Rats. I'm scheduled to work that Saturday. Have a great time. Thanks so much to the planners and those participating. I'm grateful you keep things going. I'll join in whenever my work schedule allows. CJ
I plan to come, and drag Bart if I can talk him into it. I was thinking a spinach lasagna or some other cheesy-tomatoey baked Italian dish, like stuffed shells. If there are too many of that kind of dish, let me know and I'll bring a salad or something instead.
I'll definitely come, but I have somethinguntil about 1:30, then it'll take me about 10 minutes or so to get to the municipal center. I can make a desert and maybe bring some plastic cutlery, if need be.
So sorry, but I'm going to have to show up late. I forgot about another commitment that will mean I'm unlikely to arrive before about 1 p.m. So I'll probably bring something of the dessert variety--fruit or cookies or something.
I'll be there. Looks like you need forks, knives and spoons. I accept the challenge. This wasn't my best Nanowrimo year. I admit it.I did not get to 50K. But it was not my worst, either. Congratulations to everyone that made their goal!

(We have someone who is a maybe bringing them, but since she's a maybe....
If they aren't needed, Tim and I just take the extras home and use them at next year's Kick-off party. We do the same thing with plates, and napkins. It ensures we have plenty of the basic supplies for each event without having to buy them ourselves each year. :)
