  • Grill and cooking -- I might be able to bring my Grill with Propane Tank. Is a permit required? # Sidepocket (Sidepocket {talk}) 14:59, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Sidepocket: I think only charcoal grills are allowed, if you have one, or if I can borrow one and you help me operate it.--Pharos (talk) 20:09, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
    I can do the later option, I'm knowledgeable at grilling in all forms and I'll bring some food stuff and people can bring in the rest. #Sidepocket (Sidepocket {talk}) 2:22, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Good point. Looking at the Park List we have two options. Have the grill in a grill zone and bring the food to the picnic area OR have everyone pre-grill a set number of stuff and bring it to the picnic. # Sidepocket (Sidepocket {talk}) 9:59, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Sidepocket: Yes, we specifically picked a location that is in the grill zone, so we'll be good in that regard.--Pharos (talk) 16:44, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Suggest next WikNic tshirt that say "In the Grill Zone!" :-) -- {{User0|BrillLyle]
