Where: 23675 West Lake Road
What: Celebration and BBQ
Bring:
  • lawn chair or something to sit on

Please state in your log which excursion (if any) you would like to do:

I will need four volunteers to lead each of the above group(s). So far plumbrokeacres and 2canam have offered to take a group. Please let me know if you are interested.

If you are not interested in going anywhere, don't worry there will be someone at the event location all afternoon. Feel free to hang out there for the afternoon.

The BBQ starts at 5:00 and there also be a campfire. I will supply salads, buns and pop. I will also make up some burgers to throw on the BBQ or campfire. Bring steak or chicken or whatever if you would prefer that. We will celebrate 10 years of our pastime with food, drink and tales. Anyone is welcome to set up a tent (there is lots of room) and spend the night and really focus on the celebrating aspect. Let me know in your "will attend" log that you are planning on doing this. Please also indicate in that log how many people will be accompanying you to give me an idea of what to expect.

Please park along the west side of the road.
