I have talked to a few of the area deviants, and we all agreed it is high time that we had another devmeet, as it's been almost a year!

Who can forget the live tutorials by *solios ... sitting around and BSing for like 8 hours at the Beehive .... the Tiki Lounge (hemp, you owe me a drink ;) lol) ... uhm and other fun stuff I must have forgotten. Anyways, it was rad.

The plan this year is to have a picnic at Frick Park. We can do the traditional picnic thing were everyone brings different food, we BBQ, drink beer, play frisbee, etc etc etc.... :)

Date would be Saturday August 14th or 21st depending on what day more people can make it.

Sooooooooo... lets start gettin this thing together!

Around noon seems like a good time. I'm sure I'll be there for 12 hours again like the last one. :lol:

upper frick or lower frick?

I was thinking we should maybe meet at upper frick [easier to find] and just walk our asses down to the more picnicky area. [Bonus for the photographers, heh]

That sounds like a great idea to me seeing as I'm pretty familiar with where forbes ave. is and then there are quite a few bus stops on forbes if anyone's planning on getting there via patransit ...... I've never met any of you before that I know of IRL so for myself and anyone in my situation...... how will we be able to pick out the deviant bunch from random passers-by?

When I wrote that last post I was actually visualizing a big black stamp saying 'deviant' across everyone's foreheads..... but I could just wear a sign around my neck that says 'Will deviate for Iron City' I figure that would be pretty noticeable and obviously both deviant and 'burgh at the same time......

yeah or do what i did, sit at the table across from them by myself for 15 min then finally go ask if thats who they were and risk being looked at funny :P

Maybe we will have a small sign or something. I can make one, I think I have some cardboard I can use..

Anyway, tash, what time do you think we should all try and get there, when did we meet last time? around 11-12pm ish? People can always float on in whenever they are free, we were there last time for a good many hours.

I've been a member for quite a few months and haven't really posted regularly in the forums, but I saw this topic and it sounds like fun. I'm from McKeesport just southeast of Pittsburgh and am in the city all the time. If it's going to be a picnic thing, how will we go about it? Should everyone bring something or just enough for themselves?

DecayingPinkBunny Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2004
Nevermind..... I just scrolled up read a little more and realized it's an 'everyone brings something' sort of thing...... being that, how shoul we decide who'sbringing what just so we know that all of us won't be showing up with potato salad and paper plates?

P.S. If you live within reason of the city and need a ride, I have a pimpin minivan that seats another 6 people. Sorry, Splat. I'm not pickin you up. hehe

Everyone from last year knows I roll in ONLY THE FINEST OF AUTOMOBILES. (door handle broken, no a/c, etc etc. :lol:)

Awwww... c'mon! I'm only 4 hours away! You could chill in my hood for a while, then drive me home after it was all over.

Hey, my pimpin' ride might have yours beat. All four of my door handles work fine, but I have broken A/C, no power windows, and an engine that likes to hiccup when you turn it off. But I'd probably be able to fit most cars in my trunk. =)

Lets just say the 21st then. That will give everyone almost a month.

Frick park is ... uhm... out near Squirrel Hill, Swissvale, etc, I think.


I already know what I'm bringing... a case of beer. :giggle:
I may even cook something. :p

i sent notes to a bunch of people in my nearby deviants list thingy. hopefully we get a big group this time. should be fun. once we pick a date we should figure out who is gonna bring what for the picnic, early enough for people to get to the store.

Don't forget the Star Wars bed sheets we found on Carson street that solios took home with him :) Either one of those dates should work fine for me.

I missed out on the last Burgh meet due to car issues, and I'm still kicking myself for that one. So, if you guys pull this together and I have even a chance to make it down that way, I'd love to meet everyone.

I definitely can't make the 14th of August. I'll be on vacation from the 13th until the 18th. The 21st is a real possibility though.

Of course, I'm up here in Rochester NY, so don't plan the thing around me. You Burgh residents decide what's best for all of you. =)
