Write Up:
I would like to thank everybody who came out. We all had a great time. It's impossible to have asked for more perfect weather- in the mid-80s and mostly sunny. Luckily, there were few bugs, even though we camped near a lake. After introductions, everybody unpacked and went exploring. Pam hurled her pillow at me because I was sarcastic about Ruth and her showing up late. Sergei brought an inflatable kayak enjoyed by Beth, Sabrina, Pam, Ruth, and him. Rob brought his solo kayak. Everybody enjoyed the water. Adam, Brian, Chris, Amy, Mannix, and Cheryl went for a walk around the lake. Brian saw a huge frog and asked Amy if it was real. She freaked out; it was very funny. As the sun was setting, we started cooking on the grill and built a fire. Nothing is more exciting that starting a fire. Mannix was very excited about his first event with the club and he enjoys cooking so much that he brought his apron with him. We had some interesting macabre conversations and Mannix tried to change the subject several times, but he was ignored. On Sunday morning, we chilled out and packed up the mess from the previous night. It was a fun time.
