For several years, Star Base Andromeda's annual Club Picnics were held in the fall, at Roper Park (a.k.a. Interstate Park in north Lincoln), beginning at shelter #2. The park is located just west of Interstate 180, between Cornhusker Highway and Superior St., and can be reached off of 1st street, coming from either Cornhusker or Superior and turning East on Fairfield St.
The picnics are open to all science fiction fans from the Lincoln vicinity, including those who are members of other regional clubs. In addition to cooking out, we have a frisbee golf competition on the park's 27-hole frisbee golf course.
Attendees bring their own grillables and drinks, as well as something to share with others. Paper plates, cups, napkins, plastic tableware, as well as chips and other munchables will be provided by SBA. The club also provides a ice-chest to store everyone's drinks in while we're "golfing". Anyone who can bring a spare frisbee is encouraged to do so.
In more recent years (2008 and 2010), Club Potluck Picnics have been held at the home of SBA member Brian and his wife Susan, and participants have engaged in a neighborhood round of Disc Golf.
Below are some photos from past Frisbee Golf picnics -- the closest thing Star Base Andromeda currently has to an "annual" group photograph!
