I was thinking along the same lines!
Actually, usually the parties are done Saturday night, since not everyone arrives by Friday evening, and the Lemons staff often arrive only on Saturday morning
I'm not sure what 3PM is up to, but they often organize something also, for Saturday night, and are hugely successful, with super fun party, after the Saturday race...something I always look forward to!
And eating while broke, is fun too...lifts the spirits
Although maybe Friday is easier, since the person/team organizing is not too stressed about their car that just blew up in the last hour of Saturday night...
Either way, I'm in. Wifey might be able to drop by with meatballs in a crock pot, and or I can drop by Walmart and grab some salads.
Booze usually goes really fast, so often it is BYOB (that way, each person is responsible for their own level of inebriation!)
