The PAS Picnic this year will return to the Sarrat Family Estate located in Covington on the bank of the Boguy Falaya River. Our picnic has been at this location a number of times over the past 30 or so years. It is a great location for a picnic! Date - Saturday, May 20th

This year the club is providing all food (hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad and all fixings) We are also providing napkins, plates, knives and forks. We are not providing drinks or ice, that is up to you, the individual to bring what you would like to drink. Additionally if anyone would like to bring their own dessert, bring that too, either for yourself or to share. Anyone with special dietary needs would need to provide their own food, be it ostrich eggs, bat wings or monkey tails......or maybe a vegetarian plate of some kind.

Food provided by the club is for club members and for that we need a headcount so that we can make the appropriate purchases. (A club member is defined as the paying club member with his or her spouse and with their children that live at home - meaning generally children under the age of 18.) All others that you are bringing with you as invited guests have to be accounted for and if they want a burger, hot dog, potato salad, etc., there is a fee of $10.00 per person. Please let us know in advance, if you are attending and who will be attending with you be it other immediate family members - your spouse and your children or a friend or relative. You can do that by responding to this post. right here.

Please, please do not come to the picnic if you have not notified us that you are coming and we need that information by Tuesday, May 16th so that we can purchase what we need.

See the attached map for the picnic directions. The picnic will begin at 10:30 am and end at around 5 pm - could go later.

An address would be helpful for GPS. Nice map!

The address for the picnic is:

19096 L'Esperance Lane, Covington, LA 70433. When I type that in to MapQuest, it is rewritten as "Lesperance". The key thing to remember is to turn left off of Hwy 190 at the Popeye's Fried Chicken. (If you go to the bridge in Covington, you have gone too far. Turn around when you can and turn right at the Popeye's.)

The road by Popeye's is Riverside Dr. Continue on Riverside until the road makes a sharp left turn. The entrance to the property is right at this turn. Walter Sarrat will have signs up. Continue on the gravel road until you see where everyone else has cars parked.

Remember to bring your own drinks and your own folding chairs if you like to sit occasionally.

Saturday, May 20th from 10:30 am to 5 pm.
