Notes on April 2009 Solar Barbecues

  • Let's call them picnics, not barbecues. People think of singeing meat, which is not likely at most of these.
    It's OK to have them during a break like they were this spring break, but make sure the postcards get to teachers before break. oops.
    Have pictures of solar picnics on the page and the postcard, helping create an image the event.
    Resist formalizing the event with invited speakers, agenda, etc. But realize that this will mean that some people won't come, with no "draw."
