How about close to Sky Harbor so Degoose won’t have to travel so far?
Any time is good, though, as I just finished with my sock drawer so, I’m free for a while.

looking into this more it looks like you can not reserve space in any of the parks i have cked so fare.
so someone(me) would have to sleep on the park bench to hold a spot
i have 2 canopys and 2 folding tables for starters. it would be nice if we could have it be the end of the month before it start to get too hot
larry socks are over rated

Hi Eddy,
Thanks for the PM. I’ll respond here.
6/11 sounds good to me. The beach park is also OK. Anywhere around Mesa,Tempe, AJ, Gilbert…etc is fine, too.
When you finalize, let us know what edibles and potables to bring.
Thanks for setting this up. Looking forward to it.

I am about 10 minutes away from Tempe Town Lakes, so this one will be easy for me. I am sure if we all bring a little something that we will have more than enough food.

Scrappy says he’ll bring chips & buns. I can bring some all beef hot dogs…

Keep me posted on developments…

so the food list so fare is hot dog buns,hamburger buns,hotdogs,chips,bbq baked beans, soda,and plates.
on a side note i did not even think of this till today i will be a the mesa art walk on main street the night before selling my stuff so i will not even get home till like 11:00 then i have to unload everything. we can still do this in the morning i just dont think i will be getting up as early as i was thinking at first. but as long as we have a spot by like 8:00 we should be good. on a side note you area all invited to swing by by booth and offer your suport/ck out my stuff
