Salisbury Outing September 12th

A Saturday outing to Salisbury Beach was well attended by 20 members.
We had a great time playing or learning to play “corn hole” in the parking lot.
When the tide was out we had some natural hunting while a seeded hunt was set up on the beach.
Following that hunt we had another for ZOOM regulars and went back to the lot to eat pizza, award prizes for the hunt tokens and have a few more prize drawings.
Lingering in the sun we swapped hunting plans and made it home to rest, exhausted by a great day in the sun.

September 13th Meeting Notes

Our meeting started with members chatting about the successful outing on Saturday at Salisbury beach.
