It was suggested that on one Wednesday during the summer months (June-July-August) the club should have a potluck picnic after the Etra rides, but seeing that Juneteenth is a Wednesday All-Paces, let‘s kick it off there - at Mercer County Park. Lots of picnic benches available there and Pat Butcher has a few games to bring (table & field games, corn hole being one of them). Others can bring their favorite picnic games too! And bring a favorite dish to share with the group.
