Annual POG “Brats & Parts” Picnic
at Bjorn & Barbara Stalesen’s
Sunday, October 10, 2021  12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

 
The Potomac 356 Owners Group annual picnic will be held at Bjorn & Barbara Stalesen’s farm.  It will be held on Sunday, October 10th, 2021, starting at 12:00 noon.
 
Since COVID19 is still a threatening presence, we will continue the small changes to our picnic format that we followed last year.  Among these is the encouragement in the use of face coverings and the practice of social distancing.
 
So plan to join your 356 friends to enjoy a socially distanced picnic.  There’s plenty of room to spread out on the farm.  Load up your 356 with your face masks, chairs, blankets, or anything to make your picnic day fun!  Wander around the farm, look at the goats, and enjoy the view.  Bjorn will probably get a good bonfire going also.  Feel free to bring along some 356 parts to sell or swap too.
 
POG will provide sausages & hot dogs, potato salad, Barbara’s fritters, soft drinks, water and beer.  But if you are concerned about reaching into a common cooler for a beverage or accepting a food item cooked on the grill, that’s OK.  Bring anything that you will want to eat or drink.  But note that we are not requesting any pot-luck sharing of food stuffs (e.g. appetizers, sides, desserts) this year.  However if you want to bring a food specialty item to share, that will be your choice.  But, again, there’s no obligation to do so.
 
And note that POG will not be providing wine or distilled spirits – you’ll have to bring those, if that’s your choice of beverages.  Also, to help Bjorn and Barbara, we will need some folks to help cooking the sausages on the grill.  So bring your grilling apron.
 
Please let Bjorn or Barbara know if you plan to attend so that we can make sure that we have enough of the food & beverages that POG will provide.  Their email address is: stalesenbjorn@comcast.net
