State Park Cookout Who's Bringing What?

I figured that we should have a thread specific to who's bring what.

To vote on whether or not you are going to come, please visit the original State Park Cookout thread.

For the most part, I recommend that everyone bring one thing, whether it be chips, salsa, burgers, dogs, beans, drinks, condiments etc. and bring what you like.

In addition to the food, we need handling materials. I will be bringing some reusable plastic plates, forks, knives and spoons(?). Let's be "smart" about these things.

Depending on space in my smart, I may also be bringing a bucket for any food waste... No limits beyond "No liquids" and "No excrement" (for those who decide to bring a pet). I have begun working with Bokashi, which allows a majority of the traditional compost no-no's because it is a fermentation process that makes it easier to compost those materials without attracting wildlife.

And a final note... I am including a poll to determine if we might want to move the cookout to a pavilion to increase attendance. Three of the pavilions are $75 and the fourth is $150. If your vote is "I don't care", don't vote... I forgot to throw that in."

I'm not quite certain if Andy will or will not make it to the cookout, so I am not including him in the list below.

Please note that bold items are primary items. Non-bold are secondaries that are not expected of you, but you are welcome to bring if no one else volunteers.

Right now the tally is:
ColonelPan1c +1: coleslaw, potato salad, and chips (please pick a primary)
nconantj (me) +3: Zweigles and/or Hoffmans (Rochester and CNY local brands respectively) hot dogs, beans
SkippyThorson +1: Pepsi and Dew

Thanks for making a new thread to consolidate things for us. Very kind of you.

I'll do drinks; I will specifically bring a 12-pack each of Pepsi and Mountain Dew. Cola and lemon-lime pretty much covers everyone, right? I'll also bring a thing of little water bottles for non-soda people.

*You can take me off for chips; I don't know who'd like what. I'll just be the refreshments-guy.

Except for the few that absolutely cannot tolerate Pepsi or Dew... They can volunteer to bring what they like.

Bumping this because I'm sure there are more Glen drivers who want to do the cookout.

Thanks! Personally, I voted for the campsite because I don't wouldn't want to pay for the pavilion, but I also wouldn't just join in for free if folks want to go that route. (Hey... As the organizer, don't I get a free pass on things that cost money? I joke.)

I hate to just bump a thread, but we're less than three weeks away from Watkins Glen.

Please, please, please, if you are planning to attend the cookout, say something and volunteer to bring something. It would not be fun to plan for 10 and get 20... Likewise, planning for 10 and getting 4 (though at least there might be something left to eat the next day).

At this point, getting a pavilion is very unlikely, so campsite is where it's likely to be.

I'll say potato salad as the primary, but if there's anything that's missing and needed, let me know and I'll be sure that it gets taken care of.

Edit- +1 on the cabin/campsite.

Anybody know what the Watkins Glen policy is on adult beverages is? Or are we avoiding that sort of thing?

I can also bring charcoal, I just bought a 20lb bag of lump charcoal, so I could definitely spare some.

Campsite 123C is where the party seems to be at!
