winner, winner chicken dinner


There were lines for food at the GV engine and hose chicken BBQ Thursday night. The secret is out.

Rain delayed the finish of the birds and patrons were lined up waiting for the finale. I’d suggest a line for "pre paid" and those who have not yet paid.

Lots of people seemed to have done the smart thing and reserved thier meals. This might not be a bad idea, I know organizations like the Legion only sell so many and give out tickets to reduce the amount of wasteor unsold birds.

The FD might be able to anticipate the level of interest if they know they have 150 reservations and planned to cook 175 halves. Could help everyone because the chickens go fast.

And…awesome as always.



Mettowee Street was closed off temporarily Thursday afternoon and for those who wondered it was for NYSEG to install a replacement telephone poll.
