  1. Yay! for adults only.

  2. Suggest that you talk to the church and the elementary school near BCRC to secure overflow parking.

  3. Will it be $15 for food plus $10 for beer as with past BCRC fundraisers? Or no beer this time around?

  4. Can't wait for the big event! Remember $5 for the special CUP! There will be beer and wine for folks 21 or over with appropriate ID who purchase the cup.

  5. Is 18 and up adult? My kids are all older but still live at home.
