Fun at Gray’s Lake

Several brothers got together for the Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi Summer Picnic at Gray’s Lake Park in Des Moines. The afternoon picnic included grilling, Frisbee, and renting a canoe and stand-up paddle board.

Exciting Summer plans and happenings were discussed. Lots of food was eaten… even by those who didn’t really plan to eat anything at the picnic. The awesome menu included bratwurst (with sauerkraut optional) grilled corn on the cob, potato salad, bbq-flavored chips, chips with Queso dip, baked beans, and cookies.

There was some discussion about the baked beans and how they should be served. Some people thought they should be heated up while others were just thinking about serving at room temperature (it was a warm day at the park, overcast skies and breeze helped keep it pleasant). Answer the poll below about how you like baked beans:

And the store-bought cookies got spiced up a bit after they were heated up on a paper plate put on the grill. All was very tasty.
After lunch, brother headed over to the concession and rental area and took a canoe and stand-up paddle board out onto the lake for an hour. It was a good workout and fun way to enjoy the outdoors.

There are several events coming up. Check out the calendar for the late August happy hour and September happy hour.
