In Alice in Wonderland tradition, we're having an unbirthday party for my wife, Angelica, who should be nominated for sainthood for putting up with me. This will happen rain or shine. We recently put up a gazebo on the back deck, complete with a tiki bar! We also have regulation horseshoe pits.

If you need to do some minor wrenching (spark plugs are OK), that's fine.

Date: Saturday, August 5th, 2006
Time: 9:00 AM until ???
Location: 16 Shamrock Circle, Windsor, CT

I love the variety we get when everyone brings a dish, so please post what you'll be bringing. I'll compile the list in this post. I will have some soda and mixed drinks available.

If you're coming from a far distance and would like to break up the drive, you are welcome to come in Friday evening and/or stay until Sunday. Please PM me so we can make arrangements. There are many hotels within 5 minutes of my house, and I have a spare bedroom as well as a few air mattresses.

No gifts are necessary, just show up and have a good time!

Food list:
Brownies (HamsterV)
Burgers and bunz (DeeBee)
Jambalaya (TooRoundTDI)
Corn & salad (Varkias)
Taco salad (Zippy--yes, you're coming :))

ooOOoo.. first one to respond. I'll definitely pay a visit :)

I can bring dessert-like material I guess, although since I'm that close, it might make sense for me to pick up anything perishable you might want/need though - let me know what kind of stuff might fit the bill..

It's right across the street from the gym where I have a membership but don't go to anywhere near often enough.

It's Connecticut - you can just about throw a blanket over the whole state. ;)

Looks like the 5th will be loaded with CT GTG's. If all the parts arrive I'm likely to be doing my turbo install that day - maybe there will be a Windsor-Andover shuttle running. Ice cream un-birthday cake at one end, and turbo wrenching at the other.

I have no idea what you're talking about, and I think I'm OK with that.

Family are welcome, of course.

I saw photos, you really don't want to know about the "cake".

Anyway, I'm thinking about some kind of vegatable matter, perhaps corn on the cob and salad of somekind.

the little inner voice *really* tells me I shouldn't ask.. but like I've said before, it's like looking at the proverbial train wreck - you know you shouldn't but just can't help yourself... :p

photos, anyone? :D I believe a minimal amount of elaboration is in order...

LOL!!! :eek: :cool: Where on earth did your roommate's friend find such a... um.. unique cake tin?

Not that it would be a fun thing to have lying around the kitchen or anything like that whatsoever :p :D

I regret missing out on the impromptu GTG's more and more every time I see pics of all of your (plural) debauchery...

Providence is a pleasant drive, about an hour and 15 minutes away. Take 6 to 101, 101 to 44, 44 to 219, 219 to 20, take the Old County Rd. exit. That'll put you about 4 miles away from my house.

Updated food list.

Oh yes. I know the 6-101-44 trek quite well - I'm still working at UConn through the fall. On average, I can make it from my house on the east side to Storrs in 70 minutes. Personal best is currently 61 minutes.

Whether or not I can come depends entirely on MrStink's call schedule - I'll look into it and keep you posted.

I'll be there w/ my wife and two little kids (5 and 2). I'll bring tortilla chips and a 7-layer dip. I guess you don't want to do another clutch swap this weekend :)

I don't think my ribs will be fully healed from the last one.

come on, where's your sense of adventure? how are you going to help install my DRW if you can't even handle another measly clutch job at a GTG at your house?

:D :D
