Downey DuckScuba Club North            Diver     

Mark your social calendar for Scuba Club North's 5th Annual Picnic.  As we have done in the past we will gather at the expansive Eric Huber estate, 4195 Maple Lane, Allison Park, PA 15101. Festivities commence on Saturday, September 22nd, around 3:00 PM.  We will show scuba pics and videos outdoors after the sun sets.  Select episodes of Sea Hunt will also make an appearance.

Burgers, hot dogs and possibly other gourmet grilled cuisine items will be provided.  Since we do not collect dues, a small gratuity to Eric would be appreciated.  Bring your favorite side dish or dessert, beverage and camp chair and join us around the fire.  Please RSVP to either this email or click 'Join' or 'Going' on the club's Facebook page so that we know how many burgers, dogs and chicken parts to bring.  Note that clicking 'Like' on Facebook is appreciated but it doesn't indicate that you are attending.

For those who don't do MapQuest or GPS you can chose from the following directions.

If traveling on Route 8: Mt. Royal is accessed between Duncan Road and Wildwood Road. Mt. Royal connects at a 3-way intersection with the Southbound side of Route 8. So if traveling Rte. 8 South turn right onto Mt. Royal at the traffic light (past Wildwood), or if traveling Rte. 8 North you will turn left at the traffic light onto Mt. Royal (past Duncan). Mt. Royal twists and turns but you are traveling mostly South. Travel past the three-way intersection with Sample Road. Then follow "From Mount Royal - Sample Rd intersection" below.

From parts West you can 1) travel McKnight Road to Peebles, then at the intersection with the Passavant Hospital campus turn right onto Sample Road. Or 2) take McKnight to Babcock, then just as you come to North Park make a right onto Hemlock. If 3) traveling through North Park, head South on Babcock past the lake, up the hill and left onto Hemlock. Hemlock terminates at Sample. At the end of Hemlock make a left onto Sample. 

All 3 Western routes have you traveling Northeast on Sample, which terminates at Mt. Royal. Make a right onto Mt. Royal. Then follow "From Mount Royal - Sample Rd intersection" below.

From Mount Royal - Sample Rd intersection: 
- Travel 0.5 miles South
- Left onto Lynnhaven, travel 0.2 miles
- Left onto Maple Lane
- 4195 Maple Lane is on the left

If you are confused or hopelessly lost let me know and I'll make sure you can get there. 

Looking forward to seeing you all at the picnic!
