Cog Collective Summer Picnic - Saturday August 8th

Post by Sammy » Tue Jul 28, 2015 8:45 pm

The summer picnic is less than two weeks away, mark August 8th on your calendar and come hang out and BBQ! Friends and family are welcome, all details are below. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

Picnic Details:

When: Saturday, August 8th 11AM-5PM
Where: Laurelhurst Park, Site C

This picnic will be the culmination of the summer painting challenge. Please bring your finished painting projects for final judging and prizes. We will also have a lunch BBQ, some warmachine tables for those interested in an outdoor game, and general lawn games.

The official BBQ will be from 12-2PM, but as long as there's food and someone to grill it we'll keep the party rolling. This will be a potluck event, please bring an appropriate dish to share. I'm not going to micro manage food sign-ups, but please don't bring a single fun sized bag of chips and plan on eating 12 hamburgers (this breaks the potluck social contract).

On Alcohol:
The park permit allows for personal BYOB bottled and canned beer and wine. This means that individuals can bring their own beverages and consume them. We cannot bring kegs, liquor, or serve and sell beverages in any capacity. So grab a six pack or a case of something moderately priced and let's have fun! Please be adults and make appropriate driving plans if you plan to consume alcohol at the event. Each individual is responsible for themselves.

Recommended Potluck Food/Items to bring:
Hamburger Patties
Hotdogs
Buns (Hamburger/Hotdog)
Napkins/paper towels
Corn on the Cob
Side Dishes
Chips
Condiments (Ketchup, Mayo, Relish, Mustard, Salt, Pepper, Butter)
Water
Soda
Large Garbage Bag
Coolers
Ice
Picnic Blankets
Lawn Chairs
Sunscreen
Hats
Lawn Games (Note - we cannot put any stakes into the ground or tie to trees, so no volleyball nets)

If you know you're going to bring a specific item and want to let everyone know, please respond on this thread so we can track it. I will be following up with individuals for specific items that we'll need (grills, wargaming tabletops, etc). If anyone has any questions about the event feel free to PM.

Park Address:
3756 SE Oak St, Portland, OR 97214
