Ok- I will take on the challenge and plan us a picnic..... I was thinking June, as most places are not warm- but Mt. Storm is- like June 12 or 26? OR should we look at July?

What does everyone think?

by the way Eliz, we have been diving at the aquarium quite a bit :) thank you so much for telling us about that!!!! we were in big ocean washing windows when one of the zebra sharks slid up the length of my body from foot to shoulder....oh so cool!! I told my daughter and she freaked and I was already out of the water!! silly girl. can't wait for picnic and diving storm again.

scubajane
04-03-2010, 17:17
Oh dear, we have some frequent flier miles we have to use. and the week I planned was denied by my work place... :( so we will now be gone the 12 of june... I feel really selfish... but is it possible to move the date to the 26 for the picnic. if this leaves anyone out then leave the date alone. I don't want to spoil the fun.

maybe we could do 2 picnics this summer one in june and again in august??? let me know.

mselizann
04-03-2010, 19:29
It might be ok- june 26- what are everyone's thoughts?
Sushi and Nori rub up against me in big ocean all the time...they are so cool.

I adopted a dog today- anyone bringing a teenager who might take a few bucks to watch her while we dive? She's a 12 lb jAck russell, who really likes to attack every large dog she meets. Like- we'll have to keep her away from Katie.

WV Diver
06-02-2010, 13:36
Liz,

We usually roll in there about 08:00. I can bring a table also if need be, just let me know.

Eric,

Why can't you make it?

scubajane
06-02-2010, 16:54
I agree with Eric!!! I can't make this picnic but would love to see you guys again!!! how about a picnic in the fall too!!

emcbride81
06-02-2010, 17:40
I will be driving back from the outer banks that day :(

Jane, yes we should try to do one more if enough people want to do it again!!

mselizann
06-03-2010, 12:51
awesome- if you guys bring your tables then we don't have to worry about it. We are driving so far..........and staying a couple nights, so we have a lot to bring as it is.
FYI- I am bringing a crate for my doggie, so she doesn't bother anyone while we are diving. She's a cutie, but high maintenance- lol

Lone Wolf
06-04-2010, 14:15
I too will bring a table, and an ez up. I look for ward to seeing everyone!!

We were talking about maybe the 3rd week in September for the Fall blowout.

I think we had around 12. I think we can do better than that this fall. Hope to see you there.

Oh man, I knew something was going the third weekend in Sept. but I couldn't remember what it was so I planned a cookout at my house with friends on Saturday evening. That will teach me to put things on the calendar. Is the picnic on Sunday I hope?

Have to miss out this time...still do not have my BC repaired since Dressel Divers decided to return it to me in two pieces. Also our local EMS company is having their annual fund raiser that day and have committed to help with that. If everyone wants to stop by, food and beverages are included in the price of your ticket. www.ngcrs.com (http://www.ngcrs.com)

Eric,

Do you have a grill? Steve isn't coming and he has Mike's grill. So far that is 5 of us but I think some folks that have not attended one of our cookouts but dive the storm regularly may be there, a group of four.

If nothing else, I have a real small charcoal grill. Good for maybe 8 burgers at a time, but better than nothing.

WV Diver
09-13-2010, 20:09
I have one but no room to haul it. Anyway, from the looks of it your little one will work fine. It doesn't look as though there will be that many eating....
