    Alright, sorry I'm late things were hectic at work last weekend so I'm sorry for not posting this sooner.

    What are some ideas for June?

    One of my sisters asked me the other day if we can go and see Cars. Now she only likes to go to movies when they are in a Drive in setting. So any takers on that? Or we can leave that for another month.

    Hmm. Drive-in could be fun. Maybe get some blankets and a cooler of beverage and a portable radio and sit outside as a group. I fondly remember drive-ins as a kid growing up when there were a lot of them, and I also have fond memories of a different kind involving drive-ins as a teenager.

    Good times.

    I'm in.

    (provided I'm home when we do it)

    I've never been to a drive in, I think it would be a lot of fun.

    Eh...I'm not a big fan of the drive in theater. Couple that with not being all too keen on seeing "Cars"...I think that I'll be skipping this one. Y'all have fun though!

    It's not the official activity. It was only a suggestion, I only brought it up because we did the drive in a few years ago and it seemed to be a successful event.

    What about a barbecue or something? (I mean, if not everyone wants to do the drive in.)

    Why not both? There's no rule saying we can't all get together more than once a month. I think they both sound like great ideas and both have potential for being a lot of fun.

    We can't even get people together once a month. Hell, we can't even get people to post on the forum!

    I'd be down for a BBQ. My schedule is usually pretty flexible, except for next Saturday.

    My month is open. Usually weekends work the best for me.

    Why don't we have the BBQ at someone's house or a park near the drive-in and then carpool or caravan to the movie? Just a suggestion. Assuming that weekends work best for most of us, how are the 17th and 24th looking for everyone? Those days are open for me as far as I know.

    Some parks that are somewhat near the drive in are Granger Park and West Valley Park. They both have an area that we can get together for a meal before the movie.

    I know there's a smaller park off of 3200 s but I don't remember the name of it.

    Any parks in mind?

    I'm not sure how crowded the parks are going to be because that's also the weekend of Deathfest so people might be parking for the fireworks show.

    Deathfest? What the hell?

    There's also Taylorsvile Park on 4700 S and Redwood. It's not to far to the drive in from there, for those that are going.

    Sorry it's west fest. Someone usually ends up dead there every year anyway so that's how it got it's name. Course that all happened when it was at Granger Park.

    oh I forgot about Taylorsville park.

    That's pretty funny. I forgot that someone usually gets shot there.

    Let's do Taylorsville Park, umm... I don't know the address off the top of my head but it's on 2700 West and just about 5600 South in Taylorsville.

    What time should we meet? And do you want to decide on what movie to watch now or when we get to the park?

    I forgot, there's a rec park and the actual park. I say we meet at Taylorsville Park, there's alot of shade so we should be good for that. I can bring the radio for the movie. Now do we want to do a BBQ or just bring your own food and sit and eat with everyone?


    So can I get a count of how many people are planning on attending?

    I vote for X-Men: The Last Stand.

    I'll be there.

    How about instead of BBQ or potluck, we just get KFC. I've been informed that there's a KFC near the park. That way we would have less food preparation to deal with. If not that, there's always pizza.
