Boston Picnic 2009

Picnic. Boston. Summer O.O

Date now up, we usually had a few chances to get our local geek picnic on, this month is limited.
Rcently played spot: Boston Commons worked out fine in the past, and there doesn't seem to be another party already owning the park like last year. Locals must know about us know XD

Saturday fits well? rain dates can be the following Sunday or even the next Saturday. Its up to everyone else at the round table of New England.
Possibly good dates were:
May 30th(Sat) week after AB might be early, but is good recap for AB jaz(in case you were too busy that con weekend XD)
June 6th
June 13,
and Unfortunatly I'm not hitting Anime Next 2009(June 20-22 Somerset, NJ) I bet I'm not the only one in the northeast staying home this year.
What say you all?

ANext is actually the weekend of the 13th, PortCon is the weekend of the 20th. (Which I will be attending)

I don't think too many people will be going down to NJ that weekend, but I can make either the 6th or the 13th.

I'll be at PortCon too, and I'm sure a lot of others will.

I voted for 6/6, but what about 6/27? I think I'll be able to do the 6th, but the 27th is better for me.

Then again, I just shouldn't go because I swear everytime I try to go to one of these events the weather sucks. It's rained, or it's snowed, or it's been frigid each time I've gone to or planned to go to an event. I bring bad weather I guess, lol.

I don't mind rain in the summer, unless I'm wearing a costume that I don't want to be ruined. Beats cold rain in the other seasons any day. Though these kind of events call for costumes that one wouldn't mind if they got damaged, being outside and all.

I'm pushing for the 6th, due to PortCon and ANext, and any later than the dates provided and I'll probably be going insane planning for CTcon (or it might be the calm before the storm, who knows)

My best bet would be the 6th as well. Less work and problems to worry about.
