Looking forward to seeing all of you on Saturday (with families please) . Please make sure you read the directions for our Picnic Area below (in case this is your first time)

I have also added the Mapquest Location for Sunnybrook Park incase anybody needs it.

Please bring our own soft drinks, styrofoam plates / cups/ napkins/spoons/forks etc. Please bring lawn chairs, Duree/sheets.
If you have a Stove, pls bring that along to to heat up the food if required. If someone has a digital camera, please bring that along so that we can e-mail the pictures to XLRI at Jamshedpur for their hosting in their web. (will being mine but having more choice of pictures is always better!!)
Do check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. The picnic will be held rain or shine.
Those whose parents/in-laws are in Toronto, please bring them too and am sure they will have a good time. They are all invited as part of our families.
We could also have games for the kids and play some cricket - and Fred has a cricket set so we can play some tennis ball cricket. Those who have Frisbees/Balls, or any other sport items, please bring them along too.
Fred will be bringing a small stove and will make 'Chai' for all of us.
See you ALL! Let’s make this a resounding success.
PS: if you are aware of any new Xlers that have moved to Toronto, please circulate to them and also let me have their contact details so I can update the Contact List.
