Amy Singer and Eva Pronenko were going to try and get a couple more parents together to have a BBQ/Picnic for an upcoming game. The thought was during one of the double headers or a weekend game that occurs around dinner time, we could all bring a small dish to pass and/or BBQ some hot dogs and burgers. This sounds like a great idea to me. And I am sure the kids would just LOVE this.
Amy Singer circulated an email today about the possibility of doing this at the upcoming tourney in Vernon Hills. However, reading through the Vernon Hills Athletic Assoc. website, it seems they do not allow outside food or outside coolers into the park. This makes sense as most if not all parks/facilities that sell food usually do not want outside food brought in because it kills their sales.
So I was going to put together a food and participant list for the site to try and organize this. But considering we cannot do this at the tourney, we will have to do this in a couple weeks. So I will speak to a couple of the parents as I am sure Amy and Eva will, and we will try to determine which game would be best for this. So please leave a comment to this post with your ideas and your wishes to participate so we can get a list going. As we get closer and get more of this figured out I will also circulate an email.
Lets get some ideas discussed here guys! This is a great idea and will be a ton of fun for the parents and the team. If you would like to bring a small BBQ grill (like a smokey joe), or have some ideas on which game would be best or what food you would like to bring, start discussing it here. Its the best place for it.
