Who  : You!  Your fiends!  Everybody!
What : GNHLUG Summer BBQ Party (with all others welcome)
Where: Miles Smith Farm, Loudon, NH
Date : Saturday, September 8, 2012 (*THIS SATURDAY*)
Time : 3 PM - 8 PM (or whenever everyone leaves)

UPDATE

  The GNHLUG BBQ is *this Saturday*!

  Weather forecast says warm, cloudy, and maybe wet, but there are
indoor facilities if need be.

  17 yes, 6 maybe.  It's starting to look like a real party!

  The potluck list could still use some help:

* burgers
* beef sausages
* tabouleh salad
* mincemeat pies
* veggies and dip
* chips
* cookies
* brownies

  Please consider bringing something.  It can be store-bought or
simple.  Our hosts are providing burgers and sausages.

  If you object to third-party registration website thingies, please
email me off-list and I can register you without email or even name.

  Any questions, please email me.

INTRODUCTION

  Let's all get together and enjoy the company of friends and
colleagues -- and some darn good food!

  Anyone associated or connected with GNHLUG, or interested in Linux,
Unix, Free/Open Source Software, or anything related, is welcome.
Everyone is encouraged to take this chance to meet and mingle with
other Linux enthusiasts.  While primarily a social event, tech talk is
inevitable at these things, and useful tips and even business
opportunities often pop up.

REGISTRATION

  Please RSVP here (so we know how many to expect):

http://www.punchbowl.com/partypage/4637200-gnhlug-summer-bbq?noflash=true

  That also will let you register items for the potluck list. Please
look it over to make sure we don't get too many of the same thing,
then add your own.  Show off your culinary or shopping skills, and
please bring some kind of edible item for the party.  BYOB.  Note,
there are more potluck slots than we likely need, for flexibility.
And remember, the farm is supplying hamburgers and beef sausage, so we
don't need more of those.

The registration site:

  * Requires JavaScript
  * Requires an email address (but promises not to publish or share it)
  * Will generate a guest-specific URL for you, once you've registered
  * Will email you a copy of your registration, with that URL
  * Lets you use the URL to edit your responses

  If you object to the above, email me privately (off-list) with your
registration information, and I'll add your info without your mail
address.

  Thanks to Bill McGonigle for setting up the registration thingy.

LOCATION

  Bruce Dawson and Carole Soule have once again generously offered to
be our hosts, at Miles Smith Farm in Loudon, NH (just East of
Concord).  If you've never been there, it's a beautiful spot, with a
rustic old farm house and barn, hilly fields, and an incredible view.
The "farm" part isn't just a name -- it's an actual, working farm,
with cows and horses, and farm products for sale.  Don't let that
scare you away, though -- Bruce is a certified geek, so electricity
and WiFi Internet are readily available.

  Driving directions are on the farm web site:
