PNW Meet and Greet in June

I have edited this for the key details to be up front.

I have opened a topic to see if we can organize a meet and greet for the growing PacificNorthWest SMB family.

Date: June 19th, Saturday for a barbeque and meet and greet.

Location: Lake Sammamish State Park

State of Washington: Lake Sammamish State Park?
2000 Northwest Sammamish Road,
Issaquah, WA 98027-8918(425) 455-7010?


There is a click and zoom map after the link
http://www.stateparks.com/lake_sammamish.html

I'll show up at 2pm and will start a grill at 4pm or so. Given my kids, I'll probably be heading out at at the earlier end of the evening.

Bring what you like to drink and eat. If it is poor weather, I'll bring a canopy.

While they have firepits, my first priority will be finding parking where we can be parked together.

On the list expecting to attend are:
Seattle
Twolost
Roonie
CJ
Bitburger
Railbait (late arrival)
Mjeffery
BrianpGreen
Velogeo
Jimapal


If anyone else is in the area, they are welcome to show up. I'll treat the first beer or soda if you aren't too picky about your choices.

The parking lot isn't so large that you will get lost, just look for the big vans:-)

You read my mind. I was out of town that weekend but let me talk to my bride and see if we can move a couple of things.

Count me in. I should be around and it would be great to meet some other local folks with SMB's.

Also fun to show off my new to me 06 SMB......

Re: PNW Meet and Greet in June

Thanks for taking the lead and making this thread. I work Saturdays, but I could get there around 6pm, so as long as folks are still there at that time, I'd make the drive.

I know last time folks talked about a more remote location and maybe a camp over, but Lake Sammamish did work well, as it has a large parking area and is a central location. To get a larger group together this time it seems like this would work and there can always be more meets later.

A few weeks ago the Northwest Overland Society had a weekend meet at the American River lodge, off of Hwy 410 on the east slope of the Cascades. It was an ideal location for meets of this kind for a weekend event, but does require a reservation and payment to get it.

Thanks for setting this up! Single day is a great idea, much easier to fit in to the summer schedule My kids will flip out seeing so many vans in one place!

I'll be there. I'm still shopping and I'd like to come by and check out your vans.

Re: PNW Meet and Greet in June

From the portland area & considering SMB sprinter RB, maybe with a pop top. We would like to see other SMB sprinters. Any of these going? Could make the trip. Or anyone in the Portland area within a few hours drive that would be willing to show us your rig.
Thanks
