Grilling & Games: Early Spring Edition

Spring is well and truly upon us. Let's get together for an early spring picnic at Veteran's Memorial Park in Parma!

In addition to having covered pavilions, this park boasts a popular disc golf course and tennis courts, as well as other more common amenities.

Get ready for some grill and games! This will be a stone soup event, so please bring along a dish to share, something to slap on the grill, or a snack or drink of some kind.

Weather

It's possible an event like this could be rained out, or simply "colded" out.  Should we expect rain, or the high for the day be estimated for below 50F, we'll reschedule.

Weather estimate as of[masked]: 68F - sunny

What to expect

There are a couple of large covered pavilions here, so we'll be parking it there while we eat.  In addition to just hanging out and enjoying the day together, we should have a number of different games going as well.  Expect to see:

  • Frisbee
  • Badminton
  • Speedminton
  • Bocce
  • Blongo Ball
  • Disc golf
  • Tennis

If you plan on bringing any additional outdoor games, drop a comment here and I'll add them to the list.

What to bring

While there's plenty of seating under the pavilions (6 picnic tables under each), you might consider bringing seating of your own.

Your outside games!  I'll be bringing mine, and I'd love to be exposed to more.

Activewear.  You may get sweaty today =)

Sunscreen.

Food! =)

    Can't make it. Car trouble.

    Let me know what is needed. Do they have grills at that park?

    April 21, 2013

    • Adam S.

      I took some time this morning to check that. There are two large, double sided charcoal grills: one near each pavilion. They are uncovered (as is typical for this kind of place) but in good repair. I'll still be bringing my smaller grill, too.

      Feel free to bring what you'd like. Some ideas:
      "Filler" items (like chips, desserts, or snacks) are always good. I'm bringing water, but I imagine soda (pop) would be appreciated by some. Sides (like a potato or macaroni salad) will work well too!

      April 21, 2013

    • Christine H.

      Thanks... I will bring some snacks and a dessert. What kind of pop does everyone drink? I don't usually drink pop but will bring some. I can also make a side but it needs to go on the grill, that is why I asked if they have grills.
