I have some points to make here regarding GW meals:
1. Yes, we probably should get a truck to haul the stuff that is going to be
used in common at Gulf War. I really liked Mirrim's idea of "renting" space
out in the truck, XX dollars per square foot. That way we can allow
individuals to put stuff in the vehicle and perhaps utilize a van (like
Xene's, Bice's, etc.) for actually transporting bodies.
2. "Cells" - The idea behind this was to control how many people to cook
_for_, not how many could cook. Perhaps this is not what is needed. We do
need to find a way to serve approximately 100 people at the same time, in
the same location, without shackling several poor people to the kitchen to
do all the cleaning, preping, and serving of food.
Arabella has made a good point, if we do cells, then we have about 5
different "kitchens" going on at once. This was not what we were interested
in, if I understand it correctly. The hope is to combine resources so that
people do not have to do as much work to prepare meals. But we are also
talking about possible logistical nightmare!
Here is a suggested alternative:
I think we should combine the "cells" idea with the idea of "communal"
dining. First - only dinners would be communal. Everyone would contribute
SOMETHING to this. Each night, one of the "cells" could provide the main
entree, with the other cells providing side dishes/desserts/drinks, EXCEPT
the one cell who had CLEAN UP duty for that evening.
Then for breakfast and lunch (which are usually NOT cooking endeavors -
<sorry Crandal and Llwellyn) each cell could provide to its own members
their favorite foods, and where they want them arranged (some will need them
at the tourney fields, others might want a sandwich back at camp, others
might want to have ready-made for traveling around site, etc.)
Please pick this apart at your leisure. I am hoping that from this little
idea, perhaps better ones may follow.
