What

A bbq and general tomfoolery day. See the mailing list for ideas.

Where

There will be a group meeting up from the hackspace. Precise GPS co-ordinates will be posted here when we have settled at a spot.

Somewhere in Shoreditch park.

When

13:00 on 25th of April (Easter Monday)

Fire

If worst comes to the worst we get a few disposable BBQs.

  • Bring something heatproof on which to place the BBQs

Non-Fire Related Testing Equipment

  • I intend on donating/loaning a small amount of the following items - Renski 06:53, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Bin Bags (lets make sure we can do this again by not trashing the place)
    • Paper Plates
    • BBQ Utensils

Food and drink

Like any picnic, we're going to play this by ear. Some people will bring more, some less, but it usually works out in the end. If we find we're short, we'll make a run to the nearest supermarket.

Hacking

Possible hackery:

  • Sam: fire poi cancelled due to combined bike and car acrobatics
  • Dave: a kite for aerial videoing
  • Martin: mobile soundsystem
  • Others: musical stuff [3]

More ideas:

  • Bottle rockets
  • Long-range wifi
  • Locks ... for the first English "Lock-pick-nick" :)

Amenities

  • There is a co-op and cash point nearby.
  • The Rosemary Branch pub is close by (buy a pint to use the loo?)
  • Next Off-Licences: here and here
  • Katie can bring a first aid kit?
