It's September, and it's our first social event - it's the Start-of-Term Feast! Okay, it's really a picnic in the park, but it's a great way to get this group started! I've reserved the 14th Ave. East Meadow picnic site at Golden Gate Park. It's a great spot that is shady, has two picnic tables, restrooms, and we have it all to ourselves! Mwahahaha.
Please feel free to bring snacks or food (preferably Harry-Potter-themed of course). You can list in the comments what you are planning to bring so that we don't end up with 5 different versions of butterbeer cupcakes. (Who am I kidding?! That would be awesome!) This site allows adult beverages, so beer as well as butter beer is welcome.
Feel free to dress up! (I will instantly love you.) Invite your friends. If someone wants to bring a little portable grill, that would be awesome. Since I live off of Mission St., I've decided that this would be a good time to finally purchase a piñata.
And of course, what would be a Start-of-Term Feast without a sorting! One idea that was suggested was to divide members into houses and award points for different activites (10 points for attending volunteer events, 5 for social, 1 for RSVPing, etc.).
Not only will this be a great time to get to know each other but a great time to discuss some ideas for the group. Also I would love to talk to people who expressed interest in becoming more involved with the group, future activities, etc, but mostly I want to get to know all of you and geek out on Harry Potter!

I will also give out my phone number to all those who RSVP in case you have trouble finding us.
I hope to see you all there!
