Message about 2009 DC Hungarian Pig Feast

Dear All,

1. Thank you for all of those who sent their payments. So far we have 24 paying registered guests. We tentatively shoot for 80 guests & plan on buying a full pig this time. Please note that your place is only secured when your payment clears.

2. If we don't get 80 guests by the end of this week, we will announce the event on the HAF list and if we are still short, on the Unicum list. You can secure your reservation now, before those announcements (our experience is that once the event is announced on Unicum we fill the cap in hours). You are welcome to invite your friends from eVite, it is open, at this time.

3. We could still use additional liverwurst stuffing apparatus and other help. Anyone with any relevant experience and/or hardware please email me.

The organizers

Dear All,

We invite you to join us in our 2009 DC Hungarian Pig Feast ("Disznotor"). First held in 2002, the DC Disznotor has become popular in past years!

As you notice, this time we send eVite invitations. This allows people to sign up on the internet. Also, the registration fee ($20) payment is linked. In the past we allowed mailed checks and cash payments. From 2009 we ask you to use PayPal only. We understand this might mean inconvenience to some, but we find that it makes the entire event's organization more efficient.

PLEASE USE THE PAYPAL LINK TO MAKE $20/GUEST PAYMENT. IF YOU ARE PAYING FOR MULTIPLE GUESTS IN YOUR EVITE REPLY LIST ALL THE NAMES OF PEOPLE YOU ARE PAYING FOR.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR REGISTRATION IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL YOU SENT THE PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL TO Z@ZNEURO.NET.

BTW, registration fee. If we end up with surplus and it is going to be less than $5/guest, we use it for Disznotor related costs (such as a gift to Pista Bacsi and/or toward next year's event). However, if the surplus will be greater than $5, this year we give you options about your share of the surplus:
1. Have the money returned to you by PayPal;
2. Let the money go into an account, for future related costs (including gift to Pista Bacsi & family; used toward the budget of Disznotor 2010; or toward a similar event in the early summer e.g. Fish Soup);
3. Donate the surplus to the Hungarian America Foundation (http://www.hungarianamerica.com/).

This year we are going to take the teams more seriously again... We ask you to let us know which team you prefer to be on. We plan on setting up the teams in advance, so everyone will know what to do from the start. Here are the team options:
1. Fried liver/Sult maj
2. Brain/Velo
3. Sausage/Kolbasz
4. Liverwurst/Hurka
5. Roast pork/Sult hus (pecsenye)
6. Pork stew/Porkolt
7. Pork soup/Korhely leves
8. Pork cabbage/Toros kaposzta
9. Pork meat balls/Fasirt
10. Fried Bacon/Teperto
11. Cooked Bacon/Abalt szalonna
12. Mulled Wine/Forralt bor/ital
13. Cleaning Squad/Takaritas
14. Disco/music/entertainment

IN YOUR EVITE REPLY PLEASE INCLUDE 3 THINGS:
1. THE FULL NAME OF GUEST(S) YOU PAID FOR.
2. WHICH OF THE ABOVE 3 OPTIONS YOU CHOOSE RE: SURPLUS (IF >$5).
3. WHICH TEAM YOU (AND OTHERS IN YOUR PARTY) WANT TO BE ON.
