Alright guys, here's the tentative plan. Historical Park in Olympia/Tumwater. They have very nice BBQ and picnic facilities. Also, it's got a great playground for kids, so let's bring them out if we can. I also have a slightly evil itch to look into one of the parks around capitol lake. I'm going to do some scouting this week to see if they have BBQ pits, but if we could make of of those work, that would get us some great public educating opportunities. I mean, I've said hi to the Gov. a couple times walking around that lake! Now wouldn't that be fun? So give me some input on what works for you guys. If you would rather we just have a relaxed hang out deal, we can deffinately do that. But I think potentially we could have some real fun with this. I'll throw some links to the parks I'm looking at so you can see where they are located.


This one is called Heritage park. It might work great. It's right there in downtown Olympia.

Here's the final plan

Alright guys, here's the plan. July the 8th, at Marathon park, at noon. Techo, if you want to list the stuff that you have that keep from last time, let's get a list going of what we'll need to suppiment.

So here's the final info:
12 noon, 8 July 2012
Marathon Park
https://maps.google.com/maps?q=marat...m&z=15&iwloc=A
Location A, B is just a bus stop on the side of the road.
I'll try and get there earlier if I can to make sure we have a grill. There are restrooms on site, and the park is on Capitol Lake. If the weather is nice, it'll be a very nice setting.

It might be a good idea to find out who manages the park and put a reservation in with them.

It's a city park, and they only do first come first served. But it shouldn't be a problem, it usually isn't crowded.

LOL Don't know if it is my computer or what, but when I click that link, it keeps taking me to 32120 Maravat France..

May want to call the City and see if there are any Events taking place there, it is available for Booking. I followed one of the links that came up, and in the features section, it specifically noted "Events".
