Houston, TX -- September 23, 2000. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day at Bear Creek Park on Saturday September 23rd. The weather was glorious! Approximately 30 club members and families showed up for the Swedish Club picnic. It was a good afternoon to sit around and visit, and to get to know other folks in the club.

Picnics are, by nature, rather laid back events. This was no exception. We all did a lot of visiting, but there were some activities as well. Just about everyone participated in one contest or another, and we had a lot of different winners. The contests included a meat ball toss (partners throw and catch frozen Swedish meatballs), a scavenger hunt, and a water balloon toss.

The contest winners each received an IKEA gift certificate. The contest winners were:

Meatball Toss Lars Olsen & Greg Melrose
Scavenger Hunt Al Clarke & Carol Clarke
Erich Wolz
Water Balloon Toss I Paul Sundquist
Steven Sundquist
Water Balloon Toss II Christian Rasmussen
Pelle Fisk

The picnic this year was a lot of fun. Plan on being a part of Picnic 2001 next Fall!
