Our annual club picnic is coming up next month. It is scheduled for July 24th, 2014, which is a regularly scheduled club meeting date (4th Thursday of the month) and will be at the Rice Museum.
Plan on setting up at 5 and we’ll eat at 6. The museum will stay open to allow you to tour, so bring the family and a friend or two.
This year, Taylor Hunt will be grillmaster. Be sure to offer him some assistance if you can. The picnic is a potluck, with the club providing a main dish like burgers (I don’t know what he’s planning yet, so it might be chili or chicken), buns, bottled water and coffee. Members are asked to bring a side dish to share and also bring your own plates/bowls, utensils (including ones for your shared dish) and a round table cloth would be a nice touch too.
The museum only has about 70 chairs and around 20 tables, so if you can bring a table and a few chairs, that would be helpful.
Also, we will be holding a silent auction to raise some money to cover costs for the shin-dig. If you can bring some jewelry, slabs or rough along with a written note as to what the material is, along with any info on it’s history and value, that would be appreciated.
I need some volunteers to help set up the auction tables. Please let me know if you can help with that.
