Labor Day hike around Lafayette Res. followed by potluck picnic.

This is a combined event with two meetup groups.  Hope to see you there.

It's going to be a beautiful and sunny Labor day.  A perfect day to be outdoors and enjoy Labor Day together.  Get a chance to mingle, get to know new friends, and spend some time with the ones you already know.

How about starting the day with getting some fresh air and exercise?  We'll meet below the Res. in front of Veterans Memorial and will walk up the hill.  It's only a ten minute walk  to the top but helps your body warm up and be ready to walk around the Res.  The Res. is approximately 2.7 miles of peaceful setting with gentle hills and valleys.  It'll take approx. 45-55 minutes once you're at the top.  The pace will be medium to fast.  If you're unable to walk fast, you're welcome to walk at your own pace and join the rest at the end.

Parking down below not only gives you a better work out, it also frees you of the hassle of looking for parking.  You're also welcome to meet us at the parking lot if you prefer.  If you do that, please wait at the bench next to the fish cleaning station and bathrooms and join the hike at 10:05.  Cost of parking all day is $6 and meters take $1.25 per hour.

We will start walking at 10:00 a.m., so please allow time to arrive a few minutes early.

Following the walk we'll have a potluck picnic with more activities and relaxing time.  We'll meet at 11:30 at a location that will be announced before the day.  Please bring something special to share, BYOB, blankets, chairs, sweaters, balls, Volleyball net, games etc.  There are also boat rentals available at the visitor center.  Those who don't wish to walk, can join us for the potluck at 11:30

If you're musically talented, please bring your instrument so we can enjoy your talent.  Or if you sing, this will be a true America Got Talent (NOT), and we really love to see and hear your talent.  Let's pretend we're at a campfire!!!! 

I'll provide some table cloths for the tables and will provide some paper supplies.  But please remember to bring some also. 

As much as we all love our pets, no pets please.

    Can I meet up for the potluck? I'm not sure I'm up for the hike.

      Yes Maria, please come for lunch.

    I suggest we each bring a lunch as well as something healthy to share with the rest of the group. The shared item could be some nuts, fresh or dried fruit fruit, or veggies. That way the number attending is not a problem.

      We're bringing lunch and having lunch together and hanging out at the Res. after the hike instead of the potluck. Feel free to join for lunch.

    I love the potluck part and will be there. I'll probably find you guys walking but go at a slower pace so don't wait for me to arrive. Meters may be fee because it's a holiday.
