Mid Atlantic Homeroast Gathering
Saturday October 25, 2008
Tenth Legion, VA
Allon sent me a whole bunch of suggestions for a get together awhile
back. I'll have to look for them and set a real agenda, etc. Let's
mark our calendars for the time and place: Saturday October 25, 2008
here at Tenth Legion, VA (a few miles south of New Market, VA) in the
Shenandoah Valley. The days and nights should still be mild enough for
camping should anyone want to stay the weekend. We have acres of open
pasture, a place for a bonfire Friday and/or Saturday night, room for
a carry-in meal, for sitting around talking and drinking coffee and
possibility of visiting our local small commercial roaster (Lucas
Roasting Co., LLC in nearby Broadway, VA).
I once made it from here to the Ford Theater in DC in two hours flat.
Two and a half to three hours is probably recommended. The leaves
should be in early autumn color which should make the drive extra nice
for city families. Of course leaves change in Rock Creek Park, so you
could just stay home :>)
In order to help us plan effectively I'd like to get a list of names,
number expected to be in your party and idea of a dish you'd like to
share with the group for a carry in light luncheon. (Stuff to go with
coffee). Perhaps someone could set that up on Google Documents?
Iif this is to become an annual event, I suggest that it float from
place to place. I am happy to host the first one, but would like to
see it move around. We will open our home to the homeroasting
community and will make our kitchen available for heating food items
carried from home in coolers, etc.
Hurricane date could be the following weekend.
I have one door prize already. More would be nice.
Suggestions welcome. Nothing is set in stone at this time.
Prepackaged, roasted & ground coffee,,,
Some of the worst ideas since sliced bread.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY (From A.Word.A.Day):
The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure when
the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them. -Patrick
Henry, revolutionary (1736-1799)
