Welcome Back BBQ

Our annual Welcome Back BBQ at Edworthy Park in Picnic Site #2.

Young adults (those between 17 and 30) are invited to come hang around an open campfire co-hosted by the United/Presbyterian Campus Ministry YYC, the University of Calgary Lutheran Community, the U of C Student Rhythms Drum Club and the MRU Drum Circle.

WHAT: Campfire/Wiener Roast/Drum Jam Sesh (and don't worry, if you're not a drummer, there will be plenty of food (vegetarian included), conversation and other fun options)

WHERE: Picnic Site 2 at Edworthy Park. It's at the far end of the path from the parking lot on the other side of the railway from the river. There's a map here: https://www.calgary.ca/CSPS/Parks/Documents/Locations/edworthy-map.pdf?noredirect=1

WHEN: 5:00 Wednesday, September 7 (or drop by anytime afterward until about 9:00)

WHAT TO BRING: We've got the food covered including halal and vegetarian, you're welcome to bring anything else to contribute to the night, but the only thing you need is You :). LAWN CHAIRS are very helpful, as are any and all MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS. Jammin' around the campfire is our fave! Bring guitars or anything else you got kickin' around to contribute to the music of the night ;). If you happen to have a songbook(s) of good campfire tunes, that would also be great!While the campfire is a great way to stay warm, its also a great idea to bring warm clothes, blankets, ect...

Finally, FUN STUFF: Hula Hoops, Frisbees, Slackline, Soccer Balls, Poi, Hammocks etc. can all contribute to having a blast at the park! Please bring any that you have.

We must remind you that this is at a PUBLIC park, and due to Calgary bylaws we must ask you to refrain from bringing alchool to this event as it is illegal to drink in a public park.

Don't forget to pass on the word and invite friends! All are welcome.

Later Event: September 11
