    • 2605 Weisman RD, SILVER SPRING, MD 20902

    Clint Sandford will be hosting at his home in Silver Spring. Please bring beer to share (home brew or commercial) and food. There will be a competition for sours.  

    Clint has a pool, so bring your swimwear and maybe a change of clothes.  NO GLASS in the backyard/pool and deck area. There will be plenty of plastic cups for your use in these areas. Feel free to bring your camp/portable chairs, there are some grassy areas where you can set up a spot to sit. 

    Also, Clint said he will park his Jeep on the front lawn.  If people want to arrive early they can park in the driveway and load stuff in through the side gate there (on the right hand side facing the house). The driveway can park at least two cars. Otherwise the best way to get to the backyard is through the left gate facing the house. Clint will put up signs. He will have two smoked whole chickens and kielbasa for the food contribution. Also a medium size cooler with ice. People are free to bring their coolers but space can quickly fill up. There should be plenty of street parking but they just ask for people not to block any driveways etc.
