Some cooperators have been asking about barbecuing.
You are permitted to barbecue in an area behind the buildings
that does not block any cars.
Take extra special
care that nobody gets injured. Also, you must clean-up
when you are finished. Make sure the coals are completely
out before you dispose of them.
