Bonfire Party In Colorado!

October 21, 2008

Its time for the 8th Annual Bonfire Party!
Hosted by

Where?: Debbie Glines’ House:
14885 Weld County Rd 74
Eaton, Colorado 80615

When?: Saturday Nov 15th.
Starts when the Sun goes down. Ends when you are too tired to stand in the cold next to a warm fire.

Bring?: It’s a potluck so bring something to share (you pick!) Also bring chairs, warm clothes and comfortable shoes.

Why?: Last Bonfire we had over 250 Deaf/Hard of Hearing/Interpreters/ASL Students and friends/family members who like to hang out with fun people that communicate using Sign Language. (Please leave your voices at home)

Directions: Take I25 North to Ft Collins- at the first exit, head East on Harmony Rd Exit- keep heading East (approx 15 miles)- you will go thru a couple stop signs- Harmony becomes Weld County Rd 74 (magically somewhere)- notice the cross streets. They count up from WCR 20, 25, etc. You will pass a small town called Severance. You have 3 more miles to go. Just keep heading East. I’m on the North West corner of WCR 31 (so if you pass that rd you have gone too far!)

Look to your left you will see the fire, cars and people out in the pasture. I will be providing all the hot chocolate and SMORES you can eat.

If you are bringing children, please keep an eye on them. Also absolutely NO alcohol allowed!

If you have any questions please email or call me. If you don’t know who I am, I’m the owner/interpreter coordinator of 24 HOUR Sign Language Services. (If you ever need an interpreter, we are available 24 hrs a day 7 days a week! )

We need volunteers to help us control the parking, clean the area, and keep everyone safe.

    A friend forwarded the invitation. We are in the Black Hills of SD and I know that some of us will be visiting. It’s a pretty well known bonfire. Hope to see you there!

    “Please leave your voices at home”…. my boyfriend is hearing but he is learning sign language; will you slap him on the wrist if he tries to talk to other hearing people when he doesn’t understand something in sign?

    Will do, Jodi! October? You must be drinking White Beer in the Netherlands again!

    Radical, if your boyfriend is in my ASL class, he won’t pass if he attempts to voice to other hearies.

    November date is going to be tough for some people.

    Usually people in retail business can’t request time off in November and December because of holiday shopping preparation, especially Black Friday (the day after the Thanksgiving). I know several deaf people in retail business can’t come to the bonfire.

    Also, I coach high school football and November is a bad time because of state playoffs for football and volleyball. Luckily, I can come to the bonfire. My team is not in playoffs this year.

    Unfortunately, my girlfriend cannot come because she has to work that night. If my girlfriend knows the bonfire schedule well in advance, she could ask the time off. It is too difficult to get a weekend off especially if you work in a hospital.

    I think we should schedule bonfire in October from now on… Easier for many people who are coaching and who work in retail business. And the weather in October is usually warmer than November which is easier for families with small kids. And easier for college kids who have to be prepared for final exams. And please announce the bonfire in August – easier for people who work on weekends.

    Just my two cents…

    Yes, it makes sense to me, too. I agree with Yo.

    Yo, Who cares? Not too many people would come in October because it was Homecoming game, Halloween parties, and midterm exam. I went to the bonfire party last year in the month of November and the party was sucessful. This announcement has been posted on October 21, you have a plenty time to make a decision to come or not. About 4 or 5 years ago the bonfire party was in Feburary the freezing month but the party was sucessful. If you complain, don’t come. *rolling eyes*

    “Make a decision” means to call in sick so I could come?
