Annual Survivors' Banquet
A celebration of life, liberty, and the pursuit of mushrooms!
The annual Survivors' Banquet is a time of celebration, honor, and business where we gather together thankful for making it through another season alive! We present the "Golden Mushroom Award" which honors long term service to the club, and we convene the annual member's meeting to announce the newly elected Officers and Board Members. All this takes place amidst delicious food and drink. We encourage members old and new to attend.
March 16, 2013 - 49th Annual Survivor's Banquet and Annual Business Meeting
We gather each year in March to congratulate ourselves for making it through another season of finding, identifying, cooking, and eating mushrooms. This is also our annual business meeting when we present our newly elected officers and trustees. The theme this year will be “Clothes for the Compleat Mushroom Hunter,” so please come dressed in your finest foraging outfits for the field and forest. To provide more space this year we are moving our event to the Polish Home Association 1714 18th Avenue, just off E. Madison St. on Capitol Hill (Click here for directions) The social hour will begin at 6:30 pm followed by a potluck dinner at 7:30 pm. Our potluck has a slightly different format this year. Chef Michael Blackwell will make his famous mushroom soup, and also a vegetarian and a non-vegetarian entrée. Therefore, please make and bring an appropriate appetizer, salad, bread, or dessert as your contribution. Be sure to list the ingredients and the species of any wild mushrooms included in your dish. We will have a banquet permit, so please feel free to bring beer, wine, or the beverage of your choice to accompany the meal.
We will have a silent auction and door prizes. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase for an original framed photo taken by Machel Spence. The winner will be drawn at the end of the banquet.
There will be a $5 per person fee to cover room rental and incidentals, and to indicate how many will be attending. Attendance will still be somewhat limited, so please sign up early to avoid disappointment! PSMS Members must be pre-registered to attend. You must be a PSMS member or the partner of a PSMS member to attend.
