Welcome Picnic will begin approximately 6:00 around the Spinnaker Cove beach and marina. The primary purpose of the picnic is to serve as an icebreaker. It gives the Marines a chance to relax and meet us. Hosts, Activity Chairs, and spouses are invited. Each couple is asked to bring a dish (coordinated by the Sheppards and Wanthals). Parking is limited. It is reasonable to park along one side of the entrance road to Spinnaker Cove. Also, the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot is reasonably convenient. We will provide golf carts to assist with transporting people from the entrance to Spinnaker Cove and Wells Fargo parking lot down the hill to the Spinnaker Cove Marina. We encourage hosts to travel to Spinnaker by boat and take their guests on an evening ride on the lake after the picnic - that has been a big hit in the past. Picnic will last as long as there is food and interest.
