As with all VegasUnderworld events, there is no charge to attend or participate, but since this is a cookout/potluck everyone is expected to contribute supplies and food item(s). Lunch begins at noon, but arrive as early as you'd like.
So there won't be any confusion, a potluck meal is where all parties bring a food dish to be added to a shared buffet. There will be a fire provided for cooking and warming foods. This will be a noon lunch. Please, take that into consideration for cooking, reheating, and preparation times.
Everyone is invited to this cookout. If you'd like to bring guests, feel free as long as we get an accurate count. If you're bringing guests, please make sure they get a link to this page and read the entire page for details.
There will be no mine exploration involved. No exploration equipment will be needed. Because this will be an above ground social event, there will be no children or pet restrictions, but we do ask that you control both.
There will be shooting at this event, but participation is not required. If you'd like to shoot, please bring your own ammunition, firearms, and hearing and eye safety.
Please, send an email with how many will be in your party and a list of items you'll be bringing. As the date approaches, I'll post up a list of known items so everyone will know what is needed.
