I'd like for as many people from Maine to Florida, the Ohio Valley and areas nearby to make it out, but I realize it's a hell of a drive for some people, and not everyone will make it. That being said:

We're planning a cook-out meet in VA Beach for Saturday, September 3rd, 2005. I haven't gotten an exact time yet, nor exact location(Kevin aka vbeachboy is helping with some information). After the cook-out there are plenty of other things to do, but the basic meet would be the cook-out itself. I'm working on numbers for the park and hotels. What I need is an exact headcount by August 1st on whether or not you're going to make it. Then I can give everyone an amount to pre-pay to RSVP their spot. Your money will cover some of the cost to rent a pavillion, and food(burgers/hot dogs/sausages/chips/etc).

I'm thinking the best way to let me know for sure if you're in or not is to PM me as soon as you know to make this easier.

Let's make this the best East Coast meet CSi has never had Who knows, with Cali having been successful with their North meets South, and ours turns out great, we might arrange a national meet finally

I'm beginning to think Kevin fell off the face of the Earth again, so bear with me as I get information for parks to cook-out at, and places to stay Thanks guys, I really hope more people will decide to come out.

If we want to reserve a picnic shelter, it looks like because of the dates we want it'll have to be a full day rental which runs $100. I found one that is closely located to the beach called Red Wing Park.

Quote:

Red Wing Park is a 97-acre district park. The property, formerly the “Old City Poor Farm”, was acquired by the County in 1879 and developed in 1966 by the City as a family, general use park. The park is open year round from 7:30 a.m. - sunset.

Facilities include four tennis courts, a basketball court, four volleyball courts, two handball/racquetball courts, badminton courts, horseshoe pits, five shelters, three playground areas, three softball fields, nature trails, four gardens, picnic areas, grills, a dog park, open fields, vending machines, restrooms, and wooded areas.




I know everyone is concerned about costs; I've found hotels that aren't right on the beach for $55 a night. I'm sure some of us could find rooming buddies to cut down on costs. I think JB and I are contemplating camping out; I'll be more than willing to look into it for anyone else interested as well.

Well....I was trying to make it a CSi thing, but if it doesn't look good I guess I'll take it elsewhere.

It's a bit too far for me
I'll give it a serious thought.
If enough people show, maybe I'll go

That's why I have it in my sig; I post in both SvA, General and OT. I'd rather not have 10 different' sticky's to keep track of

Tropikana: maybe you're being there will encourage others to come It's roughly a 9 or so hour drive for me

Yep. I was just in Baltimore this past weekend, and we past the exit for VA Beach on the way. It was approximately 8 hours from where we're located, give or take. Still a damn long drive, and I'm contemplating bringing a two year old kid with me

I mentioned JB and I were contemplating camping out; this campground is right down the road from the park. They don't have any cabins available, but they do have tent sites. I know some of you might be scared of the outdoors but considering all the hotels near that area are either booked up or incredibly expensive, sleeping outdoors doesn't sound like such a bad gig

Sorry Mary. Like I said, I'll help out when I can, but I'm almost always busy and don't get the chance to check the forums like I used to. Red Wing park is a good place to have the meet/picnic though. Unfortunately, Sept 3rd is a bad day for me, but I'll be in town the rest of that weekend. I've just had plans for that day for awhile now, and probably will only be able to come to the picnic for a short while as long as it is on that day.

Any other plans regarding the rest of that weekend? I'll try to at least check this thread from time to time to see what is going on.

I've no clue what all plans we'll have; I know JB and I are planning to stay from Friday to Monday, so you're welcome to play tourist guide Come by when you can to the park; I have to rent it out all day because it's Labor Day, so I'm sure someone will be there.

It is sticky'd in OT, and there's no sense cross-posting it across the board. It's in each of the regional forums and my sig; I think they get the point

Pavilion is reserved, payment has to be made by Aug 12th, so I can extend the RSVP date until Aug 10th. That way everyone can make needed arrangements and get back to me.

RSVP by PM before August 10th, 2005!!!!

I found a hotel in Chesapeake, about 17 miles from the park, for $55 a night. I can call tomorrow and see if I rent out a block(for those interested)for a cheaper rate.

Sun Suites in Chesapeake, $55 a night with Orbitz for those who wanted to know.

I've left a message with the GM to see if I can negotiate a better rate, but I need to know how many rooms, people!

Okay people, today is D-Day. If you're coming, you need to let me know today, and send me $10. I have to pay $100 on Friday for the pavilion, and whatever is left from the money sent to me is going to the food fund. I also need to know who is definetly coming so I can buy the right amount of food for everyone. Anyone who shows up without bothering to let me know runs the risk of not eating. I think the very least you can do is donate $10 since I'm footing a lot of this on my own til the day of the meet. I'll gladly bring receipts for everything so no one thinks I'm trying to make money off this

Okay, couple of important questions:
1) Burgers and hot dogs okay with everyone? Chips, potato salad, that kind of thing? Can we start a list of people who intend to bring food to donate to the cookout?
2) We're at pavilion 1, which is conveniently located near the softball field and volleyball court. So bring any softball/baseball gear you might have, because you never know when an impromptu game might break out I'll bring a volleyball, and I thought I might also bring a kickball or dodgeball to spice things up a bit.
