It struck the Kilroys and me as we were talking, that a large preponderance of East Bay Area events happen in the eastern and southern counties thereof (probably due to the preponderance of cachers therein!) And we agreed that there's so much lovely parkland on our side of the hills, that it'd be a shame not to host our caching friends in some of it.
That being so, please join the Kilroys and me, at the Anna Costa picnic area of beautiful Roberts Regional Recreational Area, in the Oakland/Piedmont hills. There're barbecue grills, and there'll be hot coals available, and a certain amount of stock laid in in the food and drink department, but you're encouraged to bring what you'd like to share. Festivities commence at 11am or so, and conclude when we're durn good and ready, or at park curfew, whichever comes first. There'll be time and space for demos, or for visiting a couple of nearby traditional caches (if you haven't already found them), or whatever else suits us. We're open to suggestion! The picnic area holds 50 people, but I'm sure nobody will mind if we spill over onto the lawn. There's a $4 fee to park in the rec area's lots on weekends. Hope to see you there!
