So a lot of people on the Colorado thread have talked about getting together to learn this and that about cooking and preserving food. I looked in to it and was thinking because we are all over the state I might select a neutral location in the center that we could meet up. I live in Highlands Ranch and the rec centers here have rooms for rent with kitchens. Now a room rental for 4 hours is $100 with a $10 clean up fee. I was thinking if enough of us are interested we could talk about doing this some time. If there is just 5 of us it is $22 if there is 10 then it is $11. We could do this at someones home but I was thinking about all the work to get it clean before and after, the stress of hosting, and lets face it we are all strangers on the Internet. This is a nice neutral location, with a large kitchen in a public place that is completely sterile and they will clean up after us! What are your thoughts? Does anyone like the idea? If anyone has any better ideas let me know.
