Our Big Picnic Is Sunday, July 30!

The Shy Cloud Social Club Summer Picnic will take place from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 30, at the San Diego Mission Bay Boat & Ski Club.

Desert MusicOur big picnic actually will be a small party happening within a much larger event, the long-anticipated CD Release Picnic for The Cathryn Beeks Ordeal's new album, "Desert Music," which was produced by Jeff Berkley, of Berkley Hart and Citizen Band.

If you came to my May 13th photo show, "Anything For The Shot!", you were at a Cathryn Beeks/Listen Local event and you therefore already know how tremendous they are! This picnic will be one of her greatest gatherings yet, which is why I asked her if I could make my summer picnic a part of it. She loved the idea and said, "That would be AWESOME!"

Music will be provided from 12:45 p.m. onward by Amy Garcia, Podunk Nowhere, Simeon Flick, Barbara Nesbitt, The Cathryn Beeks Ordeal, Sven-Erik Seaholm, Steph Johnson, Lisa Sanders, SweetTooth, Christopher Dale, Deadline Friday, and probably several surprise guests.

You can't bring your own alcohol onto the premises, but the Club features a full bar for your imbibing pleasure. You can and should bring your own picnic lunch and soft drinks or water. BBQs aren't allowed, so bring food that is already cooked. Cathryn said you also could have a pizza delivered there if you want! There is lots of free parking, and a great big lawn by the water for your blanket and picnic spread.

The agenda for the day is below. Please come and hang out the whole day if you can, and bring anyone and everyone (pets are ok, too). It's gonna be a really chill day, as most Cathryn Beeks-organized events are!
