Mark your calendar for AKSS summer BBQ and softball game
If it's summer in DC, it's time for very un-Alaskan weather and the annual Alaska State Society Summer BBQ. Here are the preliminary details of the event:
When: Sunday, July 18 10:30-2pm
Where: Joe Hensley Park, Alexandria - (a long walk from the Eisenhower Ave Metro Stop, but a quick drive with ample parking)
As in years past, we'll be having a family-friendly BBQ along with a potluck. Prizes will be awarded for the best side dishes in the potluck. We'll also have some refreshing, cold beverages on hand.
In addition to the great food, we'll be having the second Battle of Alaska Softball Game. Last year, "Team Anchorage" and "Team Rest of Alaska" ended in a hard-fought tied score, so we expect that this year's game will be a quite a grudge match! Congressman Don Young will be throwing out the first pitch of the game to get us started. If you're interested in playing on one of the teams, respond to this email and let us know which team you'd like to play for. All levels of experience and ages are encouraged to participate.
Special thanks go to VanNess Feldman for offering their generous support to help sponsor this event.
We'll be providing more information on the event and potluck closer to the date, and please make sure you become a 2010 member of AKSS if you have't already.
