This is the third and last of three summer picnics for all of us atheists and humanists (sponsored by Minnesota Atheists). There's a great playground for kids, a basketball hoop, fields for badminton, ultimate frisbee, soccer, bocce ball and other games, and a picnic area for dining, board games, and lots of conversation! Over 60 people came out for each of the first two picnics, and we're planning to build on that!
The picnic is a potluck. Please bring some edibles to share. The shelter has electricity and a sink.
Families: in your RSVP, please mention the ages and genders of your children
Athletes (all levels): please tell us what sport you prefer so we can get a game going (at the last two we had Badminton, Bocce Ball, Ultimate Frisbee, Basketball, and more)
Board gamers: please let us know what games you enjoy and any you can bring
Musicians: please mention which musical instrument you plan to bring for an impromptu jam (the one at the first picnic was a great success)
