We'll talk about it on Saturday.  We will be very pleased if you can offer some suggestions.  Hot dogs are boring, a braai using wood is a big palava with the smoke and all, and a gas braai is difficult to move about on account of its size.  We did get a quote from a fellow who does braais but he wanted R85 per person which is too much.  If you have, or can borrow a gas braai and have a tank full of gas, we will certainly manage the cooking and distribution.  There are a fair number of drinks and beers left over from our last event

Boerewors on an electric frying pan works great, and it's very portable. Easy to set up, clean and pack up. Obviously electricity would be needed though.
Sometimes I drink a glass of water... Just to surprise my liver.

Ok, I have a fairly large one.  Didn't think of that, thanks.  If we cook in the hall, the smell of cooking wors will make many people want to eat one.

you need to establish a food and beverage committee .. you need a poll to nominate and elect members to this committee .. you need the latest copy of Excell to list pros and cons of various foods as well as establishing a pricing model.. you need to apportion and advertising budget for the food service.
You need to hire 3 ladies with hairnets and no e coli to make the food , once agian a spreadsheet will come in handy to establish quantities
Thereafter a working committee has once again to be established to research pricing on the ingredients

After that , one needs a quantity surveyour to map out the plot the food stall is taking , and of course a qualified electrician and gas engineer needs to hook up the stall to a 17mw diesel generator.
An elected safety officer has to be on duty from 2 hours before and after the event

Or you could just approach the boy scouts to set up a food stall and run it....

By special request, these two LPs are offered, both in pristine condition, and original

The Gunther Kallman Choir - Elizabeth Serenade has had an offer of R 150,00
The Bles Bridges - Laat my lewe, Laat my lifie has yet to receive any offers, but the seller is still hopeful and was thinking of a forumite who is known to be partial to Bles Bridges, South Africa's "Platinumplaat" singer.  He renders such hits as "Bloedrooi Rose" and "Ek sal by jou staan" plus other sentimental pieces

There are another 200 LPs of various semi-known and unknown musicians,
PLUS - Two boxes of individual 78 rpm records
