Father's Day Cottonwood Cruise & Picnic - Saturday, June 10

29 posts in this topic

The 8th Annual Father's Day Cruse and Picnic is ON, once again.
This is the weekend before Father's Day so everyone can still celebrate the holiday with family.

 

The picnic destination in Cottonwood's Garrison Park, last year, was almost as perfect as you could ask for. Plenty of picnic bench seating under a huge ramada, and additional shade trees for those that want a true blanket picnic.

 

You are required to bring your own sack lunch or food to grill for a picnic.  

  • Two charcoal grills are available to cook your own, but you will also be required to bring any items necessary to grill. E.g. Charcoal, fire, utensils, etc.
  • There's one medium sized ramada with 6 picnic tables, a nearby restroom, and a playground.
  • There is limited parking next to the ramada, but plenty of spaces, just a short distance, SE of the ramada and playground.

 

WHEN: Saturday, June 10th (Weekend before Father's Day)

Destination: Garrison Park, Cottonwood, AZ (Picnic spot)

Who: ACE members post up in this thread if you can make it, I'll update the 1st post with the list.

Logistics & Directions:

   Multiple valley congregation points will form and all proceed to the McDonalds @ I-17 / Carefree Hwy for the launch point.

   Depending on participation from the far West, Wickenburg may possibly become a final launch point TBA later.

 

SOUTH / EAST Side:
AZ Mills El Pollo Loco (east side of mall) - Travel Time to McDonalds launch ~40 minutes - Suggested Departure 7:30am

 

North Phoenix Launch Point: Departure Time @ 8:15AM

Carefree Highway (AZ-74) to Wickenburg.

AZ-89N toward Congress, up Yarnell Hill to Prescott.

North via Willow Creek Rd. to Pioneer Park - Which allows us to pickup additional ACE folk. Departure still the same @ 10:45

to 89A up Mingus Mountain, through Jerome, to Cottonwood's Garrison Park for the picnic.

The optional leg to Sedona will be after lunch and could include a watering hole stop (Open Range Grill & Tavern?).

  I'm open to suggestions here, especially for size of group vs. nearby parking availability.

 

What to bring / extra Info (Also check the top area for on-site accommodations):

Sack lunch & Drink or Something to grill (2 charcoal grills available - bring your own charcoal & fire)

Picnic blanket, folding chair - On-site facilities provide 6 picnic tables under the ramada.
