North Puget Sound NWA Pilot’s 2019 Picnic

Friends and colleagues, we return to Shelter Bay (LaConner, WA) at 1330 on Thursday, July 25, 2019 for our annual picnic. (note the earlier time)

 Herr Dassel informs us that we are returning to the tradition menu. He willnorth Sound1 tap his elite seafood sources for local salmon, Skagit county pork, and you will provide the salads, favorite picnic dishes, and desserts. That insures the reappearance of Skip Eglet’s famous pea Salad and Ginny chocolate cake.

north Sound1Upon entering Shelter Bay look for a left turn onto Swinomish Drive. Keep an eye out for the swimming pool and dock facility. It helps us avoid 30 varieties of potato salad if you RSVP. There is no fixed price, we simply split the expenses. It is a bargain deal.

Let me know if I can be of assistance.
