June 2014 Picnic
With new SDWA board members and many new members it was a different concept this year than in the years past. A suggestion to have a “Chili Cook off” created by Mike & Dawn turned out to be a great success.
The food was plenty, with 4 entries for the Chili contest. Winner was: “Dawn Patrol” although, Mike’s “El Miguel” hot chili was a close second place. There was not a drop left of any chili by 2pm. We had plenty of Chicken legs from Aliza and David’s recipe, salads, and last deserts. A special Thank you to Mike & Dawn for remembering Amy’s Birthday with a chocolate mousse cake, wow, was that Tasty!
The wind was very light, challenging our light wind sailing skills, but the big sails did get some good speed in the downwind runs.
The turn out very one of the best for a June picnic. Mostly due to the great weather we had. There was no June gloom, and temps were averaging 70 degrees. Total turn out was 55 members and 4 guests. We were able to teach two new members, and help one new member rig her new gear.
I do not know how were will ever beat this successful June Picnic; we can only try and be even better next time.
