BAKA June 2013 BBQ Meeting
Posted by ryangrisso on 2013/4/29 19:57:12 (519 reads)

When: Saturday, June 15, 2011. Starts at 3 PM. Auction at 6:00pm. Anyone and everyone is welcome.

Where:
Bill and Cathy's home
161 Bayview Drive
San Rafael, CA

The house is actually right at the split in the road, not before it. Please look for the gate at the split.

Bill said "My gate will be marked with a balloon or sign. The gate will be closed, but use the intercom at the gate for entrance. We have a new parking system that works pretty well when many cars come. Please tell everybody who is offloading food, drinks, fish, etc. to drive to the end of my driveway and offload - we might then direct them to re-park lower during the meeting. If we can keep the turnaround at the top relatively clear, this works well."


Activities:
This is an informal afternoon social and families are encouraged. We will barbecue and talk killifish. There is a pool if you want to take a dip. The bird-watching and views are also incredible.

There will be some basics for the BBQ such as chicken, sausages & soft drinks. If you can bring additional foods like salad, chips & drinks, it would be great. Please RSVP by email to info@sfbaka.net regarding the BBQ.

Also, the Marin Art Festival is held the same day as the June BAKA meeting in San Rafael, only fifteen minutes away at the Lagoon at the Marin Civic Center. Highly recommended if you are traveling all the way to San Rafael, looking for something to do with the spouse and kids, prior to our meeting. It opens at 10AM, there is an admission charge, details and directions at http://marinartfestival.com Music, art, food, it's wonderful. (And if you go, may I suggest you take the curvy scenic route to 161 Bayview Drive starting with a LEFT turn on San Pedro Rd as you leave the Arts Festival and take the five-minute longer drive along the edge of San Pablo Bay through China Camp State Park, then turn RIGHT onto Bayview Drive.)
