It was great to see all of you! We should definitely do it again sometime and hopefully we'll have our jetski out of storage at that point and can bring it along.

I really had a great time. I think next time it will be fun to do lunch and dinner. I enjoyed playing in the lake. Christyn had more fun in the lake when I let her play in the lake with her dora suit off of her. Michelle really enjoyed when she realized that she was not going to drown. I would love to do that again sometime.

Ok, I know what happened.. Beth, you never posted on the spark rally page. that's why you didn't get the spark mail that i sent out. I sent it out to all the people who had RSVP'd that they were coming on that page. I still feel completely horrible about the miscommunication. I hope that you can forgive me.

we missed you!

I'm sorry i didn't get the message until this evening that you didn't get the directions. I feel absolutely horrible for not just resending them anyway. by the time 11:30am rolled around, i was no where near my computer, but up at the pavilion.

We can try for another spark meet up here at the lake again if y'all want.

i know for the future to just do double checking before the day of.

ROFL!! Looks to be a big turnout! i'm excited. i hope to get to the pavilion early enough to reserve a couple tables. as it's first come first serve.

I also hope the rain holds off. that'd really stink if it did hit.

have a great friday!!

Afternoon..

This is for everyone.. PLEASE RSVP on the SparkRally page. If you don't i won't be able to put you on the list to get into the lake, and you'll not get directions to get here. Not trying to sound mean or anything, but I do live in a Private Gated Community.. their rules and all that jazz.

So please I need RSVP's by June 10th Midnight so that i can turn in my guest list.

Evening,

Well DH has volunteered to "man the grill" so to speak. or if you want to cook your own that is fine too ^_^.

Plan as if you were going to the beach, because essentially you are. just lake front not ocean front. sunblock, chairs, towels, toys if you have children..etc.

have a good one.

I'll be driving alone unless someone in my area contacts me for a ride. I am not sure if hubby will come with or not. I may be grilling, not sure yet - I'm not too handy with the grill so may just bring something else to eat.

Another question: Should we bring chairs??

Trevor, I'm so sorry you and your wife won't be able to attend the rally. I enjoyed meeting you both @ Shelley Lake. Last year's Race for the Cure was my first 5K so I understand.

I'll bring something as a side or perhaps extra for the grill. I have something particular in mind I'll bet most haven't tried, if I can find it.

Aww, sorry you'll not be able to make it out Trevor. I hope you have a fantastic time at Race for the Cure! that's definitely a wonderful cause to participate in!

As far as the grill goes.. we'll more than likely want to have grilled food as well. so we'll bring it.

I'll do up a batch of deviled eggs and maybe some jello for the kiddies. or even adults should they want some. I think doing the sides as "pot-luck" would be an easier way of it..if you want too. what sides i bring i'm more than happy to share.

have a great evening!

I think that if I can get a ride than, I am going to bring some hot dogs for my girls and bring a bowl of macaroni and cheese. Or I am going to pack or lunches and put things in their lunches that I know my girls will eat.

I was leaning more towards a BYOM. you CAN buy drinks/food/snacks from the pavilion but they're not the healthiest things around.

You choose what you'd like for a main meal. if you want to grill i'll provide the grill..if you'd rather just pack sandwiches that's fine too.

i really just need a head count for drivers, and if you're wanting to grill, that way i know how much wood to bring for the grill.

I agree - each person should bring their own meat/tofu/veggies or whatever they want to grill and then we can decide if each person should also bring a side or dessert that can be shared. Also, I recommend bringing your own drink - everyone likes different stuff and that way each person brings the amount they think they will need for themselves or their family and there is not a bunch of waste. I've not seen a ton of folks replying here that they can come so I think it's best for each person to mostly be responsible for their own food items.

Probably the simplest would be to BYOM... Bring your own meat. Meat is the most expensive thing, so I would hate to put it all on one person.

If everyone brought their own meat (whether sandwich or to grill or whatever), then each person brought a side of their own choosing (bag of chips, bowl of pasta salad, tray of veggies, whatever), then we would have a pretty nice picnic!

A idea that I have that we can do is someone bring hamburger, hot dogs, chicken or another meat. They can be grilled on the grill. Then we can all bring a salad or something that will be good for a picnic lunch. I could bring a couple pieces of my Italian chicken and also maybe a salad.

Just so that it's clear for all, please bring your own food/drinks or you can buy them from the pavilion snack bar. I am just providing the meet up point and wood fire grill should you choose to have grilled food. you can do sandwiches or salad or whatever your little hearts desire.
As much as I'd LOVE to completely host this i just can't afford to do so. now if you'd rather do it "Pot Luck" that is absolutely fine.
we still have a few weeks to plan on how we'd like to do food.

Input Please :)

Looks like I'll be there after all emoticon I look forward to seeing you all. It's always a Sparkin' great time when SparkRaleigh gets together.

I'll have a photo of the Shelley Lake meet last Saturday posted by this weekend.

well i'm gonna have DH bring our grill down to the pavilion. So if you'd like to grill you can. bring whatever grill foods or other that you'd like to. Think of it as a beach day. pack in pack out for the most part. there are trash cans and restrooms at the Pavilion. There's even a snack bar that will be open as well.

There's a volleyball net at the back end of the beach along with a mini-putt ..but the last time i was up at the Pavilion it was still under repair. so i can't guarentee it's open. The water at the lake should be decent by now.

hope this answers some questions?

V: Thanks for the warning! Directions to our house have a wrong turn in them on mapquest so I can relate. I'll await the real ones :-)

And yes, what is the grilling/food situation? I know we talked about this briefly before but we should have a plan together I suppose!

i will warn y'all now DO NOT use directions from Mapquest or any other map program.. you'll not be able to get into the lake that way.
Once i get confirmation of who's coming.. i'll send out a spark mail with directions and other 'what to bring'.

I only gave that address as a 'planning tool' so you can judge drive time/distance.

i've set up a "Save the date" Spark Rally invite. i'll check back there to get the list of who's coming that weekend.

have a good one.

That address will put you into the lake. i'm 35 miles from the 440 beltline. going east.

hope this helps.

I know that I usually bring LadyFireBall, but I may not be able to for a couple of reasons... I am not 100% that I will be able to make it myself, and also, if I am able, I will probably want to bring my hubby and kids to that one. So if anyone else will be coming through Knightdale, please bring LadyFireBall and her kids for me!! :) I would hate for her to not be able to make it!!

OK, I'm gonna set this for June 13th out here at the lake. Can make it a day event. The lake should be warm enough by then and the Pavilion is available should it start to rain. Swimming isn't necessary but there should you want too. Kids are more than welcome. we can do a big cook-out i'll have Eric bring our grill down to the pavilion so we can keep it healthy. bring what you'd like on the grill.. it's wood-fire grill. so no toxic chemicals going into the food. it's wood from our land.
I will need a List of names of all who are coming, as i'll need to leave your name at the gate.

I can't reserve the Pavilion..it's first come first serve, so i'm gonna try to get in early since saturdays tend to be busy. bring beach stuff and 'camp chairs' so that in case we can't get a table in the shade you'll have somewhere to sit that's NOT in the sand ;)

how about a mid-morning to early afternoon outing? 11am-3pm? more than welcome to come earlier or stay later. just need to let me know if you want to come earlier..as i said i need to have the list of people coming in to the guard house.

I can get directions to you once i know who's coming.

cheers!
