SPRING PICNIC in the park

Spring Picnic in the park in celebration of 1st day of Spring! :)

There is a wonderfully peaceful field behind all the baseball fields at Nozomi Park in Chandler (202 and Kyrene)- perfect for a spring picnic!

I was thinking of setting up a large group canopy for shade and buffet tables for the POT LUCK dishes... The field is very private, has its own gazebo with picnic tables, restrooms...

Also, I'm going to set up a badminton net to maybe have some friendly badminton games... :)

FAMILY PICNIC for both adults and children. 

***SEEKING volunteers to bring paper plates/cups/cutlery/napkins, any family activity games, horseshoes, bring your own badminton racquets, footballs, etc.

POT LUCK format - PLS BRING 2-3 extra folding picnic tables if available..

SUGGESTION: BRING a picnic blanket to sit on OR folding/camping chairs.

NO official alcohol permit- so any alcohol consumed is strictly an individual responsibility- pls be aware of this. thanks!

    Jas if you can bring cups too that would be great as I don't think I got enough. I guess folks will be drinking out of soda cans and bottles too. Thx
