    This year it will be on Sunday, June 10th again! Plan accordingly. Also if there is enough interest we can have it at Irvine Regional park instead.

    Here is some posts for last years event.
    So Cal meet and greet. June 10th
    So Cal BBQ June 10th, Final Count.
    So Cal BBQ followup pictures

    I'm 2 hours south of Santa Barbara, 2 hours north of San Diego, and 2 hours or less from apple valley area, so I'm basically central to most of the Couthern California CK5ers.

    Here's my plan. A BBQ/football/fishing/whatever at Irvine Regional Park. I'll be driving project torque there. Theres plenty of room to park all our trucks. I'll bring my video and picture cameras. I may bring my little fishing pole, but doubt I'll be fishing too much. Everyone bring your own food and drinks. Bring extra if you want. We are going to bring our golden retriever also.


    Here is the Zoo Information

    Park Info:
    Tables and barbecues are located throughout the 477 acre park with convenient parking and restroom facilities nearby. A paved bicycle/walking trail meanders through the central park providing easy access to six playgrounds, four softball fields, two horse shoe pits, volleyball courts and lagoon.

    A four mile equestrian trail skirts the perimeter of the central park providing scenic views of the park and it's natural scenery. Horse trailers can be parked on the north perimeter of the train station parking lot. A lookout trail is on the north slope of the natural area where a covered shelter, watering trough and water fountain are available.

    Group Picnic Areas... Three group picnic areas are available for large group picnics of 155 or more. Most have built-in barbecues, sinks and permanent tables. All groups of 100 or more are required to obtain a group activity permit a minimum of 15 working days prior to the day of use. Rates for reserving group picnic areas are variable according to size and type of group.

    Group Area I is located near the lagoon and boathouse. Maximum capacity is 200, minimum group size is 155. A nearby ball field and volleyball area may be used on a "first-come" basis.

    Group Area II is located near the bandstand/stage. Maximum capacity is 200, minimum group size is 155. A nearby ball field and volleyball area may be used on a "first-come" basis.

    Group Area III is located in the back of the park with a more secluded atmosphere. Maximum capacity is 250, minimum group size is 155. There is a playground nearby and the playing field is again "first-come".

    Group Area IV is located in the Villa Park Loop area. This area has a maximum capacity of 350 people and a minimum of 155. The nearby playground and volleyball court can be used on a "first-come" basis.

    Bandstand/Stage... The outdoor bandstand/stage is located near the Visitor Center in the central park area.

    The stage faces Group Picnic Area II, and can be lighted for evening programs.

    Concessions... Bicycle and aquacycle rentals are located adjacent to the historic boathouse. Rentals are available throughout the summer, weekends and holidays. For more information visit www.IrvineParkRR.com.

    The Lakeside Snack Bar is located adjacent to the historic boathouse. A variety of hot and cold food is availble, as well as, picnic supplies. Operating hours are seasonally variable.

    Children's pony rides are provided 11:00a.m. to 5:00 p.m., weekends and holidays. When local schools are out for summer vacation, the rides are open everyday, except Monday. Exact operating schedule is variable.

    [​IMG]The Irvine Park Railroad and snack shop is located across from the pony rides and is open everyday from 10:00a.m. to 4:00 p.m.. A 10 minute train ride meanders past the two lakes and circles through an oak woodland. There are also four party pavilions that can be reserved through the Train Station.

    Sycamore Hill group area is the newest reservable private picnic area located within the park. Requests for this area should be directed to the Irvine Park Railroad at (714)997-3968.

    Yeah, I wanted to make this a public poll, and multiple choice, but I hit submit too fast. I'll to a final head count 2 weeks before it again like I did last year. I found another park here that is larger, more nature like, and it has a zoo on the property. I'll post pictures of it and maybe we'll have it there instead.

    If I'm in town I'll be there. Just don't know my schedule yet, but if you finalize a date I'll put it in my calendar and try to work travel around it.

    Branndon,

    I will be there again. My family and I had a blast last time. For the children's sake which includes mine I wouldn't mind having it at the park with the zoo. It will give the kids a chance to do something extra. Any date will work for me. It is far in advance that I will reschedule around that day.
