Do you think a BBQ for 200+ people would be too much work? Would it be easier to rent the park and just order trays of food from a local restaurant? Maybe they would sell it at some kind of discount because it's for charity. I know in our area there are a number of Italian restaurants that do things like large trays of chicken marsala, pasta and garlic bread. There are also places that make those huge 5 ft sandwiches that could be served easily with chips and salad. Or there are caterers who will come in and cook the BBQ for you with burgers and hot dogs and will also take care of clean up. I know this would add more of a cost for everyone but it might be worth looking into just so you and other local DISers aren't stressing about making food, setting up, etc. If I were local I would offer to help but we're going to be on our way back from vacationing in Maine and would have no way of making anything to bring. I could pick something up at a nearby grocery store if someone could point me in the right direction.

Otherwise, I think maybe the restaurant would be a good choice since no one will have to worry about set up, cooking and clean up. And we won't have to worry about what to do if it rains...

Mentioned on another thread fire stations usually have a hall available or an AMF bowling alley might have space.

I spoke with the GM at Best Buy Marlborough MA and all we need is GKTW to supply their Non-Profit Tax ID number and he will donate. Not sure exactly what product ... so I'm open to pitching ideas for BBY donations. I working on the Tax ID but if anyone knows the ID send it along. So any ideas from the group?

I have received the Tax ID from Dave P! Thank you!

I know there are several local catering services like Firefly's BBQ that offer a delivery service to just about any location, but I'm not sure how costly that can get...it also may be a problem if they require money upfront.

Just found this thread after bouncing back to the boards for the first time in a bit.

Though it's a bit far from NYC, I would love to be a part of this so count me in! I'm hoping to get my friend from RI to come as well!

I'll be done with the school year at that point so I can definitely help with anything!

Cristen!

What will be the hours for the post-movie DIS meet, and could that be attended separately?

I ask because this event coincides with our town's July 4th parade at 12:30pm and we are involved with that. (Our town holds the parade the on Sat regardless of when July 4th is.)

Conceivably we could attend a DIS meet afterwards depending on the hours.

This is a great idea. We've been dying to get to a meet for years now, but have never seemed to be able to make it thus far.

I can happily say that we are in - Dave and Beth

To those staying over, what hotels are you looking at?

I'm torn between staying at the Coco Key Resort or trying to stay slightly closer to Boston.

I'm also planning to visit Boston a bit, as well as the Adams National Historical site in Quincy so any place convenient to that would be awesome.
