Calgary Late Summer Picnic

Let's all get together and enjoy some sun together. I think "Pot Luck" is in order and we'll make an afternoon of it. Waddayasay?

The site is the "Raven" site at North Glenmore, it's close to parking and washrooms.  The playground facilities are a little bit of a walk but not too bad.  Pets are allow on-leash and obviously have to be cleaned up after.

There are two free standing BBQ's there so we can cook some meat or some vegetables.

As this is a City of Calgary site there is a no alcohol policy.

Barring weather issues we're good to go!

    Sorry I bailed! Looked too cold and wet to be waiting on an inconvenient transit schedule. Next time!

      Hi Angie so sorry we did not get in touch, since I know where you live I would have come to pick you up. Next time please feel free to call me :)

    So the weather didn't cooperate, but the people and the food and conversation was top tier (as usual)!

  • Sean

    It was a great idea to get out and see everyone at a different venue. We'll do it again soon, but with nicer weather...

    2 · September 8, 2013

    • Tom

      Thanks to Sean for personally covering the cost of booking the picnic spot! I'm glad the weather didn't get the better of those of us who could make it.

      2 · September 9, 2013

  • Cherisse

    Wonderful picnic, gourmet food, gourmet chef, frisbee, kids, dogs and great conversation as always!

    September 8, 2013

    • sanya

      You are right Charisse, thank you all for rel fun evening. And Cherisse.....you looked so amazing on your bike - can't wait to get my license now.....maybe I can look that cool too:)

    Okay...I wasn't able to connect to Emily. So I guess I am not coming! Hope you are having a good time.

    September 7, 2013

  • sanya

    I am glanmore park north. Which park area?

    September 7, 2013

  • Cherisse

    Common people, we're Canadians, right? Let's just wear our parkas and it'll be fun!!!

    • David R.

      it's tempting, it really is, I actually have an engagement at 6pm, if it was actually at 3, I would have done it regardless of the rain :) , I really relate to garbage: 'I'm only happy when it rains, I'm only happy when it's complicated'?

      September 7, 2013

    • Aaron T

      We're 30 min away, but start up the charcoal anytime... I'm starvin!

      September 7, 2013

  • Larissa K.

    Sorry, but I'm not coming.

    September 7, 2013

  • David R.

    If anyone's interested, we're at Local 002 pub right beside Mount Royal University (me and Jason), huge table here if you want to join us.

    September 7, 2013

  • Angie W.

    It looks like transit is kind of difficult, only running every hour? I ran behind on time trying to get ready and if I don't get to the bus in 10 minutes, which I won't, I have to wait another hour, arriving at 540.

    September 7, 2013

    • Larissa K.

      To be honest, I am too. I keep on thinking of opening a bottle of red wine...

      1 · September 7, 2013

    • Angie W.

      And it just started raining again... le sigh

      September 7, 2013

  • sanya

    I can't make it till 6 :(. Please call or text me if I'm not there by 6 15 ....means I am probably lost in wilderness[masked]

    September 7, 2013

  • Jason

    The addresses conflict. Is it north Glenmore park or south Glenmore?

    September 7, 2013

  • Cherisse

    I just got here. It's nice

    September 7, 2013

  • Sean

    Looks like the rain is letting up around 5. Knock on wood, that's a good time for us. :)

    September 7, 2013

    • Sean

      So it seems like there might be thunder showers. Could be touch and go depending on which weather report you read. Definitely bring an umbrella and be prepared for some rain.

      September 7, 2013

    • Angie W.

      Yeah I'm thinking 5

      September 7, 2013

  • Sean

    I'd probably not head over there until after 4 at least.

    September 7, 2013

  • Sean

    The site is paid for and I'm close. So if others are going ill be there. Just have to pick up my gold medal in truck pull for corporate challenge. :D

    1 · September 7, 2013

    • Mark T

      Is there a new time, I have to run to the NE, but then I will head over there. Probably won't be there until 3:30.

      September 7, 2013

  • Cherisse

    I'm going to go have a picnic there regardless of what the rest of you do, and I'm riding my motorcycle

    September 7, 2013

    • Cherisse

      Trust me, you wouldn't want to ride on the back with me, I've only been riding for a week...well unless you really like the adrenaline rush

      September 7, 2013

    • Sean

      You're going to be cold. :)

      September 7, 2013

  • Cherisse

    Well, you all know what I think already so this is just an update from the far south...the roads are completely dry and if you look at the satellite images the dry weather will soon be working its way northward. The heaviest cover is in the north and Glenmore isn't that far from me so I bet its stopped raining there already.

    September 7, 2013

  • Sean

    Ok it's raining way more than anticipated we may have to postpone. Thoughts?

    1 · September 7, 2013

    • Tom

      I'm good with that, Jason.

      September 7, 2013

    • Tolou B.

      agreed

      September 7, 2013

  • Larissa K.

    Didn't Pierre Berton also define a Canadian as someone who likes to make love in a canoe? Not my thing :)

    1 · September 7, 2013

  • Jason

    Ultimately the final decision is Sean's. We will follow your lead oh fearless leader!

    1 · September 7, 2013

  • Larissa K.

    I'm in the SW and it's steadily raining.

    September 7, 2013

  • Cherisse

    It really doesn't seem too bad right now. The roads are drying up in the south and it's not raining any more

    September 7, 2013

    • Angie W.

      Won't the benches be wet though?

      September 7, 2013

  • farnaz

    What a fantastic idea!
    Does anybody by any chance ride from downtown? I would need carpool, and of course would be happy to pay for the gas. Thanks

    1 · September 1, 2013

    • Emily R.

      No, although with this rain I think I'm just popping by for an hour.

      September 7, 2013

    • farnaz

      The "sender" of email shows up as "Meetup". The subject should say "farnaz sent you an email".

      September 7, 2013

  • Mark T

    I am not here next weekend. I also have a lot of food for this, so I would rather do it today. I might be acting selfish though, so if next weekend is better for everyone it's probably the better call.

    September 7, 2013

  • Larissa K.

    Postponing probably makes sense. Even if it's not raining, it will be wet and not very warm.

    2 · September 7, 2013

  • Sean

      1 · September 6, 2013

  • Sean

    Umbrella's are a good idea for tomorrow. No refunds except for exterme weather so we're a go!

    1 · September 6, 2013

  • Angie W.

    I'm not sure if anyone's bringing drinks or not but I picked up a couple Safeway colas just in case. Anyone have disposable cups?

    September 6, 2013

  • Larissa K.

    What should I bring?

    September 5, 2013

  • Mark T

    I can bring sausages and buns. Looks like we are lacking on the meat products.

    September 5, 2013

    • Angie W.

      Hey chicken salad is meat! Lol.

      September 5, 2013

  • Mark T

    Just had a thought, I could do shish kebabs

    1 · September 5, 2013

  • Cherisse

    It's only light rain, it'll make it interesting.

    2 · September 5, 2013

  • Amy

    Looks like it's going to rain, is there cover at this site?
    What should I bring?

    September 5, 2013

    • Sean

      Well that's the thing. This is not a covered area, other than trees. :-|

      September 5, 2013

    • Sean

      I'm not sure what the fall back would be and tomorrow looks like it should be quite wet.

      September 5, 2013

  • Emily R.

    Hi! My fiance and I moved here about a week ago and we were going to come along to the picnic. We'll bring chicken to BBQ and a salad.

    1 · September 4, 2013

    plates, cups, cutlery
    a homemade appetizer
    Home made coleslaw (vinegar and oil)
    marshmallows
    watermelon
    veggies
    fruit
    possibly healthy snack or chips and wieners.
    I'm bringing charcoal...I'm not seeing much to cook, do I still bring some?

    August 29, 2013

    • Angie W.

      I'll make some chicken salad if that helps!

      September 1, 2013

    • Sean

      Sanya, you can bring whatever you'd like to bring. It'll be great. Angie, chicken salad would be great.

      September 1, 2013

  • sanya

    Thanks for the map :) I will bring an appetizer...home made of course!

    August 26, 2013

  • Aaron T

    Our free Superstore gift was 250 paper plates so we might as well provide plates, cups, utensils, and some outdoor cookwarez.

    1 · August 15, 2013

  • Tom

    I could make some home-made coleslaw (vinegar & oil -- no mayo).

    August 15, 2013

  • Cherisse

    I'll bring marshmallows and watermelon

    August 15, 2013

  • Tolou B.

    Both dates are good for me and I will bring Veggies and fruit.

    August 15, 2013

  • Sean

    Also it would be great if Everyone brought some food. Just leave a comment with what you are bringing!

    Thanks!

    August 15, 2013

  • Cherisse

    August 17th, this coming Saturday would work well as long as its enough notice for people.

    August 12, 2013

    • Cherisse

      In that case, I vote for Sept. 8th, Sunday.

      August 12, 2013

    • Aaron T

      The 8th sounds doooable.

      August 14, 2013

  • Tommy T

    I'm good with the 8th too

    August 14, 2013

  • Sean

    So does everyone feel about the 7th or the 8th?

    1 · August 13, 2013

  • Amy

    This sounds great, it just depends on the date.

    August 13, 2013

  • Tolou B.

    25th works for me. And let me know if it is dog friendly please.

    August 12, 2013

  • Tom

    .... depending on the date of the picnic ...
