Michigan area get-together Sept 18th! Ohio and Indiana Invited

Would you be interested in a BBQ around the 14th of August? A couple of us are talking, and thought we'd invite all the Michigan shoppers over. We'd like to meet you, and get to know you. The BBQ would be in the Grand Rapids area. If this works, let us know! E-mail me or ShanefromMi for more info, or to express your interest.
This date is a Saturday, about 3 weeks from now. (Shane, if I'm missing anything, let me know!)

I would even think about making the drive to west side of the state, but I'm a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding on August 14th. I hope that I'll have a chance to meet everyone when there is another event planned!

It is going to be at my house - I live in Marne which is about 10 minutes northwest of Grand Rapids. Yes, families are included (my 3 children will be there!) I run a daycare so I have plenty of indoor/outdoor toys to keep everyone busy. I figured it would be picnic style. We'll provide the meat and condiments, everyone can bring their owns drinks.

I can't wait to meet all of you!!

If someone wants to bring a side, they're more than welcome to. :-)
And hope it doesn't rain!!

Hey Shane- I wonder..if we talk about mystery shopping, those who are coming from a small distance, would the mileage be allowed to be written off as a business expense? After all, it'd be "work" related! ;-)

I'm going to try to make it - I'll probably be bringing my kids too. Should we all bring a dish to pass?
