This is a composite post of info from a few posts. Plan is for everyone bring something to eat and extra to share! We should have a good time! I will bring disposable grills if anyone wants to grill burgers, hot dogs, veggies, whatever! I'll try to have some extra picnic supplies, condiments, plates, napkins, etc. Maybe someone can contact dealers to see if they have any "give-aways"? (Danny, you there?)

Please post if you plan to attend, how many in your party:

dfwehman (1)
lsmart (2)
gusfraga (1.5)!
bigwarpguy (2)
herbvdh (1)
magnum (2)
Lilsmart (2)

If you have any questions, let me know! Please spread the word if you are on other forums, or have other smart friends. There is a posting on the forum calendar as well. Look forward to meeting you!

=======================================================

West picnic site is the picnic. It is near the lake, there is a playground there, the picnic tables are under a roof. There is a reasonable amount of parking spots. It is a really nice place. There is a marina not far from it. They have row boat and paddle wheel boats. I am not sure if it will be open on the 20th of September. It is at one of the park.

=======================================================

MERCER COUNTY PARK:

From NJ Turnpike

Hightstown. Follow Route 33 West and turn right on

My daughter and I will do our best to be there.

While we live in Philly during the week, we're in Lake Harmony (the Poconos) on the weekends ... any thoughts on the best way to get there from, um, there?

I've not been to Lake Harmony, but spent many summers in Tannersville with my son / daughter at Mountain Spring Lake.

MapQuest shows the route down through Easton. It takes you on some smaller roads over to Route 31 in NJ. If you're not comfortable with the smaller roads, I'd take I-78, do you have a GPS? You'd go down 31 (past my home) to 295. Shows 2.5 hours. PM if you want more detailed directions. Hope to see you there!

No problem with smaller roads ... in fact, I think the drive along the Delaware is beautiful, particularly this time of year. I'll mapquest it and look at my routing options.

I will be there with my Dad. I hope all goes well. I hope it is a beautiful day. I plan to be there early to see if I can reserve that picnic area. I sent an e-mail to MCP about that day and hour but have not receive anything in response. I hope that is a good thing. :)

BWG, I'm not surprised they didn't respond. As I get responses from the PMs sent I will update the first post in this thread. If you are on any other forums (Smart site, 451.com, etc) you could advertise our M&G there too!

Some smarties have suggested starting earlier since they are traveling a distance. I will be there by 2PM so anyone wanting to come earlier is welcome to do so. I cannot change the title of the thread but will ask the moderator to do so! Please PM me if you can come, I'm keeping the top of this thread updated as I hear from people. Spread the word, see you there!

I will try to get there earlier to see if I can get that picnic area before any one else. :) Mercer County Park is really nice.

I will be bringing my digital camcorder. I will make sure it is fully charged and the sd card is empty. :) I will post some of the photos here at SCOA.

:spots:Good news! Cherry Hill MB is going to provide goodie bags for the event and possibly tee shirts. We may have to use a lottery to dole these gifts out. Also, they would like to send a car but have two cars already committed for other events on Saturday. Nice!
