Hey everybody, we haven't had any RSVPs yet for our picnic Saturday, but I'm sure at least a few of you are also coming who just haven't RSVPed. If you're coming, it'd be great if you could RSVP at this link: . It's no big deal if you don't, but I did just want to make sure everyone had the latest info on it, which is below:

If you missed the message the first time, we're having our April potluck gathering as a picnic at Palmetto State Park, south of Luling, this Saturday, April 10, at 12 noon. We had so much fun last year that we're going back to do it again!

IMPORTANT: It's about an hour's drive, so we highly recommend that people coordinate on doing carpooling to get there and back. To help with that, I have activated the message boards and mailing list for our meetup group- my original plan when we started the group was that we were going to implement a system on our own website, but that just hasn't happened yet, so no sense in keeping it from working here.

Anyway, I can tell you I have room for a couple of people in our car, and we'll be leaving Saturday morning at 11 from South Austin. If you're interested, email me back: [address removed] . If anyone else is willing to share their ride, PLEASE speak up and offer a ride! And if you want to come but need a ride, PLEASE let us know, we want to get as many people as want to come.

To post such a message on the boards, use this link: . And if you want to use the mailing list to send the whole group a message, just reply to this email!

Please bring a VEGAN dish to feed eight plus serving utensils, as well as your own plate, utensils and beverage. After the picnic, we'll be having a Board of Directors brainstorming session that we encourage everyone to participate in. And there's plenty of outdoors activities at Palmetto, including hiking trails and paddleboating. Some of us are probably going to stay the night and camp-out as well. The park admission is $3 per per person.

We'll be meeting at the picnic area at the end of State Park Road, which you find by (first) checking in and paying your fee at the park entrance office just past FM 1586. Then continue across the two bridges over the lake and river, then left onto State Park Road. If you reach FM 250, you've gone too far. Here's a link that shows you exactly where we're meeting:,-97.5839
