PDA

View Full Version : Maymont Reunion~

So, as some of you know, last year around this time (June 10th, specifically), we had a cosplay gathering in Maymont Park in Richmond, and had a pretty good time.

As it's growing closer to the original date, a few of us have discussed having a reunion of sorts, as well as it being another gathering for those who were unable to make it last time.

The park is in Richmond and doesn't have an admission price. It's huge and gorgeous with Japanese, Italian and other themed gardens. The website is here (http://www.maymont.org/).

So, would there be any interest? If so, what dates work well for people? Perhaps June 7th? I assume many locals will be attending AMA (at this time, I'm not certain if I will be), so that weekend is out, but we could plan one for before or after then.

I had a great time last gathering, and even met the guy I'm currently dating and in love with today there. :P So, if there is interest, I think it'd be fun to plan another one. :skidude2:

Hey everyone! I also attending this wonderful gathering and I met several new people who are now wonderful friends. Maymont really is a beautiful park, I spend 20 or so days there a year both by myself and taking others there who have never been. We had so much fun last year. I hope the people who came last year will join us again, and I really encourage others to come and join us as well. The more the merrier, and don't forget your camera!

Maybe the weekend after AMA would be better. Cause then we could spread word around AMA and get more people to come!

As far as after-dining, there are a whole lot of local businesses that are really good, but they're usually a little smaller. The main chain restaurants are a little further away. Just let me know what everyone would prefer to do and I'll start thinking of the best places to go.

Maybe a couple weekends after AMA? Give people time to recover financially and all XD June 28th maybe? Justin and I were also talking about another beach gathering, maybe, but we can plan that for later in July if there is any interest, so the water will be warmer. (Went this weekend.......big mistake *shivers*)

As far as after-dining goes...maybe we'll wait until we see how many are interested, then pick a place? I'd prefer a closer place, of course, but if we have too many it'd be better to form a train of vehicles and go to a chain further away XD
