Orioles Bullpen Picnic and Ballgame

It's finally here! The Columbia Ski Club Orioles Bullpen Picnic and ballgame will be Sunday, August 25

! The picnic starts at 11:30 (arrive early!) and the game starts at 1:05. Our seats are in the shade in the upper deck right near 3rd base. We will be playing the Tampa Bay Rays. Maybe we won't be in the thick of the pennant race, but it is still baseball, right? Still a relaxing day at the ballpark. The 90-minute picnic includes BEER (unlimited), a couple sandwiches, and unlimited sides, soda, and bottled water. It's a great time.  

Total Cost: $43 for the picnic, game, and mailing the tickets to you. Payments must be made in advance, by August 5 (that's BEFORE the August meeting). Pay by check (in person or by U.S. Mail), cash, PayPal, or Venmo. See flyer for details on paying, picnic, ballpark logistics, etc.
Please let Scott know at a meeting or by email if you have questions, or let him know are interested, even if you aren't ready to pay yet. We have to have 25 people.

Toby's Diner Theater - Mama Mia
Event Start Date: 8/25/2019 5:00 PM
Sunday, August 25th at 5pm. “ Back by popular demand, Mamma Mia! A mother, a daughter.  Three possible dads and a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget.  Audiences around the world have fallen in love with the music and the story that make Mamma Mia the feel good show of our time.  The magic of ABBA’s timeless hit music (Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes it All and many, many more…) tells this story of love, laughter and friendship.”  Personally, I think this is the best show I have ever seen at Toby’s.  If you missed it last year you don’t want to miss it this year!  Tickets are $54 and will be collected at the July meeting.  Contact Sue for more info, 301 498-8462 or  The ticket includes your dinner, show, coffee or tea and a $5 tip.
