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.

We will need prepared foods, snacks, deserts, non-alcoholic beverages, grilling meat and veggie patties, and condiments. Please note there will not be electricity at the picnic grounds.

Sign-up here with the name of your dish and your name:

  • Judi -- wplug is giving us $50.00 for food. I will buy meat to grill and maybe side dishes, depending on how many people will be here. I do think people should volunteer to bring condiments, drinks and maybe fruit and/or dessert. By Thursday we should know how many people are coming. .

What I am buying so far: 85/15 ground beef, 1/3 lb hot sausage, 1/3 lb. sweet sausage, 1 package beef wieners, rolls/buns, 30 or so spicy, Chinese chicken dumplings, cheese, 1/2 dozen corn on the cob for grilling, veggies, lettuce, cole slaw/pepper slaw (sweet peppers). (I'll put this together myself.) I'll know how much this will cost later. Peppers and cherry tomatoes for the veggie tray. Someone else bring other veggies if you want, someone else bring dip.
