Hiking,…, and BBQ at Devil's Lake

When: Sun, Aug 10 at 10:00am

Where: Will meet up at Lakeview Community Park (at 10:00 am) to carpool. We should be at Devil's lake by 11:00 am with plenty time to enjoy a sunny day (based on the 10-day forecasts form today). We should be back in Madison before 5:00 pm.

Wheels: We need drivers, with cars :). I'll drive and I have room to fit three more comfortably (four if they're average size). Please leave a note in the comment section if you're willing to drive. To save on gas, I suggest we meet up somewhere in Madison to carpool. For now, let's go with "Lakeview Community Park" but that can be changed based on your suggestions.

Food: I'll marinade some chicken thighs and bring some beef patties. You can (and are encouraged to) bring some food (or something to grill), chips (dips & snacks of all kinds) and drinks (beers are very welcome!) to share. I'll bring my cooler ice-packed.

Cost: Basically you have to chip in for gas, food and the permit. My rough estimate is $5 for gas and $8 for food and $2 for permit, so, $15 per person which you can pay in cash or with eatables of all kinds. Cancellation: If any of the following happens, consider this event cancelled

1. There are less than 5 people RSVPed by 12:00pm, Fri, Aug 8.
2. There is a higher than 40% chance of raining that day (I'll keep an eye on this).

For the last minute changes, give me howl at (608) 658-5476.

    I think I'll just drive straight to Devils Lake, since I rather drive and it doesn't sound like anybody needs a ride with me. If somebody does need a ride, let me know asap at[masked]

    Ok, looks like we're at 5 now (Karen will not join us). I'm still going to go to the Lakeview Park tomorrow. If you see this post, in time, let me know (send me text at[masked] or reply) if you're going to be there or drive straight to devil's lake.

    HI..I just joined the group. I would love to go with everyone but I would need a ride. I live on West Washington Ave (closer to down town Madison) if anyone could give me a lift I would truly appreciate it and chip in for gas. THANKS.... Karen

      I tried to email Hamid from this site to let him know not to pick me up, but I can't email on here. If he doesn't see my posts on Sunday can someone let him know... thank you

    Is someone bringing a barbecue smoker, or are we just cooking out?

    August 6, 2014

    • Hamid

      Hi Will, I don't have a smoker, I was thinking about using one of the grills at the lake. If have one please bring it, it's. Good to have options! See you tomorrow...

    Looks like tomorrow is going to be sunny all day, yay!
    For those of you wish to go straight to devil's lake, we're going to the south shore. I'm not sure about changing the meetup location this late, so I'd say stick to the current location? Let me know what you all think, If you think we should change it to where Ben suggested, drop a line down below.

    I think it would make more sense to meet at a Park and Ride rather than Lakeview Park. There's one right near there, at: 4817 Parmenter St, Middleton, WI ‎ Also, for anybody who misses meeting up for driving, or lives on the east side, are we going to the south side of the park, or the north side?

    I wish I could be there, but I work every other weekend, and this falls on my weekend to work. If you plan another weekend that I don't work, I will be there.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
