2007-06-26 09:12:47 Sad Sad Sad, I will not be in town.. yet again. —DavidPoole
2007-06-26 18:16:23 That's 7-7-7 — shouldn't we be off gambling? —JaimeRaba
Some poker chips, a few card tables. Cards. Mahjong? Who says we can't? —KevinChin
2007-06-26 18:40:14 questions: is this open to anyone on the daviswiki? are there any games or activities planned? For example, could we arrange the catapult? ok, zaijian. —JessicaRockwell
Absolutely anyone who wants to can come. Arrange any activities you would like!
2007-06-27 02:15:55 we need supplies for wiki capture the flag —StevenDaubert
maybe a "capture the sockpuppet and troll" game?
2007-06-27 05:02:12 possible drinking game: everytime someone says "wiki" or "davis", take a drink. (if you do this to the word "evidence" while watching richard dawkins' the root of all evil?, you get plastered very quickly). —JessicaRockwell
2007-06-27 13:44:30 lame name now, phillip fails —StevenDaubert It needs to go back to omgwtfROFLwikBBQ after the event is said and done...
2007-06-27 14:28:57 If there is alcohol - shouldn't an open container permit be secured just to be sure that when things get wild everything will be OK? —SharlaDaly
2007-06-27 14:40:55 Yeah, Sharla, I was thinking of doing that. —BrentLaabs
2007-06-27 16:42:34 thats taking it a step above, all you have to do is talk with the officer of that specific sector during the time the wikiQ is going down, slide hill is an open container park, and I expect the wikizens can keep it civil... —StevenDaubert
Has the city council banned alcohol everywhere? I remember hearing that they were thinking about it. I was of the understanding the Slide Hill was one of the parks excepted under the open container ordinance. (Can you update the Open Container page if so?) The city's open container info page hasn't been updated, at least. If it's not required I think it is a good idea that we explicitly do not get a permit. I think that responsible drinking should be allowed by adults in our parks without explicit approval of the city, and so we ought to set a good example! —PhilipNeustrom
Nicely put Phillip, mirrors my sentiments exactly. At the *MOST* we should touch base with the officers of the sector.... —StevenDaubert
So from my understanding based on this link, it's ok to drink alcohol in parks and greenbelts. "It shall be unlawful for any person to consume any alcoholic beverage......in other areas commonly held open to the public use, except: Any public park and greenbelt, except for....parks within six hundred feet of any primary or secondary school campus property lines at any time as specified above;" Also, if we are going to submit an application for a permit and we're planning for there to be over eleven (11) people at this event, we'd have to submit the application sixteen (16) business days before the event to the dpd. a notice of the application would then be sent to everyone that lives within 200 feet of the bbq. link 2. —JessicaRockwell
I just talked with dispatch, trying to figure out what officer will be running the sector slide hill is in on the 7th during the day, I was given transfer to the sergeant who is in charge of permits... who is out of town until the 8th.... Golden —StevenDaubert
Steven, is the park within 600 feet of a primary or secondary school? if not, i don't think we need a permit as ddrinking alcohol is allowed in parks as i said above. there's also the link. —JessicaRockwell
Thats what I said Jessica, we should just let the officer in charge of the sector know whats going on, that way if someone does call it it he already know what he's getting into, a bunch of friendly people BBQing... I don't see it being an issue, but this way it's covered... twice, and redundancy kicks ass. I never said anything about me trying to get a permit... —StevenDaubert
2007-06-29 23:40:35 Is anyone other than Jaime bringing a BBQ? We might want one that's better than the ones in the park. —BrentLaabs
2007-06-30 03:05:22 omg omg omg omg i am so excited, mostly about jaime cooking. JAIME! i'll bring whatever, you always cook and bring so much food, i'll gladly buy some stuff. holy crap i adore you all. SEE YOU THERE!!! —MichelleAccurso
2007-07-01 23:56:30 Which bus line drops you off by the park? —GregSiu
I think it's the P/Q line.
Does anyone else think 3 is too early? it'll be really hot. also, food is going to be needed. so if ppl come from 3 on, the dispersal of the food seems like it may be lopsided with lots of variety for ppl at the end, and the early ppl not getting much options. never been, so i don't know. just throwing this out there. additionally, some ppl wanted to have a showing of teknolust. i doubt there are outlets for a projector. can you even show rated R movies in a park? —JessicaRockwell
Does someone have a projector?
possibly domies or mark chang.
3pm didn't seem too early when it wasn't going to be 110° out. Thought I'd mention also that the park/class reservation site (log in as "guest") shows a "Partial" reservation for Slide Hill at 4pm. If it's the area pictured then it's likely the part of the park near Manor Pool, on the dolphin side. —KevinChin
2007-07-05 16:38:53 Could those in charge of the Wiki Shirts bring a bunch of them so that those who have been clamoring for them can get one? or two? Sizes M and S? or vice-versa, if you're into that kind of thing? —KevinChin
see, if people don't check Recent Changes, then that kind of haphazard linking will just get a guy into trouble.
2007-07-06 19:47:28 I went there today at around 4:30 PM thinking it was today and nobody was there. I was really disappointed but then I realized I was a day early. :O —EfremRensi
Hey I beat you by six days, showed up last Saturday. Awesome. —EdHenn
2007-07-07 02:45:29 anybody going up from the bay area? —MarieHuynh
2007-07-07 11:46:13 Okay, I'm definitely bringing an assortment of hotdogs and buns, and perhaps some other goodies. I also have a lot of hamburger buns, but no hamburger. So if anyone wants to brings some, post here.
2007-07-07 12:32:47 I'm new and don't know how this whole thing works, but is someone bringing cups, plates, silverware, napkins ect or do we bring our own? —SummerVisitor
In the past, no one has brought anything, and we all simultaneously realize we haven't brought anything, and someone runs off to the store to get those and anything else that has been forgotten. This happens every time, and is pretty much a tradition. Bringing your own is always a safe bet. —jl
So. . . if we do bring cutlery we'll be heralded as messiahs? or will we just be labeled as n00bs and castigated by our peers? Why do I feel it's going to be the latter? —kc
Oh fine, I'll reply so you can stop hitting reload every 10 seconds waiting for a response :) We would never ostracize someone for having the half a brain that the rest of us don't have. If you bring microwave popcorn, on the other hand.... jl
2007-07-07 17:02:37 In ur park droppin burgrs in ur bbq —TarZxf
2007-07-07 20:35:14 Um, the party is still going... We're looking at the pics already! —TarZxf
2007-07-07 21:56:09 Had lots of fun, nice meeting so many people. Next time I'm signing up to bring mustard. —EdHenn
2007-07-08 13:35:27 I move that is page go back to it's casual name of OMGWTFROFLMAOWIKIBBQ as it is now a past event... —StevenDaubert
2007-07-08 19:57:00 Yeah, I will totally add some photos like now, once I edit them and all. Seriously, this comment will help me push myself to do it. I also have great videos of the
death slide and the spinning toy of doom! —MichelleAccurso
2007-07-08 22:16:57 Thanks everyone from Lil and I; we had an awesome time (if not a bit distracted by the birthday party across the way). The pic of Ed on the doomslide (our name for it) is classic. I hope he was able to safely extract the woodchips from his person. Little z and I discovered a distinct difference in speed between this one and the one at Community Park our first time here. . . enough that I'd never again try it on cardboard. Brave folks :) . —KevinChin
2007-07-11 01:10:51 Next time, I'll go back to my old ways of BBQing massive amounts of fish and chicken, but this time I was sattled with way too many hotdogs left over from July 4, thus the zillion hotdogs. When's a good time for the next one? Late Sept for back-to-school-a-que? OMGLOLROFLBBQ-F07? —JaimeRaba
2007-11-06 22:27:01 This BBQ was one of the best. So this is the obligatory, nostalgic, we-need-to-have-another-one comment...
We need to have another one! —MichelleAccurso
indeed. i totally agree. [OMGWTFWIKIBBQ Version 3.0]. So, when shall it be?!!? Maybe the Saturday before finals? December 1?
I think that the plan is to hold a fund raiser at the beginning of December. —JasonAller
