The Degerberg Academy
June 2000 Picnic

The shots below were taken on June 25, 2000. We had such a good time we got a little "Picnic Crazy" and decided to have two more, one in July (which Yvonne missed, because it was scheduled the same weekend as Necon), and one in August. The weather was perfect for both the picnics Yvonne attended, and she overate terribly at both. It's a good thing she gets her exercise during training! Remember: Don't hesitate to drop Yvonne an email (von @ if your name should be in the caption box next to one of these photos. You can click on any small image to see the full-sized version!
