What did we do at Kensington Park???

Let me first give you a brief background of everything such as weather and traffic conditions. The weather conditions were very much favourable for picnic but the traffic conditions were not. The entire I-96W was blocked from the very starting till the destination. Initially we thought there is an accident but it was as usual because of CONSTRUCTION. Many of us tried all our direction senses and of-course we managed to save around one hour. Hold on……let me tell you how much time did it really take to reach Kensington park…..guess what… it took around two and a half hour for most of us. So, instead of 2pm we managed to get there by 3.30-4.00pm.
Then it was time to finalize the spot. As per our commitment we decided to grab
Picnic spot A only. And we were quite successful in picking a portion of it for ourselves. Now, some arrangement is always necessary to make the place appropriate for our convenience, like bench movement etc etc…..and definitely near a place where the trees are nearby to tie our Volleball net. You can see that our team is really working hard and ‘someone is getting the work done and making sure nothing goes wrong’.
Finally, everything got settled and now it was time to play Volleyball, and why not….snacks were always there to munch in between.
Budwizer for those who like its sour taste and Coke for those who don’t or even for those who are a bit double-entendre and like to have both. For those who like none of these things there was Fruit juice and our Nature Fresh water obviously.
Pizza Guys : This time our pizza guys were Adesh & Chethan, courtesy PIZZA HUT. FYI, we ordered equal quantities of veggie and non-veg pizzas along with Garlic Breads so that everyone gets his choice. But unfortunately, lots of people missed the party and hence we had an abundance of Pizzas.
Finally after finishing at most one large pizza of each kind and some of garlic breads we all were ready to play Volleyball. We quickly selected two teams.
Team A : Vivek, Amit, Gurminder, Kiran, Raghavender and myself. Team B : Balaji, Anil, Chethan, Prashant, and Vishal & Adesh. We played three games to decide which team is the best. Finally we found out Team A was quite strong and needless to say beer played a vital role in making this team strong. We were playing like….one point, one gulp of beer, another point another gulp of beer, one game then some slices of pizza or garlic bread. Everyone tried to incorporate all kinds of strategies to win the game. Team B was quite good in mis-counting the points. Here we really missed the key members of our team SALWE and SAMEER to keep statistics and for better score keeping. They were supposed to be there but due to some unavoidable circumstances they couldn’t make it to the event. Overall everybody enjoyed the game. And unanimously Team A was declared CHAMPION. (View picture of the game and then the entire team.)
After that we decided to go for some boating but everyone was so tired that we finally decided to go back. In between some people quickly managed to grab some beatiful scenes around near the beach. Finally, we took some quick group pictures and headed together home.
I would like to thank Amit, Adesh and Chethan for their great help in organizing this event. And I appreciate all who could make to the event. Other photos are also there.If any of you guys want to have the original photos, then contact me or Amit.

One more thing, since there were very few cars at the event, we decided to return the park entry fee to everyone.
It was really fun to be a part of this event.
