What is the approach for our quarterly social?

1. We will continue to rotate across the Bay and surrounding areas quarterly per membership residence demographics.
a. South Bay including Gilroy areas.
b. North Bay, Peninsula, Pittsburg, Vacaville, etc.
c. East Bay, Tri valley areas up to Mountain house, Tracy.
2. Spring (weather permitting) and summer events will be held in reserved county park picnic areas while winter events will be indoors.
3. We will alternate seasonal locations per region on a yearly basis.
4. With an expanding organization, it is no longer feasible to expect members to host comfortably in their backyard and with current and future inflation host at county park or indoor centers solely without $ support.
5. We will transition away from member hosting but rather have members in the planned region for potluck nominate their local park or community center via lottery/vote and if cost is feasible, it will be selected. This way interested members are involved in decision making.
6. Contribution for food/supplies remains the same and a joint effort by all attendees.
7. Can I invite guests? – yes, you may! Adult guests are required to contribute (albeit different $) as members do to the potluck event or you may contribute on their behalf.
8. Any additional ad hoc event related activities will be at a shared community cost unless otherwise noted i.e., donations or sponsorships.
