WPLUG's 10th annual Open Source Picnic will be held at Snyder Park tentatively set from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Sunday, August 21,2011. The reason why we call it "Open Source" is because everyone who attends is to contribute by bringing food, helping out, or organizing activities. It will be as good as the community makes it! Plan to bring the whole family!

There are many ways to participate. Sign up under one of the categories below. If an item is unclaimed, go ahead and take it! If you think of an item that isn't listed, add it.

Be sure to RSVP below for yourself and your guests if you are coming. You need to do this even if you've signed up as bringing something.



Individuals wishing to help with setup can assist in hanging the signs, setting up picnic tables, and general preparations. Please show up at 12:30.
