UPDATE 22/7/13 Last update before the big day on Saturday. This is the last call for anyone wishing to attend, so comment below if you wish to join us. I will then note you all the recent information about the day. Also dont forgot to join the Facebook events group, as it will be the first thing to update with any new developments ---> www.facebook.com/events/252120…

UPDATE 30/6/13: We are just under a month away from the meet, so to all the people who havent said yet what they will be bringing, please say what you would be bringing. Also remember to join the Facebook event page for all up to date info, especially incase of bad weather ---> www.facebook.com/events/252120…

----------------------------------------------------------

It is that time of year again, time for the annual DevMeet Picnic :D

This will be the 4th year I have hosted this picnic and like the previous years, I hope that this one will be a big success. Although this year we wont be joined by the DA admins who came over from the states, I hope that I good time will be had by all that attend.

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 meet at 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 --> maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF-8&…
Nearby tube stations are High Street Kensington and Knightsbridge. If you arent 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 alot 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, as long as you are a friendly person then it wont be that hard to start chatting to someone like minded like you. This year however, I will be bringing along name badges so you will at least get one person greeting you when you get your name badge.

What 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. Incase it actually does rain, and I'm talking about the heavy stuff, then the plan will be to walk over to the National History Museum from the Albert Memorial where there is a dedicated indoor picnic area. If it doesnt rain, then we continue as planned.

What time will the picnic end?

There isnt 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 arent from DeviantArt?

As long as they also bring something for the picnic, then you may bring whoever you wish

Can I bring some weed? (I got asked this last year)

No

I cant make that date/that date clashes with another event

It would be a shame if you cant make it, but I would not be able to change the date at this point.

My 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.

Will Tumblr be having another meet and greet on the same day?

It seems like every year that I have done the picnic, they have hosted a meet on the same day, at the same place. And everytime we have wandered over to check it out, its always looked so boring. So this year as ever, if they do it again, I will go out of my way to make this meet more of a fun place to be ;P

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.

Thats about it really. If there are any further questions, then please feel free to send me a message.

You can also keep up to date with the Facebook event page here --> www.facebook.com/events/252120…
This will have all the up to date infomation on it. Just please make sure that you state that you will be attending on this journal before you do so on the FB page

Look forward to seeing you all soon

Till then

Nay :)

I just found this journal entry, previously I'd just seen the Facebook event and skimmed over it.

Nice for organising things thoroughly, Nay.

I just plopped some snacks and things I had in the cupboard into a bag to bring along, hope it's okay to muddle in and share with other people. Looking forward to meet people, tho' I need to leave at about 1:20pm.
