Description:

Join the SHPE SF Bay Area Professional chapter as we close the year with a summer picnic and a hike! We have the Anna Costa picnic spot reserved in Roberts Regional Recreation Area. Come enjoy the sunny Oakland weather and meet the new board! We'll also have other fun activities like frisbee and soccer to name a few!

The picnic will be potluck style - SHPE SFBA will be providing cutlery, napkins, plates, and water. We highly encourage you to bring a side, dessert, or snacks to share with the group! Let us know what you'll be bringing here and whether you can provide a ride or need a ride: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1BbC-sPXc_e0ffJ_wciPv7knQ24kWOeX4q7fF9rOeiN4/edit?usp=sharing
