Hey Cindy, thanks for getting this started!
The weekend of the 18th-19th sounds great to me. That's probably the earliest I can do it too.
I live down near San Jose and the weather here is pretty awesome--nothing but sunny warm days this entire summer! There are a lot of county parks around here with picnic tables and hiking trails. But that might be a bit far for some people. I guess we'll just have to wait to see where everyone else lives! Oooh, I'm excited already...I hope we can really make this thing happen! *bounces*
