that we organize car-pooling from the old Win Dixie now Walmart parking lot at the San Carlos and Summerlin intersection or get here early and beat the neighbors out of the street parking.
If you are willing to meet to carpool, please arrive at parking lot between 4:30 pm - 4:45 pm.

I thought Robin said no baked ziti  for Jeff. Does that mean he does not get any? :)

Yes. Meat is coming from Mission BBQ.

So you just need to pick up the drinks and ice from the club.

And also bring your side dish or dessert and a lawn chair.
