    Food

    Dear veteran rally rats,

    This will be my first MOA rally. I plan to camp & am wondering about the food situation - should I pack some food and a campstove or are there plenty of vendors with reasonably priced, reasonably digestible grub?

    Will there be high grade "coffee snob" coffee for my morning fix? I'm starting to jones just thinking about it.

    Everyone just packs wonder bread, peanut butter, and cheap jelly for rallies . But seriously, there will be vendors and there's eats nearby. However, I have no clue about real coffee (it is Ohio after all ), so what I do is bring my plastic french press and some good stuff, then bum/buy hot water off a vendor. If there is good coffee, then no worries, but I'm covered.
    That help? I'm sure Sue will be filling us in as the date approaches on what will be on site, and there's already info on what's nearby.

    Greg, thanks for the info.

    I think I'll take your advice & bring my press and some beans.
    It's a dirty little habit, but it's mine! See you there.

    There actually is a Coffee Committee... so even that should be covered. There will be lots of food, I know the last time I was in Lima, Sue, Brian, and I were diligently testing and comparing food vendors. There are going to be some good ones.

    I'm bringing some cheese and beer sticks(spicy salty sausage that encourages drinking beer) just in case I have a withdrawal.

    Food (and coffee) Vendors

    Hi all ---

    We will have 12 food vendors on-site, from the local service groups to the guy who makes ice cream with his John Deere engine... You can get everything from fried chicken and fresh sandwiches, to deep fried road-kill on a stick.

    (Just checking to see if you are paying attention)

    The Yankee beemers have offered to prepare your Rally coffee which will be FREE, made in 100-cup percolators. For folks with refined coffee tastes, we also have an expresso / cappucino vendor.

    something for everything, I do believe............

    Yes! All my food & caffeine deprivation anxieties have been allayed.

    Just keep me away from MARK11LTs beer sausages because, baby, I don't need no encouragin'

    See you all there. I'm going to go now and sharpen my tent pegs.
