New Meetup: End of Summer Picnic Outing

From: Robyn
Sent on: Wednesday, August 4, 2010 7:50 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Boston Sci-Fi/Fantasy Meetup Group!

What: End of Summer Picnic Outing

When: Saturday, August 28,[masked]:30 AM

Where: Boston Common
Park Street at Beacon St
Boston, MA 02108

Summer is almost gone, so lets get outside and have a picnic before the snow starts!

Boston Common is one of the oldest city parks in the United States.

You can get a map of the Boston Common here:
http://www.cityofboston.gov/parks/streettrees/pdfs/boston_common.pdf

We'll meet up at Brewer Fountain (the big fountain next to the Park St Subway entrance, #4 on the map linked to above) from 10:30 AM to 11:00 AM. At 11, we'll head out and find a big open patch of field to sit, talk, eat, and play games.

Things to bring (if you want to):

  • Blankets
  • Chairs
  • Outdoor games (e.g., frisbee, bocce ball)
  • Board Games (you may want to think twice about ones with a million tiny pieces)
  • Food (this is not a catered event! However, if you're feeling generous and want to bring food to share, go right ahead.)
  • Cold drinks
  • Assorted picnic supplies


Things you shouldn't bring:

  • Pets (I know that you love your dog/cat/spitting cobra/targ/tauntaun, but please leave them at home.)
  • Alcoholic Beverages (Being hassled by the Boston Police is always fun, but still...)
  • Fireworks
  • Weapons of Mass Destruction
  • Anything really valuable that you would be heartbroken to have stolen/eaten/destroyed/rained on


NOTE: If it rains, this event won't happen. Sorry. :(
