Sunday in the Park with Whyt Whey

Denizens of Whyt Whey and the surrounding lands, join us for a park picnic to celebrate the summer and spend time in good company after so long apart!

We will gather on Sunday, July 25, starting at 2:00 PM — unless the weather is inclement, in which case we will announce a postponement to the following Sunday, August 1.

[UPDATE, July 25: the weather forecast for this afternoon has been downgraded to “scattered thunderstorms,” so it looks like we need to push our picnic back to the rain date, next Sunday, August 1. The long-range forecast suggests next Sunday will be dry and pleasant — I look forward to seeing you all then!]

[UPDATE, August 1: Today’s weather is looking pleasant — comfortable temperatures and no rain until late in the day — so we’re moving ahead with our picnic plans for this afternoon. Pack your lunch and join us at 2:00 on the Great Hill!]

Please meet us on the Great Hill in Central Park, near 105th Street at Central Park West. (You can take the B or C trains to 103rd Street, enter the park and take your first left to climb the hill. Alternately, the park entrance at West 106th Street offers both stairs and a sloping path up to the top.)

Bring your own picnic lunch; as per Society policy, no food will be provided. (Pack something from home, or stop at one of the basic delis in the neighborhood before entering the park.)

After lunch, folks who would like to take a bit of a trek can walk a one-mile loop through the picturesque North Woods, visiting the stone blockhouse and the ravine’s waterfalls.

We look forward to seeing everyone and hearing what you’ve been doing and learning and making over the last year — or if you’re new to the SCA, come and meet us in person to find out more about what we do and how you can get more involved. 

This is a free, informal event and is open to everyone. Period garb is encouraged but entirely optional — feel free to come as you are. 

Please contact me if you have any questions, or I’ll see you there!
