The Birmingham Botanical Gardens was just too beautiful a suggestion to turn down :)

We will plan to meet there at 12:30PM in Blount Plaza in front of the Garden Center. I will be holding a "I *heart* Spark" Canvas Tote Bag so you will know who to look for. :) I'm also 6'2" and should have a small cluster of Tuscaloosa Sparkers with me! :D

www.bbgardens.org/directions.php

Please bring a healthy recipe to share picnic style with the group and plenty of water/yourpreferred beverage. :)

After we eat, those who are interested can stick around and walk around the Gardens -- so be prepared with appropriate attire if you want to get a walk in.

I look forward to meeting you all!!! :D

There are some great parks in the B'ham area. There is Vulcan park, it does have a $6 admin, but there is a museum, observation tower and picnic area.
www.visitvulcan.com -if you want to check it out.
Aldridge Gardens or the botanical gardens are both places that we could meet for a healthy lunch with no admin and if people wanted there is plenty of walking that can be done.
there is also homewood park. Not directly in b'ham but there is area for picnic and there is also gym stuff for those sparkers who wont be able to get a babysitter.
There are a few other parks in b'ham area as well.

WOOHOO! :D This is coming up soon, so now that everyone is interested, I'd like to nail down a PLACE and TIME.

I was working with TAPPANGA to scout out some parks, but her attention has been drawn away from Sparks temporarily due to personal life stuff. SO!

Since I'm not familiar with Birmingham Area Parks -- does anyone have a good suggestion as to what would be the ideal location for our get together??? :D

And I'm thinking 11AM maybe for meetup? Thoughts?

Thanks to you two that have responded so far! :) Please make sure to indicate if you are interested in attending the meetup if it takes place in Birmingham -- I wouldn't want to be counting people that aren't able to attend just in case.

So....

I'm one of the Leaders for the Totally Tuscaloosa Team, and I'm very interesting in having a LARGER SparkGathering on this weekend -- I'm thinking Saturday -- and I'm thinking Birmingham is the place to do it so my Tuscaloosa Sparkers can meet up with some of you folk.

For the Spread the Spark Summer Challenge SparkTeam there is a kick off challenge for Show Your Spark Weekend -- read the details here:
www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
sa
geboard_thread.asp?board=0x33212x254R>51794


Essentially: Wear your SparkGear to a local SparkRally, take pictures, join the team and upload them, and have a chance to win prizes! :)

This is exciting, but most exciting to me is the opportunity to have a larger Alabama Gathering of Sparkers! :)

Please let reply if you'd be interested so that I can see if planning to have this gathering in Birmingham (vs. doing a smaller one in Tuscaloosa w/ just the T-Town Sparkers) is worth trying to get together. :)

ALSO -- if you have any ideas about a great place to meet. I've been thinking a healthy potluck in the park or something along those lines, but I'm open to suggestions! :)

THANKS!
