Write Up:
Wow, I can't remember the last time I had this much fun at a picnic. MOCers began to trickle in at 12:00. Our top chef Chris Bowers grilled up some delicious hot dogs, burgers and sausages around noon. After lunch, we held a number of wacky field day events. Many of the participants experienced the thrill of victory while others encountered the agony of defeat. What ever the outcome, each of the participants gave their all in true MOC fashion. A brief ceremony was held where field event winners received awards. Next, most of the picnic goers headed over to the field for a pick-up kickball game. It was a friendly game with a lot of laughter.

Event Winners included

Day Barth- Basketball Free Throws
Kim Hirose -Loop Hoop Marathon
Damien Nickle -Dart Toss

All in all, great food, great people, and GREAT WEATHER! Thank you everyone who volunteered to help out . Especially Chris Bowers - our grill master, Glen Peddicord- athletic equipment, Kevin Yue &, Nils Olson - Sign-in, and Sandra Stabler- field day event promotional assistant!
