In the past this has included a lab group soccer match, slow bike races, competitive rounds of rock-paper-scissors, baby races (really), croquet, frisbee/disc golf of varying sorts and more. Things wind down with a potluck dinner and s'mores around the fire. Thank you to David and Jaye Houle for again hosting this really fun day. To join the planning group, email Emily Lemmon, Emily DuVal or Joel Trexler. More specific calls for setup and cleanup volunteers as well as signups for food will take place in mid- to late-November.
