This year, the picnic will be held on Saturday, May 30th, 2009. Please post here if you plan on attending, how many will be in your party, and which item(s) you'd like to bring.

Children are welcome as long as there is a non penturning adult to accompany them and watch over them while we are in the shop talking, well, shop. Activities for kids around the age of 4 will be provided (playset, moon bounce, wading pool if warm enough), older kids may need to bring their own forms of entertainment if they aren't interested in talking shop.

I'll be there, total of 7-8 attending, 2 adults, the rest kids 2-12. We'll bring fruit, since we're bringing the kids that will eat most of it anyway. I'll bring an assortment of worthless wood blanks for a door prize.

Sounds good guys, updated the original post. Bruce, if you know what side dish you are bringing, I'll update that as well, so we don't get duplicates.

Dibs on the Apple Cake!

Using my usual feeble excuse , the bachelor will bring an assortment of chips and dip. And I'll try to get there early enough so they are actually appetizers!

Just need to cover the basics, regular soda, diet soda, and regular caffeine free soda. Up to you if you want to do cans or 2 liters, name brands or store brands. Might also want to get some bottled water, but again, up to you.

Plenty of on the street curb side parking no matter what you drive.

It's not a bus, Just an 11 passenger van. OK, It's basically a bus .
