It is that time of year again, time for the annual DevMeet Picnic
This will be the 6th year this picnic has run and like the previous years, I hope that this one will be a big success.
So here's all the info you may need; (Most of these points are for newcomers or are based on previously asked questions. if you are a regular, just read the points that apply to you)Whats the plan?
We will be meeting at either Albert Memorial in Hyde Park at 12'oclock. From there we shall head into the park itself and set us base for the picnic. For the picnic itself, each attendee should bring along an item of picnic food to share. If each person brings something along, there will be more then enough for everyone.Where is the Albert Memorial and how do I get to it
The memorial is to the south of Hyde Park, opposite the Royal Albert Hall. Here is what it looks like --> upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia… and here is a map showing where it is --> www.google.com/maps/place/The+…
Nearby tube stations are High Street Kensington and Knightsbridge. If you aren't from London and unsure where to go, send me a message and I shall write you out the directions from your nearest station.What food should I bring?
Anything you want, just as long as you bring something. With the list of attendees below this journal, I shall write what each attendee is bringing so you can get an idea what to bring. For example, if the list has a lot of people bring cakes, bring something savoury instead. Another idea is to bring things like plastic cutlery, plastic cups, plates as we will be needed those also.
Please note that alcohol is fine to bring, but you must be of age, drink responsibly and keep it away from minors.This will be my first meet, I won't know anyone there
Everyone past and present who has been to a meet will have been in the same boat, just talk to anyone you come across. most of us are friendly, you'll find new friends pretty damn quicklyWhat else will be happening during the day?
Besides the eating of food, the idea is to just enjoy ourselves in the park with nice weather (hopefully). Bring along any sketchbooks, cameras, musical instruments or any outdoorsy stuff like Nerf guns, frisbees, stuff like that.What happens is it rains?
With this being Britain, its the roll of the dice guessing what the weather is going to be like. In case it actually does rain, and I'm talking about the heavy stuff, then if we are the Albert Memorial the plan will be to walk over to the National History Museum. Rain plan for the arch is undecided.What time will the picnic end?
There isn't a set time, the day will end when people naturally start to depart. The remaining regulars will most likely be heading to the pub afterwards, which as long as you are 18+, you are welcome to join us at. Otherwise you are free to head off whenever you wish.Can I bring a friend or parent with me? Even if they aren't from DeviantArt?
No... ok... yes then, as long as they also bring cakeCan I bring some weed?No
... we cannot stress this enough.I cant make that date/that date clashes with another event
The date isn't currently set in stone so suggestions are welcomeMy parents wont let me go
Again, that is a shame. But you can tell them that they are more then welcome to come along also if that would make them feel better.This all sounds good, so how do I sign up?
Just reply to this journal stating that you wish you come. Remember also to write what you would likely bring with you to the picnic. You can change your mind, but its to get an idea about what we will have with us. Even if you wish to come but are unsure if you can yet, still reply and I can take you off the list if you are then unable to come.
That's about it really. If there are any further questions, then please feel free to send me a message.The ListYes'
