We will be playing under the covered parking area behind the building.

After we play everyone has been invited to join their BBQ. In order to put out the right

number of chairs, I need to know the number of people going. For the BBQ they need to

know how many each want: hamburger, hot dog, iced tea,pepsi or ginger ale

Barbara Shaw will be taking a count on Tuesday;

If you know anyone who does not get this blog, please give them the information and
