 +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.
