SJCARS Orcas Picnic
Friday, May 11, 2018
About 10 am to ?

Dear SCJARS members and Friends,

Our next regularly scheduled monthly meeting will be our Orcas Island Picnic on Friday May 11, 2018, at Cascade Lake at Moran State Park, Orcas Island. We have the shelter reserved, so it will be nice rain or shine. We’ll begin as soon as folks arrive off the inter-island ferry. Moran State Park is about 30 minutes from the ferry, so plan accordingly. It’s best to coordinate rides in advance.
Click here for a map from the ferry.

Check the ferry schedules. If you are coming from:
>> Lopez, catch the 9:55 am interisland, arrives Orcas at 10:35 am
>> Shaw, catch the 10:15 interisland, arrives Orcas at 10:35 am
>> San Juan Island, catch the 8:30 am interisland, arrives Orcas at 9:15 am
>> Anacortes, take either the 7:30 am, arrives at 8:20 am, or the 10:35 am, arrives at 11:45 am.
Again, it’s a 30 minute drive to Moran State Park.
Always check ferry schedules!

A Washington State Park Discover Pass is required if you are bringing a vehicle. Day use only is available at the park.

This is a potluck, with a bring-your-own-meat-to-grill option, overseen by Chef Jim K2SON. So bring something to share, a side or munchies or dessert, and bring your own plates and utensils and beverage.

We will have a very short regular club meeting with topics including Field Day updates from the individual island organizers, meeting minute approval, treasury report, committee reports, and time permitting, “Stories from Your Shack.”

Again, bring food to share, meat to grill if you would like, and your own utensils and beverage. Monitor Cady Mountain Repeater 146.700, Dup-, Tone 131.8 or monitor the 224.48 repeater on Mount Constitution if you have 220 capability.
