DFWCoR Annual Picnic

CAMPING INFO: Now through May 10, please pre-pay to reserve your camping sites for Friday, Friday and Saturday, or Saturday night at: http://metroplexatheists.org/Community/SpringPicnic2013/tabid/124/Default.aspx

The price is $25/night, which includes one site, two parking spaces, water, electricity (bring an outdoor extension cord), a picnic table, and a fire pit. There is a limit of eight people per site. You will also have to pay the $7/person daily park entrance fee. No refunds will be available, because we pay the park in advance for our block of sites.

For further rules and details about Cedar Hill State Park, visit: http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/state-parks/cedar-hill

PICNIC INFO: This annual event is a potluck, so please bring a dish to share! It is also BYOB. The park rules prohibit the public consumption of alcohol. The picnic officially starts at 10:00, but we generally start eating at 11:00 a.m. You will have to pay the $7/person daily park entrance fee.

SPECIAL YO-YO DEMO AND LESSON: Dale Oliver, 1992 World Yo-yo Champion, will be hosting a fun-filled event for everyone at 1:00 p.m.! Ages 5 through 95 are welcome! Loaner yo-yos will be available. You may also purchase a special, limited-edition, Metroplex Atheist ball-bearing yo-yo for $10 (which includes a $4 donation to the MAs); please bring cash.

    Haven't been here before so I'm not sure about the set up, but if there's space and interest I've packed some games (Apples-to-Apples, Fluxx, etc.)

    Jenelle and I will be selling water and tea to benefit the Grandbury, TX and Moore, OK victims. Each beverage will be $1. You pay a $7 entrance fee, so consider that remaining $3 a way to help others and stay hydrated. :)
