A SMaNK and SWaNK Combo Potluck Picnic in the Park

How exciting!

This is our very first Meetup that combines both our SWaNK group (the ladies) and our SMaNK group (the gentlemen) together. Come on out to enjoy some time relaxing in the beautiful setting of Golden Gate Park in the company of other child-free, unmarried humans (Oh, heck, bring your dogs too if you like, especially if they are SCaNKs "Single Canines and No Kids"). Hopefully there will be lots of food and drink to enjoy amongst us. Please bring something to contribute to the SWaNK/SMaNK meal.

When: Sunday, May 25 from 2pm - 6pm
Rain date: Sunday, June 1

Where: Golden Gate Park in Speedway Meadow (a.k.a. Hellman Hollow)
(See map link here: http://goldengateparkbikeandskate.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/golden-gate-park-map.pdf)
It's approx. mid-way through the park at 25th St.

We will be set up somewhere in the meadow, likely close to the restrooms, but not THAT close to them. Perhaps 300 ft. or so away. There always seems to be plenty of parking in this area along John F. Kennedy Drive just above the meadow.

What to bring:

- Food for the barbecue or pre-cooked/prepared food
- Drinks - BYOB if you like (coolers if you have them would also be helpful)
- Beach chairs, blankets, pillows - whatever makes you comfortable
- Frisbees, footballs, etc.
- Your SWaNKy and SMaNKy selves
- Your partners, if you are in a relationship. They are welcome to join us for the fun at this particular event.
- Your SCaNK, if you like

Please RSVP so we have an idea of how many people to expect. Also, please indicate, in the discussion thread below, what you are bringing as a contribution to the potluck, so we don't double up on too many things. I will bring the plates, napkins, BBQ, utensils, and canopy. Oh yes, and the photo signs for anyone else wishing to join the SWaNK/SMaNK Hall of Fame.

Look for the white canopy with the SWaNK Meetup sign attached to it.

Hope to see you there for our first SWaNK and SMaNK combo Meetup!

      Hi Mark, So sorry that you missed us too! It's likely that you didn't receive my phone number either since you had just joined right before the picnic. I hope that it didn't inconvenience you too much and that you weren't too frustrated. I'm going to post my contact number to the group more clearly next time. Please accept my apologies. Hope to see you soon at another event. - Carolyn

      Darn, so sorry that you couldn't find us Matt. I was hoping you would call if lost, but I'm not sure if the entire group gets the messages or not or received my phone number. I hope it didn't inconvenience you too much. We were the only white tent in the meadow. Hope to see you next time and again my apologizes for not making my phone number more obvious. Here it is for next time (415) 450-1307. Hope to see you soon. - Carolyn
