When: Sunday, October 18, 2009 - 1:00 PM
Hare(s): Little Johnson

whipping up a BBQ with fixins.

Help us celebrate finally being rid of Oral Roberts!

[No more 14 mile death marches; no more pediatric gynecologist jokes.]

Driving Directions:

If you're on the West side of the hills, make your way to 24 East. Go
through the tunnel and take the Orinda/Moraga exit. Turn left (north) on
Camino Pablo Road and go 2+ miles till you hit Bear Creek Road (it has a
stoplight). Take a right on Bear Creek Road and go for 4+ miles till you
see signs for the Bear Creek Staging Area on your right. (It's about a half
mile past the intersection with Happy Valley Road.)

Look for hashers; we'll be at one of the many picnic areas.

If you're a cheapass (like Princess or Oral) you can park alongside Bear
Creek Road near the entrance to the park and walk in. Otherwise there's a
$3 charge per car and $2 charge per dog.

Cost is $5 to hash (yes this applies to everyone, even if you are called Princess). If we get our act together (and the weather cooperates)
we'll also cook up something for an additional modest fee.

There'll be a walkers trail and a beer check

No PO but (maybe) a few star thistles.
