It is that time of year again!!! The time has come for the Sixth Annual Stowe Road 4th of July Pig Roast, aka Pigstock. This year we are going to have a pig and a mixed grill! It is going to be awesome.
Here is the current game plan:
Wednesday Night - Poker Extravaganza
Thursday Morning - Lighting of the Coals
Thursday Late Morning - Kickball
Thursday Afternoon - Water slide, games, hanging out
Thursday Evening - Feast
Thursday Night - Fireworks
Friday Morning - Clean-up
We decided to change our prices slightly so we are $100 for a family, $60 for a couple and $40 for an individual. This is going to more food, a pig and, also, if all goes well, an inflatable water park to keep the kids cool and entertained.
The official website, www.StoweRoad.com, is up and running and ready for you to sign up. Matt Raikes is bringing in some newer technology so that you can not only RSVP online, but also pay. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know as soon as possible whether you are or are not going to be able to attend. The sooner I have a head count the easier it is to determine what we can and cannot buy. You can use the PayPal button below to pay at any time. If possible, please transfer funds from a linked checking account so that PayPal doesn't charge us.
Another change is that we are not going to just do sides and desserts. We are going to ask people to bring either an appetizer, side or dessert. This gets us munching a little earlier in the day and will also cut back on the crazy amount of dessert that we typically end up with.
Next steps for everyone is to let me know if you are coming. Also encourage your neighbors to do the same. Mailers went out on Monday so that everyone should know about the event. But this should not stop you from telling everyone you run into about the event. We have a lot of new families so not everyone understands the extent of the insanity.
For those of you that want to help, we need it! MOST IMPORTANTLY we need people to help clean up on Friday (which is a work day). PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU CAN HELP OUT ON FRIDAY MORNING FOR AN HOUR OR SO.
Thank you in advance for all of your help. Everyone chipping in makes this event possible!
