Summer Picnic Year 2005




If you think it is too early to talk about this picnic, you might be right.

However if we want to book a good spot with any of the good parks we must do it on 2 Jan 2005, as most of the spots just goes away within hours of opening the booking.

What do you think guys? Should we book it or not? Last year we did it without booking and it went well. We can repeat same thing, but having a planning picnic is much better.

Ideas?

Here I come!!!!
Dear Rashmibhai (GG),

First of all this new topic of yours forced me to break my silence of a while. Somehow due to various reasons, I decided to be active only when a thread religiously follow the original topic. The moment I see the original request/topic/information being murdered by various unwanted inputs, I simply stop following that thread.

HERE IS WHAT I AM IN THE REALITY. I mean full fledged, active, ALL TIME READY, EVERGREEN participant of the PIPCNIC kind of thing, and hence I promise to follow this thread till its life.

As you already know my plan, I would be landing in CANADA either on 27th Feb or 6th MARCH. So Atyarthi maru naam register kari dyo ane hukam karo mara tarafthi su seva joiye chhiye.

My hobbies are,

MUSIC
MUSIC
MUSIC
CRICKET
PUBLIC RELATIONS
CHARITY (only for disableds, aged people, and poor talents)
TRAVELLING..

So in the summer picnic, I can surely predict the first two acivities taking place.

Count me in....Let the ball rolling!!!!!!!!!!!

Regards,

VJ.

Hi Rashmibhai,

It is a welcome suggestion and right time to count the number. However, to other members it could be little earlier. I am ready at any time. In case you need any help, pl. call me.

My question was - Should we book a spot right now or not?

Last year we did it without any booking - if we want to do professionaly, we should plan well ahead.

And planning requires more than one head.

Where are you guys? Comon and respond.

Thanks.

Hi GG,

We must have a picnic and to organize it professionally we must book a spot right now. No two opinions about it.

I think you should form a small Organizing Committee of willing volunteers to follow up on this idea. Basically this OC would do all the groundwork and legwork.

Hi GG,

that's a good idea to book a spot in advance. The Q would be wch part of GTA. I guess what you can do is run a poll on the home page with 3-4 options like Scarborough / Downtown (high park) / Mississauga or liekwise. Send PM to each and every member to cast their vote (if you have the mechanism to send this PM at one stroke ;) ). After running the poll for abt a week. At the end of the week, we'll know the most rated area where we have to book a spot.

Now as "your truly" has suggested, you could, together with other Sr members, delegate the work to few of the members. Count me in. I don't know if we have to pay anything to municipality for booking a spot. But I guess that can be sorted out easily.

Do let me know thru a PM, if you want to delegate anything to me. I have recently moved to Mississauga near Sq One, but I still feel, High Park is the most central location for every member and it is also easily accessible from subway. Some of the ideas by "VJ" are also nice. I have no doubt that summer 2005 will have more members attending the PICNIC than 2004.

GG,

I think we should book a spot and work towards getting people to organise and attend the picnic. And if the picnic spot is booked now, even if it it far from Toronto, it will not matter since we will have enough time to organise transport for those needing as well as volunteers for rides etc.

In my opinion, we have enough people who would be interested in the picnic and we should organise something out of town so that we do not mix it up (intentionally or at the last moment) with other household matters/dinner at friend's place/why not do two things at a time kind of excuses. If we go out of town, it is fun of a different nature and then we know we cannot rush back to attend to some other regular work which can be easily avoided.

I suggest something around Niagara on the Lake or Barrie Waterfront. They are both out of town but a max of 90 minutes ride.

Summer Picnic
Dear GG,
It is indeed very good idea to book a spot,for picnic, I shall make it with family, I suggest we make it to a spot accessible by TTC, otherwise new immigrant like me w\o car cannot make it , I am sure I can get a ride form members but ride for a family can be difficult to manage , this probably is applicable to all those w\o car.
I am also ready to share any responsibility in arrangement.

My input
Dear Rashmibhai & all,

Yesterday I went back home and told my wife about the PICNIC, she was very happy. In fact for people like us, it would be an immediate feel of "HOME AWAY FROM HOME". I know the same is with all, but for us it would be a great thing happening as soon as we land in a new place.

I fully endorse reachash's idea of putting a POLL for the location. In fact we can declare a TIME-LIMIT, I mean a week or 10 days in which we will BOOK POLLS from active members. Either we can make the "PERIOD" as the basis or "QUANTITY OF POLLS" a basis (for e.g the first 100 polls).

I am in India (India se kuchh lana hai to bolo picnic ke liye :D ), and landing in FEb end or March begining. I would love to be a virtual member of the OC contributing from INDIA before march. ONLINE MEMBER OF THE OC :cheers: :D

Regards,

VJ

We don't have enough time to discuss the spot. If I put it here with options we will never reach a conclusion. Even to organize a committe and than come to a decision before Jan 2 is not possible.

What I suggest is, let me locate a spot and book it. For us spot doesn't matter, only thing we should have enough facilities available. Now as Chandresh Suggested we can book a park that is not in GTA, so people attending it are 100% committed!

I know few spots can book any of them. However if anyone of you would like to take a lead and book it on CDs behalf, I would be more than happy, as anyways I am very busy for next few weeks.
