Hi, Just wanted to say -Count me in---Don't know for sure if I am going to take the Scoot, will depend on the weather.
You can also count me in for bringing with me about 30 Brownies. Do you need a check now or can we pay upon arrival?
Looking forward to meeting and making some new friends. Do you have the name & Phone #s for some of the motels close by so I can make a reservation. Any of them have a lounge or restaurant?---Hot Tub---

We also have some money now toward the band....On the gender side...ladies you are way outdoing the men....only one man has paid......but you ladies are coming through...so thank you ladies for that...and come on guys.....

Hello, one and all! This is a list of what we have pledged so far:
20 #'s mashed potatoes
pies [# unknown]
turkey enchiladas [friday]
sandwich supplies [enough]
refried beans [friday]
As you can see we have PLENTY of entrees for Thursday, and enough turkey sandwiches for leftovers galore! Also, the menu for Friday will be of a south-of-the-border theme~ so anything along those lines would be very helpful! Breakfasts are impromptu as a function of varying rise times, and will consist of coffee [did you find the big pot yet, Karen?], and either a trip to the local diner or a turkey sandwich. Lunches will also be a "wing-it" affair due to day rides and/or the strength of your hangover.
We have about 30 confirmed attendees, but have received much-needed support money from only two people! If you're coming, please don't wait til the last minute- please help! Send your payment to: Karen~ aka "mountaintrouble"
Ok, we have a problem. I HATE dealing with money issues, but have a crisis here.
I posted a while ago about a band and port a potties. I got a lot of people emailing me saying go for it. They would help with costs... Total cost $1,180.00 for the band for two nights and port a potties for all four days, which I also said in my previous post.
We figured cost per person, and ask for everyone to send $15 per day that you were staying. We figured that would cover cost of band, port a potties, and any food needed to fill out for two meals a day from what is being brought...not a bad price...even for me. I mean, where can you stay with a bunch of other singles, with enterainment for two nights for that price, and eat two good meals a day on top of that?
This party started small and has turned into a large event....Which I am really excited about, but cannot afford to fund. It simply outgrew us.
We have one wonderful lady who has agreed to pay the band up front so that they would book. They required 1/2 down before they would book.
But, other than that, I have only received a check for $60 and one for $15, plus the $60 I put in for my own share, and nothing else.
Do you really want the band? Should I cancel them for a night? I need to know ASAP so that we can be fair to them.
I really have to resolve this soon, please....ASAP.
Hey Joel....really hope you can make it! I sent directions to your email...
We have a couple of groups coming in on Wednesday, so if that works for you ....with the distance....feel free to come then too. Hope you find someone to ride over with...
HELLO I'M IN CARSON CITY NEVADA. CAN SOMEONE SEND ME DIRECTIONS AND I CAN DECIDE IF I CAN COME. NEED TO PLAN DAYS OFF . I WILL RSVP SOON IF I AM GOING. ARE THERE STORES NEAR BY TO MAYBE PURCHASE ITEMS NEEDED, RATHER THAN TRY TO BRING ON BIKE.IS THERE ANYONE FROM RENO/CARSON AREA GOING? WANNA RIDE TOGETHER?
I have been talking to these guys for about a week, and they have agreed to play for us. They had to cancel a gig to play us, but were willing...since we sound like so much fun....and I know one of the members of the band.....(do not know if that helped)! Look um up yourselves.....see what you think!
And for anyone who is worried, your port a potties will be here....so you are covered....Reserved a double with sink last week.

mountaintrouble write: Hey Rocky, are you holding out on us...What else is coming? What Scott listed is what we know is coming for sure. It is all I have been told offically.... Oh, I did recieve an email this am and more pies are coming as well as a deep fryer for a turkey...so add peanut oil to that list of needed stuff.

Hi Girly Girl!!
you know I'l help any way I can!! just let me know....we will have the cage crammed by the time we come up there...Were picking up Angel and her stuff on the way!!!
albyneau write: Well okay, Squirrel- for the time being I'll have to take your word on that; as I just inherited this project mere hours before that post. If you are referring to the pies you mentioned in your E to MountainTrouble, I intentionally left that out for the time being until I could contact you personally to find out exactly how many pies you've got to go around. As I said- this is turning into an EVENT, and we need to deal with specifics, Bob! Accurate information is essential here to the successful planning of this event. So if you have something more to share with me please do so OFF the forum as previously mentioned. I took this on as a favor, and checking emails is far less time-consuming for me than continually checking the forums.
Thank you for your consideration, Scott
Hi Scott I sent you an e-mail!
can you give us an idea of how many are coming to the shindig? I've been out of town and need to get back up to speed!!

Rocky on a fly by!!!!
