About the event
's regular night for July 2007 would have put the meeting on Mon 2 July -- two days before Independence Day. We decided that a Summer Barbecue would be more fun. "Let's all get together, bring some food, and just enjoy the company of friends and colleagues. " Tech discussions were optional, albeit probably inevitable. Anyone associated with CentraLUG
was welcome to attend, provided they signed-up first, and brought some kind of edible item for the party. BYOB. Children are welcome.
7 PM on a Monday night was kind of a weird time for a BBQ, so we moved things to a different day.
UPDATED Sun 24 June: We had planning on Sunday, 1 July, but then someone pointed out that that is an NHIS NASCAR Race Day. That made our venue unreachable right in the middle of our planned time. Yikes! So our BBQ was rescheduled to Sunday, 15 July. Same time, just two weeks later. No traffic jams this time.
This took the place of the regular CentraLUG
meetings for July. It was, however, open to all, and not just
kindly offered up Miles Smith Farm in Loudon, NH for the venue (thanks, Bruce!). If you've never been to Bruce's farm, it's a beautiful spot, with a rustic old farm house and barn, hilly fields, and an incredible view. The "farm" part isn't just a name -- it's an actual, working farm, with cows and horses, and farm products for sale. Don't let that scare you away, though -- Bruce is a certified geek, so electricity and WiFi Internet are readily available.
In spite of thunder, lightning, and rain to the south of the farm, the farm stayed rather dry until about 5ish. BTW: The farm affords a good vantage point to watch both nature's and man's pyrotechnics (July 4th displays from four surrounding towns can be seen from the comfort of the house).
