2018 June 2nd Meeting and Anniversary Picnic – A WEEK EARLY this year

This year’s anniversary picnic will be held West Bush Lake Park in Bloomington. You may remember this as the site of the 2016 All-Ships Picnic, a nice grove tucked in the trees.   The picnic area has close and easy access to Horseshoe Courts, Sand Volleyball, Fishing docs on the lake, and playground for the younglings.   Even more importantly, the site has drinking fountains and a permanent restroom right there.  The street address is 9401 W. Bush Lake Rd, Bloomington MN.

We have plenty of room, so invite anyone from the fan community or families that you meet.  The anniversary picnic will again be a potluck, so please bring something to grill and something to share. It will also be a BYOB event. We’ll be providing plates, napkins, cups, and utensils (of the paper and plastic variety).

Also, feel free to bring along your toys as long as you don’t mind them getting lost in the weeds or the lake.


ZooBoo 2014 is a Rousing Success!!

NokomisBoo1Zoo Boo 2014 completed last night, with over 21,000 guests through the gate!  Five perfect days of weather brought out between 2,500 and 5,500 guests each night.

The Nokomis populated the Halloween station, the first point the crowd saw after entering the event.  Our smiling faces set the crowd on their way thorough Trick or Treat Land.  A giant smiling Jack O Lantern face on the 'Corn Crib' cage completed the mood. NokomisBoo2

A dozen of our heartiest members worked the nights of the event for well over 50 hours' effort just in those two weekends, and four of our members put in well over 100 hours each during the year long preparation event.  Thank You to All!  We can't do it without you.
