SFGAmWorld Park meetup?

Going to a park and want to meet up with other members of this site. Feel free to post where you will be going!
Postby Guy_With_A_Stick on August 5th, 2015, 11:54 pm
So... seeing that the BeerCades planned didn't work out(especially for those under 21), why don't we all do an 'official' park meetup? At SFGAm? I live 5 minutes away, so practically any day is fine with me. I know 2 other users are going on Sunday. Maybe then?

Discuss away to see what we should do.

Edit: Moved to Meetings and Gatherings Forum

I'm also going Sunday.

But shouldn't this be in the Meet-Up Forum?

Oh. I actually never knew of such a subforum. :/

Moderators can move as they please.

As for a meetup place, is the HTS gazebo/plaza ok?

I'm still new I guess despite being on the forum for a year so meeting up with the other members sounds like a good idea :D

So is this continuing in the Meetup Forums? I didn't find anything.

It seems like the other side always wins on American Eagle :?
Also, I've ridden Goliath 23 times in one day. HBU? :roll: :P

Continuing from the other topic, the current plan for the meetup is on Sunday, the 9th. An ERT is on that day as well, so yay.

I just found out I might not be able to come to the park on Sunday. At least not at opening. I might be going later. 2:30-3 ish.

I think there should be 2 or 3 congregations; 1 near opening, (maybe) 1 in the middle of the day around 2 or 3, and one later for the ERT.

I think a good meetup place is the HTS Gazebo/plaza. If not, please share a better meetup place.

Given that there is a good chance of rain tomorrow, I think it'd probably be a good day to take a trip to the park... Should keep a fair amount of people away... I'd be down for putting some faces with names from here...

How does the ERT work? I see that you can get a wristband for it starting 2 hours before close, but don't see any mention of the actual time for the ERT...

^ it's almost always an hour or 2 after closing. So probably 10-11 or 12

I just hope the weather cooperates to the point where rides are still open. Earlier the forecast said thunderstorms almost all day tomorrow, thankfully that's changed.

Edit: Image

Looks pretty good actually. Only downside is 1 P.M, but it doesn't say thunderstorms so yea.

If you look at the current radar, you have the best possible scenario... The majority of the rain will be south of the park... Any thunder will be in the south suburbs... There might be some showers at the park itself right at opening or a little after, but not an all day thing... With most of the Chicago area being wet, it should keep crowds to a minimum... So I'll be making the trip up to the park from the Southwest suburbs today...

I'm heading to Goliath and X-Flight at rope drop, so if anyone wants to meet up, I can swing by the Hometown Gazebo at Noon... I'll be wearing light khaki colored Under Armor pants, a blue North Face t-shirt, and a blue/white Tennessee Smokies baseball cap... If it's raining, I may have on a blue Patagonia rain jacket possibly... My name is Derek and I'll be solo at the park today, so if anyone wants to hang, you're more than welcome to 8)

If anyone is gonna want to meet up later, just post here... I'll be getting food outside the park at so e point, so I can get access to WI-fi at that point...

I'll be there later, but I'm wearing red shorts and a dark grey Alcatraz T Shirt. Gazebo seems to be the best meetup place, so yeah. See you all at the park!

Park is somewhat busy, but not overwhelming... Did manage to start the day with a Raging Bull marathon... Single rider seat filling, FTW! Curious to see how busy the ERT session is gonna be... Anyone at the park wanna swing by the gazebo around 6pm or so? I'll swing by there at that time 8)

I'll be there pretty soon. I'd say around 4:45. Any time between 5 and 6 is fine with me.

They weren't terrible. I got there at 6:45, had a snack and dinner. Rode Clipper, Loggers, Choas, Raging Bull, Viper, Demon, and Giant Drop all at least once in Standby. Not to mention, double rides on Goliath with a Green Pass. Then marathoned V2 and Batman during ERT.
