There will be a Gas Activist Picnic on Saturday August 28, 9 AM-9 PM. All gas drilling activists in NY & PA are invited. It will be at Chenango Valley State Park, Chenango Forks, NY in the Pine Grove Picnic Area. There is a beach a short walk from the picnic area, walking trails and kayaking in the Chenango River. There are camp sites and cabins for rent. 16 cabins and 120 camp sites are available on Saturday. Reserve early if you want one.There are also 27 first come first serve camp sites available( if you want one call Kevin at 607-341-7842 for more info). There are charcoal grills and they will be stocked and hot by 11 AM. Please bring food and for your party, and feel free to bring extra to share if you like. Non-disposable plates utensils & drink ware are encouraged. I’d discourage glass beverage containers ( aka beer bottles) to minimize breakage. There are 6 electric outlets in the pavilion. Cost per car is $7. The park is in a rural area and is mostly wooded
We have all been hard at work on this for many months or years. It is time for some play, to meet each other and and see who we all are in person, not just on line.
There is no agenda, nor is one planned. There will probably be much informal talk about gas drilling, groups we are working with and in general, how’s it going.
I doubt that there will be any official sponsoring group list, but if there is and you would like your group listed as a sponsor please email me.
We will try to have name tags with your name & county on them so it is easier to meet.
Chenango Valley State Park is is 3.45 hours from NYC, 1.75 hrs. from Bath, 1.15 hrs. from Syracuse, and 2.15 hrs.from Albany.
