August 2016 TRASH Meeting - Summer Picnic & Swap Meet!

Saturday, August 13th, 2016 at 2pm

Location: Moon Shelter, Old Ingomar Rd., North Park, Allegheny County, PA

This event is in the past.

The club's 2016 Summer Picnic will be held at the Moon shelter on Old Ingomar Rd. in North Park on Saturday, August 13th at 2:00.  This is a family friendly event.  We'll have a brief meeting to go over general annoucements, but this is mainly a chance to get together, share some beer and food, and have a good time.  And have a homebrew gear swap meet!

The picnic is open to everyone - members and guests alike.

A map of the park shelters can be found at the link below. 
 Moon is shelter #77 on the map, in section G-4.

Food
All food will be done pot-luck style. (Last year the club provided hamburgers & hot dogs but the pot-luck was such a success, they went to waste!  Let's have another awesome pot-luck this year!) Go here to sign up for the potluck and let us know what you're  bringing!

Drink
We're a homebrew club, so bring homebrew!  Glass containers are prohibited in all county parks, so bring your beer in kegs, stainless growlers, or plastic bottles.  One and two liter soda bottles work great as disposable growlers to fill from your kegs, and 20 ounce soda bottles work well for bottle-conditioning beer.  The club will provide some non alcoholic drinks - soda & bottled water.

Swap Meet
Something new this year - we're going to hold a homebrew swap meet / yard sale / flea market / what-have-you at the picnic.  If you have homebrew gear you're looking to sell or trade, bring it!  If you're looking to buy anything, bring cash!  Table space will be short in the pavilion, so if you're setting up to sell stuff bring a folding table for it if you can.  You can post what you're bringing for the swap meet here.

TRASHY Award
The kegged homebrew voted by popular opnion to be the best one gets the coveted TRASHY Award!  The award had gone missing for a couple years but it has been recovered and will be back this year ready to go home with the winner.

Games
If you have picnic / cookout games, bring them!  Cornhole, horseshoes, frisbee, hackey sack, wiffleball, whatever.  Anyone have a set of Jarts?  Keg toss!

See you there!
