NorCal Spring gathering

Hello everyone! A big thanks to those who made it out to our Winter gathering at Christmas in the Park. Even though it was quite cold it was still loads of fun and we had a lot of laughs all around...like that horse statue D=...though some people couldn't see it...WELOVEYOUTOUSEN! For the new people, here's a link to OscarC's photos from that event:

~Spring Gathering~


I'd like to address what kind of gathering this will be. I want to leave the food type to the expert(BartBoy ^o^) with his Norcal picnic gathering; so this is more of a bring your own stuff aka sandwiches, candy, snacks etc.(though if you want to share your goods that's totally fine) We'll try and set up some fun games for people as well, if you have ideas please post them ^.^ and just to reinforce...NO.GUN.PROPS.PERIOD. Also, this should go without saying but be on your best behavior we will be in a public area etc. and keep the PDA on the down-low. The less parents are freaked out the better off we are, and the more likely we can do this again next year.

We're hoping to make this a cosplay photography event where photographers can just start grabbing people up and do what they do best. If you know a photographer that might be interested then please spread the word once we get dates set and whatnot.

Location: Hakone Gardens, 21000 Big Basin Way
Saratoga CA 95070

Date:
March 14th.
Time: 12:00PM-2:00PM, but please try to come at 11:30am!

Parking: not listed?
Cost:$10 per person~This includes entrance fee

Directions:http://www.hakone.com/visit/directions.html


This should go without saying but should be said anyway:
- be mindful of park rules like avoid destroying shrubbery etc.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/treaked/2831500783/
-if you bring a sword then keep it out of sight until we get inside, the less threatening we look the better.
-If someone at the gathering, in your group, or a passerby is making you feel uncomfortable then let other people know so they can be asked to leave immediately.
*coughwewillkicktheiryouknowwhatlatercough*:toothy :
-Overall just keep an eye out for each other and we'll have a great time =)

stealing second post spot >D
anyways!
basically Kitty has everything generally stated thats crucial to know at this point - once we get people posting, we can start tossing ideas around for a specific date, fun games we can do that require minimal setup, etc. I loved the turnout we had at Christmas In The Park, and I'd love to see the same results (if not better!) for our Spring Gathering. Would be a good place to do a trial run for those of us entering CBF's cosplay contest, too.

Photography event? Sounds like a blast. I love the idea of bring-your-own-lunch, too. I'd love to attend something like this. And as you said, as long as it doesn't fall on the Cherry Blossom Festival, I'd go. So, I'd say late March would be best.

yes! A picnic and pictures sounds like lots of fun!
I enjoy these events too, because they're less stressful than a convention in terms of having time to just talk to people, too.

I believe I was told to come up for this. :P So assuming you aren't coinciding with Sakuracon, I'll be there! Don't want to disappoint. And I had entirely too much fun at the last one, so it'd be lovely to be there again -- you guys rock.

(No cupcakes this time, though. Or at least, I'M not carrying them.)

Hello people I know! I really hope I can make it to this. As long as it's not the weekend right before SFCBF or the weekend after, I think I can attend. Assuming I can somehow get to San Jose. O_o

Yay my favorite pokemon nazi!.......XD

Glad to see the returnees posting, can't have a gathering without captain mom and dad!^o^*is shot by Kimu*

From what I can see the festival AND Sakuracon are both in April so chances are high we will have this in early-mid March so no worries =3 plus AOD is in February so I don't really think there is even anything going on in March, anyone know of anything? O_o

Yeah our main group will be out of town for spring break as well so that's definitely a nono.

Yay for people with cars! XD That may be my best option right now though I have a photographer friend who may be willing to drive. I need to pester him. ^^
