It has been decided upon!

The second picnic in Philly will be Saturday, October 25th, 11AM-6PM
It's being held in Picnic Area 17 of Ridley Creek State Park, about 20 mins in the suburbs of Philadelphia (it's so big, it's in three townships ^^; )
The area features...
-A picnic table pavilion (roof over our heads!)
-Ample parking space
-Playground elements (swings and slide, wee!)
-Direct access to the trail that leads to the creek (waterside pictures?)
and most importantly, what every picnic area in the park has...
-On-site restrooms
There are also vending machines, but we'll have our own stuff so that's not an important factor >.>

For more information on the park, including a map of it, visit the PA Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources' website: http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/ridleycreek.asp

DIRECTIONS
From Philadelphia: Get to PA-3, West Chester Pike, however you would usually do, and go West down it until you reach PA-252, and turn left. You will see a sign for Ridley Creek State park once you reach Gradyville Road. Turn right. Once you pass Providence Rd, you will be in the park. When you see the sign for Areas 8-17, turn left. Follow the signs until you come to Area 17. Park, and relax :)

From the southern part of the Blue Route/476 (Media-Chester): Take the Blue Route up to the Rt 1 Exit. Take Rt 1 towards Lima (West) until the 252 exit, where you will see a sign for the park. Exit and head North (right) on 252. After Rose Tree Park you'll see another sign for the park; turn Left there on to Providence Road. Continue until Gradyville Road, and turn left. You'll be in the park now, so look for the signs and follow em :)

From the NJ/PA Turnpike: Exit on to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, I-276 (It's exit 6, I believe). Stay on that for a while, until the exit for I-476 South. Be careful, it's a sorta tricky exit! You need to make sure to get the left lane of the exit, or you head north. If you miss it, don't worry, take the Norristown exit, and there will be a turnoff for 476 on the ramp. The toll, if you came from the NJ turnpike, will be $1.65. Continue down 476 until the exit for PA-3, Upper Darby / Broomall. Exit off and stay to your right on the ramp. Continue using the From Philly directions.

From I-95 in Delaware, Maryland, etc: Exit onto PA-452 NORTH, Exit 2 I believe. Stay on 452 until you come to the intersection with PA-352 / Middletown Rd and turn left. Stay on 352 until you hit Gradyville Rd, where you'll turn right. Same deal as before, once you see the sign, turn into the park, and follow the signs!

From North Jersey: Take I-287 South until the exit for US-202 South. Get on 202 and stay on it the long way to PA. There is a $1 toll when crossing the Delaware River. Continue on 202 in PA. Be careful, it changes roads a few times. Once you reach the expressway part of 202, stay on it til the end, and exit on to PA-611, Easton Rd, South. Continue on 611 until the PA Turnpike. Exit onto PA Turnpike, and head West towards Harrisburg. Continue using From NJ Turnpike directions. The toll will only be $0.60.

From Collegeville area (since we have a few people from up there...): Get on PA-422 and take it East. Take it all the way to the 202 interesection, and get on 202 West towards West Chester. Exit onto 252 South towards Paoli. Stay on 252 for a long while, past Rt. 3. Refer to From Philly directions.

From Lancaster area: Take Rt 30 East until you reach PA-322, where you'll exit South/East. Stay on it til 202, take 202 south for a bit, then exit onto Rt 3 and head East. Turn Right onto PA-352, just after the Market Place shopping center. Stay on 352 until you reach Gradyville Rd, and turn Left. Follow similar directions once inside the park.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
From Philadelphia
Get to the 69th St. Terminal however you normally would. From there, take the 104 Bus (to West Chester). Along West Chester Pike, you will see a sign on the left side of the road for the park. Get off at the next stop; you will be directly across WCP from main park entrance. CAUTIOUSLY cross WCP, and there will be car transport for you to take you to the picnic area >.>

From New York
Take Jersey Transit's Northeastern line to Trenton, NJ. From there, take the SEPTA Regional Rail R7 train to 30th Street Station. Walk a lil bit to the 30th & Market subway station, and get on the Market-Frankford (Blue) Line subway, and take it to the 69th Street Terminal. Follow same directions as From Philly.

NOTE: You PT guys should try and coordinate to meet up at 69ST and take the same bus to the park. That way, you're all there at the same time, and we who are driving you to the picnic site don't have to make repeated trips =P Also, if you are taking public transportation, please note so in the poll. ...Uh... once I figure out how to get the poll up in this thread :X

Oh yeah. Food-wise... It's pot luck again. Bring whatever you want!
There WILL be barbequeing this time! So if you wanna bring anything other than burgers and hot dogs for grillin', feel free to!
I might even make some genuine Philly cheeseteaks >.>

I'll also supply the plates, utensiles, napkins and cups, unless other people want to take that off my hands

Yaaaaaaaaay picnic! I think it's going to be a very Zelda day for me. Mah Otakon Zleda group needs some nice outdoor shots and this looks like the ideal place to get them! Yay!

I'd bring milk to be in character (I'll be wearing Malon) but I'm afraid it'd spoil! Expect baked goods from me!

09-18-2003, 02:19 PM

I'll have to see what time I have to be there and such, and how much time it would take to get from the picnic to Chinatown, cuz that's basically where rehearsal is, at the Gallery....

Now I'm lost................ I thought we were going to do something for the New England Cosplayers besides the lower half? What ever happened to the Six Flags plan for Massachusetts? Things go so fast now a days its hard to keep up with.

I think the NE in this case stands for "North East"... which I think has been edited since to prevent confusion. But yah! No worries, you just got the wrong thread ^_^*

Uhm... *looks around* Had anything changed? Still the same day/place and all... have we set a meeting time or any restrictions or rules?

Just bein' nosey. ^_^ We're already starting to plan for the trip up and deciding on costumes here. Unfortunately Monoyasha may not be able to make it, so we might be leaving a bit early so we can hang with her back in DE.

[edit] *notices she says "we" alot* No I don't have multiple personalities! lol. I am speaking for mosty of the 'MD crew' and the 'DE crew' ^_^

hyper o^.^o
09-30-2003, 02:45 PM

09-30-2003, 03:46 PM
Ok here's what's going on! There were 2 diffrent picnics/meetups being discussed seperately. This is for the cosplay picnic in October at RidleyCreek park in Philadelphia,PA. The other NE thingie is completely seperate and thats for all cosplayers on the east coast. Any cosplayer can come to this one but anyway correct me if I'm wrong XD;.

*HUGS HYPER* I thought you were going to make it to this one!????

It was either that or Nekocon.. one of the events coming up you said you had a good chance of getting to? Or is this just wishful thinking?

Either way blah... when's concert season over? ^_~

isami
09-30-2003, 05:43 PM

But it will surely be fun even if not as many people show. ^_^ More food for the rest of us. XD

Hmm. Dead animals. XD Have plenty of those in Lancaster! XD I don't know what I should bring. I'd make some uber yum cookies or something, but I have no time to make them, seeing as I won't go home until right before the picnic.

Where can you get "Giant Pocky"? Lol XD. I've never had pocky whaaaaaaa................
If I can't bring that I'll bring soda or chips or something XD.

Yeah, I saw some on ebay a while ago. XD I wouldn't reccomend buying food products over ebay though, never know how long that stuff's been sitting there -.- Would I be able to get that at your chinatown place? (must go there!!! *.*)

You never had pocky?! O.O Stop by your nearest Suncoast & pick up some, you'll be glad you did. My favorite is the Whipped Strawberry Mousse pocky, I think the mousse ones have more frosting stuff on the outside than the rest. *.*

Btw rinkun, where exactly is the store? & would they happen to have that dried ramen that are shaped like stars?? *.* Or that pretz stuff?

A few questions: has a meeting time been decided yet? And, has a pavillion or whatever been reserved? (I assume this park is huge, and I would rather not be wandering around it forever and ever...so a pavillion/lot number would be useful).

Yup! It's from 11am-6pm at Ridley Creek Park at pavillion 17 or something like that lol XD.

I know that I haven't said much of anything here, But I do plan on going :) What it looks like is that I'll be meeting the people coming down from the New York-ish area ( I think along with Lindsey). Maybe I'll make a little chinatown trip or something for food

Maybe I'll actually do more talking now!

YEAY! I think I can go! *bounces*
Well, I'd have to leave at 2, but still, YEAY, I CAN GO! ^__^
Now I just need to figure out my whole carpool situation (CARAVAN! TORA! ^_^ lol) and if/what I need to bring. ^_^

Now, the question is whether I bring normal clothes or wear my costume to orchestra rehearsal... :skidude2:

Tora
10-12-2003, 11:00 AM
Hyper! Costume at rehearsal!!! Which costume are you gonna wear???

I think we're gonna try "modern IY" costumes... nothing too hyped up, but still cute ^_^* So IF you're gonna be Kaede, think of a modern outfit! (Or I will... or Reiko will...)

We're so nuts with these variation costumes.

And HELL YEAH to a caravan! (I refuse to lead it tho... 0_o''')

Sorahana
10-12-2003, 12:24 PM
So Tora you coming up from Maryland? Cool XD. I'm gonna go! I've been nagging my mom about it. She just said we have to leave early cause I have to come back home and take a shower and then me and my friend gotta get to school since we have a play performance that night XD.

hyper o^.^o
10-12-2003, 08:31 PM
Uh... I was thinking probably Milly... [for one thing I like Milly better, another that it's hard to play viola with Kaede's sleeves... ::flap flap:: tried it at Otakon, but not for a long period of time.] Although if you'd like to come up with a modern version of Kaede, and you have time to do that, feel free.
^_^
*remembers she has to repair her eye patch*

My dad was just in this park not too long ago, so I have maps and everything. XD If I'm feeling brave I could lead the caravan... I still have to work out if I need to give someone a ride back from rehearsal... else maybe we could have a caravan back, too... Thing is... my rehearsal is at tenth and market (ends at 5:30). I could make it from the park to rehearsal and from rehearsal to home, but going from rehearsal back to the park might be kinda tricky for me. *shrugs* It's still two weeks away though, I'll figure out what I'm doing before then. ^_^

[edit] Couldn't you just picture Milly wandering around centercity Philly? LOL! ^_^

I altered some of the directions to make them easier; since there are signs pointing to the park everwhere now... No more taking Bishop Hollow Road, heh. Reread them just to make sure.

Yeah, they're rather spacious. They're not like one toilet and sink, it's a full restroom. I just hope the power is on for them... When I was biking the trails I stopped to get a bottle of water and go to the bathroom, and it was all dark and sorta creepy :X
Eh, can always ask the office to have someone turn it on when I get there. *keeps note of that*

Lady Ava
10-21-2003, 09:49 AM
If I come, I'll be taking nice professtional costume shots with my new camera. I need to test it out so that I can start on my school stuff.

Me and at least one other friend will be going (we're working on getting another friend to come with us.) and I'll be bringing my good camera so I could take some good shots I think. Though it's been a while I did take a photography course a few years back but do remember most things from it.

Which reminds me, I should buy some film before Friday...

Sala
10-23-2003, 07:46 PM
I'll try to be a little early -- but no guarantees, since it's quite possible that I will get lost on my way there. I'm not too used to driving around the Philly area yet, as I have had to rely on Septa until this year (I finally have my car at school with me! *hugs car*)

Ah, and I'm super-excited because some people from the Bryn Mawr/Haverford College anime club decided that they wanted to come! More people = more fun! *heh* We'll try to be there at least 15 minutes early, if not more.

Sorahana

I shall try and get there before 11 lol XD. I'll have to nag my friend to be ready so all we have to do is go pick her up and drive there XD.

I don't know exactly when we'll get there, depends on when we leave, I suppose. ^_^; And if we go on an adventure on the way there or not. *studies her map*
Cake looks good. ^_^
Maybe I should bring some blankets, or something... O.o
I don't know what else to bring, like for food... I'll talk to the gang and see, most likely cookies....
I'll still have to leave the picnic at probably 2 to go to rehearsal T_T

oh it is undead now that you and others have poked and prodded it so much! and it hungers for the living! or not. maybe it just wants to shuffle around in peace.

maybe you should start a new thread and try to organize a picnic yourself. this event was forever ago and i for one have no time for one these days.

i do not know who is active these days, but DAS (http://www.delawareanimesociety.com/) used to have picnics in our area. probably within 45 minutes of you. i know that they still meet to watch anime in the same region.

good luck.

We haven't posted in this section of coscom in years...

We have an official North East Cosplayers Picnic section in the forums that you can find here: http://www.cosplay.com/forumdisplay.php?f=118

The picnic for this year was held last month. We will be setting another one up for sometime in 2011.
