Thinking of doing another GTG/cookout at Patapsco State Park in Elkridge, MD. The pavilion that holds 20 people/cars and is available October 14,20,21,27 or 28 as of today. I will take care of reserving the pavilion if others bring food.

Finally a reply. I know that bar. I'm thinking 10/21/12. I did this 2yrs ago and we had a good turn out. Pavilion has a fireplace so if someone could bring a little firewood. Also, could someone start a list of food stuff (I'm not good at that). Have room at the pavilian for 20 cars but more room down the street if we need it. Please post this on other sites. This is first come, first serve for parking. Go O's!!!
