KEEP ON GRILLING!
As everyone knows, recently we posted a Survey on the HDL Blog asking players their opinions about supporting the post-game tradition of “cooking Out”.
Here are results of Survey:
TITLE: POST GAME FOOD – YES or NO?
HOME TEAM SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR FOOD – 38.6% (22 votes)
I LOOK FORWARD TO POST GAME COOKOUTS – 35.09% (20 votes)
I AM ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO FOOD COST – 22.81% (13 votes)
Other: – 3.5% (2 votes)
I HAVE NO INTEREST IN HDL POST GAME COOKOUTS – 0% (0 votes)
Total Votes: 57
With an active HDL Roster of 65-70 members, getting a response from 57 people is a strong validation of the results. We thank you for your participation.
Now we need to work on our coordination on a weekly basis to avoid wasting of food. Following the preference to allow the scheduled Home Team bring something to cookout should work. The team managers should be the coordinator to tell a player their contribution is needed or could be too much. Let me point out, it is not how much someone contributes, a little bit goes a long way. I suggest only 2-4 players per team bring something each week. If we have a double header, that will mean we could have food to consume/share from 4-8 players. That is plenty.
Good items to have on menu:
Chicken wings, drummies, legs
Hot Dogs (max 3-4 packs) (Don’t forget the Buns)
Hamburgers – preferably the pre-patty packs.
Steak or ribs or BBQ is a special treat
Prepared food like Pizza is an easy contribution. We are fortunate to have Lost Pizza as one of our Sponsors who has provided us a good deal on Pizzas. So far, 3-4 large Pizzas is about right amount for a good post game item.
