Summer Picnic

Chapter Picnic at Schrants' Horse Farm 

Our Dank Fox Valley picnic 2005 was held on June 11, again at the beautiful Schrant farm. Some board members arrived early to set up our tent and organize the ample quantities of refreshments and food. The Wurst Kitchen supplied about 70 various brats and hot dogs, along with a huge bowl of chicken salad and ten pounds of potato salad. Virtually all this food was consumed by about 30 adults and ten children in a matter of hours!
The weather cooperated for most of the day, allowing everyone to join in playing volleyball, jumping on a trampoline, riding on a 4-wheeler or motorized scooter, or just watching the horses and enjoying each other's company. We had a bit of unusual excitement as a squall came through, lasting about 20 minutes. The wind was strong enough to have many people holding down the tent. Our host, Helmut, prepared as ever, quickly brought out some strong tie-downs to stabalise the tent. Several people, including myself, were drenched, but the storm was over as quickly as it started and the sun and gentle breeze allowed everything to dry within a few minutes.
It was well into the night before the last of us went home. Thank you again, Helmut and Margaret!
