    I am bringing this thread over from our site at Bolt Bunker.com and would like to share it with you as Bolttalkers are always more than welcome at our annual HO event. (That's Home Opener, not the other thing you might be thinking...) What we would like to know for the cooks involved, is how many of you would be coming to our event, so we could get a head count and to determine how much food we will need to bring. Also welcome are any ideas for events that might be fun. We will have a framed Chargers picture being donated by SDRaiderH8R as a start.

    Home Opener!

    Before you know it, the home opener will be here. It was discussed and Ivan (Eat My Boltage) agreed to do the cooking for this event. Unless the menu changes, the main entree will be carne asada. It will most likely be the "carne of the gods" from Kennedy's Market in Escondido. Ivan is only asking that you put into the tip jar the paltry sum of 5 bucks per person. Wristbands will be issued to those who donate and they will be allowed to the all-you-can-eat taco offerings. Of course, we will also need things like tortillas, cheese, sour cream, cilantro, onions, and whatever fixings that are required, plus side dishes that will need to brought in by individuals for a family-style setting. As always, we need to know how many people are planning on attending, (so that we can determine how much meat we will need to purchase) as well as what food item (side dish) you may be bringing. Please don't bring any Scandahoovian meatballs as they are usually too small and fall through the grill, but anything else is fair game.

    Also, if you have any other ideas for the home opener, please feel free to express what you would like to see and post them here for discussion. Some of those ideas may include bringing in a DJ, activities, etc. So far, one of our members is donating a framed Chargers game day picture for a raffle. We may have more items for the raffle as the date draws nearer.

    We will also be taking donations for our personal Porta Potty fund, that is open to all of our sister website members and their guests. It is clean, equipped with toilet seat covers and a hand sink. We ask for 5 bucks per game. If you bring the wife and kids, we only ask for 5 bucks, believe me, that 5 dollars comes in handy on game day!

    Thanks, and GO BOLTS!!!

    Pointy :bolt:

    It's easy to do. Simply go over to the Boltbunker.com site, sign up unless you are already a member, and locate the "donate" button on the upper right side of the forums page. Let me know if you have any difficulties with that.

    Thanks,

    Pointy

    Flying in from Vegas (after a bachelor's party) early Sun morn for the game, I hope I can make it for the epic HO tailgater. I'll gladly pitch in for the carne if I can get there.

    I was sure I had signed up over there... I remember posting there and all. Yet I've just registered using the same handle. Was there a cull or something in that inactive members were dumped?. Just waiting on Greg to OK me now.

    It's almost here! Any other ideas or suggestions for the home opener? We haven't had too many ideas, would welcome some new ones. Someone mentioned bringing a pinata. Also, someone mentioned bringing some Chargers items and doing an auction.

Any other ideas would also be welcome.

    Thanks!

    If the label on the salad says it will feed 6 to 8 people, then buy 2. You can usually ask a clerk if one is available.

    Further Update:

    I found a place in town that does it's own work, (legal) and the pinata is on order, should be ready by Saturday. As some of you know, SDRaiderH8er is going to be auctioning off some great pictures that he photographed recently. I also have some great news. I have located and purchased a bottle of the new Chargers Legacy wine. I will be putting that up for auction as well. Listen up Doug, you might want to get this bottle and put an online bid for it. It is a 2008 vintage, Cabernate Sorebuniogn, has a nice kick to it...

    Rexy;

    Nice to see you back here! Since the theme is mainly Mexican food, and I haven't heard from Charger Chick yet, (Caesar Salad and Jell-O shooters) perhaps a pasta salad or whatever else you think that would be nice will do the job I think. What about a fruit salad or ambrosia?
    I also mentioned the situation to Greg over at BB, I don't think that there is a ban. I will check on that again.

    Thanks,
