August MacSTAC Picnic

MacSTAC'ers:

Our August meeting will take place NEXT Thursday, August 25th at the Quaker Lake Yacht Racing Club in Brackney PA.

Our plan is a cookout with hamburgers, hot dogs, cole slaw, potato salad, dessert and nonalcoholic beverages. You do not have to bring anything except yourself and a significant other if you wish. You may also invite guests.

What we need FROM YOU  is your R.S.V.P. that you are coming and how many people you are bringing. Please email me with this info BY SATURDAY THIS WEEK so we can plan how much food to buy. 

This weekend, I'll send out all the details.

Tentatively  we'll say that will begin at 5 PM with a brief Apple review and Q&A's and then cook and eat. All activities will be out of doors. By the weekend we should have a fairly good idea of the weather forecast, so if Thursday the 25th looks iffy, we might move the event back to Tuesday, August 23rd.

Directions:

Get to New York Route 17 (soon to be Interstate 86 ) west of Binghamton, NY.

Take exit 67S (Vestal exit). Take Route 26 south for 8.5 miles (at the Pennsylvania border, the road becomes Route 267).
