General Info

Date: Friday 5 October, 2006 (Rain date 6 October)

Time: 4:00 PM. We would like to start a bit earlier this year, serve food by 6:30 PM, and have many of the children-oriented (Piñata and Fireworks) activities end by 7:30 PM.

Where: Greg and Mona Anderson's home


Themes: The New England Harvest, Canadian Thanksgiving, and Chocolate


Food: Two turkeys, supplemented with hamburgers, vegetarian burgers, and dogs


Donations: Please make a $10 donation to help with the cost of renting a sound system, buying turkeys, keg, etc. Please pass donations along to Kathy Tebo. Thanks!


Lab Assignments: If no one from your lab will be able to attend please let Dave Wagner know so that we don't end up missing cups, eating utensils, condiments, etc. Likewise if only 1 or 2 people from your clan will be attending, cut back on non-essential assigned items; conversely, if a large number of people from your group plan on coming, please bring more than assigned.


Inviting Others: Given the short notice and the likelihood of conflicts, attendance will suffer somewhat. This year, let's encourage attendance from friends in the UConn community, EEB undergrads, and others of our ilk.
