After totally failing last year, NECP returns under my 'vigilant' watch with over a month to plan, hooray!

Date: Saturday, May 30, 2009
Place: Around the Gazebo, Rose Tree Park, Media, PA (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=rose+tree+park,+media,+pa+19063&sll=39.919216,-75.420113&sspn=0.120597,0.234489&ie=UTF8&ei=wURESN3nMKT4iQHXo7yTDg&sig2=Q62SoR70zCwGwDTp1nHbkA&cd=1&cid=39939780,-75394739,17866403451649843122&li=lmd&ll=39.946266,-75.408354&spn=0.030137,0.058622&z=14&iwloc=A) (Same Bat Place)
Time: What like noonish I guess? (Same Bat Time)

Food: Pot luck. Please bring food/beverage or food-related items. There's a Wawa down the street if you really need to grab something last minute. But everybody

Cosplay: Optional. Feel free to, just keep in mind we're outdoors, eating, running around, and it'll probably be warm. So dress appropriately.

Events: Bah, as if we ever plan this kinda thing. I dunno, bring a soccer ball, bring a frisbee or five, there's wide open grass to do whatever.
While we generally don't stay that long, the Delaware County Summer Festival will be ongoing by then so there will be a concert of some sort at 7:30.

Spread the word, and see you there.

I have a couple questions.

First, what time do people typically get there/go home?

Also, what is this area like? Is it going to be crowded and busy because of the event going on there later? Or will we mostly have some/a lot of space to ourselves?

Also, what is parking like? Is it out on the street or can I park close to where we'll be meeting?

Thanks! Looking forward to this.

Edit: And I'm bringing two friends! So count on three more people.

1: Usually goes from like 12 to 4 or 5. So we won't be affected by the concert later at night.

2+3: Allow me to use the wonders of GMaps Satellite View for that: http://teh-oshi.net/stuff/necp-area.jpg

Aw, that sticks. Well, I'm recruiting all over the Internets so hopefully we'll get a few people.

Hey, my cousin is a culinary student and he's coming with me to the picnic. Do you guys have any special requests? He said he's more than willing to make us something. Maybe some sort of cookie or something? Don't feel bad making suggestions. He asked me to try to get some ideas for him.

As well as bringing a case of bottled water. THE NECP NEEDS MOAR BOTTLED WATER!!!

I'm planning on cosplaying, and I have also spread the word to several others not on coscom who will probably also be attending, probably in cosplay.

Cosplay? If my pants stay on the entire day it's a win, let alone cosplay.

This is what happens when the wife drags me out into public sober ppl.

Hey hey if the weather holds I will see if I can go. Being new to the cosplay thing it a great time I've had in the past. I have only attend one con (katsukon) so if any one that was their might know who I was when I get their. If we need a grill I can get two or three up and running except for the smoker plu it take a while to make smoke food so let me know what's up.

Later All

Speaking of weather, is there any plan should it be raining, aka rain date, or is it rain or shine? Considering coming with the ID if we've got nothing going on at home.

Oshi

Right now the weather looks good; mid-70s and clear on Friday, some rain earlier in the week. I'll say raindate is Sunday, just in case that rain doesn't come early in the week enough, but I'm pretty confident on the weather being awesome.

I wouldn't bring a grill to a public park just in case. We'll already be attracting enough attention with cosplay and all that. Unless you're sure the grills are allowed, I'd leave them at home.

Nah, don't worry about it, we usually have a little charcoal grill cooking up stuff, they're plenty allowed.

Woah really? That's awesome! Especially since my cousin is going to school to be a chef. If you guys bring stuff or want him to bring stuff, he'd probably be willing to cook it up for us.

Team Troy now consist of myself, TEE!, John, Ray, Flippy and VY. We're gonna see if Judy and Tiff want to join us as well, given the fact that we have 2 cars. We'll keep you posted during the week

Yeah at this point I'm definatly in.

Not sure what costume to bring. It's a toss up between Luffy and Gendo. (or Tuxedo Mask if it's somehow finished) depending on the weather. Kinda like Gendo, but if the weather's warm, I wanna do something to cover my head. We'll see what happens.

What costumes are people considering?

I don't think I have that little grill anymore, so if someone else wants to bring something, thats cool.

I just found out about this! <3 If I manage to hitch a ride, count me in as Ranka! (Maybe Makoto.. if it's gonna be hot, I'll probably just op for Ranka.)

So yeah, I'm unsure what I want to bring. So what are you all bringing so we don't have people all end up bringing cupcakes? lol

I changed what costume I am bringing last minute. I updated something old, has a mask. But I can always take it off when we aren't taking pictures.

PICTURES OF SPIDERMAN! (Not really)

Any update on the weather? It looks like it could be turning against us.

TheAnarCHris
05-28-2009, 11:10 PM
According to weather.com it's suppose to be 80 with a mix of sun and clouds on Saturday. Which works for us.

As for food, im bringing cash when we do the food run. As long a Bandit brings the grill, we should be set. If not, WaWa's it is!

I didn't mention this, but I write for a Web site called the Girls Entertainment Network. Our picnic gave me an idea for an article so I wrote it up, complete with some pictures, and posted it.
