Topic: Reno-Fernley Chili & Movie Nights
The Lemons Fire Department… in conjunction with Team 31, Inc... proudly (okay, how about with great reluctance) announces “CHILI and a MOVIE”
Yes, that’s right… you’re personally invited to enjoy a tasty bowl of Firehouse Chili while enjoying a great night at the movies… and it’s all for a good cause! The movie is free but we’re asking a $3 donation for the chili (2 bowls for $5). Proceeds will be donated to the Santa Clara Valley Medical Burn Center (San Jose, CA) – a non-profit hospital serving fire fighters and fire burn victims. This burn center is the primary burn facility for all of Northern California. The whole Fire Department thing is part of our Lemons theme and… well, it’s just a damn good cause! If you see someone without a bowl of chili… buy’em one… then make them buy you a beer!
We’re planning a showing of LeMans, Grand Prix, The Italian Job (the ORIGINAL version, of course!), and/or It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (how appropriate!). And, if the chili is just right, we’ll put on Blazing Saddles! We have other titles available, so let us know what movies sounds the best.
When: Friday, 22 May and Saturday, 23 May
Where: At the track… Reno-Fernley… in the #31 pit space.
What Time: The chili will start being served around 5:00pm both nights (until we run out) and the movie will start when it’s dark enough to see the outdoor screen. BYOB and a lawn chair… or throw a pillow on the ground. Chili includes onions, cheese, crackers, bowl and spoon. Ahhh, hell... we'll throw the heartburn in for free!!!
If our car survives Reno and our team is accepted at the upcoming West Coast events, we’ll be doing this again… with movies like The Racers, Winning, Bullitt, On Any Sunday, The Blues Brothers, The Great Race or videos of the 2001-2004 British Touring Car Championships, the 1968-1969-1998-1999-2000 24 Hours of LeMans. Tell us what you’d like to see…
All the best -
