We already have our reservations, have wanted to attend a Hammer in for so long and this one looks like an awful lot of fun!
Sorry I'm so late getting back on this.
There will be a hamburger plate available for Sat. lunch. Provided at cost by caterer/cook. I will need a head count before the end of this week....sort of an RSVP. If you RSVP make sure you get a meal ticket from one of the ladies. No-Tickets go to back of line and hope for left overs.
We also will be having a chili dinner Friday night and need a head count for that as well. Nominal charge.
