This year the golf tournament is July 17th of 2015. Participants are well-fed. This is a great venue for fancy cookies and gluten-free treats.

This year we are going to try something different and we're reaching out for non-food items. Small crafts or other items. Since this is our first time at this it will be learning experience. For those of you who do provide items I'm soliciting input on price point and ideas. Unlike Pax we need to be very flexible and mobile at the golf tournament since space, location and audience varies greatly from year to year. We have operated off a golf cart and at a fixed table.

One thing that we would really like to try is to supply an auction item at each hole (18 total for non-golf folks) . If you are interested in participating please let me know in this thread or by private message. I would appreciate the items and a description (materials, time, unique features to build value) by July 10th. Thank you!

This is a great idea. Definitely need to figure out a new plan like this if we're going to continue to have a presence at this event.

Little late to the party but I'm interested in making an item or two. Can i ask are you thinking game themed items or general geek? Are you looking at a certain size.

I have 3/4 yard of retro gaming fabric to make into a throw pillow. Two yards of creeper from Minecraft fabric I could make into a kids apron & pot holder or adult apron. I own many cross stitch patterns to make into art or geeky door hangers. I own a large amount of fleece in many colors since I got this bright idea three PAXs ago to make geek hats and ran out of time after making four hats.

Those all sound great. I'm looking forward to seeing all of this.

I've been working on a cross stitch for this but I'm not sure if I'll finish in time. If not it'll become desert bus or something.

Hi Emi,

Were you planning on attending day of? I'm still waiting on details from Child's Play. It's at the same location so I know we're super close to your work.

No worries on the cross stitch. I didn't manage to get half of my ideas together.

I work next door (on 116th) but I do have to work that day. I'm able to pop over probably during lunch and maybe here and there in the morning, but I can't take off.

The humidity was a killer on the dough in my kitchen, so I was only able to get a small amount of lemon sugar cookies done. :/

If I'm not too tired when the last bunch comes out of the oven we will do candied bacon.

Beautiful day out there. Went down to buy some cookies. Kintyre is doing a spectacular job! Unsurprisingly the chocolate chip pan cookies are delicious, but the candied bacon is a nice surprise. Thank you for that!

We raised a total of $247. There were definitely some people who were happy to see us. A couple of the enforcers mentioned they should bake for us. I completely agreed and encouraged that. Still too many cookies. I need to tweak my batch sizes and not dip anything in chocolate. The one cookie we sold out of was the peanut butter chocolate chip bacon. It will be interesting to see Child's Play recap on this and how they feel about it.
