My wantlist is rather finicky too, so I figured this way it'd work out better for people :) I'm looking forward to that game already :frolic:

Also, I don't know what there will be for food at my grandma's, so if anyone wants to bring food feel free :good: I'm not much of a cook, but I'll probably bake cookies or cake or something. Does anyone have any food allergies? Preferences?

As for actual food places, about 10 minutes away from my grandma's house, there's a McDonald's, Burger King, Subway, a Chinese place I'm not very familiar with, Pizza Pit, and Pizza Hut. :awake:

Glacia, do you have enough space for a potluck? I make a mean quiche! (mmm, bacon!) I can also make it without bacon, but I'm afraid vegan is out. It's eggs, cream, and cheese. It's anti-vegan.
Thanks so much to Calico_Star for her beautiful work on my Avatar!

Yep, there's plenty of space at my grandma's house :)  We used to host family gatherings there of 20+ people.

June 15th looks like it's winning so far, but the other June weekends are close :) I think it's pretty safe to say this meet will be sometime in June.

Does anyone have any food allergies/preferences by the way? :awake: Myself, I have no food allergies, but I am a picky eater :yikes: I have a strong preference for meat, breads, chips, dairy (cheese <3 ) and sweets ;) I avoid nuts, and veggies, but don't mind some fruits.

I'm starting to get the hang of making snickerdoodles, so I could make some of those for the meet, or cupcakes (probably white confetti cake mix). I could bring some packages of popcorn too.

I have some allergies but not the point I cannot be around foods--just don't eat them. So only certain fruits, veggies and nuts work for me. I do not eat cows, pigs etc or fishy stuff.
Poulty is delicious. Bread is a must. This is Wisco so there better be a LOT of cheese. :biggrin:

I do not have any food allergies. I make delicious bread! :) Lately I've been using up the crappy beer people left at our house in beer bread to get rid of it! I'm also rather decent at making sweets seems to run in the family for baking. Though we usually end up with an abundance of sweets at our pony meets! I think I'll just bring a loaf of bread and honey with :) if I feel creative I'll bring another dish to pass.

My only food needs will be what this pesky new life inside me decides it wants. Yesterday I was looking for Easter candy, and it appears that my pregnant belly does not want chocolate. I'm not sure whose child this is, but it can't me MINE!

I'm still thinking quiche, though I might make it without bacon if enough people don't like bacon. It's still awesome without it, and cheaper to make!

I also learned a recipe for an awesome appetizer, it also has cheese, so it's Wisconsin approved. Is it legal to import cheese over the state lines, or do I have to buy my cheese in WI? LOL!

And June is perfect for me- everything is planted and growing, and though there are obviously weeds to be pulled, it's not quite like planting time. Maybe the spinach will be ready by then, but there shouldn't be too much for my poor husband to deal with all by himself.

June 15 is sounding really good to me.  I agree about the planting season being busy, as we usually plant a large garden.  Although it might not be as big this year because I usually do most of the gardening, and by the time harvest comes I'll have a pretty big belly :)

Mmmm Quiche is sounding really good to me! 

No food allergies here, although alcohol, coffee, and any raw meats is off my list.  I am not a baker, but I have a recipe for a really good veggie/chip dip (with cheese :)  ).  And my spring salad I usually bring to pot lucks is always a hit.
 Considering I have a little ways to drive most of what I bring will have to be able to travel well.

Also I'm wondering about whats available for nearby hotels, because my husband and son will be coming with me, mostly just for the ride.  It's kinda a mini vacation for them too because while I'm at the fair, they stay at the hotel and swim!  So the sooner a date is set the better :)

I personally don't drink alcohol, but I have no problem if people bring it as long as they're sober when they leave :)

I'm pretty sure there aren't any hotels in Oregon, so I'd look for ones in Madison. I know there's a Sheraton and a Day's Inn, both near one of the main highways in Madison (Highway 12), and each of them is (roughly) ~15 minutes from my grandma's house depending on traffic. I'd personally avoid ones that are 'downtown' or super close to the capitol, because there are a mess of 1-way streets there and it can be a pain to navigate sometimes.

My grandma lives on County Road B, which is right off of County Road MM on one end, and Highway 51 on the other. County Road MM connects to Highway 14 in a few places too, and both 14 and 51 connect to Highway 12 :awake:

No problem :)

Also, just a reminder for people to vote if they haven't yet (and poke other nearby pony people to vote if they can come :silly: Especially if they aren't so active and may not know about the meet yet) so we can get a date settled~ :good:
