    The date and location of the Chickenstock has been chosen! We'll be doing a potluck style lunch like last year's event.

    The Chickenstock will be on Saturday, November 5th. (Yes, that's this Saturday! [​IMG])

    I will be at the site setting up at 9 AM, any of you who want to show up early to help set up will be greatly appreciated.

    Here's an "agenda" for the day... we don't have to strictly follow this, just something to keep us all on track.

    (9:00am setup)

    10:00am Arrival, Sign in, Drop Off Donations

    11:30-1:30pm Lunch
    Planned Activity during lunch

    1:45pm Appreciations for donations, planning, food, and others./Group photo with BYC Banner

    2:30pm Donations raffle.

    3:00pm Games and socializing.

    4:30pm Goodbyes and Clean up

    Out by 5:00pm

    We're having this year's event at the Oakland Zoo, they offer spacious outdoor picnic areas that will be able to accommodate the large number of folks we're expecting.

    We'll be having our event at the 'Lion Lookout' location.

    The site is outfitted with lots of picnic tables.

    Also! We now have Google spreadsheets set up for you to enter what you'll be bringing to the Chickenstock to eat- we'll be doing this year's event potluck style so please plan on bringing enough food items to serve at least 8-10 people.

    This is the link to the food spreadsheet.

    cherylcohen will be handling donations for this year's event, she also created a spreadsheet for folks to enter items that they want to bring to be raffled off as prized at this year's event. Great idea Cheryl!

    This is the link to the donations spreadsheet.

    Make sure to save both of those links as they are updated each time someone else adds what they will be bringing.

    Stay tuned for more updates! [​IMG]

    Great idea, Jeremy !!! Place seems to be easy to get to, and lots of room to play for those who would be hesistant to bring their younger family members sometimes. [​IMG]

    I agree that you should have a choice of dates to be considered soon ..

    I've also emailed you separately.

    Thanks! [​IMG]
