 24 days .

 Some folks have asked about how to help , and those of you who have attended know we aren't afraid to ask for assistance . So in that light ...

 We need someone to Shepard the aluminum can recycling containers  maybe 3 volunteers so no one is overwhelmed. we will provide some type of containers .

 Someone needs to make sure everyone signs the guestbook , and don't argue with this person , just sign the book , alright ?

 The stage floor always becomes a bit of a mess , and can be hard to keep organized . Want to try something different this year , set up a couple of tables and keep everything on them , make things easier to find . So we need a couple of volunteers to oversee this .

 Event coordinators , boy that sounds kinda sexy doesn't it ? :laugh: Anyway , since we have several attendees this year who have never came before , it might be nice if a couple of us in addition to the Sultan armed themselves with information about the proceedings . Seems every year we answer a million questions  :grin: Get with Dave or me when you arrive if you are willing .

 We will pick up the bulk of food from the local grocery store at 4 PM or so , we will need a few volunteers and a pick up truck . Who is willing ?
 We have a charge account at the store , if we need something and I ask anyone at any time to make the trip , just put the items on our account .



 Food prep ; with the new cookers we have , the actual 2 hours of chaos on Saturday evening should be a bit less crazy . We still need some tasks performed . John Henry always leads the potato peeling and slicing team , he knows the drill , we just need a couple of folks with good sharp knives to assist him starting around 5 PM on Saturday . It only takes about 15 minutes for 3 people , but it is an important job . Plus John is really funny  :laugh:

 The fish come in boxes and needs to be thawed and rinsed , then dried . This is a messy job , but doesn't take too long . Volunteer to help with this and you will be a hero to me . We will try to have a better system this year for accomplishing this task . If any of you who are driving have a clean 5 gallon bucket to bring , please do so . We can use about 3 of them , one needs to have some holes drilled in it .

 Keeper of the list ; Oh man , this takes some focus , every year we miss something , who is willing to keep a notebook and attempt to keep me calm and focused for two days . Trust me , this job is not easy  :rolleyes:

 OK , and this is the task no one wants , but is very important . Fortunately JC 85 has volunteered to lead the cleanup crew late Saturday evening . He has at least one person lined up to help , it would be nice if some of our other younger attendees volunteered also . I am always so blown out after cooking on Saturday that about all I am capable of is some vague hand motions and a few unintelligible grunts . So we will provide some direction earlier, but basically we need to dispose of trash , clean up the stage , wash the concrete fllor under where we have been prepping and cooking food , and get everything packed up . Seriously if 5 people work for about 15 minutes the task can be completed .

 Thanks

 Dusty

I plan to take the travel trailer and truck.  You're welcome to use it. 

I can also bring some additional food and supplies with me.  So give me a list and I'll be glad to.   Since we chatted about beer I thought I'd bring along a couple of PBR 30 packs.  I've got an extra ice chest.  In the past I've brought a couple of smoked racks of ribs, I could do that again.

We aim to be there well ahead of the Saturday festivities (fingers crossed) and if so, I can help with the grocery run.  And if you can, somebody bring an extra paring knife or two.  I can't cook a lick but I'm not too bad at peeling potatoes.  Like Rudy says, if I can stay awake long enough I'll be glad to help clean up.

 Friday , or even Thursday is good . By Saturday I am so busy it is impossible to really visit with anyone . In 2018 a friend from California and his wife showed up at about 3:PM on Saturday , looked right at him and his face didn't even register in my brain  :laugh:

 Someone bring Sarah a paring knife  :grin:

Dusty, Phil Schreck and I will help out with something not all-that heavy duty. Maybe picking up cans for recycling, something like that.

  Good morning happy campers , it is April 15 , the day I chose as kind of an arbitrary day to make a final decision . There isn't any data indicating we can't do this , at least not if we practice some basic safety measures .

 In that light , no kissing , fair enough ? :laugh: Seriously , do be careful , but most if not all of us have been vaccinated , as has the population of Cedar Vale . At this time we are cautiously optimistic , be smart , be careful , let's do this .

 We still need at least two more volunteers for the cleanup crew , not a sexy job , but you will earn my everlasting respect .

Thanks, RHAT. We just need one or two more, now. I'll get with everyone sometime on Saturday to organize things and set up a plan to get it all done quickly and easily.

Someone needs to make sure everyone signs the guestbook , and don't argue with this person , just sign the book , alright ? 

I'll cover this one Dusty as per PM.

I'll also have special 2021 Cedar Vale stickers available for this rally, plus a few "limited edition" ones.

If people don't feel comfortable using a shared pen, please use your own to sign the guest book. 

(In case anyone wants a notary to validate their signature, we'll have our esteemed Esquire Prescott provide his stamp of approval!   :thumb: :thumb:)


Thanks all!

 The clean up crew is pretty well set ;

 JC 85 and his buddy , Tom Kelly , and Sarah Greer . Some others can kick in for a few minutes , and voila , we have a clean pavilion .

 Richard and Chuck G , you both know the cooking drill , kinda hate to ask much more from you guys . We'll need one more for that crew , probably Wes will round us out , since Gliderjohn's mom and wife will be there hated to take him away from them , although knowing John he will probably still pitch in, some folks are just gonna help no matter what .

 Hoping we have some type of flat top to grill some fish and taters on , like we did last Fall , that worked out well .Doug ?

 Event coordinators ? Anyone ? Beaver , are you coming ? Someone has to keep Prescott lined out . This year I think we will stage Saturday evening a little different , maybe get the meal and cleanup out of the way , then start the auction , of course like Hobbits , we can keep snacking after the main meal , but thinking we will start feeding about 5:30 and finish up by 6:15 give the clean up crew some time to do their job , then start the auction about 7:00 . Does anyone see a problem with this ?

 Thanks Sarah .

 If we time this right , and we can get everyone moving in the right direction for just a few minutes after the Saturday evening meal , this will go pretty smoothly . We just need about 4 dedicated people to focus on the area where we prep and cook for a few minutes , then we can all relax and enjoy the auction .

 Any one still contemplating attending needs to give us a shout . We promise at least one alien , probably Roger , will be there , and there will be a guest appearance by some guy named Pastrana , any of you guys ever hear of him ? Guessing Roger , the alien crash test dummy is more famous  :grin:
