Osborne TPK is fine---the bridges that washed out were on Route 5 close to and 
inside Richmond and are now fixed.  However, the closest way to the picnic from 
Dutch Gap may be Route 10 south/east to 295 north to Varina exit (and follow 
directions from 295).  Save $2.00 also!

Yes, by boat is best!  See you Saturday!  It's supposed to be hot, so bring 
your bathing suit.

I note that Chesterfield County is presenting a boat trip to Brown and 
Williamson park at 7-9 am that morning, and my wife Anne is signed up for that 
trip. They are to meet at the Dutch Gap parking lot, putting her only 1.1 mile 
from the picnic. However, after the trip she will have to travel 25 minutes by 
car, all the way to route 895, to get to the picnic (or she could take a boat 
and get there quicker). 

I will be there, but I wonder if there are any problems getting to the place 
due to Hurricane Gaston last year. I heard something about Osborne Turnpike

Hi RAS members and friends,

Don't forget about the RAS Picnic, which is Saturday, June 25 (rain date 
Sunday, June 26).  It's a really great time, and Nelda and Buz Snyder always go 
way out on a limb to make it enjoyable for everyone. Please come for awhile 
Saturday and bird, eat, swim, fish, go boating, talk about the latest gossip, 
walk through Nelda's great garden, see lots of hummers, or whatever you want. 
Bring friends and family, a food item to share, and chairs. You owe it to 
yourself to come, unless you really don't enjoy great surroundings, fun people, 
and all the other fun things you can do at the picnic. The Snyder's place is 
really cool!

See your copy of the Thrasher, or go to the RAS website for more details on how 
to get there, what to bring, and other information.

The RAS website link is as follows: 
Note that there is an error in header of the website notice. The time is listed 
as 7:00 PM, which is obviously not correct. You can come as early as 8 AM if 
you want to bird early, or around 9:30 AM or leter if you want to do other 
things. Lunch will be around noon. Stay until late afternoon if you want, but 
some of us will be leaving mid-afternoon to attend another event.

If you need information besides that in the Thrasher or website, email us at 
warfield101@xxxxxxxxxxx, or (last resort) call 743-1479.

See you there!

Al & Linda Warfield
