Our Big Fat (Free) (Critical) Thinkers Picnic

  • Dec 11, 2011 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Another Fun Appeal to the Picnicing Thinkers:

From the desk of Picnic Planner Carrie:

"Twas a couple weeks before Christmas
And all through the land
Christians and just about everyone else
Were gearing up for the legal holiday, by default, so grand.

When out on the Internet

There arose such a clatter
Meet Ups throughout the Bay exclaimed:
"How 'bout a huge gathering with record numbers to shatter.

Now Atheists, now Inquirers, now Skeptics, now Thinkers
On Philosophers, on Agnostics, on Talkers, on Globe Coffee Drinkers.

To the Upper Tampa Bay Park
on December 11, 12-4
There will be a big, fat picnic
A gathering of like-minded thinkers galore."

Hence, we implore the Thinkers to think again about coming to our picnic on December 11th where there will be:

A plethora of food that you can contribute to by going to the link http://www.luckypotluck.com/cgi-bin/display...

The discussion of the Freud/Jung film nor the counseling table will not occur since the film will not be here until late January.

A whole bunch of nature stuff at the park of our choice including canoe and kayak rentals (there are a lot of kayakers in our community).

A game table

Something for the kids hopefully designed by the kids.

An initiative to get The Thinkers to join as many of our other groups as possible. 

Hopefully Still Mr Egalitarian and Your Head Dork

--------------------------------------------------------------

Keep in mind that park entrance, just like all park entrances nowadays, is $2; and potluck sign-up is http://www.luckypotluck.com/cgi-bin/display...





Directions: look for sign for group picnicking. We are the first left after this sign, pavilion called "Pine." There is plenty of parking. Additionally, you can ask for the park map at the entrance, it's free.

    This was probably my 1st meetup; what a pleasure to hear casual conversation that is centered on an "idea" and not merely the weather.

    I hope to get to some of the monthly meetings, and meet y'all again. Sandra

    Great group of thinkers and tinkers. And I'm adding SausageKing and Protector of the Fire (for us evolutionaries) to Dale's lengthy list of honorifics.

    It was a treat having good food and fine companions, children and up. Good conversations made the time pass too quickly.

    Jon and everyone, I'm so very sorry. I accidentally clicked on location change, put it back right away, but meetup site sent notification to everyone right away, without asking me to do it. Whoever wrote the code for meetup, was a lousy programmer. Again, my apologies. Hope to see everyone in the park on Sunday.

    Anna, I'm totally flummoxed. I just received three meet-up emails stating new locations for the picnic: upper TB park, Whiskey Joe's and Carrollwood CC. Which is the last revision and final destination?

    Sandra, once you enter the park, look for sign for group picnicking. We are going to be at the first left after this sign, pavilion called "Pine."
