Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who came out this year. I’d say the 6th Annual Voodoo Empire Backyard Bash was an amazing success. Dina walked away with the trophy, which is awesome. It was a pretty close contest, and there was a lot of amazing food! Plenty of amazing music too! I think next year we may have to experiment with signing up time slots. We have so many skilled DJs come out, and only so much time. We want everyone to be able to do their thing! If you haven’t seen the pictures from the bash yet, as always, they are up on my Flickr site.

I know it’s a long way away, but it’s never too early to start thinking ahead! We already know next year, the 7th Annual Voodoo Empire Backyard Bash will be on Saturday, September 1st. At least for the next couple of years we will be sticking to the Labour Day weekend. That way everyone who is in school will be free to attend. Plus it’s nice having a consistent annual timeframe to plan on. We will definitely be doing another contest too, that was really fun. What do you think? Another spicy food thing, or a new contest? We’ll be looking for your input next year!
