Join us for a picnic and day of fun on Angel Island. We'll be at the Platform group site across Ayala Cove from where the Ferry lets off between 10:30 and 4. In addition to the picnic, there'll be hikes and a bike ride offered. Team sports lovers are encouraged to bring equipment for volleyball, football, Frisbee. Those who are less energetic might prefer a game of bocce ball, a tram ride around the Island, or a day of hanging out and socializing.
