This is going to be w-a-a-a-a-y bigger than I thought!
I wonder where WALMART's regular shoppers are going to park during this Major Event...
Like it matters!
Let's get down to business:

Hi, Myra and Leo
Spring starts on November 10th
We'll expect to see you at the Rally
Please take the Northern Route- if you keep a sharp lookout and swerve just in time you've got a good chance of bagging a moose for the BBQ...

I was hoping you'd be coming a day early to handle all that...though I think The Chef pretty much expresses our sentiments re permits (see below)
How's the Jackrabbit Poaching Project going down there in Phoenix?
Chef One-Nighter would like a general count if possible...

Good idea, Navychaps!
Except for the "returning it" part....
I think our friend Yellowreef addresses that pretty well-see below.
Glad to hear you'll be joining us too!
Will you be bringing the rest of The U.S. Navy?
Do remember that WALMART asked us to give them 24hrs notice if we want the riverside parking lot flooded to draft depth!

Hi, Jon and Sue
"Paying for it"?
I see you're new to this...
We'll have a nice long talk when you get to the Rally!
Will you have room to bring enough Georgia Peaches to go around?
The ever-popular "Georgia Peach Brandy
" is awfully convenient

I couldn't have stated our "Return Policy" better myself, Yellowreef!

Haven't you started yet?
You'll need extra time if you're going to swing by The Stockyards in Chicago and "liberate" a couple of steers for the BBQ.
Get a move on, Bub!

Say, Canadian Member-
How about bringing a couple of Lumberjacks and maybe one or two Mounties with?
That would take care of our Firewood/Security concerns...

Now about the entertainment. I have a friend who is the regional meat manager of a large grocery chain. She is also a first rate meat cutter. I'm thinking she could put on quite the show carving up whatever we find.
Sorry, I'm going to have to nix the mahi. I'm think of more local flavors. We'll keep a sharp eye on the drive over and maybe we can find a nice big elk laying by the side of the road. Yum!
And sorry I don't have any hidden pockets, but I do have some really big purses!
Well, you're the chef, Chef!
But in my opinion, asphalt's "oily aftertaste" doesn't "kill the flavor"- it IS the flavor
I guess Phil will have to bring his backhoe attachment too...We can stack the slabs as they come out and light them off to see by after dark.
I expect you're right about the Mahi- but since folks are volunteering to bring Regional Delicacies from their homeports (see above), let's hang fire on that decision in case some of our Hawaiian members show up with a creelfull!
Per your friend the Performing Butcheress:
I think she'd be a marvelous asset at our little get together!
Note: despite any protests from the boys we may get, do tell her that she needn't work in her bikini top...
Lastly, don't worry about your lack of pockets!
With any luck The Australian Contingent will bring a kangaroo that can come along on your "foraging expeditions" inside WALMART
That's all for now, Folks!
Looking forward to seeing you all in Omak!
