August 2018 Picnic

Our meeting this month is the August 2018 Picnic.  Please join the Finger Lakes Section for our Annual Member Family Picnic on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, 2:00PM at the Cheerful Valley Campground in Phelps, NY.

Our hosts, Craig and Linda Hutchings have once again offered their hospitality by reserving the pavilion for us.

Please bring a dish to pass, place settings and drinks. The meat will be provided.
Send your response to Linda,, so we know if you’re coming and what dish you’re bringing.

The traditional horseshoe tournament will start as soon as we have enough people gathered.

BRING: bathing suits if you’d like to use the pool, fishing gear if you want to try your luck in the stream and any fun outdoor toys or games you’d like to share.
Be aware that we will take a Group Portrait after dinner so don’t leave before that happens.


The Workshop website has been updated with Instructors for 2019! If you can’t decide which class to take, you can now register online and choose later. Get your deposit in to hold a place for next year. You don’t want to miss it!
