Potluck list[edit]

Volunteer to bring potluck food, supplies and recreations

Food[edit]

  • Burgers and other things to grill (beef, turkey, veggie)
    • I will attempt to bring a 8 Pack of Veggie Hotdogs and a 16 pack of Normal Hot Dogs with buns. If you want to have (veggie)burgers, chicken, fish or any other grilled item, please bring them defrosted (with buns and/or seasoning/sauces if needed) because I can't promise that I will have those items there. I will grill these items for you. # Sidepocket (Sidepocket {talk})

Equipment[edit]

The Grill, thanks to our expert griller
  • Staking out space and bringing signage -- Pharos (talk)
  • Blankets, tarps, sheet to sit on, spread out food on
  • Utensils -- Lange.lea (talk)
  • Plates/cups -- Pharos (talk), Lange.lea (talk)
  • Grill and cooking
    • I might be able to bring my Grill with Propane Tank. Is a permit required? # Sidepocket (Sidepocket {talk}) 14:59, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
      • Sidepocket: I think only charcoal grills are allowed, if you have one, or if I can borrow one and you help me operate it. -- Pharos (talk) 20:09, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
        • I can do the later option, I'm knowledgeable at grilling in all forms and I'll bring some food stuff and people can bring in the rest. #Sidepocket (Sidepocket {talk}) 2:22, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
          • Is this a barbecue allowed area? Prospect Park grilling
            • Good point. Looking at the Park List we have two options. Have the grill in a grill zone and bring the food to the picnic area OR have everyone pre-grill a set number of stuff and bring it to the picnic. # Sidepocket (Sidepocket {talk}) 9:59, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
              • Sidepocket: Yes, we specifically picked a location that is in the grill zone, so we'll be good in that regard.--Pharos (talk) 16:44, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
                • Suggest next WikNic tshirt that say "In the Grill Zone!" :-) -- BrillLyle (talk)
                  • Ok, as back up just in case Pharos can't bring a grill I will bring one or two of those Disposable Grills. # Sidepocket (Sidepocket {talk})

  • Sorry. RoyGoldsmith (talk) 14:18, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Already have plans for that day :/ A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 13:51, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Between Wikimania and my trip to the Canadian Arctic before that, I am very traveled and wiki-evented out for the moment. I still might go but my schedule for this weekend makes it very unlikely. Daniel Case (talk) 19:49, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
