2021 Appalachian New Member Picnic

Picnic @ Long Meadow Park in The Ramble in Asheville

This is the seventh year for this event to welcome new members and socialize with old friends. It’s a pot luck event with everyone contributing an appetizer, side dish or dessert. The region provides the main dish, Broasted Chicken from Little Pigs BBQ in Asheville.

Long Meadow Park Pavilion in The Ramble has permanent restrooms, and we have permission to park cars on the lawn behind the facility in a concours-like setting. No judging of cars or prizes, just a nice setting to observe and enjoy.

Identify your pot luck item at registration, and BYOB, whether it is water, soda, beer, etc. The picnic goes from 4:00 p.m. 7:00 p.m. No charge this year as our club is covering the table, chair and pavilion rental.

Please register by end of day, Tuesday, June 15. Get this on your calendar today!

The Pot-Luck items are listed on the registration form. If not listed, we have met our needs for that item. The items needed are:

  • (15) Appetizer
  • (20) Dessert
  • (5) Bread, e.g. baked bread, dinner rolls, etc.
  • (5) set of Plates, Napkins, Utensils (minimally, 50 of each item, please)
  • (5) Bag of ice (in cooler)
  • (25) Side Dish e.g. baked beans, salad, cold slaw, pasta salad, etc.
