Sat May 21, Paddle Tampier Lake Then Lakeside BYO Picnic 10am  We had lots of fun last year, so let’s enjoy this again. There is a nice boat ramp to bring your own boat (no gas motors) or you can rent! Don’t like boating? Come out a little later for the picnic and some outdoor fun with friends. Here are the details: Tampier Lake is located near Orland Park at 131st and Wolf Rd. in Cook County. Parking, launch and rentals are on the south side of 131st just west of Wolf Road. Boat rental opens at 9am.

 

Rentals are first come first served, but you can reserve up to 24hours before. To reserve your selection call 708-830-5194. This is what Tampier Lake has to offer for rent: Single Kayak - $20/hr; Rowboat, Canoe - $25/hr; Tandem Kayak - $30/hr; Fishing Boat with Battery & Trolling Motor (2 hr min) - $25/hr. There are also Pedal boats for rent. A group of people at a picnic by a lake

 

 

They also have a concession stand for food, beverages and fishing bait. Restrooms open when boat rental is open. Be there a little before 10am to rent or launch your boat at their easy in and out boat ramp. The picnic will follow as paddlers finish. We will set up a blue shade tent just west of the boat house. Bring your sunhat, sunscreen, picnic chair, water, and food, along with a beverage of choice for the picnic. This is a fishing lake, so you can also fish from your boat or shore.  Because this is a weather permitting event, please sign up on Meetup. It will help track our numbers and let me send out updates as the event draws near. - Janice

Thurs June 2, PSC General Meeting at Emmett’s.  This will be our only meeting for June.  Please RSVP on Meetup by the week before if you are planning to come to Emmett’s. This is to give the restaurant an idea of how many servers they will need and improve service. 

 

 

Plan to place food and beverage orders by 6:30pm. This way the servers will not be running in and out so much during the meeting. The servers will bring out the checks for each party prior to the 7pm start of the meeting - at that time you will have the option of paying your check or giving them a credit card to hold the tab open and close it out later in the evening.
