    Adding another option:

    Helpings Catering by UMOM:
    https://www.umom.org/get-involved/helpings/helpingscatering/

    Haven't broken down the options, but a boxed lunch will be similar to Brown Bear, or if we order sandwich platters and sides it will be cheaper.

    Plus every salad or sandwich purchased will provide a homeless child school supplies or dinner for a night. :rockon:

    All the info is on the link above.

    Hi J.P.,

    A breakdown would be helpful for approx. 75 people...the club is really trying to save money this year. My breakdown was targeting choices which clearly reflect the higher costs of ribs and/or catering. The ultimate goal is to provide a good meal at the lowest price. I hope this helps. In addition, increased volunteering will in fact lower costs.

    Thank you...Tom

    Bottom line: I we buy all the stuff at Costco and cook it ourselves...we would save a minimum of $200.00.

    For the UMOM catering, we would be looking at sandwiches and sides for 75 people including delivery for $500 ($6.60 a head, so it is more than the hamburgers and hot dogs, but it's delivered and no volunteers required.)

    Disposable plates, cutlery & serving utensils provided at no additional cost. Beverages would not be included.

    Not sure if sandwiches would be as big of a hit with the crowd as Hamburgers and Hot Dogs.

    Unfortunately, I am going to be unable to attend Rendezvous this year, but fortunately it's because my 2nd son will be delivered that week. :punk:

    Specifically, what type of sandwiches are we talking about?

    I too, will not be able to attend this year's Rendezvous due to prior family obligations.

    Congrats on your soon to be new addition to your family.

    Really,

    Why have you been holding out?

    I should be there for the 2016 Rendezvous...do you still use them or do you want to donate them to SDS?

    I usually make; Strawberry, Blackberry, Blueberry, apple, and peach....I wanted to start making gluetin free for Ronnie and his family too. so that would be 5 or 6.

    Last year we made home-made ice cream too.

    I thought a few folks said they'd make cobbler out there but not sure.
