Hankyu Kobe Line to Shukugawa. Transfer to the Koyoen Line (north, only direction) and get off at first stop, Kurakuen. Stop at the conbini, buy your food and drink, then walk east to the river. You should see us just southeast of the station on the west bank of the Shukugawa.

Advance RSVP is not required, but if you're pretty sure you'll come, it would really be helpful if you could send a quick note about how many people you will bring, food/beverage preferences, etc.:
Please bring along friends who normally don't come to KMUG meetings. But by all means, despite the short notice, take yourself to the river on May 26!
Check here on Sunday morning if the weather looks iffy - we'll post a cancellation noticehere if the weather forecast conspires against us.
In years past, we held our picnics in July, at the height of the rainy season, at Hankyu Kurakuen Station (see map), on the lovely Shukugawa River. Some genius reminded us of the obvious, that, hey, May is a much, much nicer month for picnicking than July! So shall it be.
So mark a bold KMUG on your calendar for May 26 and come on down to the river around 1:00 PM. The club will provide "starter" drinks (beer, soda, water) and food (pizza, chicken wings, salad), with a close-by convenience store ('conbini') and a Daiei at nearby Shukugawa Stn. for refills you can easily pick up on your own. By all means, if you have a "special dish" you'd like to share with fellow Mac Freaks, bring it along.
