    * DebbieFood: Everything all-natural hand-made, with a banquet of rich cookies brownies bars and other baked goods

    Back during the Troll Lord days of the '00s (Lake Geneva Game Conventions), Gary & Gail hosted a wonderful open house in Lake Geneva. This is an attempt to continue that tradition, still in Walworth County but a little further out. (Pretty close, in a county of 575 square miles. We found this Victorian castaway out here, and just had to save her.)

    As always, we'll be socializing and playing occasional games. Feel free to bring favorite games. Expect to be occasionally photographed.

    Families & kids welcome. We have two small, friendly dogs (lovers not fighters) and a caged parrot who eats fingers & pencils. The big change from last year: Razz graduated last fall, so dog #2 is a 3-month old puppy with a high Cute score. (Tullamore is a good uncle.)

    FOOD & BEV: We'll have snacks, various non-alcoholic beverages (diet & sugared), and dinner. Also featuring Debbie's amazing baked goods. Donations encouraged; please consider $5 for all that. We 'break even' every year, visitors have been great and donations covered the tab. Thanks much!

    ALCOHOL: We will not be serving alcohol, not even beer, so BYO. The local convenience store DOES carry a variety of good local beers, including New Glarus and Point. Please don't distribute (legal issues), and don't give it to underagers.

    TOBACCO USE will be confined to outdoors (back deck and front porch), and we'll air out the place before the party. ;>

    DRUGS are strongly discouraged. Get real, and/or don't do them here.

    COORDINATION (rides times etc): We leave that to you. Just come when you can, leave when you must, and try to give a friend a ride. But please DO post here with a name, how many, and roughly when, just for my last-minute panic stretch.

    PARKING: On the lawns, with signage Please enter by the driveway and either turn right (front or side lawn) or keep going to the back (side yard & orchard area).

    ATTACHMENT: Please download this PDF for general guidelines, maps to guide your journey, and all other information you'll need. (Ignore the traps indicated, those were found by the last group, TPK, very sad.)

    Litta and Tracey (a.k.a Katsin and Glyston) plan on being there about 4pm. Sadly, Traycie (the younger one) can't make it this year due to Army detail so Deb will have one less soldier in the kitchen. Love and thanks!

    I am RSVPing for myself. I am trying to talk Harold Johnson into going. I will say I am RSVPing for him, too. However, he is just a maybe, as he has to go to work in the middle of the night, and might decide sleep is more important. ;)
