We are going to mix things up a little for the next lunch meet. To keep in tune with the summer events we have decided to have a picnic at Knoebel's Grove in Elysburg, Pa. For those know don't know about Knoebel's Grove, it is a family oriented amusement park with a free admission. You only pay for the rides that you wish to ride by purchasing tickets, like at a carnival. There are lots of rides including the world class roller coaster "The Phoenix".
For the picnic I ask that everyone contribute something in the form of food, utensils, condiments, money, etc. Alcohol is not permitted at this park! There are free pavilions and I rented a gas griddle for us to use for the day. Reply to this post with how many people and what you will be bringing, be specific. There is a grocery store in nearby Catawissa if you wish to pick up stuff at the last minute.
If anyone would like to meet up in Hazleton ahead of time and follow us to the park that is fine. Just let me know and I will set up a meeting spot. It will be a nice back road drive to the park.
If you would like, we will be meeting at the Southern Columbia School on rt 487 (aka Southern Drive) at 11:30am. Then caravan over to Knoebles before noon. click here for direction
I reserved a section of Pavilion "O" in the picnic section of the park. Pavilion O" in located near the main parking lot and near Pavilion "U" (see map below). There is a small parking section between pavilion "O" and "U". We will try to park there.
