Annual club picnic including SMaSH It! competition.
Our Annual Picnic will be on Saturday, May 25 from 11 AM to 5 PM at Hellman Hollow Picnic Area, Tables 19 & 20, and it looks to be a busy day!!

This event is open to all SFHG members and their family. We will have grills going with some hot dogs and will provide plates, silverware, napkins, basic condiments, etc. You should bring your best homebrew (growler or bottles only), along with something to grill and/or share as a side.

Expect a fun day lounging in the (hopefully sunny) park, eating tasty BBQ and drinking delicious homebrew. Along with the general lounging we will be holding our Calm and SMaSH It! competition

SMASH It - Single Malt Single Hop - use a single type of malt and a single type of hop in your brew - you can use them at different stages, i.e. you can use the hop for kettle additions as well as dry hopping - no other ingredients besides water, mineral additions, bacteria and/or yeast

Judging is a peoples choice so bring plenty of beer in growlers or bottles. If you can't make it but still want to compete ask a fellow member to bring your entry.

This is promising to be a busy and fun day, and I am looking forward to seeing a lot of you on the 25th!

Finally a couple of reminders:
NO KEGS are allowed in the park so be sure to bring your homebrew in growlers or bottles only.
John F Kennedy Drive will be closed to cars east of Transverse Ave on the day of the event. JFK is open to cars and parking in front of Hellman Hollow, but be sure to find an alternate route if driving.
