Special Events


We’ll have to plan another soon. Any organizers out here?


Annual Scavenger Hunt Run – August 26, 2023
We started from the Presidio Officers Club and the “route” covered the west side of the Presidio. We didn’t know this in advance. Thanks Patrick for organizing the challenging scavenger hunt and fortifying us before and after the run. The pineapple buns and cocktail buns got the gears turning. There was lots of thinking and googling as we had to exercise our brains as well as run. Where’s the 32 plot garden and the final resting place of furry animals. And which creek has transparent wings and big eyes?

May 25, 2023 – A fun evening of great conversations and food was shared at Lusk Rooftop 25 Bar. We had to work for it by walking up a long flight of stairs. Among some yummy dishes – the pea and mint hummus, lobster guac but the highlight was definitely the brownies.

Among the celebrations – Lisa is our second member to complete the Abbot World Marathon Majors.

Holiday Party 2022 – It was a celebration of friendship filled with terrific conversations and a delicious buffet of foods. We were having such a fun time we lingered around to cheer the England vs France game of the World Cup. Sorry we didn’t take a picture earlier to catch everyone.
