A Day at the Park – Aug. 30

A number of folks have been asking me about getting together at the park, so we’ve picked a date and hope to see many of you there!

On Saturday, August 30, at 10:00 AM, we will host a "meet & greet" event at the Rock Point Park property. This will be a casual time of swapping stories, meeting new friends, and just generally hanging out. It is bound to be hot, and maybe a bit rainy, so come prepared for anything! Bruce will bring a large cooler with bottled water and some light snacks (healthy, of course). If you would like to bring a picnic lunch, feel free. I plan on being there until around 2pm, but you can certainly stay longer if you like.

Summertime is probably not the best time to visit the property. The forested areas will be quite overgrown with weeds, brush, and lots of poison ivy. So, if you plan to head off the main roadway, wear heavy jeans and long sleeve shirts. If you do this, you might want to bring cooler clothes to change into in case you overheat. Be sure to bring some insect repellant, and maybe even some alcohol, or soapy water, to wipe down suspected poison ivy encounters.

We don’t have any special activities planned. It will most likely be too hot for games, but we might walk around the area a bit. Bring some folding chairs, and find some shade. It will be fun to sit around and get to know each other!

If you have any questions, please email Bruce, or call him at 724-869-3370.

If you can join us, please let a comment here on this article to let us know. Thanks!

Hope to see you there!

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE

For anyone attending the Rock Point Park (.com) get-together on Saturday, 8/30 from 10am until 2pm, please note the following:

The Rock Point Boat Club has requested that we park our cars along the train tracks near the site of the former Matheny Inn.  We need to insure that parking is orderly, and that we park at least 20 feet from the tracks. Also, be sure not to block the turn-around area near the train bridge. Please refer to the picture for directions (click to enlarge):

I will try to be there early enough to be able to show you where to park as you come in. If I am not there when you arrive, please don’t wander too far from your car in case I need to ask you to move it.

At this point, it doesn’t look like many people will be able to make it, but in case more decide to come, we need to make sure we park in a way that does not obstruct the main road, or the Boat Club property.

Thanks much! Hope to see you there!

Bruce

  1. My family and I just returned from a drive through Rock Point. We didn’t get out of our car. I wasn’t sure if we were allowed to park anywhere near the boat club. We would like to attend the August 30 event. Please let me know where everyone will be meeting at 10:00 a.m. Thanks.

  2. I was thinking I would come, and now that I’ve heard His Royal Highness the Prince Barack is going a progress through Beaver on Sunday, I think it’s an even better idea to get out of town. See you there!
