September NWSFS Social At the Citrak's Near Olympia
Due to a family schedule conflict we won’t be able to attend the Portland Pirate Festival this year.  So, we’ll host the NWSFS Social at our home.
Please join NWSFS for a Social on Saturday September 18, 2010 at the home of Becky and Michael Citrak.  7701 Bobcat Dr SE, Olympia, WA, 98503 - 360.456.7441.  The social will begin around 5 PM and continue until around 10 PM, or whenever we get tired. 
Please let us know if you plan to attend (yeses and maybes), so we'll know if we have enough goodies.  Email to
Themed:  Stuffies!  (Stuffed Animals.) Bring your favorite, prizes for best stuffed animal costumes, most unusual and maybe other categories.  Though if you want to dress up as a large panda, well, as long as you can make it through the door.
We'll have some burgers and hot dogs, and a new grill (bought last year), and we suggest you bring anything else that you may want to grill.  As usual, this is a potluck, so bring your contribution of a main dish (occasionally have enough), side dish (rarely have enough), munchies (usually have enough), or dessert (often have enough, if there is such a thing as enough dessert).  
Extra credit will be awarded for themed foods. 
Bring your own beverages if you want something particular, although some basic beverages will be available.
We show themed movies in the rec room. 
NWSFS members are encouraged to attend, and non-members in the SF/Fannish community are welcome, as always. 
House is one level; one step to the courtyard and half a step at the front door.  Two step out back to the patio.  We have cats, (they will be locked up).  No smoking inside.  Parking on street.  No busses come close to the house.
