BRING YOUR OWN FOOD & DRINK IN PORTIONS TO SHARE
We're sorry to disappoint those who expected a softball game this year but logistics became too difficult so we decided to "go with what we know". By viewing the above pictures you can see we had a great venue last year at Britzer Garten and a wonderful time despite light rain. We'd still like to play a game of softball against AVA but will postpone it (spring voter registration?) until some players can work with us to get the needed equipment.
Come and join us this year for a potluck picnic where you bring your own food and drink with plenty to share with others. And this year John Shreve has offered to bring along his guitar and give us a little preview of his upcoming Woody Guthrie concert. (http://www.john-shreve.de / see live dates) If we're lucky some of his or our old friends will come along like Kat Baloun, Ron Gorlick or Alex returned from the missing.
Britzer Garden is one of Berlin's most beautiful parks with special opportunities for the little ones like a zoo, a water playground amidst several others and the Dinky Train Railroad. Our lakeside venue offers plenty of room for fun and games like volleyball, frisbees, badminton or circle games (remember Dodge ball?). Our chair gets thousands together to fly kites there every year so imagine how easy it is to spread out or get close together under his big tent if need be. Though grilling is strictly forbidden, a nearby local vendor offers hamburgers for those in need.
Finally, if it looks like that weekend will be rather cold and rainy by the forecasts Aug. 31st, we have several indoor private locations to duck into. Just watch our website and we'll also let you know who's taking us in and exactly where. Please plan to be with us come rain or shine!
