Chapter Picnic

The Chapter Picnic is right around the corner! Come join your CLCA family at the Chapter Picnic at Cuesta Park in Mountain View on Sunday, September 10, starting at 11 a.m. The horseshoe tournament will start promptly at 11 a.m., with a barbecue lunch at 12:30 p.m. Thank you to our picnic committee (Chair Rick Camin, Alice Domine, Vicky Parrott, Michelle Ott, Cindy Singletary, Girvin and Lesley Peters, and Charlene and Leo Ott) for putting this event together.

Games for all ages will be available throughout the day.  Start practicing your horseshoe skills. Ed and Jonathon Ott are still the team to beat. With last year’s cancellation due to rain (go figure!), the Ott’s are still the defending champions. I have a feeling a Domine team is anxious to reclaim the trophy.

Dust off your recipe’s! We are bringing back the cookie/dessert competition this year, as well as the chili cook-off. We have some awesome bakers and cooks in this group, young and old, and it is refreshing to see old family recipes being passed down to the next generation. A reservation form will be available in the August newsletter and a Constant Contact invitation will go out in August also. Pricing is the same as last year, $10 for adults and kids 12 and over, $5 for children under 12.

A day filled with great food, great fun, and great friends. How could you go wrong with this combination? I look forward to seeing you there. CLICK HERE to register by mail and pay with a check or CLICK HERE to register and pay online.
