CVGS Annual Summer Picnic Highlights

We tried something different this year for the CVGS Annual Summer Picnic - we held it at the Bonita-Sunnyside Library and had the program indoors in the Community Room on Monday, 15 August.

 The event started at 11 a.m., and the 13 attendees had their bring-your-own lunch in the shade on the patio adjoining the Community Room. We shared research and vacation stories.

 We moved into the Community Room at around noon, and President Gary Brock showed some videos of Scottish Highland Games.
Rather than physical Scottish games, Gary used the "Let's Make a Deal" type of game board (which he made last year for the picnic) and we spun the dial to get as high a number as possible for four different Scottish "games." The highest number was 16, and the spinner could choose to "hold" at any time. The spinner had to take the result on the third spin of each turn. Linda Seaver won the game in a spin-off with Mary Lou Montez. It was great fun to see the strategy of the players.

A fun time was had by all!
