Thoughts of the event.
Site “L” is pretty good. Mostly shaded.
30-35 people stopped by for food and conversation. 20 or some of those people were from the Hacker Bike Ride from OLS.
Everyone that came had plenty to eat.
We increased the amount of hamburgers this year there was a little too much. The remaining buns and burgers were given to picnic attendees in exchange for a donation. We had tofu burgers, veggie dogs, vegetables and coleslaw… I think this went over well.
Clean up started around 16:30. Most of us were packed up and gone by 17:00 or so. Some guests stayed around chatting.
We had 1 BBQ - it was plenty to cook the amount of food we had.
We had a few guests that took a some photos. We should get them put on the main site
We had some left over items: foam plates, napkins, plastic cutlery, metal serving spoon, metal tongs, 2 serving bowls, salt & pepper, garbage bags and the frizbee, I have put all of this into a bin, ready for next year.
