We had various activities such as tug of war for all ages, cricket, volleyball and for kids - candy picking, musical chair, candy bar hunt, face painting, lemon & spoon race, needle craft competition and various water games. We had our world famous SBGOC picnic auction. This generated a record breaking total of around $6000.
