For the first (and last) time ever –
we will hold our Second Annual Picnic
on Saturday December 4th
Meeting at Mor Chit, 9am (while it is still nice and cool)
We will take a short walk through Suan Rot Fai, to a mystery location, for fun and frolics in the Park.
Last year was great fun : see the photos here
Update: see the map below. We will be somewhere near the rec circle, which is close to the sports centre where there are bathrooms and a shop (I think). We also need a volunteer to go hire a bicycle so that people can make bathroom or supply trips (bathrooms will only be a few minutes away) . Try to be at the BTS on time though – as we can’t say exactly where we end up – sometimes the park guards move us along…. Click the map for a larger version.
Bring food, and more food. Bring some water or other drinks (not beer! (you know who you are!)). Bring a small towel or something to sit on.
Provided will be a plastic ground sheet to put the spread on, some paper plates and cups, napkins. Anything else needed? Please mention below, because we monks don’t know anything about food, or picnics ….
Oh yes, rubbish bin bags will be taken too.
Well picnics are fun. It’s a nice way to meet some of the other regulars, and to try Rubby’s Colombian custard (there are bathrooms near by). Don’t feel afraid that you don’t know anyone – None of us know everyone. The idea is, if you have an interest in meditation or meditators, yoga or just picnic food, come by yourself and mingle a bit.
Please leave a comment below if you will be joining – so as to gauge supplies.
