Details about the Picnic/Auction:
Successful auctions in past years have greatly contributed to the financial stability of our club. Once again,
we are asking you to please bring with you to the picnic, fossils or fossil related items, which will be auctioned off for
the benefit of our club.
The club will provide the hamburgers (aka Brontosaurus Burgers), bratwursts (aka Brachio Brats), hot
dogs (aka Dino Dogs), buns, plates, eating utensils, cups, napkins, condiments and ice. The amount
of food provided by the club is based upon a sign-up sheet that will was filled in by members. If you are planning to
attend the picnic and you did not sign your name to the list of members who were planning to attend, please send an
email to Beth Krumhansl indicating how many in your party will attend. Beth's email address is email@example.com
Your email will greatly help Beth in determining how much food to purchase for the picnic.
Members attending are asked to bring a side dish, and/or dessert, plus their own beverages. No alcoholic
beverages are permitted in this location .
Also, don't forget to bring a sufficient amount of money to guarantee your successful participation in the auction!
