It's that time again... the TOC Annual Picnic!

We have had many memorable events, have met many wonderful people, and we look forward to meeting more of you!

If you haven't been to an event yet, this is a perfect opportunity to meet the volunteers and members -- come find out what we're all about.

Where and When?:

We've booked site #18 on Olympic island. See "How to Get There" directions below for more details.

We'll kick things off on the island at 11am and stay until the late afternoon. Attendees are welcome to drift in and out throughout the event, though if you're interested in the potluck, please see the next section for timing specifics.


Optionally, we'll be having a potluck at the picnic! Here are the details you need if you'd like to participate...
  • bring a dish to share, which can include something to throw on the BBQ (please no Schneider's Steakettes, these tend to make a mess :)
  • be present in the range of Noon-2pm when we'll focus on the main part of the meal. This is also the period when the barbecue will be available
  • It's very common to be slightly overloaded with snack items like chips - just putting it out there :)
  • Bring a reusable plate and any cutlery you'll need
  • Please make sure that when you leave, you take anything that remains of what you've shared. This just makes it easier for us to clean-up the site afterwards.

Looking forward to sharing with you.


Beyond meeting new people and socializing, we'll organize a couple of pick-up games (likely soccer, volleyball or frisbee). Otherwise, if you don't already know, the Island is a fun destination in its own right, and we'll detail some of the built in amenities as well.

  • Bring your bike, or rent one on the island
  • Swim or lounge on the beach
  • Bring your kids and go over to Centreville< /a >

What Else?

Is there another activity you're hoping for? Bring your gear out, a lot of things will form up on an ad hoc basis. Email Andrew with questions or details.

NOTE: Though we all hope for a sunny day, the picnic will take place rain or shine.

Required Items to Bring:
  • non-alcoholic beverages
  • sunscreen
  • As Justin says: a positive attitude :)
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
  • food to share
  • frisbees and gear for other activities
  • bikes

How to Get There:
Event Directions:The ferry docks are located at the foot of Bay St. (beside the Westin Harbour Castle).

The location is site #18, located on Olympic Island. Take the Centre Island Ferry and go to your left as you get off. It's a short walk from the ferry and close to Centreville.
