Well, make *what* happen?

Dan isn't in for an NYC-based shabbatone, so are you talking about a CLE-based one? If so, all it takes is Dan + anyone else. No min.
I'd prob be in for a Niagara Falls shabbaton, but I'm not organizing that.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I think a bigger issue would be the food. Don't really find price mistakes from caterers. Unless whoever wants in on DO contributes with something.

I can get a hookup, but don't know how well sushi will travel to Niagara. Other food will last better.

What good is having a hookup if i can't hookup people.

I understand that. Was more along the lines of chipping down for catered food, or having people make/bring something.

But then you have the whole issue of "whose hasgacha is the food under" and people not "trusting" other DDF'ers kitchens etc.

I think we would have to vote on that, but then it would come down to "I am only coming if......"

Definitely would have to order.

With the ridiculous hashgacha discussions had on DDF, this DO would never happen in a bajillion years if there was a potluck DO.

For sure (and I don't think that's necessarily a negative)

Shabbos @TheOhel DO?

I can get us a house and food is free under a good hashkacha no mishichist worries even ;)

Just saying it may actually work. Who here hasn't wanted to spend shabbos at a graveyard?


@CBS/SGF do I have approval? :P

Not a negative, just having a caterer will not be cheap ( and i know how cost efficient DDF'ers try to be).

I doubt I can commit to much unless it's happening in CLE, in which case I'd be happy to organize.
I'd be in for that as well.

But you're probably the only one.

Count the Batchys in if we can make this happen in the next 2-3 weeks. And no, we don't need a place to stay. :D
