NWIM Annual Picnic

The home of Dr. Bob Warner, 1801 Longview Loop, Council Bluffs, IA

Please bring a dish to share and lawn chairs. The Ex-Comm will provide pulled pork sandwiches, hotdogs, brats and such and pop and beer. If you need a particular beverage, bring it. Bring a potential Mensan with you! Dr. Bob has a swimming pool, so bring your suit. Directions to 1801 Longview: Take I-80 to Mall-of-the-Bluffs exit (Exit 5), which is on the east side of Council Bluffs, turn right, away from the mall. Turn right at the second stoplight and get in the left-hand lane. Go under the railroad trestle and take the first left. Go up and around the curving road about a mile or two. Note that the house numbers are on small signs near the road, very convenient. Big red brick house on the right, set back from the street on top of its own hill. For further information, contact Kirk Johnson at (712) 323-1454 (res) or (402) 659-4154 (cell), or email to captnkirko@cox.net. This is one of our most popular events, great chance for members to come out and meet fellow Mensans.
