Hello Fellow Club Members and Friends,

The GCARC Annual Club Picnic was successful.  We had to change the date several times do to important events. We had to come up with creative ways to cook Hot Dogs and Hamburgers. In spite of all our problems a good time was had by all. We had good food, music and most importantly friendship and brotherhood.  I have to say once again the food was fantastic.

If you weren’t able to attend this year then plan for next years Annual Picnic.  Anyone with pictures please send to webmaster@gulfcoastarc.org for inclusion on the website. Pictures will be uploaded soon.
