Big 10 Picnic Update

September 20, 2011 by Justin Bugajski

Join Big Ten alumni of all ages for our Annual Big Ten Alumni Picnic in San Francisco on Sunday, October 2, from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. We’ll provide the activities, games and fun as we join other Bay Area Big Ten alumni from Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Purdue, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Penn State, Wisconsin and Nebraska. (Northwestern will not be participating this year).

We have reserved a beautiful site near San Francisco Bay and overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. Little Marina Green is a large grass area just west of Marina Green and east of Crissy Field. (Marina Blvd at Lyon Street, across from the Exploratorium).

We’ll have volleyball teams, water balloon toss, bocce ball and Big Ten Jeopardy. Wear your school T-shirt and bring the kids. Just check in at your school’s sign in table when you arrive for your wristband and to sign up for any teams and games you are interested in. Parking is free along Yatch Road although spaces are limited. Make sure to register in advance to take advantage of your membership benefits.

The picnic is FREE for MSUAA members, provided you RSVP by this Thursday, September 22. Non-MSUAA member cost is $5. If you RSVP after September 22, cost is $5 for everybody, member or non-member.
