2014 Annual Section Picnic PDF Print E-mail


Section members and family are invited to 2013 Annual Picnic - Potluck.
Date: Sunday, August 24th, 2014
Time: 12:00 - 4:00
Place: Picnic Area #1, Lakewood Park, (nominal address: 834 Lakechime Dr), Sunnyvale, CA 94089. The picnic area is on Silverlake Dr., near the intersection with Lakehaven Dr., not on Lakechime Dr.
(same park as last the 5 years)

Register to attend - no cost to Silicon Valley Section Members. Click on the Acteva registration button to register only if you will be coming. We'd like to figure out how many plates/drinks to provide to the the group. That's right: we'll supply water, soda, juice drinks, and ice. Lots-a-ice. It's OK, when you sign in to bring wine/beer - that's OK with Lakewood Park, since we're having food, too.
This substitutes for the section's dinner forum normally offered on a 3rd Wednesday. We're back to our regularly-scheduled dinner forum at the Biltmore Hotel in September.
Bring your favorite dish to share. When you arrive, there will be an opportunity to label what's special (like vegetarian, vegan, dairy/no dairy, no wheat, no gluten).
Show us your culinary skills. Here's how to gauge how much to bring: bring 6 servings of the dish for each adult (or pair of children under 12) coming in your group. A bucket from the Colonel, a pound of a prepared salad, a pie might count as 6 servings, a 1-pound pack of bakery cookies. A watermelon might count as 12 servings. If you bring a serving implement(recommended... we can't provide a huge number), please label it with your name.
Games and prizes for everyone!

This is your invitation: click on the Acteva link above ONLY if you plan to come.
Come hang out with QUALITY people!!
More examples of things you might consider: cheese cubes, salty bag snacks, a taco salad, a cube container of inexpensive wine, loaves of garlic & french bread, egg rolls, tuna salad, egg salad, macaroni salad.
Responses to date(8/15):  salmon patties, a pineapple, Indian samosas, a green salad with Italian dressing, chicken salad, and egg rolls.
