Summer Sun Celebration Picnic

Let's celebrate the longest day of the year with a pot luck picnic in the park. We'll have some nice food as well as some pony themed games and activities. If you are planning on bringing something be sure to make a comment so we can start coordinating on what needs to be brought.

We will be gathering around the park's amphitheater, a nice open grassy area where we can spread out and there is even a stage! A few people should try and arrive early to secure a nice spot, but the event will be going through the afternoon, so don't feel in a rush to get there.

 

Things we need.

*Blankets

*Chairs

*Drinks

*Snacks

*Side Dishes

*Entrees

*Dessert

*Plates, cups, napkins, and utensils.

*Ponies!

 

(Things being brought)

* Melissa is planning on bringing fudge brownies, a few small bags of chips, a few bottles of condiments.

* Pony Chalk Drawing

* Pony themed Card and Board Games

* Pin The Tail On The Pony

* Capture The Flag

    Overall, I had fun, but I do have a critique. Initially, the amphitheater seemed like a good place to do this, and for the most part, it was, but the lack of shade quickly became problematic. There was no place for those who were sitting and talking to do so without getting roasted, and for that matter, I'm sure the people who were actually doing stuff would have liked to take a rest in the shade once in awhile. Moreover, the food got kind of...bleh after a short time in the direct sunlight. Stuff got hot and moist, melty, or just plain too warm to really enjoy properly.
    I would suggest meeting where we did for the End of Summer Picnic if we decide to have another picnic in Washington Park this summer, but if we really want to meet at the amphitheater again, we should probably see if we can set up a shelter. As for keeping things cool, I do have insulated lunch bags and styrofoam containers we could put ice in, and I might be able to bring them next time we picnic.

      Also, the other corner of the amphitheater was starting to get a good chunk of shade when I arrived.

    I decided, I'm bringing cupcakes & carrots. The cupcakes are orange & have orange flavoring just as a warning! Sadly there won't be many as I am also going to be bringing carrots & some other items. I want to be able to carry everything although if I can I might also make some yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting.

    I confirmed it, my friend who brought the Luna & Celestia flags from last year will bring them again this year so Capture the Flag is on! This time I think we should find a good area where the flags can be hidden & so can the people who are hunting the flag down. The way it was done last year was too much like the way we played the game in school & most people were too chicken to go to the other side. lol hey I accidentally made a joke.

    Another thing, improv. I'm bringing a hat & a list of games. If you want to bring some props for this I would be happy. I want to get a lot of people involved. If you'd like to play instead of be apart of the audience that is welcome.

      So I'm just bringing the orange cupcakes (sorry Auntie that it had to be that way). No time to make the yellow ones. The carrots will be raw because I don't have anything to keep them warm in.

      For improv I could not find my Mare Do Well hat so instead we will be using the tiny Applejack hat for scenes from a hat. It will be interesting.

      Improv is pretty much finished. We won't be doing some games due to not having a microphone but I have many lined up so don't worry.

    I'll be bringing a bucket of chalk, some snacks (animal crackers, animal cookies, and chex mix). I'm also bringing buttons to sell!

    June 21, 2013

    The exact location is technically in the middle of the Japanese Gardens at the moment. I assume this is not where we will be meeting up?

    June 13, 2013

    • Master C.

      We are meeting at the amphitheater.

      June 13, 2013

    • Master C.

      It is right next to the rose garden.

  • William S.

    What should I bring?

    June 10, 2013

    • Master C.

      Snacks, drinks, side-dish, entree, or dessert.

      June 13, 2013

  • Taba L.

    So excited for this. I'll think of something to make.

    June 5, 2013

  • Dragryphon

    Good to see Clockworks and my ideas panned out!

    June 5, 2013

  • Abby

    We should definitely try Capture the Flag again. I'll ask my friend if she still has the same flags from last year.

    As for food it depends on what I either find at the store or what I'm in the mood of making. If I can make pumpkin bread I'd love to bring it.
