**would I need say, a watermelon, perhaps served separately?

Would appreciate any tips to make this go as smooth as possible.......THANKS!!!

Since it is midafternoon, you are probably OK on the meat, but you might consider making and freezing another 5 pounds, just in case.

I would probably double the veggies, dip, and fruits, or at least definitely add the watermelon.

You will only need about 4 gallons of beans.

Have a good time and congratulations.
