Summer Picnic Year 2005

I wasn't in Toronto for the last summers pinic. But guess, it turned out to be a good success.

Can some people who attended/organized it list the highlights of that picnic ? And share their experiences ?
Number of people?
Ratio of new comers to old timers ?
Location, Food, ?
Identify what could have been done better last time?
etc, etc...

Assuming, it turned out to be nice, A couple of thoughts:

a. Why just one? Think of more than 1 picnics? Maybe one in GTA and others outside(if feasible)..

b. I love picnics, but whats a pinic without a beach? How about 1000 islands? Or some park to the far east?
If properly managed, and if we can have an accurate estimate of the number of people attending, we could all start off from one location and pool other people in our vehicles. Eg. I can probably acccomodate 3 more people ? Or, we could even think of renting a bus for the day?

c. How many of you go camping? How about camping this year? Last year, i managed to camp up north in Parry Sound.. Turned out to be pretty nice... Again, to camp for good spots in July, you need to reserve by end of February

d. Maybe some organisers can meet in person in January somewhere n GTA to discuss the comfort levels and getting the expectations right here.... And perhaps steam up some of these ideas....

Cheers, bison :p

I am all in all for camping too :clap: :H :ylsuper: ..... but then .... being a junior desi would go with the majority.

Pardon my ignorance ..... what are the mechanics ...... when and to who do we send the names to ...... how much do we need to contribute ????? etc etc the date ?????

camping
Thats great!!!

Any other families out there?

I was shooting to camp at the killbear provincial park, but looks like we may be a little too late for that... I think we just missed the july 1st long weekend... all the waterside camp sites are gone...
Will look in more details at the other camp grounds later...

http://www.camis.com/OP/camping/maps.asp?map=3


Any other families interested? we gonna have to act quick if we dont want to miss the good camp sites in July!!!

To start off, Here is my proposal :
we get a rough idea of how many families are interested and
on the dates.
we can all book our own campsites online.
we can try and get neighbouring campsites...but that may not be possible ( would depend on how big our crowd is ;) )
we'll party once we're there : food/cards/beaches/swimming/fishing/limited drinking,etc,etc... ;)



From my end, i am open to any weeknd in july from friday to sunday. Thats 3 days (maybe thursday as well)
I will be camping with my entire family : 2 adults and 2 kids.
Another family would join me : 2 adults and 2 kids again.
And there may be yet 2 more families who are currently deciding ;)

Last year, i camped in Parry sound at the Ostler lake park.
It was nice and clean, but i think kill bear provincial park is much more popular and hopefully we can get in there. Last year it was all booked for my dates

Its roughly 4 hours drive from 401/404

Even if we manage 5/6 families, it would be fun!!! But the more the merrier ;)

Let me know ur thoughts !!!


:p bison

I am in with you Bison ......

You guys are right .... if we procrastinate we'll miss the boat ..... but I would suggest let's get an organizing committee and keep it organized instead of total chaos.

I am pretty sure since last year a lot of Desi's have joined and would like to come to the Picnic. ..... I would volunteer to help, plan / organize this out...... Bison U with me ?????? obviously with the blessing of the seniore Desi's and the moderators

Chandresh ?????? G.G. ????? VJ ?????

....... :H :cheers: :clap: :ylsuper: :sur:

OK, we are talking about 2 things here....
a) Camping
b)Picnic
Maybe we need to seperate this into 2 threads.

For now, i am talking only about camping, but yeah we need to start thinking about picnic too...

I am still trying to get a hang of how many people are interested in these activities and perhaps a poll would help.
For the questions I raised earlier in this thread, i am still awaiting some answers

I agree that an organizing committe is required if we have a good crowd ( i am talking numbers here)

GG/BL/Chandresh/Pratickm,etc,etc whats ur view?

We need to act NOW!!!

Or, if we manage only a couple of families, we dont need no committees...we can talk it out and plan...


And to answer skywalker, Bison U with me ?????? YES ;)

:p bison

Bison you DA man !!!!! :hat:


I agree with Bison ..... We need to get a certain number ..... to minimize last minute entries / gate crashers we need to get organized ..... whether a PINCNIC or CAMPING

How about placing an " AD " on the front page ???? this way we attract more and more input as to what is an approx number ...... I guess one of the Moderators need to jump in with a certain agenda etc. etc. I do not intend to go above my head

What happens in camping? How does it work? Where do you get the tents, sleeping gear and all? Buy? Rent? Food? Do you cook at site? Using what? Pots,pans? Are all these things available for hire near the camp sites? Any good website that gives all these details.
Will search for some now.
