Worried guy I see you had me down as 2 but wife will not be able to attend as she is at a horse show, so I am coming as a single.

Is there something I can bring?

Also I will be driving and staying at the hotel in Greece so can provide rides to people from the hotel to your place.

Hey Gardener55,

If your screen name is eponymous you can bring a bag of potting soil or crab grass killer. smile

You don't need to bring anything. We've got it covered. Over the years we've found that it is far safer to have the hosts plan and/or arrange everything so there are no surprises. One of the other hosts passes the hat (envelop) to help defray the costs.
Of course it is very nice if guests chip in with some of the labor.
I need some NY State residents to keep track of burnables, recyclables, returnables, metals, out of state returnables, fox food, etc..
I know from experience folks from Louisiana are not the best for this task. They call everything "landfill"! smile
See you in about 2 weeks.

Hey Jeff, just a reminder. Usually one night is a seafood delight, but there are a few who can't have seafood. It will be great if there is a non-pescatarian option. Thanks!

We've got you covered.
Lunches will be various sandwiches on croissants. Chicken salads, veggie trays.
Thursday dinner will be a Rochester delicacy that is served at virtually every restaurant in town. I'll keep it a secret for now.
Friday night seafood will be clams, shrimp, fish plus locally grown corn, potato, and other veggies. The non-fish option for Friday will be 1/4 chicken.
Saturday will BBQ - ribs pulled pork, brisket, corn bread, cole slaw, plus...
Fruit salad , pasta salad, mixed veggies, veg trays... will be available every day.
Nobody will go hungry! smile

Friday night will be Martini tasting, Saturday will be 142's world famous Scotch tasting. the selection gets bigger every year.
We'll aim to have our meeting at 3:00 on Saturday but this might move depending upon the weather.
That weekend there is a local festival and car show in town that's always quite popular.
You'll have a great time.

Well we have arrived a bit early. Stopped in to get my new phone and spending the weekend. Will roll out on Monday to see some of the area. Will return next Friday for prepping. Great to be with friends.

Looks like they have thought of everything to make this a great gathering.

Can't wait to see all of you guys and to meet you new guys.
