    VCDL Picnic in Newport News - Sept 10th, 2011

    Hello all, I finally was able to reserve a shelter for the VCDL picnic in Newport News. The date is September 10th and the address of the picnic shelter is:

    100 City Farm Road
    Newport News, Virginia 23602
    (757) 886-7912
    nnparks.com‎

    I guess about 1100 hours would be a good time to start. Does that work for everybody?

    I hope everybody will come out and have a good time. To volunteer to bring something just put your name beside what you are going to bring and repost. That way everybody will know what is still needed. I know that I didn't put everything on the list, so, if you think of something that should be on the list, just add it then repost the whole thing.


    Hope that it is a good day and that everybody has a good time.

    Should 50 be enough? Last year I brought 100 hamburger buns with many left over.

    45acpforme is right. 50 hot dogs/buns is probably enough.

    Let's make this a sticky post.

    Ron, can you edit your OP to keep everything upto date?

    Question

    Seems like this has sort of stalled. The 10th is the wife's B-day and we are coming. I haven't discussed what we are bringing with her as yet. Would 1 large bag of charcoal be enough? Even though I don't use charcoal starter fluid (I use a starter chimney) I'll spring for that too.

    Maybe we need some type of entertainment. :-)

    Can we get Skidmark to play the banjo or Grapeshot the harmonica?

    Or maybe celebrity appearances by Skidmark or User to have a pre-trial pep rally.

    Am trying to arrange being there as I so enjoy the nearness to the City Farm - brings a tear to my eyes with all of the memories of DOC.

    Indeed this could be the last great outing (pep rally) before Surry - maybe I can talk Skid into doing our Frick and Frak routine.

    I'm up for doing the routine, but I need to know who I will be - Frick or Frack? I guess that means I'll be chauffeuring Grapeshot, so we can rehearse and work out detals on the roles on the way there.

    I'll bring 2 dozen hamburgers + buns. They should be thawed by the time I get there. I'l also spring for the charcoal lighter.

    Will we be visited by the Park Ranger and his camera this time? Or did he learn his lesson last time?

    stay safe.

    I'm a witness (w/recorders and camera) for Skid when he ventures out beyond the limit of his yard. My instructions are simple, "Don't let him out of your sight." You might say that I am my brother's keeper.

    Will bring sodas, diet sodas - probably 8 to 10 of the 2 liter bottles mixed + cups and a chest for ice.

    If no one else elects to bring ice, we can run out and pick up some after we check in - will be there early.

    Where is the Yorktown crew? The silence is deafening.

    I'd show up but Skidmark might be naughty and try to make me into a grease spot, hehe.

    Will not attend...

    Unfortunately, I'll be in CT over the weekend for a company business meeting. Otherwise, I would certainly be there. Sorry, Ron...

    Not likely, but I have no doubt that Skid would have some very well documented points to make.

    Those that fear open discussion will learn nothing new.

    Come on out and enjoy.

    If you show up I'll fill you in on the backstory of the nickname. But only if you are willing to venture out of your bunker (yes, I do remember stuff like that a whole lot better than some folks think I can remember my name).

    And as for being naughty - nope! Not me. I just keep a list of all the little girls who are.

    stay safe.

    updated list

    I think I have the list up to date for now. trying to do this with my 19mo. old grandson on my lap and he's desperately trying to hammer on the keys. fun, but distracting. Anyway, if anybody wants to add something just add it to this list and copy and paste etc. We only have a week left, so let's get our friends and neighbors involved and make this a fun time. :-D
