I thought we might have mulled this over once last year, but i'll bring it off the back burner since spring is here and the seasons are coming to an end.
What is the consensus for getting everyone together for a buckwildadventures picnic one Saturday??
I was thinking a weekend in early June after turkey season and memorial day are over? Perhaps Gilbert Run to get the families and kids out too for some fishing and games? Big Fox can pull everyone around in a paddle boat...lol! ;-)
Anyhow, just a thought... we could make it a potluck and probably get a beer permit from the county if need be.
figure out what it costs to rent a pavillion and if it is to bad we can always just show up and grab the picnic table by the play ground. me and you could get there early Mike and put those on lock down. I have a feeling that renting a place may turn into a pain.

You know Smallwood State Park has a private pavillion that is cheap to rent, private bathrooms, 2 big grills just outside roof cover. We have had several parties there for our children and friends children. The best part is the kids can come too cause there's a huge playground (private), huge sand volleyball pit, plenty of room for just about anything you wanna do... Too many transits at Gilbert Run!! Lots of chairs and tables under the pavillion too. Just an idea.

- 3 pavillions. One holds 50 people, the other 75, and one holds 100 people. The pavillion that holds 100 people is only available on June 11th. The rest are all available the 4th or the 11th.
- Price: $21.75 + service charge*/day (50 person capacity) ($1.23/person) $71.75 + service charge*/day (75 person capacity) ($1.49/person) $96.75 + service charge*/day (100 person capacity) ($1.36/person)
Service charge is $5 for the reservation. There is a Day Use Service Charge (gate fee): Weekends and Holidays April-October $3/person
Beer permit is $35 (one time).
Largest pavilion; accommodates groups up to 400; $250/day; Beer permit - $25 additional cost. *50% Gate Fee discount (must be paid in lump sum at end of day). (65 cents/person)
Large pavilion; accommodates 250 people; $150/day; Beer permit available - $25 additional cost. *50% Gate Fee discount (must be paid in lump sum at end of day). (70 cents/person)
Medium size pavilion; accommodates 150 people; $100/day; Beer permit available - $25 additional cost. (83 cents/person)
3 Regular size pavilions; accommodate up to 50 people; $75/day. ($1.50/person)
The gate entrance fee is $4 per vehicle. With the first two pavilions this drops to $2/vehicle.
_____ I put the per person price at the end of each number based on the price and if the max number of people show up.
So, let's pick a date and place and figure out what we want to do.
If we choose Smallwood then I say the 100 person pavillion on the 11th.
If Gilbert run then lets' go with the large or medium pavillion for either the 4th or 11th.
As for beer there, we can get kegs or BYOB with the permit. We can figure that out along with times later.

I like the June dates so when a decision is made as to where let me know ASAP so I can get a hold of the wife's calendar! I might be able to get some corn hole boards and bags for a game. I can bring sproting equipment and I am an experienced griller! I will help as needed! I have wife and 3 kids in my family. 5 total!
