Photos – July club picnic at Locarno

Twenty plus club members gathered at Locarno Beach for a summer picnic. As the evening progressed we had visits at our tent from potential members, games of Cornhole, and a demo of how to paddleboard with a dog. Thanks to everyone who helped make our first in-person social event of 2021 a success! Credit to Sue Johnson and Quirine Schuyff for the photos.
