We ask people to check in and get a badge since this is often the first time that BWF gets all of the hosts and students together.
The weather can be rainy if we have the picnic in late September but the positive thing is that the trees may be in full color. Even with overcast skies, Lake Lemon is a beautiful place to visit in the Fall.
One of the first things to do is to set the tables. Then the food flows in.
The tables overflow with food and after a welcome and directions on where the main course and desserts can be found, the eating begins.
After a good meal, let the games begin. For some, the American football is a really odd thing to try to throw.
The two man race requires people to team with someone to move an object held between them (in this case a bag of potato chips) to the finish line.
And then there is the egg race.
When the lake is full, we have some wonderful Bloomingtonians who offer boat rides to those who sign up.
Sometimes they even let the students “drive” the boat.
All in all it is a good day and people sometimes jump for joy.
