As mentioned previously I am trying to put together a Meeting and drive of Mercer Island followed by a picnic lunch.

The soonest day I can do it is June 8th, 2008. Does that work for the rest of the group?

I figured we would beet at Starbuck on the Island around 10:00 then take a lap of the island followed by a picnic lunch in the hilltop park.

How does this sound to everyone?

Other ideas

Mercer Island thoughts.......

Hurrah to you for volunteering to attempt this feat of starting a Northwest Smart Group ! From one who is the organizer for a huge car club, my personal opinion is that the downtown Mercer Island Starbucks is very congested especially as no one knows their way around any more. Meeting at the Rite Aid - no customers, big parking lot - might be a better thought for a place to begin your event ........ Circle your Wagons at that point, go through drive-in at McDonald's so everyone can get what they need, and then head out for a tour of the Island... West Mercer Way South to East Mercer Way North, and on to Luther Burbank Park for your "Bring Your Own Picnic" meet & greet ! That way, the group is driving on the Lake-side all the way.......... works well if the "Wagon Master" lists (as you have before) those who respond to attending, mentioning their color for easier identification. Please plan to pull over on occasion so resident's can pass - they aren't happy with being held up for Specialty Group's day trips !

Curious - What are you agreeing to participate in??

So far, there is only a vague thought of getting together - no specifics.............. Might be nice if someone wants to organize a gathering and posts the details for all those who are really interested in joining in !!

Let the "Self Appointed Leader" come forward and be hailed for doing so!

How about Saturday the 10th at Mercer?

I have to clear the date but here is what I am planning.

Meet at the large parking lot adjacent to Starbucks on Mercer.
I will post exact location and such when date is cleared this Sunday.

Give everyone a chance to meet and greet then head out for a counterclockwise drive of the island. Just an easy loop with everyone following.

Form up again at the park on the lid and have a bring yoru own picnic.

Does the idea of SATURDAY 10 June and a short drive work for everyone? I will arrange and do details weather I can join or not. I just need to assure there is not something else going on for Mercer or myself that day.

More soon,

Bob

Bob,
I'm sure you're trying to work the Saturday thing to try to help me out! :) I appreciate it, but please do what's best for yourself and the group! If Sunday is a better day for touring Mercer Island, I'm sure I can probably switch shifts with someone to make it. There are at least two people that I can probably switch shifts with! :) So..........I'm gonna try to be there, whichever is best.......Saturday OR Sunday!! :) I've never been to Mercer Island before, but I can certainly punch Starbucks into my GPS. Just let me know which one......if there's more than one!! Thanks!
