The club will provide steak and potatoes and some refreshments. This is a potluck style of event so please bring a salad, side or dessert. This results in the best buffet ever as the selection is great. Please also bring a chair and if you have a favorite beverage, then bring that as well. Please RSVP to John to ensure we have enough steaks and let us know what you are bringing.
