Picnic at White Rock Lake

Hey! Anyone in for some fun in the sun? I was thinking of Frisbee and having a picnic at the lake.

Please bring a unique snack to share with everyone. Helpful if you post what you will likely bring in comments.

Please BYOB soda or otherwise.

As for me, I will bring some Vietnamese Egg rolls for the group.

Some interesting bits about T&P Hill at White Rock Lake

"Tee Pee" Hill, formerly Roxana Point - one of the highest points of land surrounding the park, is named for the Texas and Pacific Railway (T.& P.) clubhouse that stood here from 1925 until the 1940s, not, as some people think, because there was an Indian campground here (there wasn't)."

Also, about the boat house at T&P Hill. It's called the "Boomerang"

"The Boomerang is the beautiful 1930’s era boathouse at T & P Hill at White Rock Lake. The organization has restored the boathouse for rowing scull storage and launching..."

My cell number is [masked] if you guys have question.

We will meetup at The LOT (address is above) near White Rock lake at 5pm and head out to set a picnic area at the T&P Hill at 6 pm. Hope to see everyone there.

Note: Address for T&P Hill is 3240 W. Lawther, it may be hard to find us!! So I strongly suggest meeting at The Lot.

    Hi, everyone, I am so excited for the Picnic, but I will be late... I am waiting for my sister in the airport right now. Her flight from China landed at 4:15pm, but haven't come out yet. So I will go straight there right after. I am bringing pizza with me. One more thing want to make sure, is the address accurate/ updated on the meetup post?

    Hi everyone!
    Two quick things:
    1.) Please post in comments what potluck item you will bring tomorrow! If you're not sure exactly, please indicate if it will be a side dish, nibbles or dessert item. 2.) don't forget to bring your own water and other beverages.

    Looking forward to seeing you all!

    I still think White Rock Lake is better. It has many shaded areas and gazebos. At 6pm it gets cooler , especially after 7pm. Also a good time to enjoy sunset. I can suggest a place or places at the lake if needed. I like the downtown kludge warren park, too. However, it has some drawbacks: crowded; no shade; hard to find parking and parking costs there. White Rock.Lake is free and has plenty of space. I'm familiar with the area and would be more than happy to suggest a meeting spit. Just let me know. Thanks.
