I Cant Believe It Is That Time Of Year Again!

Our plans for this year are very similar to the past few years. We plan
on having food available from setup on Saturday to breakfast on Sunday.

As we have in the past, we request that all members bring a dish to share
with everyone for our Saturday dinner at 6pm. In the past few years, we have shared a
wonderful "spread" from salads to cakes, baked beans to cookies! The Club will be
providing the hamburgers and hot dogs and all of the condiments.

Please remember to furnish your own drinks. The Club will provide water
and coffee.

Reminders and updates will be sent out during the week.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at

Thank you and see you there!

Patrick O'Neil

For all you new members, the location will be the same as in years past. We will start setting up early Saturday morning at Hunt Fountain Park. Directions
