It's that time of year again! WPLUG's 15th annual Open Source Picnic will take place in North Park on August 20, 2016 from 1:00-6:00 p.m. In the spirit of open source collaboration, we invite everyone to help make our picnic a success by bringing food, inviting people, and organizing activities for the day. Bring your friends! Invite the whole family!

(That's our only rule for the day, incidentally: everything must be family-friendly. No booze; nothing scandalous.)

The more people participate, the more successful we'll be. If you'd like to pitch in, add your name to one of the lists below. Be sure to RSVP for your entire party (including guests) by e-mailing You need to do this even if you've signed up below.


Hanging signs, setting up pic-a-nic tables, and chasing away pesky critters. Please show up at 12:30.



Try to be considerate of people with food allergies (listed below). If you pack something that somebody can't eat, tossing in something extra for them would be very nice!

Food Allergies

If you're planning to attend, please list your food allergies here and rate them according to severity:

  • Mild (minor effects; may be okay in small quantities)
  • Moderate (noticeable effects)
  • Severe (life-threatening).

We cannot guarantee that people bringing food will accommodate your dietary restrictions. If it looks like your choices will be limited, pack something for yourself - or better yet, bring enough for everyone so we can try something new!
