I'm gonna start getting a TCCoA BBQ together for sometime in mid-April. Anyone have a suggestion for a park that they'd like to have it at? There's one near my house, but it's not that big...or that nice. There's a nice big one with pavilions and such in Fraser, but not much parking. There's another one behind the high school by my house, but again, not much parking. So let me know where you'd like to have it.

If we're gonna have a TCCOA pic a nic, should we have it somewhere where we can see our cars, or just a normal park? I know of a couple of parks that'd be great.
1. There's a park on 13 Mile and John R in Madison Heights
2. A park in Warren off of 696, by Dequindre.
3.One of the Metro parks. Metro Beach, Kensington, Stony Creek.
Actually, I'd vote for Kensington because there are a bunch of little coves and we wouldn't have to share the lot with potential haters and we'd have our own space. Plus, it would be maybe a little more convenient for some of the people who have to drive further than the rest of us.

I like the Metro park idea. Nice and big, with plenty of space for us. Where exactly is Kensington? I've never been there. Metro Beach is kinda near my house, but it's not that great.

Kensington is off of I-96 about oh 20 minutes west of I-275 I guess. It would help the mid Michigan guys.

Well, it'll probably be in early May, since I have finals and term projects due in the next 4 weeks, I don't have a lot of time to spare to organize. I'll try to get it together ASAP, and I'll let you all know as soon as I have everything set.

Sweet, early May is good. If things progress well at work I'll be up there by then :)

Ok, what about getting together at Belle Isle? There's a lot of room, and it's pretty nice. There's a few cops on the island, but it shouldn't be that big of a deal.

Reasons against Belle Isle

Too crowded
Too far and inconvenient unless you stay on the eastern side of the metro area
roads getting there are bad, roads on Belle Isle are bad
The police presence is overwhelming, considering the majority of the Detroit area cc meet on Belle Isle or Fuddruckers on Jefferson

My opinion.
I still think that if we're gonna do anything we should have it somewhere where it'd bbe more convient for everyone involved.

OK then Kensington is it. How's May 29th sound? That's a Sunday. Unless you guys want to get a shelter for $100, then we just show up and pick a spot. We don't need to reserve a place unless we have more than 50 people.

I think it'd be best to have it the next weekend. I didn't realize that that weekend was Memorial Day weekend for some reason. If it's the next weekend, then we just show up and pick a spot, simple as that. I imagine that a lot of people have plans with their families or something on Memorial Day so I think it'd be best to push it back a week.
