DVM FREE BBQ, OMG!
Saturday, August 10, 2019, 11:00 AM (rain or shine)
Ridley Creek State Park
Summer. Baseball. Heat and humidity. Kids at home. Casual Friday morphs into put-in-half-a-day Friday. But perhaps the best summer tradition of them all is the Delaware Valley Mensa annual BBQ. The BBQ is always one of the best-attended events on our calendar, and is a terrific chance to catch up with (or meet) fellow Mensans.
This year, we will again convene at Pavilion 14 of Ridley Creek State Park, just off the I-476 in Delaware County PA. The tables under the pavilion are stacked with hot dogs, burgers, and sides provided by DVM. Some members also bring a side or dessert to share. There is table space for games brought by members who know that like-minded Mensans would love to plot strategy on a Saturday afternoon. Sometimes the food and games compete for space on the picnic tables, but a compromise is reached fairly quickly!
If weather permits, the grassy areas in front of the parking area are perfect for kicking a ball or tossing a frisbee. And the wooded areas behind us have well-marked hiking trails for those who like nature, want exercise, or just want a chance to get away from it all with a friend or two. Of course, this is the 21st century, and cell phone signals do reach the park. Each picnic area is equipped with rest rooms and grills.
Hope to see you there!
