August Event: Convergence at Springbrook

mercpool

On Saturday, August 17 (rain date Sunday, August 18) at Noon, members Andrew Dan and Rob Neighbour are again hosting a summer cookout and pool party at Andrew's home in Silver Spring, MD. This is a Tri-Valley and Straight Eights joint event, which gives you the opportunity to catch up with others in our extended LCCI family. We will also be joined by some members of the Washington, DC chapter of the National Gay Pilots Association (NGPA) – Rob's OTHER club.

There will be great food, tunes, socializing, and our cars will be mingling with us in the large shady back yard.Snacks and beverages will be available as we get started, and the barbeque will be fired up around 1 PM.

The location is the home where Andrew grew up. It is a large '50s brick and stone Cape Cod situated on picturesque acreage, just off New Hampshire Ave about three miles outside of the DC beltway in the Springbrook community of Silver Spring, MD.

There is a fabulous in-ground swimming pool, with a new patio, so bring your swimwear and towel if you want to take a dip.

As long as the ground is dry, we will be parking on the green near the picnic and pool area, where we can place our lawn chairs under the trees while enjoying music, beverages, and a meal in close proximity to the cars.
