    Default === Bay Area Mod-Fest BBQ Invitation ===

    Friends, it have been a while since we had a get together in the South Bay. With our swamped schedule during the summer kinda prohibit anyone from hosting one earlier.

    My house (especially garage) have been a messed so I was too ashamed to host such an event. But within the next couple weeks, I'll push for a major clean-up before you guys arrive

    The tentative available date will probably be September 22rd. The timeframe would be 11AM-11PM.
    Hopefully with this meet into the Fall season it makes it easier for everyone to schedule and attend.

    As with earlier mod-fest, all my tools will be available at your disposal. Including: lathe, mill, grinder, meters, solder station ... etc.

    As for food, this is what we have
    1. Something BBQ
    2. Spring rolls
    3+. What every you plan to bring.

    If you plan to bring a dish please make a post of what you're bringing so there's no duplicate.

    If you're interested in dropping by for this mod session or just get to see old friends, please make a post here for reservation (so I know how much food to get), and what type of mod will you be doing (so I can prepare the tooling and parts).

    BTW: If you don't know my address and number by now drop me a PM.

    I can pretty much guarantee that Jonathan will have the grill fired up.

    I am sad to say that I am having to back out of coming. Too much driving that week already.

    Have fun.

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry for the lack of activity. I've had my hands "full" the last couple weeks.

    So far everything is still on schedule. September 23rd (11-7) is still the date.

    As for food, I have the following food volunteer.
    SheDevil ... desert
    JimH ... the "Beans"

    I do have a grill and will be fired up around lunch time (12:00-2:00)

    C U all there.

    Looking like with the current grilling timeframe, my wings might not fit the bill. I am going to need about 3 hours to get them prepared after I get there, I guess they can be an after lun/before dinner snack...

    Tim


    Looks like logistics are not going to allow me to come through with the wings, they will have to wait until my next BBQ.

    Sorry

    I goofed guys. I meant to say it's Saturday September 22nd but somehow what I wrote was Sunday.

    So, I'll try to call everyone that I have # for and notify.
    Please pass on the new, just in case.
    I don't want anyone to show up on Sunday and see nobody home.

    Just FYI, tomorrow is Yom Kippur. If there are any Jews (like me) who actively practice to any degree at all (unlike me), they probably won't be able to make it on Saturday.
