Cooking for Rydal Trip, 28th-30th October 2011

This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for the CUHWC trip to Rydal Hall Youth Centre in the Lake District this (28th-30th October) weekend. All crockery, cutlery, utensils, pots and pans are provided. The club will supply cooking oil.

Click edit at the top to change the text (you'll need to be logged in to your account the website first - click here to register if you don't have one). You can either suggest a meal idea or join one of the existing ones and you're obviously also welcome to sort yourself out (move your name to 'Independent'). Please remove your name from the "Not yet signed-up for meal" list too once you're in a group or have decided to cook alone. The person who suggests the meal is responsible for arranging the ingredients - everyone else in the group should bring money on the trip to pay for their share, and expect to help with the preparation and washing up.

Meal suggestions by Tuesday evening. Finalise groups by Wednesday night so the person suggesting the meal knows how much they have to buy and has a couple of days to do the shopping.

    Is this signing up for the punch, or are only people who sign up here allowed to have fun? :-) MJ
    I think everyone can have fun, especially as those signed up to have 'fun' will provide entertainment for the rest.
