Pardon any redundancy ... but hopefully these are the final details for Saturday's outing.
The group has expanded in size, as History San Jose said it was okay to bring some of you in under another member's membership.
So, Madhu and Lorraine, when you park or walk into the park, please tell them you are guests of Martha Wallace.
Anybody else who is not carpooling with me, tell them you are guests of Kathleen Jarvis.
I haven't been to this type event at the park before, so am not 100% sure of the layout, but the plan is to depart from 600 East Weddell Drive #46, Sunnyvale 94089, at 5:00 on Saturday afternoon. To limit the number of cars parking and cluttering the streets later, it would be great if as many as possible go in my car; I can take 6 additional passengers. If you live in San Jose but can suggest a good spot for a few more of us to meet up (I'll probably be picking up a friend in Willow Glen), let me know -- it would be nice to avoid trying to fill up the Spartan Stadium/Kelley Park area with any more cars than necessary. When we get there we'll try to get set up at a table and tie up a balloon or something; but in case that doesn't work out, call me at[masked] to find us.
Ron and I are bringing homemade ice cream for everybody in addition to what we're going to grill for ourselves, and our own beverages. If everybody could bring whatever you want to cook for yourself and some sort of side dish, salad or bread to share, as well as your own beverages, we ought to have a wonderful meal. We plan on taking a Quiddler (card game played with words) and if you have outdoor games, they might be nice ways to pass the time until dark. We'll hope for a nice long walk through Kelley Park unless it's just more crowded than imaginable.
See you soon!
