Surrey LUG Summer BBQ 8 June 2019
A good crowd of 15 of us, much protein burnt according to the traditional recipes, much discussion of topics both FOSS and otherwise, for a very relaxing afternoon amongst old friends and new. We finally packed up around 7pm.
A plentiful supply of greenstuff was available, though the aliums and poppies weren't part of the recommended diet:
Barbies were available and well used, no 3rd degree burns this year:
The traditional joke about sell-by dates was celebrated:
And Tom's microbrewery looks set for success:
Yes, it's summer time, get ready for almost raw i/o, or slightly cooked!
The Annual BBQ
Saturday 8 June. 12noon to 6pm
Same location as past years, John W's place, somewhere in West Surrey! More specific details via email.
I would like to know the expected numbers a few days in advance, so mail me (off-list, without [Surrey] in the subject, please). That's slug7of9 followed by an 'at' sign johnwash. co. uk.
Although the location is not good for public transport, we can usually organise lifts from major train stations -- mention this in your mail. Or you can cycle! (Hey, I do, so did Desmond!). Drivers, if you'll be going near a railway station, please mention that.
Parking arrangements will depend on number of cars, so please mention if you're driving.
There will be a barbie (initially surrounded by the usual suspects showing off their leet skills with petrol, singed eyebrows, third degree burns, etc). Also homemade bread and salad, prepared in a kitchen unconstrained by local government food inspectors!
You will be bringing your own choice of protein, roadkill, spamburger or worse, for your own consumption. Likewise beverage.
There may be limited wifi, though this is not certain. In extremis, geeks may be required to indulge in conversation, though other forms of light entertainment, e.g. pouring beer into keyboards, may be acceptable (if sanctioned by the keyboard's owner).
There will be dozens of plastic stacking chairs, but if you fancy more comfortable seating, please bring it.
Hopefully our splendid marquee will be erected, same as last year, so even if the weather takes a turn for the British, we shall be ok.
Anything else I've forgotten???
