Our “Umpteenth” annual picnic is always one of our most anticipated events, and with good reason: Every year we supply an extraordinary beer selection backed up by a seemingly endless feast of ribs, chili, salsa, and desserts that are whipped up by our amazing members who enter into hotly contested competitions.

The 2019 picnic will be September 7, 2019 in the same *old* place on the Northside with a slight change which will be communicated in our ticket invite. TICKETS ARE FREE AND REQUIRED. Anyone without a ticket will be turned away.

A flyer will be emailed to members of record in mid August with a unique code to obtain tickets.
