Annual Picnic at Lake Ahquabi

IAF has reserved the beach shelter at Lake Ahquabi for a Memorial Day picnic. (Look for the red balloons by the shelter - the beach parking lot and restrooms are adjacent.) We have met out there for a few years now and have always had a great time. This is a family-and-friend-welcome event - please feel free to bring guests of any age.

Please bring something to grill, drinks, and a dish to share as well as games or activities. The beach will be open for swimming and the boat rental facilities will be open all day. IAF will provide plates, cups, napkins and utensils. We will need a few additional grills, if people are able to bring them.

For more information about the lake please check this link: http://www.iowadnr.gov/parks/state_park_list/lake_ahquabi.html It's a great facility and there's plenty to do there!

Look forward to seeing you!

    Just returned from the picnic. Some 27-28 were there so with all the weather the turn out was good. Some new folks and many "regulars". Weather actually ok--overcast but that keep cool and not humid--clouds left by mid afternoon. Nice relaxing time--hope we can do this type of thing again.

    You do now Lydia. Just give me the word. And I'll throw this offer open to anyone who needs a ride. My car can hold five.

      I'm heading out for the picnic now. This is my chance to view the website, so I'm afraid the offer of a ride for anyone who needs one is closing. Hope to see you all there. -CW

    I thought I was going to be able to make this but it turns out that my schedule wont allow for it. Maybe next year...

    If we have clear skies I'm bringing my telescope so we can look at some sunspots!

      I also have a sun-scope. Haven't had it out in a few years. I'll bring it to set up along side yours.

    Taking a grill, a couple lawn chairs, 3 kayaks (and life jackets) unless it's pouring rain, then the kayaks stay home but we'll still be there.
