Just bring twice as much as you expect to drink and it’ll be fine. Remember that @OzzyOzzyOzzyOiOiOi has failed us miserably this year.



Wow, the first cut is the deepest :smiley:


Be glad to help with breakfast, Mark, or do one of the days.

This all seems a bit organised. I’m sure people will chip in.

We don’t want to over cater

A moderately welcoming cream tea - Friday afternoon - Not so much a dainty amuse bouche, more a gluttonous 2KG of clotted cream and another 2000g of jam.


Happy to help with Breakfast e.g. step in at those busy moments - Perhaps in charge fried or scrabbled eggs? Also happy to be one of the breakfast washing up wallah.

Additionally I could make a large batch of hairy bikers bread rolls?

How many people are currently attending?

Pork pie will be ordered and obtained.


All is well.

Sounds great, breakfast rolls FTW!

I think numbers are 25-30, with some volatility as reality bites.

If you want to fry eggs, bring a decent non stick frying pan, the one there is useless. That’s why we scrambled last year.

I’ll bring pineapple and mushrooms :grin:


I could get Flo to knock up a couple of bakewells.

Would you guys prefer icing or flaked almonds on top? :joy:


BBQ Friday or Saturday evening?

I’m happy to bring stuff that won’t suffer sitting in a hot car for 4 or 5 hours. Eggs, tea, sugar, drinks, sauces?

Put me down for lettuce

I don’t like lettuce much either, but being put down seems an excessively drastic alternative …



I admire your willingness to sacrifice for the cause but can’t they just buy it?

Saturday evening will be easier, the ribs will take 5-6 hours to cook and I think @Wayward is doing pulled pork & brisket which will be a good 6-10 hours.

In which case @Nick_Dartmoor and anyone else too, we could do tikka paneer kebabs for the BBQ, a mixed veg or whatever you would like curry done Balti style, and some pakora and if I can be arsed samosas too (probably do those in advance and heat them up?), with fresh chutney etc.
