I bring a grill and charcoal and every one else brings what they want to cook on the grill, for example, hotdogs, hamburgers, and brauts. Then, we do a little male and female bonding. We talk about what went on during the week, and what is wrong with each other’s cars or how they are going to run. Then, if one person has a problem with their car, we help that person out.
