Well, that depends on you... if everyone tried say 5 items, you'd need to provide five small servings, right? Most people cook more or eat less, so there's food left over at most potlucks. If you make something everyone want to try (shrimp, say) then you'll want to make more... but if everyone does that, we'll be there for days eating the leftovers.... hmmm.

Personally, I make chili with about 7 lbs of meat (beef & bacon); it almost always disappears completely, but a big bowl of red is popular. Of course, I make that ahead of time so I can concentrate on happy hour rather than cooking...

My rule of thumb for a potluck is:

How much of this would fill up myself and everyone with me if this were all we had to eat for dinner? Then double that amount.

Yup.. and I noticed that there are several main course meals coming out this year so that will help feed the lineup. The shrimp wont fill you up... its just tasty and Neil keeps me on my toes..

No, not everyone at the potluck! Hee hee. Just what everyone in your own "We're bringing X to the potluck" group, which in your case would be just you, or you and J.

YUP, you betcha I do......I'm camped right next to you. I will not forget the rally that I missed the shrimp! The following Casini rally my wife, daughter and son brought me servings. I love my family.

Zlee, don't worry 'bout it. With groups this large no one can eat a portion of each dish. (Some WILL try!). The trick is to scope the offerings and go for the one(s) that you want to try. Problem is that all the food arrives at the same time leaving little time and space....it get's crowded at the food line.... to accomplish this. BTW y'all we always need extra folding tables to place all the buffet offerings out on. Does Cassini have banquet tables available?

Uhm.. you better get in line early

or try some spam?
So we need to hope that about 14 people have shrimp allergies, and also put a minimum age on those that can enjoy those cute shrimpies.

We could mix the two ingredients, skewer shrimp & SPAM together, thus eliminating about 60% of the potential diners.

I'll have two small folding tables with me, if that helps. (My sewing tables!)

I'm certain here will be plenty of campsite tables to comander for dining but they make poor 'serving' tables. So folding tables will be welcome. Some are similar so 'marker' your name on the bottom.

Neil;
I seem to remember that they had tables, but last year they had a big pancake breakfast going on in the club house Sunday AM and they had to set up the night before.

If I can figure out how/where to carry some 6 foot tables I will bring a couple, always have a little 3 ft. one in the moho.

Maybe we can use the hood of Vinnie's Jeep as a table, unless he has somehting more functional to bring...

We are going to be camping there again next weekend- I'll ask about tables.
