4 guys and friends pulled it off again
The SWARM was at it again, even though, our DJ was home for surgery and another had to go to a wedding. Lots of folks stepped up to help, making rumballs, letting us barrow a generator as we had a mishap with one Friday morning. Billington turns out is an old time
radio engineer/DJ and the New England Night Flying mafia had some other talented young guys. Kade helped us sort out our sound equipment and got the tunes going. Flying Foot Doctor came through with the delicious West Palm Beach Florida oranges, GUSS did a great solo act coming up with a big batch of his jambalaya, and our Husband & Wife team from Jackson MI supplied the party with a monster helping of homemade corn relish. Our resident Jet Pilot/flight instructor had one of his ex flight students & friend flying in from Florida on a time building cross country flight to give us a very welcome hand, Jordan & Pau did a great job keeping the tunes and popcorn flowing and doing any other job needed.
A pleasant surprise was the gentleman presenting us with 400 delicious and tasty jello shots. Thanks to Empaire/Gaui and Jack for the 2 kegs they sent on down for the party.
125 lb of chicken wings, 150 corn dogs, 5 gallons of Arnold Palmer ice tea, 5-10 gallons of corn relish & jambalaya, 200 ears of cooler corn, 15 trays of rumballs, 2 big pans of iced orange quarter, 4 iced watermelons cut into slices. 35 batches of popcorn.
Anyway thanks to all that came, enjoyed and thanks for the cash donations. We had fun, no big problems and we took a vote after and agreed, we are up for it again in 2017. See you next year, FRIDAY NIGHT AT IRCHA WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN.
Pass the rumballs.
Thanks to IRCHA & AMA for some to the kind words about the party.
As for the Honda generator, it was under that quilted cover next to a nearby running generator. It wasn't running but the heat built up under that cover and this is what happened. Live and learn, don't cover them and don't let them get near each other.
If you have more pictures of the fun you had at the SWARM PARTY please add them for all to share.
