Picnic at Fern Ridge Reservoir - Richardson Park

I'm ready for one of these -- how about you? Join us for a leisurely day of picnicking, grilling, croquet, badminton (maybe), live music (with luck!), happy chatter and lots of laughs. Plan to bring a dish to share, meat to throw on the grill if you want (grill and charcoal provided), camp chairs, your favorite beverage (adult beverages are fine) and anything else you enjoy at a picnic. How to find us: Drive north on Hwy. 99 to the first light past Jerry's Home Improvement. Turn left (west) on Clear Lake Road. Stay on Clear Lake Road past Orchard Point and past the dam. Turn left (south) onto Richardson Park Road, toward the reservoir. Past the kiosk, turn RIGHT (WEST) at the stop sign. Stay on the road till you come to a large parking lot and you'll find us there! Hope to see you!! :)

    If anyone wants to come get my badminton game (with birdies) for the picnic let me know and I'll leave it on my front porch. I live near Terry and Barger.

    Sorry I cannot make it after all. I acquired a foster dog, a rescue from California, and she needs my TLC. Have fun!

    I'm sorry for not setting up a sign-up sheet for pot luck, but we always manage somehow! I'm bringing a rhubarb cream cake and I know Hugh and Terry are bringing cupcakes, so if that helps others to decide... feel free to post your contributions if you want to but no requirement to do so! I'll try to be better organized next time!! :)

    I'm bringing a blueberry corn salad. Sounds weird, but it's an amazing recipe for those with an adventuresome palate.

    Is anyone interested in another round of the Playing Gods game? We can bring the game if there will be picnic tables to play on. We've never been there so don't know what the layout is.

    I am bringing a salad. What kind depends on what looks best at the market.

  • Hugh C.

    We are bringing for gluten-free cupcakes. If we need more gluten-free please let me know. Thank you. Hugh Cochran

    I'm bringing THREE others: Dennis, and two neighbors who are not CFI members but whom I think you'll all enjoy. Plus, I'm bringing a cooler with ice and some potato salad to share. Looking forward to seeing y'all!

    I have badminton birdies now. I'll bring my game! Those who live near me wanting a ride - I have room for 3 in addition to me.
