Geocache Description:


SLAGA Spring Picnic Saturday May 7, 2016

This year, the SLAGA Spring Picnic will be at St. Louis County’s Clydesdale Park. This is located near Lindbergh Ave. and Hwy 21 (Tesson Ferry) in Southwest St. Louis County. The address is 9801 Green Park Road 63123.

A short bit of history about the park: In July of 1971, the Park and Recreation Advisory Board members visited several south county sites. After careful review, they recommended the Gravois Creek area for a future park. The property was acquired with money from the 1969 Bond Issue funds, and a matching grant from the Bureau of Outdoor Recreation for L&WC funds was received for the first phase development. The park opened to the public in the spring of 1976. Originally named Gravois Creek Park, it was renamed in 1983 to recognize the longtime interest in Clydesdale horses of August Busch Junior, a nearby property owner and president of Anheuser-Busch Brewery. The park is 117 acres and has a picnic shelter, playground, restrooms, baseball fields, several park trails and is an access point to Grant’s Trail. There is also plenty of parking.

*** IMPORTANT NOTE: I didn’t realize until after I booked it, this shelter has only 14 picnic tables. I will be bringing extra tables from one of the community centers, but if you have a camp chair, it would great if you could bring it. ***

DETAILS:

SLAGA will be supplying the hot dogs, brats, hamburgers and buns along with condiments, plates, napkins and utensils. We ask that you bring a side dish or other food to share and your drinks.

The prices will be as follows:

• SLAGA Premium Member Adults $5.00
• Non-Premium Member Adults $7.00
• Kids 5-12 $3.00
• Kids 4 and under free

Please post your "Will Attend" log as soon as you can with the number of people attending, your preference of meat and how many you'd like.

This allows us to order what we need without buying too much. Please list what dish you will be bringing as well.

We will be having a 50-50 drawing (you must be present to win), Geo Bingo, Silent Auction, Travel Bug Table, the Ammo Can Toss and Closest to the Pin contest.
