Images from previous cookouts:

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.  Fire restrictions have not been lifted this year.  Unless someone brings a portable gas stove that complies with fire restrictions, cooking and reheating of foods will not be available. 

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 or review the group safety and waiver pages.

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.
