The Hyde Street Pier Model Shipwrights’ annual barbecue took place on Saturday, September 6th, and I think everyone agrees that it was a rousing success. Taking place at the home of member Paul Reck and his wife Nancy, this was one of the best of the annual gatherings to date. Not only did we have great weather and a great turnout, but member Carlos Oliva even provided us with some live Ukelele music to add to the atmosphere.
The food was good, the company was great – a terrific time was had by all. It’s a shame that it happens only once a year.
