    At the last gathering it was decided to make our July meeting the family friendly sort of thing FF likes. Soo, we decided to have the much talked about cook out. It will of course, be the third Sunday in July. What we need to know is, would the afternoon or evening be more convienent for people?

    Oh, the location you ask? Well as not to burden any one person as host and disaster area status for their house, we decided on a public park. Walnut Grove Park, at roughly 150th/Q St, was selected in a highly democratic election, the results of which are still classified and in their third recount. It is a fairly large park, with tons of trees and shade and picnic areas. Well suited to our needs.

    So, as stated before, this will be a whole family kinda thing. So bring the kids, if you want.

    So please start giving your suggestions on how to make this even better. As of right now its BYOF. Unless we can think up a way to make it otherwise.

    Sounds fun. I might be able to show up, if you don't mind my bringing along the kids I'm baby-sitting for that weekend. I'll have to talk to their parents and see if it's okay. ^_^.

    Oh, and even if I don't go, I can give directions to anyone who needs them (seeing as how Walnut Grove is just blocks from my house). Millard can be kind of confusing if you're not sure where you're going.

    If we can't do the cook-out, maybe we can get together for something else. I hate to see our July meeting go down the drain.

    C'mon, Marximus. You can't spend ALL day moving. You gotta take a break sometime. Anyhoo, I have to work til 5 on Saturday & will probably be off on Sunday so I'm up for it. I live just mere blocks from Memeorial Park, so we could meet over there too.

    Well heres a suggestion.....since the cook-out idea seems pretty much still-born, if you want, you can come hang at my place Sunday evening. We'll get some pizza and drinkage, watch some Fan films and movies, play some games....just like the old days, lol. Just let me know....pm for directions.

    Well... I couldn't make a Sunday evening shindig (nor do I think my parents would let me hang out at someone's house whom they didn't know. So, I'm still up for a Sunday afternoon cookout. But, go with the majority. ^_^.

    Let's see, your place will have air-conditioning, cold beverages in the fridge, pizza, & entertainment system, sounds like a plan. I will need the address though.
